Rose learning from Kobe, Tyrus imitating Magic

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Derrick Rose “soaked up as much of the Kobe Karma as possible” when he and Bryant shot a video game commercial together earlier this month: “When you’re around people like that, of course you can learn a lot. How they manage themselves, how they eat, how they treat […]

Meet Luol Deng this Saturday

The catch? You’ll have to travel to Oak Lawn, IL. Oh, and you’ll only have a half hour to get his autograph. But it is for charity. From the Southtown Star: “Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng will sign autographs and accept a donation on behalf of his charity this Saturday at the grand opening of […]

Fresh ink: Johnson and Gibson

Jim O’Donnell of the Chicago Sun-Times: “Chicago, meet your James Johnson. His pedigree is more sociologically exotic than street. He appears more mobile than menacing. It is his feet of fury rather than his fists that interest the Rose-rage Bulls and their re-energized fandom now. Johnson — the team’s top draft pick — met the […]

Kurt Helin of NBC Los Angeles: “Remember back around the All Star break, when Bulls were an unmitigated disaster? Rose looked like a rookie — a promising rookie, but one who turned the ball over and was still learning to play in the clutch. The team gave away fourth quarter leads like Jim Cramer gives […]

Fresh ink: Jordan in the Hall

The greatest player of all time being selected for induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame — along with David Robinson, John Stockton and coaches Jerry Sloan and C.

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “The Bulls returned home from an 0-2 road trip needing a refresher course at finishing school. Sunday at Toronto, the Raptors shot 55.6 percent in overtime and went to the free-throw line four times to none for the Bulls. The Raptors made all four and won 134-129. Tuesday at […]

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “A week ago, simply eking into the playoff picture was a worthy goal. But with the 99-91 victory Tuesday over the Detroit Pistons in a nationally televised game, the Bulls are only one game behind seventh-place Detroit and four games behind sixth-place Philadelphia. Kirk Hinrich led the Bulls as […]

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “Derrick Rose saved his best for last Tuesday. The Bulls rookie star guard was without a field goal through three quarters. But Rose turned it on in the fourth to help lead the Bulls to a 127-121 win, which extended the Bulls home streak to seven games. Rose, who […]

Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald: “After playing the 58-minute game with just seven players — thanks to injuries to Luol Deng (right-shin contusion) and Tim Thomas (left-knee sprain), while Kirk Hinrich (bruised right knee) was not 100 percent — the Bulls canceled Tuesday’s practice. They face a tough bounce-back game Wednesday night against Orlando. […]

(Mostly) Fresh ink: March 9, 2009

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune: “Monday is an important day for the Bulls, for reasons that have nothing to do with their playoff-push matchup against the Miami Heat. Sources said Luol Deng will consult with an orthopedic surgeon in Miami who has extensive experience in treating tibial stress fractures to detail the fifth-year forward’s […]
