Best of the Decade, Coby White Is Legit, Boylen Doesn’t Make Enough for That, and Other Bulls Bullets

Chicago Bulls

At some point today, everything you do will be labeled as “the last of the decade,” so go ahead and make it a huge deal.

  • Last time you took the milk out of the fridge this decade.
  • Last time you had to bend over to pick something up this decade.
  • Last time you charged your phone this decade.
  • Last time you do a cartwheel this decade (might as well).

And, most importantly, the last time you read bullets this decade!


  • The best highlight of the decade has to be Rose’s dunk on Goran Dragic, right? The buzzer-beater against Cleveland was wild, but that dunk feels even more infamous in Bulls lore.

  • Being a Bulls fan doesn’t feel so depressing if you just watch the best moments (duh)!
  • Well, as rough as this ending as been, at least we experienced the third-best Bulls’ decade. I guess, just keep in mind, it could have been a lot worse.

  • Unfortunate.

  • Honestly, the more I review last night’s game, the weirder it gets. I don’t mean that in a bad way (necessarily) because there were some positive takeaways, but the Bulls delivered an odd performance. The team didn’t shoot a free throw for the entirety of the first half, despite playing one of their better first halves of the season. By the end of the game, they only got to the line for 8 attempts and shot a 40-107 on the night (a season-high in shot attempts). On the other end, the Bulls won the turnover battle 16-10, flashing some solid defensive moments (in a season proving to be impressive on that front). Anyway, if you want to feel the weirdness, check out Darnell Mayberry’s notes from the game.
  • According to Mayberry, the Bulls missed 31 shots from 8 feet in. Uh … that’s, like, a lot. I know it’s hard to score on that frontcourt, but wow, isn’t missing that many close-range shots hard to do? Mayberry said 25 of those were fast-break layups, dunks or tip-ins.
  • Okay, so this is another one of those rare Boylen quotes that I actually don’t mind.

  • How much do you make, Jim?
  • Some of the foul calls were so ridiculous even Tomas Satoransky got T’d up out of frustration. We know the refs have some sort of bizarre vendetta against Wendell Carter Jr., so that better not be translating over to the whole team. Whatever you did Carter Jr., don’t you dare drag the rest of us into it!
  • I shared this in the postgame last night, but it’s too good not to share again.

  • The Bulls had a decent thing going before getting smacked around by the Bucks last night. Every time this team has taken one step forward, it’s taken about 12 steps back. The challenge now will be re-channeling that improved play we saw over the month of December, and it’s a must with the Jazz, Celtics, and Mavericks up next. If the Bulls want to show any real growth, now is the time. NBC Sports Chicago’s Rob Schaefer wrote about how the Bulls are trying to stay on the right course.
  • Wasn’t “DON’T JUMP ON GIANNIS” in the scouting report?

  • I’ve never seen someone more chill about winning a vehicle.
