Not even the Bulls' plane can avoid the injury bug this season:

When that engine blew I bet Thibs was saying, "We still have more than enough to fly with."

Seriously, this is unbelievable. They could've crashed shortly after take off before the game.

Plane things are scary but of course so much of it is just akin to minor car trouble. So much is backed up and has contingencies

LOL He was probably giving the pilots sh*t for turning the plane back too soon. Just gotta find a way to fly. The when one engine breaks down the next engine's gotta step up.

We can't let the engines distract us from the goal, which is to focus on getting to Indianapolis.

"We have more than enough to fly with"

hahahahaha I love that

The plane's not coming back until it's 110%.
