Highlights from Chicago Bulls bubble 

Post#1 » by wonderboy2 » Sun Sep 27, 2020 11:33 am

Don’t know how to post videos on this board and the highlights are limited but a few things I’ve noticed. Carter looks way slimmer. Seen him matched up vs Gafford twice and he had 2 impressive blocks on Gafford and one where he got the block on Gafford and they passed the ball back to Carter and he ran the ball up the court. He actually looked very fluid doing so, for a second I thought he was Porter. Also Markannan looks to be in good shape as well. Carter also had a nice pass to Markannan for a dunk. I think this team is going to start playing better together because most of them are coming back from last year so they should have some chemistry together even though a lot of them were injured. I’m eager to see a Coby-Lavine-Porter-Markannan-Carter line up. I think those will be the starters. No offensive liabilities out there. Also this is no lie, Felecio actually looks in shape, couldn’t believe my eyes. Actually saw some muscle definition instead of him look out of shape. Probably still a scrub though.

Nice. Thanks for the info. How did you get the opportunity to view the Chicago bubble games?

In the photo I saw, Carter looked slimmer to me too. That would be great news! LOL on Felicio, but it is a contract year.

What does this mean? "Markkanen looked to be in good shape"? I am not interested in his any shape or form. Does he look like f NBA player and is he tradeable after this bubble at least? Did he add anything new. Did he shoot only 3s because he is soft? Did he fail post up a midget or two? More please. More.

You guys are acting like he was in the bubble - I'm pretty sure you're just referring to the highlights on social media, correct wonderboy?

I agree, they look good. Lauri had those vanity muscles in the upper body which were practically pretty useless. He looks slimmer and It think that will help him significantly. Hopefully he can build a somewhat lower body instead, that's what he needs.

The NBA has some videos up, it's practice on YouTube, find more if you like.

All these guys have had to do for 6 months is work out with their trainer, they should look like they are in great shape. That's not much to brag on, they haven't played basketball and they haven't had very much floor time as teammates for the past 2 years. That's what I need to see,

This got me excited ngl. If he can live up to his Horford-type potential, that'd be awesome. I'm worried about the injury bug. Training staff really needs to step their game up

Looks more like ball handling for PF.

Glad Wendell is working on his handles, but:

(A) So Slow.

(B) More worried about his jumpshot.

Good God I hope Lauri has a good year. I was all in on him in year 2. Want to be excited about this team again.

Good to see him looking a lot less chunky. He's got some work to go if he wants to cement a starting role going forward, but a good start.

When he got the ball he was at least 6 ft away from the paint and his ending shot was a turn around fade away jumper 10 feet away from the paint.

That's not post play.

Post play, is when the player sets up his position as close as he possibly can to the paint, then turns or dribbles into the paint for a short shot or dunk.

No it's still post play, you described playing in the low post.
