Hope Vuc gets his then.. and the bulls win because I think they have a lot of brutal games still and they might be neck and necj with us in the tanking wars if they lose too much

I was hoping they would lose and Toronto wins, then the Bulls would be in 11th spot. Plus Toronto plays the Bulls Thursday

I think due to circumstances, some teams were forced into tanking. At a certain point teams were like F-it, we're bad, might as well get a great pick in this lost season.

Raptors - playing away from home all season + covid issues
Wolves - injuries + covid issues
Rockets - trade + injuries
Magic - injuries
Wizards - covid + injuries

Pistons & Thunder are probably the only bottom teams that wanted to tank from the start of this season.

It's just easier this year to get away with BS excuses to sit players this year..
Why ingram didn't play against us? DNP- player didn't bother to show up?
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.

Jarrett Allen has been out for 5 games with concussion protocol. Beal has been a game time decision, for 5 games now.

Minny looks like they are trying to win since getting D-Lo back. First game back, they won. Second game back, almost won today.
Markelle Fultz, Jalen Green, Chuma Okeke, Jonathan Isaac, Wendell Carter Jr.
Cole Anthony, RJ Hampton, Corey Kispert, Mo Bamba. LET'S GO!

I wouldn't be surprised if they win a few and take themselves out of the top 3

Our next game is against the Pacers and they were without Brogdon, Sabonis, and Turner tonight. I think Turner will be out for a while, but hopefully the other two are back

How does the play-in tournament affect the bulls pick?

Let's say they finish 10th in the east but make the playoffs by winning the play-in, does that mean they no longer get a lotto pick?
