The old thread got too long. Please continue all things Lauri here.

The old thread is dead, long live the new thread! May its reign be as long as the Bulls bench!

Why not name this one "Lauri Markkanen Appreciation Thread"?

More discussion about the thread name than about Markanen himself. Can't say Iam surprised.

Because you'd be the only one posting in it.

Now that's a very good suggestion!

Although probably unappreciated by some.

Well, they'll possibly revamp it after he's traded to Spurs. Nah, who am I kidding. He plays lights out the rest of the season and stays with us. :nod:

With Lavine out the next 2 weeks or so, there is a void left that could be filled by a scorer.... If Lauri gets the opportunity and decides to empowers himself instead of chilling till the off season

Bulls need a shot creator. It'd be really intriguing if Lauri could prove himself viable in that role. That would be the best thing for him to improve his own value (be it here or elsewhere).

With Zach out, Bulls are s a) especially by fans expected to keep losing so it takes some pressure off, and b) Lauri probably has more green light to shoot and look for his own shots as we need scoring

If he can't respond and impact, we know he is mentally out for good with the Bulls. I am not saying he has to score 30, but 15-20 a game IF the minutes and usage are there.

Watch Lauri go FebruLauri on people the next 10 games with Zach out, as this board goes nuclear WWIII among the different -stans.

Only the ashes of Bulls fandom will be left, with 3/4 of all posters banned permanently.

As sad it is, if anything like this happened it might be the most interesting (but damn frustrating) show with the Bulls, for rest of this season... considering our trend. (world's smallest violin playing...)

We're not even going to try that, even though we probably should. We're just gonna have Coby and Denzel going wild whenever Vuch doesn't have the ball.

Zach being out doesn't change the fact that he's the 4th best big on the roster...

Game 1 of the return of "febulauri"

3pts, 1-7 from the field, 1-6 from 3 with 5 rebs in 21 minutes.

I'm sure this is everyone else's fault as well smh.

Sarcasm detector broken? It’s boring and annoying to be a fan of a losing crapshow like our current Bullies; anything to spice things up a little; complaining how everybody sucks gets old after awhile.

Well, I guess ApriLauri is 1/10th the player FebruLauri was, haha. Look, I’m done with these babied multi and deca millionaires who can’t muster enough pride to even try hard. Don’t care any more why or whose fault it is. From here on, gotta’ find some humor because I have no intention of letting these guys sour my mood every other night.

BD is playing Lauri the same way Boylen was playing, the same way when Lauri expressed his lack of desire to be in the Bulls. Lauri was only willing to talk about the extension because of the new management. But obviously the management didn't change anything since they are playing Lauri exactly the same way Boylen did, 3 point shooter who spreads the floor.
