The Bulls are fucked, cant play a lick of defense to save their life and cant shoot the 3 either. Lavine Fleeced them on the contract.Meanwhile, Lauri Markannen dropping 38 as the main option in Utah making less than half what Zach makes. Something Chicago could have done.
Bulls have a good record against the best teams in the league (Milwaukee, Boston, etc), just lose to shit teams for whatever reason. Not sure why they decided not to show up tonight against Phoenix.jesus
I'll be completely transparent here. I haven't given a shit about basketball since the bulls/Jordan dynasty. But I started to dip my toe back in at the start of this season (and part of that was helped by fan duel ) and I realized I actually still like watching this sport. There's also a lot of other factors at play here since the Suns are looking FANTASTIC so far this year, and the Coyotes are absolute shit and I have no desire to watch them.
But this game is embarrassing. Last few suns games have been EXTREMELY close right down to the last few seconds. Not this game.
Zach COULD do that. But his head is too big. Booker used to be that way too. Then Chris Paul showed up and set him straight.He has REALLY ramped it up. Which is nice since we don't even have Chris Paul or Cam Johnson right now . But Booker, Lee, and Ayton......god dayum.
Trash with 5 turnovers and zero free throw attempts.This team is getting difficult to watch. There is zero effort. It's like they don't give a shit. Not crashing the boards, not closing out in D, not attacking the rim, not going after loose balls, etc. 13 offensive rebounds for New York in 3 quarters. That doesn't happen on talent or size. That's 100% effort.
They need to blow this mf up. Trade Demar, Zach, Vooch, PWill, Caruso, Lonzo (if that mf ever plays ball again). Everyone that has any value whatsoever. Stack picks. Tank. Hope to start to compete by 2025-2026.
They peaked at the beginning of last year. They won a bunch of games early but then They slid in to the playoffs when everybody got hurt. We are never going to see that team again that peaked. It takes a lot for me to hate a player and I can’t put all the blame on Lavine. IMHO Bulls need to trade the farm for a legit superstar or we will be back to mediocrity.
