Ugh, Lavine is back and Vuc is out, have we ever had both guys healthy in the same game? I think the total count is 0.

So if Lavine is clear, why isn't he playing tonight?

Did Joel and Ben even board the airplane to Chicago?

Read the room guys - the tank has clearly been on. Rest of the league knows it. :lol:

LaVine tested negative twice and felt fine over a week ago. Vuc had an MRI that showed nothing. Troy taking his time with an ankle sprain. No idea what Lauri is even nursing.

I officially checked out at the last Knicks game, besides a few glances at Pat and Coby. Get in the lottery.

Unfortunately the Bulls may have no excuse but to play a full healthy roster in the final 5 games, as clearly nobody is really injured. Hopefully the Nets, Bucks, Raptors and Celtics give 2 craps about winning, but I'm not sure they do. As bad as the Eastern Conference has been, this might be the most apathetic playoff race ever considering nobody really gives a damn about the 7th seed. I thought the Orlando bubble was exciting basketball, but it seems like the NBA bit off more than it could chew with this condensed, lackadaisical regular season and play-in planning. The NBA "product" has been really, really bad the past 2-3 months. Absolutely horrendous officiating, more ads than I could ever recall (I understand they needed to pump revenue due to empty arenas, but I bet the bump remains after they're back, cause why not sell us more insurance and banking services), tons of injuries, tons of DNP-rest (OKC sat a $33m Horford what, 2 months ago?), zero practices and it looks like some teammates hardly know each other.

On principle alone, I don't even know why I've wasted my time watching guys earning millions times the average Joe compete like it's a summer rec league. Genuinely did enjoy some of the brighter Bulls moments, before the deadline (happy for Zach and Thad's pre ASB seasons), but I just hope the league as a whole is in a better place next year. A few teams have put out very nice performances this year: Sixers/Embiid, Nuggets/Jokic, Hornets, Jazz, Suns. But next year has got to be better. Feels like 16 tank jobs since 4 weeks ago- just too many.

If the Bulls lose tonight, they will have won 4 more games than last season, with the same number of games played.

4.

Truth.

The league is being ruined by a video game approach to managing, star consolidation, and turning every game into a 3 point shooting contest.

Just line the balls up on racks like they do in the ASG.

Considering we're not even going to make the playoffs and it's no guarantee that we bring Thad back next year, it was really a mistake to not sell high on him at the deadline.

Pacers 139 - Wizards 154. Wtf is that, no defense being played at all in that game. Also wizards all of a sudden winning most of their games.

They're really gonna act like Coby just threw Ben Simmons on the floor?

PWill jogs up the floor lackadaisically, and his closeout was slow on Danny Green shooting a corner 3.

Lauri's defense on Seth Curry shooting a 3 was pathetic. He stands 5 feet away, not even in front of the shooter, and holds his hand up.

Effin' Curry. Shyte shots, 2 with a hand in his face, and one on an off-balance step through... but made all 3 of them. He's not a scrub by any means, but I hate it when random guys just go off on the Bulls just jacking up bad shots. It's been happening all year.

What is bad is that most about this season is a team that was 0-6 to start the season in Washington, since we traded them Gafford, they have won at like a ,700 clip.

On top of that the team that is actually tanking in Orlando is only 5 games back of us and have our pick.

This royally sucks.

Give Dotson a look. For Christ’s sake.

Brick, brick, brick on one end. Splash, splash, dunk on the other. A good team spanking a poorly shooting bad team.

Now it's a guy with a name that sounds a lot like Milk Shake clowning us.

BTW, lots and lots of D and lots of shooting on that Sixers team. Lots of scoring as well. If they're healthy, they'll be a very tough out for anybody.

Yawn.

Sixers are doing this on auto pilot.

Good thing Zach and Vuc aren't playing or I assume the Bulls would be losing by 40 instead of 20?
