The Chicago Bulls won’t have Loul Deng, Derrick Rose and possibly Kirk Hinrich in the lineup for Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal against the Miami Heat on Monday, but Rose said his status is ”still up in the air. I might have a chance.”
BEST OF MAXIM
Believe it or not, but Derrick Rose says that he hasn’t heard any of the public criticism he’s been taking for his slow recovery from the major knee injury he suffered around this time last year.
Rose was cleared to return to action months ago but has admitted that overcoming the mental obstacles that accompany such an injury, has been difficult.
The Chicago Bulls point guard...
There was a report from Hoops World that Derrick Rose “might” be in uniform by Game 3 of the Heat vs. Bulls series. Not his standard suit and tie uniform, but his real basketball uniform. The report didn’t say if Rose would actually play, but just that he might wear his uniform.
It was pretty vague, but Coach Thibodeau doesn’t want to get anyone hopes up.
The Chicago Bulls were without two starters for yesterday’s deciding Game 7, but they received an awesome performance from another ailing star to defeat the Brooklyn Nets and advance to the second round of the NBA Playoffs.Prior to Game 7, Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich were ruled out for the contest. Deng is recovering from a spinal tap and a severe case of viral flu, while Hinrich...
Just in case the Bulls need a little more motivation, they don’t really need to look further than this picture.

If anything epitomized the Brooklyn Nets' lackadaisical effort and the Chicago Bulls' determination to win Game 7 of their first-round playoff series, it was this nasty dunk by Joakim Noah.
No Luol Deng. No Kirk Hinrich. No Derrick Rose. No problem for the 6-foot-11 center as he traipsed through the Nets defense and slammed this third quarter basket as the depleted Bulls...
Joakim Noah is one of the NBA's best big men, but he also continue to get measurably better.
Noah was ruled out of the Chicago Bulls' first round series against the Nets due to plantar fasciitis, but he decided before their Game 1 shootaround that he would be healthy enough to play.
“Yeah and I hope he continues to improve until the last year he plays in the league,"...
Just one game into the Eastern Conference Semifinals with the Bulls leading 1-0, Chris Bosh is already tired of talking about his counterpart, Joakim Noah.
According to the Chicago Tribune:
If there was any doubt about the Bulls’ ability to get into the Heat’s heads after a surprising Game 1 triumph, Heat center Chris Bosh reinforced the idea Tuesday with his response to a simple...

GAME 7 GAME 7 GAME 7 GAME 7 GAME 7. I've been waiting for this game for much of my teenage years, a do-or-die playoff game in Brooklyn,...
Joakim Noah controlled this game down low, from start to finish, dominating Brook Lopez
In the biggest game of their entire season, the Brooklyn Nets crapped the bed. Although they were taking on an injury-depleted Chicago Bulls team with no real reason to think they could win a Game 7 on the road, the Nets started the game flatter than they would if they were playing...
It's always fun to see the Miami bandwagon fans melt down after a loss. It's so funny to see them complain about the officiating when they get the benefit of the calls 99.9% of the time. In a game where the opponent took just 4 free throws more than them, they are certain that the game was fixed. They are used to getting all the calls and when a crew calls is...
Nearly every NBA Playoffs brings an X factor. There is a moment, a play or a comment that holds the potential to either define or change the direction of circumstances. For some teams that factor can boost your chances or it can lead to your demise. For the Boston Celtics it was age. Their two best players are riding out their final seasons in the league and the Celtics will inevitably...
