Fred Hoiberg is already feeling the pressure in his second season — Gar Forman wore his summer tan well. The general manager was in good spirits during Monday's media day, looking very comfortable with his standing in the franchise. John Paxson? Same story for the Bulls' VP of basketball operations. Intense as usual, but no sign of stress caused by job security.

Dwyane Wade is 100 percent behind Colin Kaepernick's message — Dwyane Wade is all in on what NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been doing throughout the early part of the NFL season. The new Bulls star is all in on any message athletes can convey these days when it comes to anti-violence.

Dwyane Wade's honesty is welcomed with the start of Bulls camp — There's a certain refreshing honesty to Dwyane Wade these days. Maybe it comes with age or just maybe the veteran has learned that expectations are for others to dwell on. "There's no expectations right now,'' Wade said recently, when asked about what he expected from his new team going into this season.

Derrick Rose is gone but distractions aren't very far away — The juice was no longer worth the squeeze when it came to Derrick Rose. Whether it was eye-rolling statements to the media, his inability to stay out of the training room, dealing with the buffoonery of Camp Rose when it came to his future earnings, or the fact that privately there were more and more in the Bulls organization that felt the point guard believed the Rose brand was more important than the team logo, a break-up was all but unavoidable.

Woman speaks out about sexual assault case against Derrick Rose — A woman suing Derrick Rose of sexual assault said on Thursday that she doesn't know how the case against the NBA point guard would end, "But I want people out there to know they can speak out and not be afraid and not have to be in the suffering stage.'' Known as "Jane Doe'' in the court filings, the 30-year-old Los Angeles woman originally filed a lawsuit back in August 2015, accusing Rose and two other men of breaking into her apartment and raping her in 2013.

Jerry Reinsdorf Hall of Fame enshrinement remains Jordan-less — The shadow of Michael Jordan isn't fading anytime soon. Even on the eve before Bulls board chairman Jerry Reinsdorf was being enshrined as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, he was answering questions about his former all-world player turned Charlotte owner.

Dwyane Wade opens up about his cousin's death and Donald Trump

Madden franchise still hates Jay Cutler and the Bears — The player rating numbers have been leaked for weeks, but when Madden '17 hits the public on Tuesday, the continual disrespect for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler by the gaming franchise will be official. Cutler's overall ranking to start the season will be an 80.

No shortage of drama as NBA announces the regular-season schedule — Dwyane Wade isn't much into expectations. A new area code isn't about to change that. "There's no expectations right now,'' Wade said recently. "That's you guys' [the media] job to come up with what our record is going to be or what our shooting percentage is going to be.

Dwyane Wade says the Bulls offense will find a way to get it done — It will work. How? What it will exactly look like? The "three alphas'' couldn't say. But what Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo promised was that they would make it work. They have to make it work.

Relax Chicago, the Bulls will get as far as they were going to get with Rose. Still a team that can get to the ECF.

Just read Deadspin. Very well done. A blog site built on satire doesn't get satire. Maybe I can e-mail a QB penis picture into them now.

RT @willbrinson: Creating a parody account for @cst_cowley would be amusing. Unfortunately it would also be redundant.
