Chicago Bulls: Let’s Take a Moment to Appreciate Pau Gasol, Please
December 8th, 2014 at 2:45 PM
For starters, Pau Gasol is not Carlos Boozer. That alone might be enough to satisfy Chicago Bulls fans, and one could hardly blame them. Gasol’s outplayed Boozer in virtually every statistical category this season, and perhaps the most preposterous stat of all is that Gasol has blocked more shots as...

Preview: Chicago Bulls (1-0) and Cleveland Cavaliers (0-1), Rose V. James Tonight on ESPN
October 31st, 2014 at 11:46 AM
Derrick Rose and LeBron James have faced off against one another only three times since the 2010-11 Eastern Conference Finals. Two times in the lockout shortened 2011-12 season, and on opening night last year. That’s it. What was once considered a budding rivalry between James and Rose has the opportunity...

Preview: Chicago Bulls Will Face LeBron, Cleveland Cavaliers for First Time Tonight in Columbus
October 20th, 2014 at 12:19 PM
Chicago and Cleveland are the two favorites in the Eastern Conference to win the NBA title, so any time these two teams get to meet, it’s a treat to basketball fans everywhere, no matter the stakes.

2014-2015 Chicago Bulls Preseason Schedule Released
August 11th, 2014 at 12:55 PM
From October 6 to October 24 the Chicago Bulls will play an eight-game preseason schedule that features an opening night matchup against the Washington Wizards, who ended the Bulls’ season in the playoffs last year. The marquee (if we’re OK with calling a preseason matchup marquee, mind you) is the...

Kevin Love Likely Traded to Cleveland, How This Affects the Chicago Bulls
August 7th, 2014 at 12:22 PM
Kevin Love is a 25-year-old superstar who’s averaged over 19 PPG and 12 RPG through his six-year career. Love is one of eight players to have average those numbers, and the other seven are all in the Hall of Fame. A delightful blend of size, touch, and instinct has thrust...

Sources: Chicago Bulls No Longer in Contention for Kevin Love
July 31st, 2014 at 10:52 AM
Late Wednesday night, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein reported the Chicago Bulls are no longer in pursuit of Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love. The news isn’t much of a surprise, and was already discussed more at length here at Bulls 101. From the ESPN story linked above – "Those sources...

The Bulls Aren’t Trading for Kevin Love, nor Should They
July 23rd, 2014 at 7:49 PM
It’s late July, free agency is on its last legs with only a few signings of significance remaining that could transpire. So naturally, the time to fire up the Kevin Love to the Chicago Bulls rumors couldn’t be more appropriate. To briefly give you a timeline: Love, the disgruntled Minnesota...

Chicago Bulls, Carmelo Anthony May Be Perfect Fit and Could Lead to Championship
June 26th, 2014 at 10:46 AM
Since the Tom Thibodeau era began in Chicago, there’s been one major ongoing area of concern, and no -- its not Derrick Rose’s knees. While Rose’s health remains 24/7 – 365 news; the Tom Thibodeau era, even with Derrick Rose has never amounted to much success on the offensive end....

Arron Afflalo a Potential Option for Chicago Bulls?
June 24th, 2014 at 12:26 PM
Arron Afflalo is not a constellation prize and he’s not the fallback plan. Plan B doesn’t shoot .46/.43/.82 percent from the field, three, and free throw line while dropping 18 points a game and also bearing the brunt of being the only true scoring option on his team. Afflalo probably...

Chicago Bulls (37-31) Vs Minnesota Timberwolves (24-43) Preview: Trying to Build Momentum
March 24th, 2013 at 5:09 PM
Fresh off a win last night against the Indiana Pacers, the Chicago Bulls look to build their momentum with a win tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves. A win would give Chicago their first back-to-back wins since the beginning of February. Since the start of the second half of the season the...

Chicago Bulls (3-2) Vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (4-1) Preview: Love the Team You’re With
November 10th, 2012 at 12:00 PM
For all of our hand wringing as Chicago Bulls fans — hey, that guy's name looks familiar — over Derrick Rose being out, one suspects that Minnesotans scoff at us. The Minnesota Timberwolves, having lost point guard Ricky Rubio to a torn ACL and forward Kevin Love to a broken hand sustained while...

Northwest Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: Mountains to Move
October 23rd, 2012 at 6:30 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...

Minnesota Timberwolves at Chicago Bulls Preview: Where is the Love?
October 19th, 2012 at 11:01 AM
The Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves face off tonight at the United Center. It's the second time in a week these two teams have seen each other, and hopefully this game will be slightly less ugly than the last one. But don't hold your breath. As always, the preseason doesn't matter....

Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng Selected to All-Star Team
February 9th, 2012 at 7:56 PM
After weeks of lobbying from fans, media, teammates and coaches alike, Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng has been rewarded with a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. This is Deng's first All-Star selection and he has now become the 14th All-Star in franchise history. Deng will be joining Derrick...

2012 NBA All-Star Reserves: One Man’s Opinion
February 9th, 2012 at 7:23 AM
Well, we already know who will be starting in Orlando. Now it's just a question of who is going to back them up. They'll be announced later tonight, so I figured I should throw out who I think should get in now, before we all inevitably get upset at the...

Love and Basketball: Chicago Bulls (8-2) at Minnesota Timberwolves (3-6) Preview
January 10th, 2012 at 1:38 PM
***PHOTO1*** Ricky Rubio. Derrick Rose. Get excited. Well, you'll have to sit through Luke Ridnour vs. Rose to start off, but still. Everyone, including Minnesotans, is waiting for Rubio to come in and face off with the reigning MVP. Oh, and the rest of the game might be fun, I guess. For...

The Booze Cruise: Chicago Bulls 92 – Detroit Pistons 68
January 10th, 2012 at 12:13 AM
For the briefest of moments, it looked like the Detroit Pistons (2-7) would actually challenge the Chicago Bulls (8-2) into the fourth quarter on Monday night at the United Center. But then the Pistons remembered they were the Pistons, and the Bulls ran away with a 92-68 victory, outscoring Detroit...

January 8th, 2012 at 8:52 AM
***PHOTO1*** Chicago Bulls power forward Carlos Boozer has been a part of the last two United States Olympic basketball teams, winning a bronze medal in 2004 and a gold in 2008. But according to Marc Stein of ESPN, it appears that Boozer is already out of the running for a...

Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah and Keith Bogans to Participate in Michael Beasley’s All-Star Classic
October 14th, 2011 at 11:18 AM
Chicago Bulls players have been conspicuously absent from many of these exhibitions with other NBA players. Some guys have played in a few random events, but they have avoided the high profile matchups featuring multiple NBA stars. That's about to change. ***PHOTO1*** Joakim Noah and Keith Bogans are scheduled to play in Timberwolves...
