Bryant 'scared' about post-basketball future

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant says he is “scared” about his future after basketball. Bryant, who turns 36 in August, is under contract with the Lakers for two more seasons. He played just six games last season. After he returned from an Achilles tendon tear, he sustained a season-ending knee injury. Bryant is the subject of a documentary that airs on Showtime in November. “Kobe Bryant's Muse” looks into his life last season when the Lakers went 27-55 as he recovered from the injuries.

Only time will tell if the new Bulls are an improved team

I wish the Bulls’ season could start right now — and not just because the Cubs and White Sox aren’t good. (But mostly because of that.) There are more unknowns than knowns when it comes to this team, more unsolved mysteries than closed cases. And it should be fascinating to watch. We don’t know whether Nikola Mirotic can play at a high NBA level, especially in his first season. We don’t know how many nips age has taken out of Pau Gasol’s heels. We...

Experience is a plus for newcomer Nikola Mirotic

Urban myth around the Berto Center is that Tom Thibodeau doesn’t like to play rookies. Maybe it’s more an assumption that seems to jibe with his demanding coaching style that requires that rookies catch on quick. Examine his history, though, and he has shown a willingness to play young players — namely Tony Snell and Omer Asik. That bodes well for Nikola Mirotic who will play with the Bulls after coming here from Real Madrid. The Bulls drafted him in the first...

Thibs: Taj Gibson's role won't change

CHICAGO -- Tom Thibodeau was non-committal Friday when the topic of his opening night starting lineup came up. He's still not sure how he will divvy up the minutes between a much deeper frontcourt comprised of Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic. But the veteran coach did acknowledge that no matter what happens, Gibson's role on the team will not change. "I don't think it changes at all," Thibodeau said. "As I've spoken with all three, they're all going to have significant roles.

GM: Bulls offered top-10 picks for Mirotic

CHICAGO -- Bulls GM Gar Forman admitted Friday that he was offered top-10 picks in last month's draft for the rights to European star Nikola Mirotic. "To be honest with you, we were offered a couple picks in the top 10 for his rights," Forman said on ESPN 1000's "Waddle and Silvy Show" on Friday. "So I think he's a pretty high-level player. He's got a chance to develop into one. He's 6-foot-10, he's got a motor. He can play inside and out and he can shoot the 3-ball, so that's a good skill set to have as a young player.
