July 18th, 2014 at 5:19 PM

Chicago Bulls 95, Los Angeles Lakers 83: Game Grades
January 22nd, 2013 at 8:20 AM
The game between the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers was the definition of "something has got to give." Coming into this game Chicago boasted one of the league's best defenses but also dwelled in the slums as one of the league's worst offenses. The Lakers came in as the exact opposite...

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...

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...

Report: Chicago Bulls Expected to Waive C.J. Watson
June 6th, 2012 at 11:02 PM
***PHOTO1*** I'm going to take this with a grain of salt, but here goes. Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Chicago Bulls will not bring back C.J. Watson next season. The Bulls have until July 10 before Watson's $3.2 million salary (there's been some confusion on this...

Chicago Bulls with Decisions to Make on Key Members of ‘Bench Mob’
June 4th, 2012 at 10:27 AM
Over the past two seasons, the Chicago Bulls have prided themselves on their "Bench Mob." The Bulls have been one of the deeper teams in the NBA, and on plenty of occasions, we have seen the bench take over games with dominant defense and occasional flashes of offense.  But with Derrick...

Report: Chicago Bulls to Pursue Steve Nash and Jason Kidd This Offseason
June 4th, 2012 at 12:07 AM
***PHOTO1*** With Derrick Rose out until God knows when and C.J. Watson's future also in doubt, the Chicago Bulls may be in need for some point guard help for next season. And buried in a report full of cheery Rose progress updates and sad "Bench Mob" news, CSN Chicago's Aggrey...

Chicago Bulls Offseason: Where Do They Go from Here?
May 18th, 2012 at 9:44 AM
All right. I won't spend much time recapping this depressing Chicago Bulls season, because we'll be doing that more substantially over the coming weeks prior to the NBA Draft in June. Regular season was great, playoffs stunk, yada yada yada. Let's just get to the plan for the offseason.  ***PHOTO1*** Let's start...

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...

Walkin’ on the Suns: Chicago Bulls 118 – Phoenix Suns 97
January 17th, 2012 at 11:30 PM
The Chicago Bulls were a disaster without Derrick Rose on Monday in Memphis. Rose would sit out again Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns, but the outcome would be much, much different. The Rose-less Bulls (13-3) racked up a season-high 118 points in a 118-97 laugher over the Suns (4-9)...

Chicago Bulls Shooting Guard Candidate: Jason Richardson
December 6th, 2011 at 8:57 PM
You probably remember Jason Richardson from his high flying days with the Golden State Warriors, when he and Baron Davis formed arguably one of the better all-around backcourts in the league. Or maybe you remember him for forgetting to box out Ron Artest in the 2010 Western Conference Finals as...

Chicago Bulls Shooting Guard Candidate: Vince Carter
December 5th, 2011 at 1:37 PM
ESPN reported Sunday afternoon that the Phoenix Suns will waive veteran shooting guard Vince Carter when free agency opens Dec. 9. Considering the 34-year-old was set to make a laughable $18 million this season, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that this is an easy choice for...

November 21st, 2011 at 8:50 PM
***PHOTO1*** NBA players consolidated their two antitrust lawsuits Monday, choosing to dismiss the complaint in California and combine it with their existing one in Minnesota.

July 28th, 2011 at 10:24 AM
***PHOTO1*** In 2009, Neil Paine of Basketball-Reference.com developed a way to track how players did against the best and worst defenses in the NBA. He first rates each team defensively using a special formula created by BBR. He then looks at which players performed the best on offense (according to bopOSPM aka Offensive Basketball-on-Paper...
