Game Recap: Bulls 93, Sixers 82

So all it took for the Bulls to break out of their slump was an historic performance by Joakim Noah. That and a visit to the United Center by a team struggling even more than the Bulls have been. In case you missed it, the Sixers aren’t known as “the Sixers” anymore. They’ve been rechristened […]

Game Recap: Cavaliers 101, Bulls 98

Is this what Jackson Browne was thinking when he wrote Running on Empty? Is this what Michael Ray Richardson meant when he infamously said: “The ship be sinking”? Because the Bulls are in a serious funk. There’s no denying it anymore. After going 12-4 in January — which no doubt helped in getting Joakim Noah […]

And now Taj Gibson is down

The Basketball Gods giveth…and they also taketh away. To wit: The good news of Derrick Rose dunking in warm-ups (click here for video) has been tempered by an injury to somebody else.

Game Recap: Thunder 102, Bulls 72

The Bulls were hopelessly — and some would also say haplessly — blown out by the Thunder in Oklahoma City last night. How bad was it?

In all seriousness, though, making a blockbuster trade for a star player isn’t all that easy and such moves […]
