October 6th, 2014 at 10:05 PM
If Bulls fans wanted to see Derrick Rose look like his old self at the United Center for the team’s preseason opener Monday night, then they didn’t leave disappointed. In a rather chippy, exuberant game as far as preseason standards go – the Bulls and Rose ended up losing the...

Joakim Noah Recovers from Offseason Knee Surgery
October 4th, 2014 at 1:49 PM
In Chicago, knee surgeries are like quarterbacks in Cleveland: when a new one pops up, you can’t help but think about the scarred memories associated with the last one. Bulls All-NBA center Joakim Noah underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to remove cartilage from a troublesome right knee in May, which left...

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.

Washington Wizards 86, Chicago Bulls 73: Capital Punishment
January 27th, 2013 at 3:04 PM
It's official. It took me three months, but I finally figured out this team. ***PHOTO1*** On Friday, facing a quality team at home, where they've struggled, it made sense for the Chicago Bulls to roll over and get blown out, or perhaps to fight it out in a close game. What did...

Chicago Bulls (26-16) at Washington Wizards (10-31) Preview
January 26th, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Chicago Bulls 87, Washington Wizards 77: Game Grades
December 30th, 2012 at 3:28 PM
The Chicago Bulls took on the Washington Wizards in the nation's capitol last night in what we here at Bulls 101 correctly predicted to be an un-watchable game. From the opening tip, both teams struggled with their shooting and continued their struggles until the end of the game. Almost all...

Chicago Bulls 87, Washington Wizards 77: Nothing Magic About It
December 30th, 2012 at 7:00 AM
Here's the thing about the Chicago Bulls this year: They're not that good. They're a ridiculous defensive team. Nobody denies this. But they can't score to save their lives if the jumpers aren't falling, and they tend not to fall much. The defense will keep them in most games, but without...

Washington Wizards (4-23) at Chicago Bulls (15-12) Preview: Rip Them a New One
December 29th, 2012 at 2:23 PM
While Christmas wasn't exactly jolly for the Chicago Bulls and their fans, everyone got a late present the next evening when the Chicago Bulls' divisional game against the Indiana Pacers was delayed due to a snowstorm. Aside from a win, or a loss that was at least less embarrassing, nothing could...

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...

A History of Professional Basketball in Chicago, Part 2: Basketball Before the Bulls
September 2nd, 2012 at 12:30 PM
Towards the end of my senior year of high school, my English teacher informed us that we would be doing a final research paper for him. A senior thesis, of sorts. I seized upon the opportunity to write about the Bulls, and this was the result. Now, because my bosses...

Chicago Bulls Bullets: Free Agency Rumor Round Up
July 2nd, 2012 at 11:06 PM
So after 30+ hours of not having any power, I'm finally back in business. Considering this is currently one of the craziest times in the NBA, it was certainly not the most ideal time to lose power. Sure I was able to get brief updates on my phone, but that...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Fight to the Finish
April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 AM
With the conclusion of this past week of NBA hoops, we have reached the final week of the season that almost never happened. It was just about four months ago that the Chicago Bulls started a 66-game regular season journey that has certainly tested their mettle, although I doubt many...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Magic Number Down to One
April 21st, 2012 at 10:40 PM
After the Chicago Bulls' rough loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night, there was legitimate concern that the one seed in the Eastern Conference would be wrestled from Chicago's grasp. The Bulls still had two tough matchups left on the schedule, while it would not have been out of...

Chicago Bulls Likely to Face Charlotte Bobcats Without Derrick Rose and Luol Deng
April 18th, 2012 at 1:25 PM
***PHOTO1*** I could present a bunch of stats showing just how terrible the Charlotte Bobcats are, but that would be a giant waste of time. So instead, here's one that does a perfect job showing how pathetic this team really is: The Bobcats are getting outscored by 13.3 points per...

Short-Handed Chicago Bulls Fall Flat in Disappointing Loss to Washington Wizards
April 16th, 2012 at 11:03 PM
The Chicago Bulls were without Derrick Rose. The Bulls were without Luol Deng. Even so, there was no way they could lose to the wretched Washington Wizards, right? The same Wizards who had not beaten a team over .500 on the road all season?  ***PHOTO1*** Well, somehow the Bulls did just that,...

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...
