Post Game Analysis for Bulls vs Heat
The Bulls and Miami Heat just went at it in Miami. The Bulls WON 105-89. Zach Lavine joined the ranks of the injured, sitting out the game with a mild ankle sprain. Not sure how long he will be out, but in this game, it wouldn’t make much difference. Jabari Parker didn’t even take his first shot attempt until the 4th quarter, playing limited minutes. Bobby Portis was on FIRE in the 4th quarter.

The 2019 Draft Couldn’t Come Fast Enough – Who do We Like?

Marcus: Ja Morant (PG) Murray State

Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans, but doesn’t want to be a Bull.
The big NBA news of this week (and in years) was that Anthony Davis has informed the New Orleans Pelicans that he won’t be signing an extension and has requested a trade.

Though Bulls fans would love the possibility of A.D. returning home to Chicago, it’s almost 100% unlikely to happen.

One sure sticking point with Davis and the Bulls is that the team currently stinks. His agent’s trade request explicitly mentioned a desire for ”a team that allows him a chance to win consistently and compete for a championship.”

So maybe chalk up the Bulls being out of the Davis sweepstakes as a matter of timing (you know management will). Any trade package required to get the superstar will leave even less on the team when he’s here. 

But why, then, are the New York Knicks considered a possible trade partner?

The Knicks, like the Bulls, are terrible. They too are a big market franchise chasing a top pick in the draft, and will have ample cap space in the offseason. This isn’t a matter of the Bulls being unable to meet the Pelicans’ trade demands, the Bulls do have that potential top-5 pick and young prospects like Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter, Jr. on the roster. But if Davis doesn’t want to stay beyond his contract expiring in the summer of 2020, that changes what the Bulls are willing to offer.

So if the Knicks, long considered a laughing stock of the league, are a team Davis would consider being dealt to yet the Bulls aren’t, how poorly does that reflect on this franchise’s ownership and management?

Upcoming Games and Predictions:

  • Saturday Feb 2nd – Bulls at Charlotte Hornets
  • Wednesday February 6th – Bulls vs New Orleans Pelicans
