When Michael Jordan had a message to deliver to the world, he used what was, at the time, the best and fastest medium at his disposal: a fax machine. Twenty-five years ago, Jordan sent out, perhaps, the most famous fax of all-time, a two-word statement that would become iconic for its simplicity. All at once, the message served as a declaration to the basketball world and helped lift Jordan's ...

At about 9 a.m. on Oct. 6, 1993, a black Mercedes slowly pulled into the Bulls training facility. More than a half-dozen men wearing White Sox jackets jogged alongside to form a rim of protection worthy of a pope or president. Turned out the driver was an even bigger attraction - Michael Jordan. And his retirement news conference would be even more memorable than the human motorcade. "It was a ...

The rescue mission described at the start of Episode 4 of "The Last Dance" - an emergency assignment for Michael Jordan to go save Dennis Rodman from the clutches of Carmen Electra, abruptly ending the unpredictable forward's overextended vacation - happened in the Chicago suburbs, for what it's worth, and not Las Vegas. Jason Hehir, the director of "The Last Dance," confirmed as much to the ...

Fred Hoiberg is sitting in the lobby restaurant of the hotel that is serving as his temporary home. Game 1 of the NBA Finals is playing on a large, wall-mounted TV eight feet away, but Hoiberg is only half-watching.

"Maybe next time, my dad will get my other brother to come here," Joey cracked before catching himself. "Actually, hopefully this is our last time here." Joey, the ...

Lauri Markkanen is back. Now what? There will be offensive sets with the versatile forward in the post. Plays will be designed to free him for 3-pointers. He will bring the ball up to initiate offense at times and be involved in plenty of screen-and-roll situations with Zach LaVine at others. These all are good things for the Bulls.

CHICAGO - As a kid, Jabari Parker sometimes got his clothes from the thrift store. The second-hand threads never bothered him. "I found value in my clothes because I wasn't seeing them elsewhere and some of them started becoming collectible items," said Parker, sitting inside the sparkling Bulls locker room at the United Center. "Not everybody saw that, but I did. So it hit me: If you have ...

Time will tell whether public address announcer Tommy Edwards will belt out "From Duke ... " or "From Chicago ... " when introducing Jabari Parker as that starter. And that seems fitting for the Bulls' latest attempt at asset ...
