I am hoping for some random 10 game suspensions to be doled out to out team. We need to lose this game. Dont disappoint, Bulls.

revenge game for the Skydome win which prevented the MJ Bulls from matching the future pre-KD Warriors record.

We had the 7th pick 3 years in a row. Ended up with Lauri, Wendell, and Coby :banghead:

He's just not that good. A rotation NBA player for sure, but he's often injured, sometimes plays passive, and is very streaky.

Lauri could have been Donovan Mitchell / Bam
Wendell could have been SGA / MPJ
Coby could have been Tyler Herro / Rui Hachimura

So 7th pick is very valuable if your FO knows how to find talent, especially in this year's deep draft.

I would say it's more about unrealistic expectations than on court production. After a decent rookie season, especially in a big market, ppl seem to expect substantial linear growth. That hasn't happened with him - his numbers have stayed relatively steady. But why? It doesn't appear to be a case of more usage, less efficiency. His usage has stayed steady, too, and his efficiency has actually ticked up (61% TS vs 55% as a rookie). I don't think that necessarily means he can be a star with more usage, but I do think he may be getting undervalued as he nears FA.

Most lottery picks end up being role players or overpaid allstars lol

It's the injury concerns with him too. He's never been able to stay on the court which is a red flag for a player looking to get paid.
