Merry Draftmas, everyone. Or Draft Mubarak depending on what you practice. It's our favorite day of the year, folks!

As a reminder, many people enjoy seeing the picks unfold live on TV without any spoilers. If you want to reveal Woj bombs of picks prior to them being announced, please use the spoiler function above. For those of you who are new to this, it should look something like this:

Spoiler:
With the 4th Pick, the Chicago Bulls plan to select Mookie Blaylock.


If it's just a rumor, that's ok to post without the spoiler function. Use your judgment and basically just use Game Of Throne etiquette when trying not to spoil the draft for your fellow RealGM family members. Thanks and good luck!

Pretty much for the past 20 years draft day has basically been one of the best days of the year for Bulls fans, if not the best.

New regime! 4th pick! Here we go!

so, what's the expectation for the number of prospects to be suited up for the remote draft? what pick number will be the first one to be chilling in casual sweats in his living room?

We’ve longed for something huge for years. But it’s been since we drafted Rose. High expectations have been beat out us most of us. I call it: Anticipointment Day.

So hyped!!!
I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of November 17th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Haliburton; 5-Williams; 6-Lewis Jr; 7-Nesmith; 8-Vassel; 9-Avdija; 10-Okongwu.

I'm torn on whether to go with or without spoilers this year.

I usually turn off my phone until the Bulls pick, but that might be too much effort for a Zoom draft.

We've offered Denzell the QO, whatever happens with the draft is just gravy.

I'm going to try very hard to keep to watching the televised draft without reading spoilers until after the Bulls pick has been announced. I assume tweets are going to be flying like mad, so it'll likely be really difficult.

If I had to bet $20 on em right now, I'd guess Bulls pick Williams at #4. I expect and demand shenanigans.

and it will continue to happen to be until we draft a top 3 player in a league. because if you dont have a superstar you should do everything to get one. then we can be optimistic about something else, like winning a title? now that is something what Bulls fans didnt hear about 10 years now? even then we were not favorites. so 20+ since then.
“If you were grading rebuilds and dropped in on the United Center on Wednesday night, you saw one team flying up the court, launching 3-pointers, sharing the ball and generally looking like it was having a lot of fun. And then you saw the Bulls.”

Good deal. But I’m gonna be sick if we are picking #7 for the 4th year in a row.
