The Chicago Bulls are 11.5 point underdogs to the Milwaukee Bucks tonight, but little do these naive sportsbooks know, Coby White is about to drop 11 threes in the fourth-quarter tonight!!
- Coby White and Kris Dunn have been building quite the bond. The two help form what White refers to as the “bench mob” in K.C. Johnson’s latest piece for NBC Sports Chicago. Fair name. While White has struggled with some inconsistencies to start the season (as most rookies do), he’s single-handedly been in charge of two of the Bulls four wins thus far. He carried the team with 11 clutch points against the Memphis Grizzlies and had his legendary shooting performance Monday night to give the Bulls a revenge victory over the New York Knicks. Combine White’s hot-hand with the defense menace that is Dunn, and this team’s depth looks a whole lot more legit than last year.
- Similar to Johnson, The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry helped outline this newfound, yet important relationship between White and Dunn. I’m sure everyone on the Bulls roster has giving nothing but endless support for White during his first real look at NBA action, but Dunn has gone out of his way to talk up the Bulls potential star.
Kris Dunn helped push Coby White to his dominant performance against the Knicks: “I tell him every time ‘I’m going to try to push you to be Rookie of the Year.’ If I can do that, that’d be an honor for me.” @DarnellMayberry: https://t.co/cvnOA22PXK

- If this was last year, I’d probably want no interaction between these two players with a fear of Dunn’s underachieving qualities rubbing off on White. However, with Dunn now in the perfect role, I wouldn’t mind these two buddying up. White has all the natural talent in the world on the offensive end, and if he can take away even some of the aggressive skill set Dunn possesses on defense, he could grow into a respectable two-way player.
- Another snippet from Mayberry’s story, Coby White still ran through a 90-minute workout on the Bulls off-day Sunday. How can you not love this kid?
- See, Chiney Ogwumike gets it!

- Bleacher Report wrote a list of teams that need their own version of “The Process,” and despite the Bulls working their way through a rebuild these past three seasons, Zach Buckley believes their “on the bubble” of needing an entire teardown. I can’t live through this again, Bulls! Make it work!
- Wendell Carter Jr. is on the up and up. NBC Sports Chicago’s Mark Schanowski evaluated the big man’s improvements on and off the court this season, both of which have turned him into one of the most intriguing young talents in the NBA. Check it out!
- Here’s a different angle of that dope Arch assist where he knew White was about to land the three. Crowd shots are always awesome (well, when they’re filmed well). Seeing White go off was the best moment of the season, but seeing the United Center fans standing up with utter disbelief (rather than with the intention of leaving) felt like a breath of fresh air.
- Oof. This is one heck of a bold comparison, even if it is sarcastic.

- When Marvel ends up doing a Fantastic Four film, Coby White better be considered for the part of the Human Torch. He’s always got the hot hand.
