Come for the Bulls, Stay for the Coby White Highlights and Other Bulls Bullets

Chicago Bulls

I need a hug.

  • The Brooklyn Nets made this quite an interesting Saturday morning.

  • Considering I wrote a lot about the Bulls implications in the post above, I’ll avoid any further discussion here. Let’s just hope the Bulls (1) take notes and (2) keep their eye on Kenny Atkinson.
  • Concern about the coronavirus outbreak seems like it’s growing every single day, and reports surfaced yesterday that the NBA might consider playing future games in empty arenas. Wow.

  • At the end of the day, this league needs to do what’s best to keep its players and fans safe, but this would be pretty wild if it were to actually happen. Especially with the playoff race heating up, the whole situation would feel extremely bizarre. I mean, can you imagine that atmosphere? It would feel like watching the PGA tour instead of an NBA game. We’d hear faint clapping from the bench, and all announcers would probably sound all melancholy. Can you imagine Mike Breen trying to give his signature “BANG” call with no crowd noise!?
  • So there is absolutely no way someone can’t be fired for this season, right?

  • The Bulls have won only two games against above .500 opponents this season and neither were against teams in the Eastern Conference. Moreover, Chicago has won only two of its last 14 games, and while I understand many of the key players are trying to get re-adjusted after sitting out for a while, these last couple of games have shown little promise.
  • Last night, Otto Porter, Wendell Carter Jr., and Lauri Markkanen each failed to score in double figures. Markkanen, specifically, looked like a complete disaster. The big man shot 1-10 from the field (0-5 from downtown) and finished with only 3 points. He might be feigning confident, but there is no hiding just how much of a trainwreck this season has been for him.

  • To be clear, I haven’t lost faith in The Finnisher. He is a 22-year-old player who has shown extreme promise in the past and still possesses a unique skill set for a seven-footer. The Bulls’ job is to find someone this offseason that can help fix whatever the heck is going on. PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
  • It’s all bad.

  • Shaquille Harrison went OFF last night for a career-high 25 points.

  • I don’t want to sounds like a jerk (*proceeds to sounds like one*), but when Shaquille Harrison is the team’s second-leading scorer and standout player, you know things are pretty much a mess. The guy is playing for a future job, so I’m happy he’s been able to show organizations what he’s capable of, but if you’re the Bulls, this is nothing to hang your hat on.
  • I respect the heck out of Wendell Carter Jr., which is why I’m begging the Reinsdorfs to get him a better coach.

  • Coby White keeps ballin’ out and the Bulls keep losing? Not the worst outcome in the world.

  • At this point, don’t watch Bulls games (that’s my job), just watch the Coby White highlights after.

  • Man, I’m so happy to see everyone having a grand old time!

  • Denzel Valentine was pretty candid about where Jim Boylen’s reputation stands in the Bulls locker room. Spoiler Alert: It’s not great.
