He's playing big minutes with 20-21 year olds who haven't fully figured out the game yet. That will negatively impact his +/-. Look at his play, especially in February. He's probably been a top 5 player overall this month.
That wouldn't explain his negative +/- though. If anything, he would have a positive +/- because the roster is full of players who haven't fully figured out the game yet.
Actually it would. Particularly when those guys are going against starting fives that routinely smoke them. And then the bench has to come in to rescue us..which further hurts the on/off numbers. One of the reasons I never particularly cared for it as a stat. However, just about every one of the Bulls best lineups feature LaVine.
