Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Brooklyn Nets
The Chicago Bulls LOST to the Brooklyn Nets – 96 to 93. With over 25 lead changes, this was a back and forth game with a lot of heart shown by Kris Dunn and the insurgence of Shaq Harrison, who showed a ton of hustle. Wendell Carter Jr displayed a preview of his future role as a star with several blocks and monstrous dunks. At about 2 minutes left in the 4th, we could see Bobby Portis limping into the locker room. Hopefully for Bobby’s sake, this is just a turned ankle and not anything to do with his previously injured knee. The game ended with a controversial call on Kris Dunn combined with some sloppy ball handling leading to a turnover that helped the Nets pull out the win, sealed by 2 free throws from former Bull Spencer Dinwiddie.
Bulls Injury Updates:
As we alluded to before, Zach Lavine will be out for another 2-4 weeks after he sprained his ankle vs Orlando while the Bulls were in Mexico City. With Zach Lavine out of the lineup, it’s up to the rest of the guys to step up and take charge. Luckily no one else on the club is hurt, with the exception of Denzel Valentine, who is recovering from his own ankle injury and surgery.

STATE OF THE BULLS
It’s been a few weeks since we were able to get together to do a show, and what a few weeks it’s been! Fred Hoiberg is out and Asst. Coach Jim Boylen has assumed the reins of head coaching duty.
We all know about the drama that ensued since Boylen has assumed control and it showed a lot about this Bulls team and just how SOFT they really are. I know they are professionals, but trying to boycott practice and declare a mutiny is not a good showing in a city like Chicago that is filled with HARD WORKING people that are known for their perseverance and toughness. This is the kind of stunt that we’ve never seen in Chicago at this scale and it’s time to take a long hard look at this roster to see what we can do to get some winners to play for the Bulls. If you’re going to have the worst team in the league, don’t complain about how hard you work. Don’t proclaim how entitled you are as a player when you can’t even win but 25% of your games. I get that some guys were injured, but that’s absolutely no excuse for how the players are acting.
While it’s probably true that Fred Hoiberg was a “soft” coach, that’s not the kind of team we want or deserve as Chicago Bulls Fans. I would not mind if we kept Lauri, Dunn and Wendell Carter Jr and simply flushed the rest down the drain. This franchise needs a full change, from top to bottom.
Marcus: Bulls Trade Jabari Parker and Cristiano Felicio to Washington Wizards for Otto Porter Jr. and Dwight Howard. http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y8f82odr
Wyse: Bulls get Rajon Rondo, Brandon Ingram and Michael Beasley from Los Angeles, Lakers get John Wall and Satoransky from the Wizards and Washington gets Jabari Parker and Lonzo Ball.
Thanks for listening everyone, Go Bulls!
