Okay, I know this is random, but these are my bullets, and I can do what I want!
Here is Washington St. head coach Mike Leach discussing which Pac-12 mascot would win in a fight, and it’s hilarious.

FWIW: Benny the Bulls would destroy all of them through popcorn suffocation.
- BREAKING: Coby White plans to wear his hair up more often in the NBA. I know, this may not be the news we all want, but it’s the news we have to come to terms with. Honestly, even when up, his hair still bounces gloriously with every step, but it’s just not the same. If you want more hot scoops like that though, make sure to check out the Tribune’s latest article: 10 things we learned about Coby White.
- In all seriousness, there is some great stuff in there. White elaborates more on his admiration for Chris Paul’s game and talks about working with his new teammates (apparently Ryan Archidacono has taken White under his wing). White also doubles down on his respect for new head coach Jim Boylen. While he admits Boylen is practically a 180 switch from North Carolina coach Roy Williams, he appreciates him all the same. We already know White loved sitting down to review game film with Boylen during their first meeting, but he also emphasized how Boylen, simply, has made him feel appreciated. According to White, the top-10 draft pick had NBA visits where the head coach wasn’t even in attendance … that’s kind of bonkers.
- Zach LaVine spoke with Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic about a little thing called winning. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s okay, the Bulls haven’t either. Fortunately, LaVine’s trying to change that.
- Sometimes you have to ride the content train as far as it will take you. With the release of ESPN’s 30 for 30 on Dennis Rodman, the former NBA star is back in the limelight (although, let’s be honest, when hasn’t he been?). The most recent Bulls Talk podcast welcomes on the co-author of “Bad As I Wanna Be,” Tim Keown for a greater discussion on Rodman.
- If Robin Lopez is one of your top-10 best players of the decade, did you have a good decade? NBC Sports Chicago Mark Strotman does make a reasonable case for the big man, but Lopez at No. 8 tells you a lot about the Bulls past 10 years. Go check out the full list.
- Why does NBA 2k keep doing our boy Zach like this? I’m terrified.

- I’m also terrified of how ferociously LaVine dunks a basketball. I swear, with the All-Star game coming to Chicago, this man better be in the dunk contest again. A two-time reigning champ, LaVine needs to remind folks why he’s easily the best dunker in the NBA. Also, remember, Aaron Gordon wants a rematch … so we all know this would be historic.

- The Bulls sure do need wing depth, but I’m not sold on Iman Shumpert.
Veteran with playoff experience ✔️
Previously helped a rebuild ✔️
Solid wing defender ✔️
Free agent ✔️
Should the Bulls look at Iman Shumpert?https://t.co/D4WVL2NtFW

- Adding veteran talent to a young roster never hurts, but I’m more curious to see if Kris Dunn’s stock can increase when the season tips-off, thus turning him into a decent trade piece. Obviously, the interest for Dunn has severely lacked this offseason, but teams really start to reevaluate their needs once the season begins. If he’s looking good, the Bulls could turn Dunn into an equivalent or even more intriguing wing piece.
- The smile of a champion.
- I’ll answer my own question, yes it counts.
1. Jordan when he wore No. 45.
2. Jordan when he wore No. 12.
Does that count? https://t.co/zndlaIheYr
