Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “Forward Tyrus Thomas, whose name has been a staple in any Stoudemire trade rumors, instructed the media to ask the ”people upstairs” about whether he was headed to Phoenix. ‘I can’t talk about something I can’t control,’ Thomas said. General manager John Paxson wasn’t around to clarify trade talks […]

Okay, now it’s Bosh to Chicago…

The latest in completely unsubstantiated trade rumors involving the Bulls has Chris Bosh coming to Chicago in a three-team deal.

For the Bulls and their fans, Larry Hughes is that rash. He’s already dropped rock-like out of Vinny Del Negro’s rotation, and, frankly, […]

Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald: “The prognosis did not look promising for the Bulls pulling off their first three-game winning streak since April 2007. But the Bulls did make a stand, erasing a 9-point fourth-quarter deficit to take the lead with just over three minutes remaining. But some vintage Spurs defense turned things around […]
