I was out at dinner and missed the game. Can anyone catch me up on how this happened?

Caffeine and adrenaline can only last for so long. Then you crash. The Bulls have to send up the Thibs signal.

All true.

But also, we should be playing Bradley for 15 minutes per game. With Vuc healthy, we don't need to play small without a Center. Bradley has proven he can be a plus player and do hte small things we need him to with Vuc off the floor.

We need a backup big… like an actual big. Not a guy who is 6’4 and plays like a big man.

I like ayo.. as far as I am concerned we should pack bags for both Williams an Coby and find ourselves a solid rotation 4/5

The team hasn't played well since going up 20 on the Blazers.

And what is up with Billy D's coaching?? It's like Jekyll and Hyde with him, one game he's good and the next he's doing some dumb ****

Hero ball is back. Zach and Demar were both guilty tonight. Absolute no flow to the offense, not enough passes, not enough player movement, just straight up chucking. This is definitely NOT what we were doing on the offensive end when we were winning.

I really don't understand Green and DJJ's usage tonight. Green, while you can't deny his energy, is not a rebounder or shot blocker. He's redundant on the court. Billy completely lost me on this decision tonight.

Coby White is absolute trash on the floor if his shot isn't dropping. Bad defense, bad ball control, stupid decisions.

I literally could not believe when my favorite NBA team was called for an 8 second violation, in the year 2021, with no trap/defense in the way, at all. What. The. Hell.

Vucevic is trade bait. There, I said it.

Classic case of thinking that you can mail it in, go through the motions and still beat an NBA team on the road.

And early trend that when DeRozan stinks, the Bulls usually lose.

We sucked. Sucked real bad. Refs sucked real bad too. We need some size.

Why can’t we just have a normal good team?

And the fact they reviewed it and still got it wrong is disturbing
This is the worst part. What is going on with this league's officiating when a call like that stands after review.

I don't want to hear how we should have played better blah blah blah. Good teams come back and beat bad teams at the end of games ALL the time. It's how we lost many games the past 4 years in the final minutes.

The Bulls were well on their way to coming back and winning until that terrible call created a 6 point swing we couldn't overcome....even though we still came close.

This L wasn't on Vuc. That's just nothing more than scapegoating. Did he have a great line? No, not at all. But he wasn't responsible for the lack of the hustle, the chucking, all the turnovers, and running out small ball lineups who, somehow, were unable to cover up the 3pt line and let Houston shoot 47% from 3.

I knew he would look bad and he should get better but I do not want him in the rotation right now.


For awhile, as strongly as I agreed that he should not be playing, I thought reasonable minds could differ on the issue. I don’t think that anymore. Get him off the floor until he’s ready.

Get the bad losses out of the way early, learn from them and become a better team later when it matters.

The Wizards just lost to the Pelicans by 25.

Let's not act entitled now. We have a good team and a very high ceiling.

Dissapointing but it's just a game. Let's move forward.


With the upcoming schedule, they could be barely above .500 in a couple weeks. It was looking like we could be a top 4 seed, but this is a massive buzzkill



Didn't we just go through this?? We went 8-4 in that stretch everyone was so worried about. Not only did they play well, but they were short handed and still learning to play with eachother

We'll definitely end up a top 4 seed. Too talented not to. Still have a trade deadline to improve plus the buyout market.

Not to mention, the improvement of team chemistry as the year progresses.

I swear this team would be a contender with a prime Taj Gibson. That’s it. That’s how close this team is to bring playoff ready.

They've been doing that the whole west-coast trip. It's either Derozan ball or Lavine ball in the 4th.

This is like the definition of a "normal good team". They just aren't great.

I would be perfectly fine with seeing some DNP-CD's from Coby.

I don't like it whatsoever that he steps into 15-20 minutes per game immediately after not playing for 3 months. Especially because:

a) The team was playing really well without him
b) He's never been a part of a winning product on the floor in his NBA career
c) It's screwing up rotations in that it's making the lineups on the floor REALLY small and a liability on defense

To play Coby you're losing minutes from Alize Johnson or DJJ who give you a lot more size, athleticism, and rebounding.
