Two years ago, the Bulls reached the Eastern Conference Finals. Derrick Rose’s major ACL injury prevented the Bulls from doing much in last year’s playoffs. For right now, Rose remains out until he suggests otherwise. This will be the Nets’ first shot at it with their new squad.
What Brooklyn needs to do to win: If the Nets win the rebounding battle, they should win this series. But that isn’t an easy task to accomplish against a feisty Chicago team. Reggie Evans averages over 17 rebounds per 40 minutes. That accounts for a ton of Brooklyn’s rebounds. To add to that, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson need to be effective on offense. Without Rose, the Bulls don’t have much talent to put up against these two guards. This series is an opportunity for Williams to make a statement. Look for D-Will to make a large impact on this series.
What Chicago needs to do to win: Although Chicago is short on talent, they are capable of winning this series. As usual, Joakim Noah will be all ove

The Chicago Bulls will once again be forced to fight for a solution in the post-season without their best player.

This is why fat guys are suing Derrick Rose for depression. I don’t think the majority of people have a real problem with Rose sitting out for the entire year. A lot of people think it is the smart way to go. I believe fans get annoyed though, when the Bulls release comments like this.
“He’s most likely out but you never know,” Thibodeau said. “The playoffs are stretched...
The Chicago Bulls got Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson back at the end of the season, but neither player is completely healthy entering the playoffs. For that reason, the Bulls will place both Noah and Gibson on minutes limits during their first-round matchup against the Brooklyn Nets.Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters -- including Chris Cason of CSN Chicago -- that the team is still...
Derrick Rose’s son PJ is adorable. Earlier this week, DRose’s girlfriend Mieka Reese hit up the Bulls game with one of Lil Wayne’s baby mama’s Sarah Vivan and of course, photos were placed on Instagram. Mieka is the one on the right in the photo of the two ladies standing.
In other DRose news, no word if he’ll be back for the playoffs yet but one irate fan is...
Richard Hamilton had a problem the other day that we would love to have. He posted to his Instagram account a picture showing him on a U-Haul with a ridiculous amount of sneakers. His caption read that his collection was getting too big and he needed to move them to another spot with two trucks. I seriously wish I had that issue.

Derrick Rose news?
I “DONNNNNNNNN’TTTTTT CARRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE” (credit Jay Cutler) when it comes to Derrick Rose return/rehabilitation coverage. I’ve been nauseated by the story for over a month already. Seriously, right now, I don’t want to even hear the name Derrick Rose until Bulls Media Day in October.
But then I stumbled across this not quite amusing but possibly...
Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls 1st Round Playoff Preview
The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls series is by far the most evenly matched in the 1st round of the East Playoffs, which is the way it should be in a 4-5 matchup. The Nets have the far better offense, while the Bulls are the better defensive team. However close this series is, it will all come down to these two things, the...
The Chicago Bulls put together a couple of rallies while taking three of four from the Brooklyn Nets during the regular season.
There was no chance for any comeback on Saturday. Not with the defense lacking and Joakim Noah limping.
The top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference the past two seasons, the Bulls failed to match the Nets' energy and trailed by as many as 28 points...
No more excuses. The time for Derrick Rose to stand up and come forward is right now.
That became self-evident Saturday night, when a Chicago Bulls team lacking its star player and worn weary by a season without him was utterly overwhelmed by the Brooklyn Nets, 106-89, in the opener of their seven-game series.
So much wrong with this Bulls team was on display. Head coach Tom Thibodeau...
