North Korean leader Kim Jong Il died over the weekend and it’s possible the country’s heir apparent is a Bulls fan.
The NBA lockout has effectively whipped out more than a month and a half of the season, and Tuesday, the players experienced what it really feels like to be unemployed.
Joined by superstars such as Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony, player representatives from NBA teams are meeting to discuss the league’s proposal for a new labor deal.
Wednesday will be the league’s D-Day, according to commissioner David Stern.
Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant won three NBA championships together, but their relationship soured over time, ultimately leading to a death threat from O’Neal.
NBA Commissioner David Stern has already canceled two weeks of the season, prompting this outburst from a faux Kobe Bryant.
David Stern and Billy Hunter are still hard at work trying to save the NBA season but it appears that many of the league’s top stars are getting ready to hit the road for a two-week world tour that will consist of six games spanning across four continents.
Dear David Stern, Billy Hunter, various grim-faced lawyers, union representatives, hired-gun economists, and rank-and-file ballers: don’t take this season from Derrick Rose.
Turkish club Besiktas is in talks with Kobe Bryant’s representatives about the possibility of the Los Angeles Lakers’ star playing in Turkey during the NBA lockout.
The Lakers uncharacteristic early exit from the playoffs on Sunday was an unlikely end to Phil Jackson’s career. Regardless of whether Jackson appears courtside again, he is the greatest coach in American sports history. Period.

As impressive as Derrick Rose’s stats have been this season, his killer instinct and his ability to take games under his control are what has solidified him as the MVP front runner.
Derrick Rose had a rough weekend with the All-Star break. Saturday he lost the skills challenge, Sunday Rose and the East Conference lost. If that wasn’t enough, the Chicago star only scored 11 points throughout the game.
Let me be clear on one thing: I used to think it was pretty cool that the fans of the NBA were given the opportunity to vote for the players they would like to see start in the all-star game.
It’s easy to say “Let’s talk about something else. I’m sick and tired of talking about Jay Cutler.”
Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said earlier this week that he finds the criticism of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler unfair.
What makes an NBA basketball player a viable MVP candidate? This is one of the age-old questions that, quite simply, has no direct answer.
The University of Connecticut women’s basketball team just set a record of some kind for their level of their sport.
(WSCR) – The Bulls had a slow start, but dominated the Lakers on the court. It had been almost four years since the Bulls had beaten the Lakers and Derrick Rose’s 29 points lead that […]
