Joakim Noah accuses guys of dogging it

Joakim Noah accuses guys of dogging it
The cracks may be starting to show in the Bulls armor. Certainly the wins aren't coming. However, Joakim Noah through a salvo at the team for not playing hard and not playing winning basketball...

Marquis Teague to the D-League [though on hold] makes little sense

Marquis Teague to the D-League [though on hold] makes little sense
The Chicago Bulls gave up on Teague quickly, and under normal circumstances (like trying to compete to win the title) I would hardly blame them. Under these circumstances, Chicago has the perfect opportunity to develop Teague against real NBA talent...

Bulls aim to become undisputed preseason championships

It will likely have the fan fare of the BCS and a media vote, but clearly the only undefeated team wins the title right? I expect the Bulls will hand out preseason championship belts simultaneously while the Heat get their championship rings from last season, or maybe we'll save the honor for the first home game in New York...

The Bulls are underdogs, who knew?

I'm not sure how many GMs actually respond to the media survey, and how many teams simply have an intern do it. Nor am I too certain that those who respond do so with a whole lot of honesty...

Bulls focused on defensive improvement, but offense will decide their fate

When asked if the Bulls can keep improving, Derrick Rose replied in the affirmative, and you can tell who his coach is by the reply...

The Bulls might just be on the cusp of greatness, they'll need a few things for that to happen, but they aren't unreasonable things.

There's plenty of reason to hope this season, Derrick Rose carries himself with the attitude of a Michael Jordan who was just eliminated from the playoffs in 1995 with something to prove coming back. That said, there's just as much reason for fear, it's possible Rose may never come back from this injury and become the same caliber of player he was...

Bulls season is officially here, thoughts from media day

The Chicago Bulls kick off every season with media day. It's the day where they take all the photos, do the first interviews, and feed all of the nations reporters to inspire good will...

Derrick Rose is certainly confident

While the off-season is full of fluff pieces, every player is in the best shape of their life, has thrown up a million shots this summer, and has his team primed for significant improvement, it feels good to read a few about Derrick Rose...

Do minutes matter? How can the Bulls stay healthy this season

"if healthy" seems to be a phrase I use a lot when describing the Bulls chances. It's odd and not so odd at the same time. Odd, because the phrase really describes any team. What are the Heat's championship odds if one of their key pieces tears an ACL this year? Not so good, but I never think to add the phrase "if healthy" for them...
