Bulls Experiment With Nikola Mirotic At Small Forward 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Dec 28, 2014 4:09 pm

Tom Thibodeau experimented with using Nikola Mirotic at small forward in Saturday's game for the Chicago Bulls against the New Orleans Pelicans.


Mirotic has been very productive in his minutes, which the Bulls are looking to expand.


"I just wanted to get a look at it," said Thibodeau. "It was a start. I want to look at the film."


Thibodeau was asked if he may use Mirotic more at small forward.


"We just have to figure out what we have to do, where we can play efficiently with him on the floor."

What an idiotic thing to say.

Not skillset? Then what? They're both tall and from another country?

Wow that's totally necessary. People on this board are real polite huh?

I'm talking about potential impact. And the fact that they both played for the Bulls, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, some "from another country" and "tall" for you pal!
