Rose and Butler are building blocks for the Chicago Bulls

The Bulls currently are struggling to stay afloat in the Eastern Conference and have shown no signs of improvement. They now hold a record of 27-23 and are in sixth place in the conference.

Chicago Bulls: How Bobby Portis can help

The Chicago Bulls have not played poorly lately, but they certainly have not played at a high level either. While they have won games against tough competition such as the Cleveland Cavaliers, they still have not been able to make a substantial run that would solidify them as a strong team. They have shown the ability to beat good teams, but they have not been able to do that with...

Pau Gasol calls out Bulls for selfish play

The Chicago Bulls got back on the right track with a win Wednesday night, but veteran leader Pau Gasol didn’t mince words in interviews before the game, citing a lack of team-first play as the reason they continue to struggle. Sitting fifth in the Eastern Conference at 27-21 and looking sluggish at best with a 16-13 record against teams in that bracket, Gasol hasn’t been a stranger...

The Frustration That is the Chicago Bulls

Brian Scalabrine details how Mark Jackson fired him, and it ain’t pretty

Brian Scalabrine is probably the People’s Hero of the NBA. He played with such determination and a joy even though he wasn’t nearly as talented as some of those he shared the floor with. He’ll also talk basketball tactics with you until the world ends. And he’s a ginger, even better. But after he was fired from his coaching job with the Warriors at the end of the 2013-14...

Derrick Rose takes a bow after draining clutch three-pointer

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose seems to be getting his confidence back, and that’s good news for the team. Rose hit a clutch three-pointer late in Monday night’s game against the Jazz with the score tied at 90-90. He then let the crowd at Vivint Smart Home Arena know by taking a bow.

Pau Gasol: Bulls struggle with concentration, toughness

The Chicago Bulls have been a fairly mediocre team this season — one that seems to go through some sort of regression every time it appears a corner is about to be turned. Pau Gasol attributes that to a lack of focus. After a tough loss to the Miami Heat Monday night, Gasol spoke about how the Bulls are stuck in a pattern that needs to change. “It’s definitely a pattern....
