Preview: 13-8 Chicago Bulls and 17-5 Portland Trail Blazers
December 12th, 2014 at 2:08 PM
Initially, one would think the Portland Trail Blazers are in a class above the Chicago Bulls right now. The Blazers are 17-5, they play in the incredibly difficult Western Conference, and they have Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge – two of the best players at their respective positions in the...

Chicago Bulls (2-1) Vs. Orlando Magic (2-0) Preview: Black Magic
November 6th, 2012 at 12:42 PM
Let's go back to January 2012. Suppose a 2-1 Chicago Bulls team were to take on an undefeated Orlando Magic team in Chicago. That would be exciting, right? Derrick Rose taking on Dwight Howard? Fast forward 10 months. Same setup. A 2-1 Bulls team taking on an undefeated Magic team. Yeah...about...

Pacific Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: I Can’t Stand the Lakers
October 25th, 2012 at 6:20 AM
  Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season. Last year, I tried to cram everything into two parts — three, actually, if you include the preview for just the Bulls — but that was impractical and not particularly well organized. This...

Southeast Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: Let It Go, Guys, Let It Go
October 24th, 2012 at 7:00 AM
Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season. Last year, I tried to cram everything into two parts — three, actually, if you include the preview for just the Bulls — but that was impractical and not particularly well organized. This...

ESPN.com is doing its second annual #NBARank, in which they rank every single NBA player. We here at Bulls 101 will be taking a brief look at where each of the Bulls players falls along the way.

NBA Releases Full 2012-2013 Schedule: Omer Asik Returns to United Center on Christmas Day
July 26th, 2012 at 7:28 PM
All right, the schedule's out. We know when and where the Bulls will be playing this year. Let's face it, though: After the events of this offseason so far, we pretty much know how the season will turn out. The Bulls, behind the genius of Tom Thibodeau, will compete and...

Chicago Bulls Offseason: Proposed Changes to Build a Future Title Winner
July 12th, 2012 at 11:35 PM
In the days leading up to April 28, Chicago Bulls fans were clamoring excitedly about the upcoming playoffs. It was as if everyone were standing in line at an amusement park waiting to get onto a brand new roller coaster that promised to deliver on all fronts. The regular season...

Chicago Bulls Announce 2012 Summer League Roster
July 12th, 2012 at 2:24 PM
As the Chicago Bulls continue to try to trade Kyle Korver, wait for Omer Asik to sign his offer sheet and show no interest in Dwight Howard, they did release a bit of news that some may or may not find interesting. That would be the roster that will participate in...

Chicago Bulls Stuck in Neutral as Other Contenders Improve
July 9th, 2012 at 3:17 PM
The Miami Heat have added Ray Allen for cheap. The Los Angeles Lakers have landed Steve Nash in exchange for draft picks. The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Joe Johnson and are possibly on the verge of getting Dwight Howard for very little. Countless other teams have made moves to bolster their...

Houston Rockets to Pursue Chicago Bulls’ Omer Asik?
June 29th, 2012 at 9:40 AM
Before the 2012 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets did all they could to stockpile picks in order to try and move up high in the lottery. The idea, at least most presumed, was to offer the Orlando Magic a worthwhile package for disgruntled superstar Dwight Howard. However, the Rockets were...

Chicago Bulls Laying Low as 2012 NBA Draft Arrives
June 28th, 2012 at 11:15 AM
The 2012 NBA Draft has arrived, which means we're less than 24 hours away from the death of fake Twitter accounts that spew false rumors/deals that some people, even respected journalists/bloggers, somehow buy into. It was somewhat funny at first, but after awhile, it just got old. Although now that...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Joakim Noah
June 11th, 2012 at 2:38 PM
Oh, Joakim Noah. From your draft day Carrot Top impression to dunking on Paul Pierce in the 2009 playoffs, to everything else you've done since your arrival in Chicago, you've become a fan favorite and something of a modern day Bill Laimbeer: the guy you love if he's on your team...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Taj Gibson
June 5th, 2012 at 8:25 PM
I love Taj Gibson. I figured I'd just start with that, get it out there so you all know what you're getting into. Taj is probably my third favorite player on the Bulls, behind only Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Having watched him since he came into the league for the...

New Orleans Hornets Win NBA Draft Lottery; What Does It Mean for the Chicago Bulls?
June 2nd, 2012 at 3:41 PM
After a full 48 hours of conspiracy jokes — admittedly, some of them were mine — and complaining/bitterness from fans of teams who lost out — sorry, Bobcats fans, my condolences — it's time to review the NBA Draft Lottery results. ***PHOTO1*** Obviously, the most important result was the one at the...

Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng Named to 2011-12 NBA All-Defensive Second Team
May 23rd, 2012 at 1:23 PM
***PHOTO1*** Chicago Bulls All-Star small forward Luol Deng was named to the 2011-12 NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Wednesday afternoon. It's a well deserved honor for a guy who played a good portion of the season with a torn ligament in his wrist, played the most minutes per game in...

Chicago Bulls Welcome Woeful Washington Wizards to United Center
April 16th, 2012 at 2:04 PM
***PHOTO1*** Hopefully you enjoyed the alliteration in this preview's title, because that's bound to be the most creative/entertaining part of the entire thing. Because quite honestly, it's hard to drum up any type of excitement for a matchup against the Washington Wizards (7 p.m. CT on CSN Chicago). The Wizards are...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Finding Ways to Win
March 26th, 2012 at 10:43 AM
***PHOTO1*** Another week for the Chicago Bulls without Derrick Rose and Rip Hamilton. Three more victories. And more importantly, zero losses.  It has not always been pretty, but the Bulls continue to find different ways to win games without their superstar. Whether it's with a dominant defensive performance, an exhilarating fourth...

Chicago Bulls’ Tom Thibodeau Should Be a Lock for NBA Coach of the Year
March 21st, 2012 at 10:17 AM
***PHOTO1*** 55 games.  That's how many combined games Derrick Rose (14 games), Luol Deng (9 games) and Rip Hamilton (32 games) have missed so far this season. For those keeping track at home, that's the reigning MVP, an All-Star and the Bulls' starting shooting guard all missing significant time.  Throw in the...

Chicago Bulls 85, Orlando Magic 59: Coming up Snake-Eyes
March 19th, 2012 at 10:45 PM
Basketball's a funny sport sometimes. Especially this year. Before the game, I was very seriously considering skipping this game, and would have done so if I hadn't been on recap duty. I figured that the Bulls, on the road and without Derrick Rose, would struggle against an Orlando Magic team that...

Chicago Bulls (37-10) at Orlando Magic (29-17) Preview: Pick Your Poison
March 19th, 2012 at 2:59 PM
When the Chicago Bulls visit the Orlando Magic on Monday night (7 p.m. CT on TNT), Tom Thibodeau will be looking to become the fastest coach to 100 victories. In one-plus seasons, Thibodeau has compiled a 99-30 record in 129 games. The current record is held by current Nets coach...
