Yesterday I joined Justin Hull on the Home Stretch to chat about the NBA. We talked about how Derrick Rose's return will impact the Chicago Bulls, why Paul George is responsible for Indiana's big turnaround, why Philly will leapfrog Boston in the standings and we even squeezed in some talk about Beyonce's performance during halftime of the Super Bowl.

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, currently not in the lineup as he continues to deal with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, ran afoul of the NBA’s apparently stringent dress code policies on Monday while seated on the bench during the team’s game against the Indiana Pacers.
Nattily attired — by most standards, as you can see above — in a nice grey sweater, a tasteful...
The fashion police should have come for Joakim Noah long ago. The unshaven, wild-haired center for the Chicago Bulls has never been the cleanest-cut person in the world, and it sometimes seems like his offensive skills stem largely from his defender’s unwillingness to touch him.
Noah finally pushed a bit too far on Monday. He was escorted off the bench in the second quarter of...
Going into the regular season, optimism was at a low point for the Chicago Bulls fan base.
But after a 29-18 start that has them in 1st place in the Central division and 3rd place in the Eastern Conference (just a couple games behind the Knicks and Heat), the outlook on the Bulls’ 2012-2013 season has quickly changed.
With former MVP Derrick Rose expected to return sometime soon...
From a Yahoo Ball Don't Lie article:
On Monday night, an NBA employee asked that injured Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah leave his team’s bench because his outfit was deemed unacceptable by the NBA.
Here's what Noah was wearing:
The NBA has a rule that states all inactive players must wear a sportcoat/jacket when sitting on the bench. Apparently that sweater was...
The Chicago Bulls had one of the best benches in the NBA over the last two years, but last off-season, for cap purposes, decided to remake the bench with cheaper options. This involved trading Kyle Korver, letting the Rockets sign Omer Asik and not picking up the team options on CJ Watson and Ronnie Brewer. The Bulls did not believe that they would be contenders, since they...
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard of an NBA player being in violation of the league’s dress code policy. The dress code came into existence during the 05-06 season right after the height of the “bling era” when 5 XL long t-shirts, throwback jerseys and baggy Red Monkey jeans plus ice were all the rage. Bulls big man Joakim Noah was out for his third straight game with...
The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors have engaged in trade discussions for a deal involving Carlos Boozer for Andrea Bargnani.
ESPN's Marc Stein broke the story, and he noted that other players with smaller contracts would have to be added to the deal to make it work. Standing in the way of a potential deal -- whether Toronto could afford to have Boozer and Gay on the team.
Chicago Bulls point guard, Nate Robinson, released Season 2, Episode 3 of his mini-series,”State Of Nate”, Thursday. “Windy City Debut” gives a behind-the-scenes look at Nate’s life as a Bull and is the first episode that was filmed in Chicago. Check it out:
Bulls center Joakim Noah is expected to return Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.
Noah hasn't played since January 30, missing three games with plantar fasciitis. He's averaging 38.6 minutes a game on the season. I'm a bit worried that Noah is a) coming back too soon and b) going to get run into the ground by Tom Thibodeau. Hopefully, Noah is healthy enough to return...
The injury news will get better soon for the Chicago Bulls. Right? It has to. Derrick Rose should return soon. Kirk Hinrich will be back. Joakim Noah's foot will heal. And Carlos Boozer's hamstring will get better. But last night all four players were out, and the Bulls fell to the Indiana Pacers.The loss dropped the Bulls into a tie with the Pacers for...
The Chicago Bulls' six-game road trip hasn't gone as well as they'd hoped, and ending it on a positive note won't come easy against a Utah Jazz team playing extremely well at home.
Utah seeks an 11th victory in its last 12 tries at EnergySolutions Arena while trying to send Chicago to a season worst-tying third straight defeat Friday night.
The Jazz (28-22) haven...
The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors have engaged in exploratory trade discussions on a potential deal centered around Carlos Boozer and Andrea Bargnani.
