Dashing Donut, Waiting Patiently (But Happily) on Lauri, LaVine Making History, and Other Bulls Bullets

Chicago Bulls

In the meadow, we can build a snowman … then pretend that –

Oh, hello! I didn’t see you there. Please, come in. I was just singing a little Christmas ditty while working on some bullets!

What’s that? You’d like to read them. Ho, Ho, Ho! Sure thing!

  • The Jordan era has long come and gone, but one vital piece of that great time in Bulls history still rings throughout the Chicagoland area. Of course, I’m talking about the Dunkin’ Donuts Race. As it currently stands, Dashing Donut, Cuppy Coffee, and Biggie Bagel supply the real show on a nightly basis at the United Center, and The Athletic’s Maggie Hendricks wrote all about the great tradition. And if I may say, Dashing Donut is just as real of an OG as Vince Carter in this league. Hang a jersey in the rafters and put some respect on his name. DD FOR LYFE!
  • And now back to your regular scheduled programming. The Bulls may have already broken Thaddeus Young.

  • According to a Sun-Times report, Young is unhappy with the minutes he’s received since joining the team and could eventually seek a trade. If you know anything about Young, this sounds pretty out-of-character, but he also has been averaging his least amount of minutes since his rookie year in the NBA, so it’s easy to understand his supposed frustration.

  • I think this point is certainly a valid one. As noted above, Young is clocking the majority of his time with a rather young, in-experienced bench lineup. And while he’s been known to mentor a younger team, he hasn’t been accustom to playing alongside non-starters over the past several years. Even with the expectation of not coming into Chicago as a starter, it’s not hard to believe Young thought he’d at least be splitting some time with the team’s cream of the crop.
  • On Wednesday, LaVine messed around and made history again.


  • Lauri Markkanen is back to being the second in command to LaVine, but we’re still waiting to really see him breakout. I’m glad we’ve been getting more consistency in his scoring numbers, and now it’s time we seem him start stuffing the stat sheet again. Tonight might be a good opportunity for big-time showing with the Charlotte Hornets in town. He only scored 3 points against the squad the last time the Bulls played them on November 23rd, but we know he has what it takes to dominate them thanks to his 35-point performance in the season-opener.

  • Chandler Hutchison slowly but surely working his way back.

  • ICYMI: Jabari Parker said he’s moved on from his rough and short experience with the Bulls. However, he also made sure to let the Bulls’ organization know Chicago will always be his city: “I just had to move on, but that never changed how I felt about my city because I have more street cred than that organization period,” Parker told ESPN’s, Eric Woodyard. He’s not wrong.
  • Bleacher Report went through and picked every NBA team’s best squad of the decade. Can you guess what team they picked for the Bulls? Of course, you can. The 2010-11 Bulls took home the award, and rightfully so.
  • Throwback content!
