I’m not arguing who is superior or not, but I’m gonna flat out deny that Bamba “just don’t got it”.

Over the last 3 games, in 17mpg he is averaging:

11ppg on 9fgas (42% from 3 on 2 attempts/game)
6.7rpg
1.7apg
1.7bpg

With a positive +/- as well, whilst the team is 2-1.

The kid is only just starting to dig into the gap between his potential and his ability, too. I’d say that’s pretty damn promising.

WCJ also looks equally great, so I’m doubly happy.

Meanwhile Vuc is leading the Bulls back into the lottery. I guess he never had it like so many here thought.


You have to admit though, with Coby and Zach's injury.. they look worse than us. Here even though JI and Fultz were out, he still had Evan and AG.

That was just a comment to wind BMP up. It’s too early to tell how they’ll mesh. They’re doing well against Utah so far tonight.

I’m rooting for them to lose for our benefit, but I’m not going to be unhappy for them if they make the playoffs.

The Chicago schedule looks brutal coming up, in terms of the number of games in a short span. They play us on the 5th game in 7 nights. Unless we sit players, we'll likely beat them.

sick (non-covid). Same sickness as MCW; hopefully doesn't spread further throughout the team. Birch started, played 5 mins, then bounced.
