Bulls 104, Knicks 80: The important stuff from Chicago's blowout season-opening victory

Featuring #FRAUDMELO, #TaylormeetsDoug and a check-in with our old buddy Carlos Boozer. The last time we saw the Chicago Bulls play a meaningful basketball game, Joakim Noah was limping up and down the court, D.J. Augustin was getting smothered by John Wall and Tom Thibodeau seemed about five minutes away from strangling Carlos Boozer. That's the context you need for why Wednesday's season opener felt so damn refreshing. The last two seasons of Chicago Bulls basketball weren't all bad, but it mostly felt like making a call and being placed on hold for an eternity. Without Derrick Rose, we...

Pau: 'Possible' Marc Gasol lands in N.Y.

Pau Gasol turned the Knicks down in free agency this summer. But he told reporters on Wednesday that it's "possible" his brother could end up in the Big Apple. Marc Gasol, Pau's younger brother, is expected to test free agency this summer. The Knicks are on track to have enough cap space to offer the Grizzlies center a maximum contract. Pau Gasol told reporters before the Knicks-Bulls game that he's talked to his brother about Knicks president Phil Jackson, whom Pau played for with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Derrick Rose is second to none at first glance

RICK TELANDER: All eyes were on Derrick. Yes, there was Spike Lee decked out like an orange tree. And the Blue Man Group hammered away during the intros. And the wristbands worn by the entire Madison Square Garden crowd flashed synchronized blue, white, and orange lights. But Rose was the color. The name. The fascination.

Analysts: Bears' problems are more than just Jay Cutler

Quarterback Jay Cutler’s inconsistency protecting the ball is a major reason why the Chicago Bears are a disappointing 3-5. But their list of problems is much longer than that, as Sunday’s 51-23 loss to the New England Patriots reminded us.

Thumb injury will keep Jimmy Butler out longer than expected

NEW YORK ­­­— It would seem that coach Tom Thibodeau should have a breaking point when it comes to entering a regular season short-handed. But Thibodeau seemingly remained immune to feeling sorry for himself — or at least continued to portray that philosophy on Wednesday, when guard Jimmy Butler (sprained ligaments in his left thumb) missed the opener against the Knicks. “Injuries just didn’t start happening last week,’’ Thibodeau said. “They’ve...

Bulls 104, Knicks 80: Bench dominates

NEW YORK -- Taj Gibson and the new Bench Mob changed the pace of the Chicago Bulls' season-opening 104-80 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday. With the Bulls struggling to find a rhythm, Gibson and veteran guard Aaron Brooks checked in and found a way to get to the rim and get a consistent offense going. Pau Gasol made a nice first impression with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but Gibson led the way for a second unit that is hungry to prove itself.

Derrick Rose meets Melo, the player he didn’t want

Derrick Rose has said all the right things since Carmelo Anthony opted to return to the New York Knicks rather than sign with the Bulls as a free agent during the summer.

Rose not worried about doubters ... or Melo

NEW YORK -- Derrick Rose wants to prove all of his doubters wrong, but he's trying not to let all the doubts about his game get into his head. As Rose gets set to open a new season against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night (ESPN, 8 ET), the former MVP sounds excited about being back on the floor after playing in just 10 games over the past two seasons because of two serious knee injuries. "I can't get caught up in that," he said of the doubters.

Jimmy Butler out for Bulls’ opener

“Next man up,’’ has come out of the mouth of Tom Thibodeau way too many times the past few years. Whether if it’s been injuries to Derrick Rose, Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng or Joakim Noah, the Bulls coach has been very consistent with that mentality.

Story of Bulls’ season: Can Derrick Rose do this?

RICK TELANDER: Whatever the Knicks might become this year as Phil brings the triangle offense out of the dustbin, this game is about the Bulls. Who are they? How will the new guys play together? How will coach Tom Thibodeau handle them? And, above all — like a question from the spirit mind of Dr. Naismith himself — how will Derrick Rose be?
