That stat line looks about right, but the caption leads me to believe that someone in the Bulls org. thinks that with double the minutes they'd get double the production every night.
That's where they'd probably be wrong.
Maybe you could find it in your heart to wish the guy well...? Sheesh!
Where am I wishing him the worst?..
Where are you wishing him well...?

I have high hopes for Hutchison too to tell the truth....
But you probably mean that the addition of Gafford tips the trade in our direction. You may be right -- I liked him a lot in the 2019 draft. I was hoping we'd buy one of Philly's high R2 picks (rather than the #42, which we used to acquire Admiral), & Gafford was one of my targets.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. What his upside is as a GM I don't know. But, he's nothing like Ernie.
