Thanks for the Love!!!
For those seeking more depressing news, paid $3.49/gallon to fill up rental car in Miami, then $3.98 to fill my own car in the ILL.
Kirk Hinrich left the Berto today in a truck big enough to drive over the top of cars.
I'm getting better each day. Thank you.
I want to thank the fans for the great support this year, but more importantly I really appreciate all the concern + support about my health
Bulls will work out 12 prospects Monday: Rice, Crane, Carmichael, Hill, Smell, Hardaway, Howell, Mitchell, Green, Leslie, Ledo, Jerrett.
Thibodeau said he'd like to see the Bulls add more shooting this offseason. (Kyle Korver?)
Wrapped it up by saying D-Rose is game-time decision for preseason opener in October.
Thibs said he doesn't see why Jimmy Butler wouldn't be starter next season, not exactly a revelation.
Thibs basically endorsed everyone coming back next season, but no one asked him about Vlad.
Thibs: "I don't see why not," when asked if Jimmy earned a starting spot for next season.
Bulls convening for final team meeting. Be classic if Thibodeau breaks out a film session.
15 NBA seasons in the books. Time flys!! Feel great & I have a lot more left in the tank. Can't wait to start training for next year
Call up scud Webb
Beautiful day in Chicago….no prep for the "next" game….not a good feeling.
Uno speciale ringraziamento a tutti gli italiani che sono stati svegli per tifare i Bulls per tutti i playoff! GRAZIE!!
Calling it a night/morning…on behalf of all of us connected with the Bulls we thank you for your passion, loyalty, dedication and spirit.
Wheels down in Chicago. Go Bulls!
Noah: "We’re going to come back healthy and we’re going to be able to compete with these guys for a long time. One day we’ll get our shot."
More Nate: “Knowing the guys that we have here, I know there’s probably limited space for me, but we’ll see how it goes."
Nate Robinson: “I love this team. I love these guys and if I could stay here, it would be wonderful."
Thibs: “We’re optimistic. ... We can’t hope for it. We have to make it happen. You do that with your work.”
Farewell quotes, Boozer: "This is 3 years together, we haven’t been healthy in the playoffs 1 year. If we are next year, it would be scary.”

Nate Robinson said he would like to return but admitted that it may be tough given the Bulls' cap situation and fact Nate will likely get $$
A sad but proud Bulls locker room after Game 5. They were disappointed by the outcome but happy with what they had accomplished this year.
Wheels up in Miami headed to Sweet Home Chicago. Thank you Bulls fans. Thank you
No clue on 13-14 schedule but if NBA is smart they ll schedule Bulls -Heat Christmas Day. Wow
Richard Hamilton: "I haven’t talked to them about (my future). Who knows what direction they’re going in?" One likely without Rip and Nate.
I wanna thank all the bulls fans for welcoming me like y'all did ... That's for giving me a chance to prove myself once again I love y'all
...what the adversity was, we kept fighting. Thanks to the fans for ur support all year. Sorry we couldn't pull it off but we left it on...
...I have so much respect for my teammates and their fight. Didn't know what to expect when I got here but it was well worth it. No matter..
Tough loss to the Heat but I always give my opponent their due when they beat u in a series. We were close but couldn't get over the hump...
Family style. http://t.co/MqxDyNSZTZ
End of the season. Getting off the treadmill is difficult. Inactivity for 6 months not my thing so what should I do? Any suggestions ?
Thibodeau on DRose: "It’s too important a decision for him to rush. Until he's completely comfortable, we don’t want him out there."
I want to thank all of our employees at the United Center for their attention to detail and professionalism. No matter the job you are great
Folks....Thank you so much for listening all season...your support is greatly, greatly appreciated
LeBron was 5-for-14 FGs, 12-for-15 FTs for 23 pts, 8 asts, 7 rebs. Butler held his own with 19-4-5.
Boozer finished with 26 & 14 tonight. Nate 21, Butler 19, Rip 15. Not much scoring from Noah, 3 pts, 9 rebs.
Bulls finish season with Game 5 loss to Heat as they started it, a bit short on talent but not on effort and determination.
Tremendous effort by the Bulls
Now there's a little love. Cole, Battier and Ray Allen greeted some Bulls.
Heat advance 94-91 final...Bulls left it on the floor...
Pretty good effort by Bulls, but Heat pulls it out 94-91. Not much team interaction. Caoches are hugging each other.
Jimmy Butler misses a three right before the buzzer. Heat win it 94-91. The Bulls' season is over.
Not a shooting foul
With 45 secs left, Bulls have time to try to get a defensive stop.
That defintiely went off Boozer, can't review if it was a foul.
Wade has come up big in the 4th for the Heat..no question best player for Heat at crunch time
If they thought Nate vs. LeBron might be flagrant, what was that Wade-Nate collision on the last possession?
Nate is heated and for good reason...no call on that collision with Wade
Miami 93-88 207 left 4th
This 4th quarter is a microcosm of what the Bulls have missed all year -- the presence of a closer late in the game.
Heat up 5 James 13FTA
Don't know why Jo crowded LeBron at 3-pt line. That's just asking him to go to hoop, which they don't want.
Cole and Wade have hurt Bulls in 4th Miami up 5
Joakim Noah has played a lot of huge games for the Bulls -- tonight is not one of them. He hasn't been much of a factor at all.
It's about time the Bulls fed Boozer. Ignoring him most of 4th.
Robinson has taken 2 shots in second half (both misses) with 2 FTs. He's played the whole way.
Norris Cole wins Nate Robinson holy crap award for that lefty dunk over Noah even if he took four steps. Good dunk, though: 84-83 Miami
Cole with a left handed dunk right through the lane. Heat 84-83 550 left 4th
Lot of dancing with the ball, as Thibs likes to say. Bulls got away with it on last possession.
"Hello NBA teams, I can still play next season. Give me a job" -- Rip Hamilton
Heat regain the lead on Cole J.
This is the Heat's first lead since Butler's 3-pointer with 4:49 left in second quarter.
Common foul, they got it right. Nate's not going to do that much damage.
common not flagrant for nate
Video review overturns Nate Robinson flagrant-one foul on LeBron James. Personal foul.
Crowd reacts angrily to butterfly crashing hard into rhino, errr Robinson fouling LeBron on break.
Wade clearly got away with a foul on Noah....Nate called for a flagrant on James 81-80 Bulls 659 left 4th
Can't imagine them calling this a flagrant on Nate after review. LeBron jerked his head to make it look worse. I've been wrong before.
Flagrant was the call on the floor.
Nate hasn't shot it in a while. Don't know if the Bulls can win a 4thQ without him.
