CHICAGO | The Miami Heat is not some 13-headed monster from outer space devouring everything in its path.
Quit dumping your vitriol on Derrick Rose, OK?
CHICAGO | Nate Robinson isn't human.
CHICAGO | How important is point guard Deron Williams to the Brooklyn Nets? Try five years at $98 million.
NEW YORK | Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau watches tape of the Nets and sees a confident team with an offense in rhythm.
CHICAGO | Cover your children's ears. Don't touch the Derrick Rose poster in their bedroom, though purple bunting taped across it might be appropriate.
CHICAGO | This was like hosting the Academy Awards and losing your tux before the curtain went up.
CHICAGO | Maybe the Orlando Magic won't be comedy club material this season.
As an athlete, you learn the golden rule of sports. Be prepared. E'Twaun Moore was prepared as an Indiana All-Star at E.C. Central, as a college all-American at Purdue, and as a second-round NBA draft pick.
To hear coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Gar Forman talk about the Bulls this season is like a matchmaker saying your blind date has a nice personality or good teeth.
Derrick Rose could never play for the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks or Miami Heat.
CHICAGO | Make yourself at home, Rip. It was fitting that amid all the hype and expectations, Richard "Rip" Hamilton scored the Bulls' first basket Tuesday night in their exhibition finale against the Pacers.
CHICAGO | This one may hurt for years. An 18-3 run by Miami, aided by a Derrick Rose turnover and missed free throw late, gave the Heat an incredible 83-80 comeback win Thursday night to clinch the Eastern Conference Finals in five games.
CHICAGO | The Bulls' challenging series with Atlanta has been like an airport security check, with Chicago players being scanned and scrutinized.
CHICAGO | Attitude is a wonderful thing to have in the competitive arena and at the moment, the Atlanta Hawks are swimming in attitude.
CHICAGO | Relax, Chicago.
CHICAGO | In the NBA, letting one player beat you is inexcusable. Even if his name is Derrick Rose. Yet, all the talk leading up to Monday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Playoffs centered around the 6-foot-3 guard who seems to solidify the MVP award with his every outing.
CHICAGO | This is why you gotta love Tom Thibodeau. He's never satisfied.
CHICAGO | Derrick Rose realizes there are bigger goals out there for the Bulls, so getting in position to grab the Eastern Conference lead from Boston isn't an end in itself.
This off-the-charts NBA season has made it difficult to leave the couch on weekends when ABC, TNT and ESPN serve up a viewer feast.
