Did you guys check the box scores for the games. Wow I thought we were the only one to get massacared but the other tankers are giving us a run for our money.

Bulls got a win ver Brooklyn. No Durant or Harden, but they had Kyrie, Harris, Griffin and Aldridge.

I didn’t see the game but the spread on the stats for the Bulls starters looks damn impressive and well balanced. They might be figuring things out.

Anyone see the game?

I saw parts of it, and it looks like Brooklyn's defense is worse with Griffin and Aldridge, than it was before.

But good for the bulls they got a win. Hate to see Vuc keep on losing. I want them on that sweet spot where we can use thier pick for the 10-15 range

It's hard to win when your best players don't play.

Griffin and Aldridge are not the same players they once were. Chi won because BK's best players weren't playing.

Wouldn't they have to finish at 5 for that to even be the case? I think any team that moves up from 6-14 or whatever automatically goes top 4.

Yeah, they'd have to finish 5th and no outside teams move into the top 4.

There is simply no way how Bulls pick can fall at 5#

As long as they stay outside top 4 record, only teaorethically, at 5# worst record they can draft 5th, but odds for that are basically statistical error ( 2,2%).

Where they are at now, their pick has 76,4% chance to end up being 9th or 10th.

Orlando will either lose pick ( Bulls draft top 4) or get 9-16 pick, regarding of where Bulls will land.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

Obviously the chances of it happening are slim and none, but if I get to pick a dream scenario just for sh*ts and giggles, then it's us at #1 and Bulls at #5. But realistically I'd be ecstatic if it lands in the top 10.

The Toronto win puts them two wins up over Orlando in the W column.

Barring any injury to Vuc or Zach, we will have a late lottery pick from the Bulls.

Historically picks 9-10 are the best at producing all-stars beyond top 4 with a healthy margin. Ideal place to be, not so sure about this draft but still.
Goodbye Vucevic, welcome lotttery picks !!!

Big game tonight between Toronto and Washington. If Toronto wins, they'll have 2 days off before they play the Bulls and it could be for 10th, assuming the Bulls lose to the Pacers tomorrow.

Unless the Bulls win two play-in games, then it is a probable #15 pick.
