Bulls (And White Sox) Donate $200K, How Bulls Players Are Staying in Shape, Markkanen’s Diet, and Other Bulls Bullets

Chicago Bulls

I don’t know if any of you feel this way, but I certainly feel like I’ve been a little more “all business” in my writing lately. It’s just over the past couple of weeks, these surrounding circumstances have made it hard to write in the typical upbeat, lighthearted tone that I usually prefer.

With that said, I’m going to try and have a little more fun! And if any of you guys have things you want to talk about/posts you want to read PLEASE don’t hesitate to comment or reach out on social! We’re all trying to get through this weird time together, and I greatly appreciate any of you still checking in on the reg.

  • Chicago represent! Hoo Hoo!

  • Over the past few days, the city of Chicago has gotten some important help from sports teams across the city. To aid in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the Chicago Bulls (along with the White Sox) have donated $200,000 dollars to the city’s response fund. The announcement comes the morning after we learned that the United Center would be turned into a logistics hub to support Chicago’s relief efforts. And for more on that, make sure to check on our post from yesterday.

  • I’m always happy to say I’m a Chicagoan, but when I see the community come together like this, it’s the cherry on top. Without straying too far in a non-sports direction, I just want to say I’ve been proud of the effort this city has made toward combating the spread. I know the city … and country … and world … has a long way to go, but I truly feel like the majority Chicagoans have been doing their part to get this all figured out. Hey, we all want to get back in the Wrigleyville bars and bond with our fellow Cubs, Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Sky, Fire, Red Stars, and *gulp* White Sox fans. Until then though, I love knowing that while sports are on hiatus, they’re still impacting our city for the better!
  • The Chicago Bulls were – surprisingly – one of the most proactive teams when it came to helping their players stay in shape. According to ESPN, the Bulls sent out an at-home workout plan to their players on the second day of the league’s suspension.

  • “Our strength and conditioning coach sent us a little program that has different types of lunges, different types of pushups, and you do it at a high volume to get a little sweat going,” Wendell Carter Jr. told ESPN. “Nothing that anybody else can’t do.” Does someone want to send me that plan? My workout currently includes lifting my laptop on and off my lap.
  • When the NBA is on hiatus … you write about Lauri Markkanen’s eating habits:

  • Bleacher Report gave NBA comparisons for the projected top picks of the 2020 NBA Draft, and the potential No. 1-overall pick has quite the familiar comp. Georgia’s high-volume scorer Anthony Edwards was compared to Bulls not-so All-Star Zach LaVine. Of course, each player is different, but I’d be curious to know how interested teams would react to such a comparison.
  • Jordan’s fadeaway was THE most unstoppable move.

  • Jim Boylen vs. Nick Nurse in Round 1 … can someone say BLOWOUT!?

  • You love to see it!

  • Archie getting some love from the big boy account!
