PWill comes right out of the gates with a drive to the basket.

The system was pretty basic for Thad. Pnr to the short roll, find the open man.

Sure but you may recall the bulls weren’t running the offense particularly well out the gate this season even with a training camp.



Yes that was the group as a collective learning to play with each other. By the time vuc got here the system was working. Obviously it takes time to get acclimated but the Thadgic role is pretty simple if everyone else knows what they are doing.


But that's besides the point. It's not that I don't think Vuc can run that. It's more than they decided to abandon it in favor of low post offense which the vast majority of the league has shifted away from.

Nah we know better. You also have to factor in the other team playing down to competition.

Williams is also actually playing like he suddenly knows he's good.

I'm pretty sure I was the only one saying that and I was only talking about the high assists that Vuc and Lavines iso/ball hog plays dont ruin. But its cute that you are making it look like "PEOPLE" are saying that.

It makes no sense how every tine at the beginning of quarters, we play no defense and cant make a simple basket. Its like clockwork.

Usually beginning of 1st quarter or 3rd quarters and definitely 4th quarters, book it.

I must have been watching a different Bulls team pre-trade, because I wasn't seeing the well-oiled machine some folks keep eluding to.

I saw an offense that was exactly as "efficient" as the post-trade offense. It looks different, but the results have been identical.

Our play was such that BD benched 2 starters just before the all star break.

Not sure how Capela gets away with two offensive fouls in the space of a second and a half.

This thread. There was one post saying we play better because vooch isn't clogging the paint but nothing about both lavine and vooch.

This board has a lot of seething latent aggression whenever a certain Bulls player is named. I'm glad you called out even this minor micro-aggression. :nonono:

It wouldn't be a Bulls game sans a 3rd quarter / 2nd half collapse against a playoff team. Rinse, repeat.

I'd rather play Mokoka than Denzel.
