Nice hustle by Green.

Nice loss by the Bulls.

Imagine if Embiid got Trae Young calls? Sizism.

Whole lotta suck.

Pat back to looking bad against a strong defense. No bad man 1 (Zach), or bad man 2 (Vuc)...so what’s Lauri’s excuse tonight fellas?

Tank on. Tank on.

I’d be leaning towards letting Lauri walk even if he was willing to stay for $5 million a year. He’s such a natural beta. He just offers nothing anymore.

Lauri has really stepped up with Zach and Vuc out. He could have been doing this all season.

Gotta let Lauri, Denzel, felicio, Sato and even Young go next season. Need to replace them with real savy vets, difference makers and overall better players. Get a defensive assistant to ensure players get through screens. I'd also be fine trading Coby for a legit 3rd option if possible. No knock against Thad but he's not impacting very many wins with his style of play. Gotta get a better replacement, sorry Zach- find a better MVP for the team. Still believe in the AKME regime and I think Donovan can do better next year but it doesn't seem like the regime cared as much after all the losing from the Vuc trade.

He clearly has a deal already on the table 1st day of free agency. I just haven't seen a guy in a long time with future money on the line mail it in like lauri. He is losing millions right now.

Tanking after trading the upcoming pick is a novel strategy. Gotta give the Bulls credit for originality, you don't see many other teams trying that.

That game was either a comedy of errors or an intentional performance art satire of basketball.

At least we're actively trying to tank. Still unlikely to matter but I can appreciate the effort.

Lauri have to play so much horrible basketball as just shooter with Zach or Vuc forever, he not given the #1 role, but he is so good, due to his humble, respectful Finnish upbringing, he refuse to demand coach give him #1 because he is so good at being team player.

See, he is team guy who respect his elder more than loudmouth American NBA rap star. He only need pickled herring and good livable wage with strong trade union, not 20 Bentley.

No need for this type of post that is blatantly mocking and insulting ESL speakers and other users, you can feel free to insult Lauri all you like, but leave the insults of users out of it

Losing can have a benefit after all even if not bringing a high pick,some players can be waived or traded looking for building a better roster.

Tim and Eric are actually running the Bulls organisation at the moment.

We could have easily made the play-in if we just plucked the second best bulls player ever from his Spanish League contract:

One thing Javonte’s performance showed is that damn! We need more athleticism...everywhere.

This team literally hasn’t had a group of real athletes since the dynasty days. That’s absolutely insane.

Elite: Zach

Great: None

Good: Theis, Thad (but old), Pat, TBJ (where the heck is he?)

Meh: Sato, Coby, Lauri, Temple

Bad: Aminu

Horrendous: Val, Vuc, Arci

Even the Rose teams. Derrick was the only elite athlete. They had a few guys in between good/great IMO (“very good”) in Deng, Taj, Noah and Brewer.

Team needs to get its act together, and actually get some guys with speed/strength/length.

This game was pretty much my idea of basketball purgatory. Or any kind of purgatory, for that matter. I'd literally pay good money not to have to watch this one again.

The thing that really takes it to another level of suffering is Adam "Double A" Amin's stupid giggling. This is the point where I can't take it anymore.

So you're using fake broken English to mock the Finnish Lauri fans? Classy /s

So two of Bulls best scorers are out and Bulls only other efficient scorer comes from bench. That is a clear F U from front office for Lauri, so why people expect Lauri to give anything for this team anymore? If you treat someone badly don't expect him to work for you.
