Derrick Rose

Last Resort

Posted by Decker on 7th July 2010

The Chicago Bulls have officially missed out on Amare Stoudemire, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. And, it looks like LeBron James will be added to that list on Thursday night. Now, they need to make a move. It looks like Carlos Boozer will be the next one to target. The Bulls would potentially add him to a lineup that includes Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Luol Deng. But even if they get Boozer, Chicago fans will feel left out. But that’s the way it works.

Bulls Need Johnson

Posted by Decker on 3rd June 2010

In a big sports city like Chicago, good performances are expected. For a team that has been exiting first round lately, it is time for the Bulls to step up. Derrick Rose is an excellent player, but he clearly needs help. With the 2010 free agency coming, the Bulls need to target one man: Joe Johnson. Sure, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and Amare Stoudemire are all better plays. But the odds of any of them coming to Chicago are very slim. Joe Johnson is in his prime, and is 28 years of age. By the time a long-term contract would end, yes, he will probably be a little out of his prime. But someone with his shooting ability will be a valuable asset until his career ends.

Joe Johnson is likely frustrated with the under whelming playoff performances that Atlanta put on. And just like everyone else, Johnson will be eager to see what is out there for him. If the Bulls reach out to Johnson immediately, he will likely be very receptive. A backcourt of Rose and Johnson would likely be the best in the entire league. It is up to Chicago to make it happen.

Bulls use balanced attack to stop Spurs

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th October 2009

Luol Deng scored 17 points and added nine rebounds as the Chicago Bulls used a balanced scoring attack to beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-85 in their season-opening game on Thursday.

Derrick Rose finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Bulls, who lost to the Boston Celtics in a hard-fought seven-game first round playoff series last year.

Tyrus Thomas also scored 13 points, while Kirk Hinrich added 14 points off the bench. Joakim Noah had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls.

Tim Duncan scored a game-high 28 points and 16 rebounds for the Spurs who had only one other player in double figures. Manu Ginobili scored 12 points and had six rebounds for San Antonio, who opened the season Wednesday with a victory over New Orleans.

Bulls injury updates: Rose, Thomas still day-to-day

Posted by GameSetMatch on 13th October 2009

Because the injuries to Derrick Rose and Tyrus Thomas have lingered longer than initially expected, everyone — reporters, coaches and players — is finding new ways to ask and answer the same questions on a daily basis.



After Monday’s practice at the Berto Center, coach Vinny Del Negro was asked if Thomas ”did anything today.”

”He didn’t practice,” Del Negro said. ”He had breakfast and did a few other things.”

Rim shot, please.

Both players were injured in the Bulls’ first preseason game on Oct. 2 and were listed as day-to-day. Neither is expected to play tonight when the Bulls face the Milwaukee Bucks at the United Center.

With more than two weeks to go before the regular-season opener Oct.29 against the San Antonio Spurs at the United Center, there’s no sense of urgency to get both players back on the court just yet — but don’t try convincing Rose of that.
