These days, you might easily find yourself nodding your head before cheering on the Bulls at the United Center. The pregame groove is the handiwork of DJ Flipside. The Chicago native is actually the official music coordinator for the Bulls this season. RedEye chatted it up with him during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. "Official Music Coordinator" sounds like a pretty intense title. Yeah, This is the first year for this position so it's been fun so far. I actually work on the job with DJ Marquis and DJ Metro.

So that's it then. The plucky Bulls gave it all they had, but their season is over after a 75-69 loss to Washington at the United Center on Tuesday. The Wizards eliminated the Bulls four games to one in their first-round playoff series. Believe it or not, the Bulls' chances to win Game 5 hinged on the health of Mike Dunleavy's injured left thumb. Could he score anywhere close to 35 points again, like in Game 3? Or at least pass to someone who could?  OK, so maybe we're overstating that appendage's importance a tiny bit. But it makes for a good visual, so here's what earned a...

Kirk Hinrich may not like those protective glasses he has to wear on the court, but here at RedEye, we feel they could be the making of something great. Take a piece of protective wear here and another piece there from a Bulls teammate and you could create a Voltron-like creature of power! Were he to be set loose, he could rule the NBA with a plastic fist of fury. Or, ahem, something like that. . Take Hinrich's glasses and make them impervious to tear gas. . Add Rip Hamilton's face mask, in a UV-filtering material that deflects gamma rays.

Sunday marks the one-year anniversary that the Bulls franchise was set back at least a year with Derrick Rose's ACL tear in his left knee. Rose suffered through the lockout-shortened season with a string of injuries that ended with one of the more devastating things that can happen to an athlete. Bulls fans may remember what the day was like, April 28, 2012, in Chicago: Cold, damp with overcast skies. With the city feeling like the team was on a collision course in the Eastern Conference finals with Miami, nobody could've imagined how the weather that day would be symbolic for the Bulls.

The Bulls did it. They actually ended Miami's 27-game winning streak. Taking a page out of the Bears' book and using intense physical play, the Bulls downed the Heat on Wednesday at the United Center. How'd they pull this off, despite not having Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Rip Hamilton or Marco Belinelli? Here's how. 1. Channeling CM Punk Twice in the first half, Kirk Hinrich stepped in front of LeBron James on the fast break to prevent him from dunking highlight reel-style.

An electronic billboard along the Edens Expressway has been generating a lot of traffic during the Hawks and Bulls' playoff runs. Whether you've driven past them, or seen one of the thousands of shares on Facebook and Twitter, the four-person creative team at Command Transportation--a freight shipping broker based in Skokie--has never gotten this much attention for their creations. “It's absolutely unreal,” said Command Public Relations Director Dana Lenckus. “It's taken off more than any other signs have.” This week, in the midst of a surprising playoff win for...

"You can just see it," announcer Hubie Brown said during the Bulls' Game 4 loss Sunday to the 76ers. "It's like a nightmare unfolding. " That comment came after a missed shot by John Lucas III and another Sixers rebound, the Bulls trailing 66-63 early in the fourth. Made on a rainy, dreary day in Chicago, Brown's comment was a fitting eulogy for these 2012 Bulls. Hubie didn't mean it that way, but no matter. His words were truth: This postseason has not been a death sentence.

I'm tired of hearing about how the Bulls should bring Derrick Rose back slowly to protect his long-term potential and that this is a lost season. I get it, no one wants Rose to come back too early and potentially jeopardize what should be a Hall of Fame career with the Bulls. The problem is this team is near the top of the Central Division and with Rose in the lineup, they are legitimate title contenders. Playing for the future is good in theory, assuming everything stays the same.

"I get asked that every day, man," a seemingly exasperated Taj Gibson said when prodded to talk about how much Joakim Noah has meant to the Bulls this season. But Gibson's response wasn't one of annoyance. It was pointing out that no one should ever have to ask about Noah's value, because if you've watched this team play, it should be obvious. It's apparent to everyone else in the NBA, too. On Monday, the Bulls' ultra-animated center was named the NBA's defensive player of the year.

Well, I said I wasn't going to do it, swore to myself it was never going to happen, ignored them for the entire first half of the season, pretended they didn't exist, and then, while I wasn't paying attention, I accidentally fell in love with them. I'm speaking of the Chicago Bulls and darn it, they are freaking lovable. I have no idea how this happened. Seriously. Wait, I know. Some guys at work were like "Hey, have you watched these guys play? They're really good. You should watch them.

Well, Bulls fans, we've made it past the All-Star break. You know what that means: We're halfway through the second season without Derrick Rose and without much hope of the playoffs. Last week's confirmation that Rose won't be back on the court this season made us wonder just what the team has been up to while we were distracted with Olympics, hockey and Olympic hockey. Here's a look at the Bulls' season so far. The standings Overall record: 27-25. With Thursday's win over Brooklyn, the Bulls improved to two games over .500 for the first time since Nov....

Reading what Joakim Noah says about Luol Deng, you want to wrap your arm around the Bulls center and tell him it's gonna be OK. On Wednesday, the Bulls will face Deng for the first time since he was traded to Cleveland earlier this month. "I love Luol," Noah said. "He's my brother. But when that ball goes up, he's not going to be my brother. " OK, so Noah won't go easy on his former teammate on the court. But his friendship with Deng has earned a spot among the top Chicago sports bromances.

Jimmy Butler's hairdo had been an interesting discussion topic among fans. The Bulls guard started growing his hair out a year and half ago, and what began as a respectable high-top fade morphed into a style that was, well, hard to describe, but we know Sideshow Bob would've been proud. But for a guy who wears cowboy boots almost every day, his hairstyle was reflective of someone who marches to the beat of his own drum. And it was only a matter of time before it reached cult status.

Nice all-star break for the Bulls. I need it, too. I need a break from the silliness that is the NBA. If I were an NBA coach and someone asked me what I did for a living, I'd just say, "I work with children. " The latest: Jay Williams, throwing allegations around that the Bulls smoked pot during the 2002-03 season. OK, look at that team, he's probably right. Eddy Curry, Tyson Chandler, Donyell Marshall, Jamal Crawford, Jalen Rose. Coached by Bill Cartwright. My god, people may have needed a puff or two just looking at that lineup!

I watched in horror Tuesday as the Bulls won a playoff game. Don't get me wrong, I love the team and want them to win. They fight with the tenacity of a junkyard dog, ignoring injury and a lack of offensive talent. But the Bulls as currently constituted are so obviously sore and tired and broken down that it's almost sad to watch them win a playoff game. Every victory forces another game. Derrick Rose is the magic word when considering these Bulls. They have been gallant in his absence, but they top out at 90 points a night unless somebody has one of their two or three best...

And so it ends. No more basketball. No more games. No more 2013 Chicago Bulls. The season started with fans talking about who wasn't there. It ended with fans talking about who was. It started with hope for The Return. It ended with the return of hope. It started with us thinking we'd go as far as No. 1 took us. It ended with us knowing that the team is number one. For that, Chicago should have but one thing to say: thank you. Thank you, Joakim Noah for producing a masterful season from start to finish.
