White is a one man run for the other team.

This is so weird. When has this team ever had a legit post player?
Uhhh what season was it where Taj grew 8 inches and put on 20 pounds of muscle?

In all seriousness it was Pau Gasol.

I love Pau but he was 73 years old by the time he signed with us and he was never known as a banger in the post. He was a finesse and soft touch. I feel like he never got doubled.

Vooch is a sh%# brickhouse with those screens and the dude is able to back down like 95% of the league.

I'm not as high on TBJ as some of you. He plays out of control and has a quick trigger, taking questionable shots when teammates are open. Obviously he's a huge upgrade over Hutch.

Haven't been able to watch the last two games, but it seems like the Bulls are starting to gel and improve.

Well now he is being matched up predominately against bench players, and though he has been inconsistent as a starter, he is an overmatch against most bench bigs around this league.


So is he really a bench big ala Harrell

He is 21 years old. He is going to make mistakes, just need him to continue to improve and we could have something.

He doesn't miss on pnr defense. Because of that it'll be impossible to keep him off the court so long as he's not a 3 ring circus on offense. Which he hasn't been so far.

The one thing you don't want to do defensively against Coby is overplay him.

Nice play by Coby getting the D to collapse, Lauri didn't have anyone within 12ft. Taking a warm up shot.

Oh I'm not suggesting he shouldn't play, I just don't think he's a future starter like some do. I can see why people are high on him though.

I really hope Zach is still hurt. His game has regressed significantly post AS break.

If he can just up his handle a bit and get stronger he could be a great scorer. Guess he has one more offseason to prove it in Chicago.

To me, more so than wins and losses, this is a development year, which is why I understand him sticking with certain players out on the floor when the team is under pressure, so they can continue to learn, instead of quickly pulling the plug on them. And though it's difficult to think that way during the games, as Bulls fans we want them to win at all costs, but with how young our team is, I'm all for prioritizing player development this season, even at the cost of losing some games. Of course, developing the players and winning is the ideal combination, but point is, I understand why Billy allows players to play through mistakes at times.
Why so serious?
