Everyone has missed multiple key guys for substantial time this season. After tonight's game, Chicago will have around a 1.7 SRS this season. That's just not the mark of a true contender. To give you a comparison of the championship winners over the last decade:

21: 5.6 SRS
20: 6.3 SRS
19: 5.5 SRS
18: 5.8 SRS
17: 11.4 SRS
16: 5.5 SRS
15: 10.0 SRS
14: 8.0 SRS
13: 7.0 SRS
12: 5.7 SRS

In the last 10 years, there hasn't been a team to win the chip with worse than a 5.0 SRS. Again, the Bulls have around a 1.7 SRS. Which is 5th in the East and depending on how Dallas does tonight, either 9th or 10th in the whole league.


You spent a lot of time posting that when I already said the Bulls aren't a contender. I'd have loved a 5th seed in the East going into the season.

But I get it, this is the night that Bulls haters gets to flaunt it

Why did you quote me then? I'm not hating. I just said I wouldn't pick Chicago over the other top 5 teams in the East in a playoff series.

Yeah Murray is a straight killer. Really impressive.

Is Duncan Robinson one of the worst contracts in the league? Kid got over paid.

He's been so different since coming back from injury. Says he watched a ton of film since he couldn't go anywhere and it shows.

Not to argue in favor of Chicago but if there's any season to distrust SRS it's this one where many teams have postponed games, and have faced teams with rosters resembling their G-League affiliate. So many teams have capitalized by blowing out said teams while barely beating the normal NBA equivalent of those teams.

Chriss is already on his third 10 day. Apparently as long as we have someone in covid protocols we can keep signing him to 10 days but the Mavs need to find a way to actually lock him up for the rest of the season

srs in the east are all over the place

cleveland is the only east team with a strong srs above 5, bucks and nets have the srs of a low seed

8th game in 12 days so it is understandable. Look out of sorts tonight. Let the Mavs hang around and then they went on a run and I don't know if we have the energy to respond or not.

Grizz outscored 34-18 in the 3rd. Luka was on the bench for most of the run.

I mean it's not a problem as soon as KP is cleared they will cut WCS and sign Chriss.

It's hard to tell why are they waiting but I would guess maybe Mark didn't want to cut him while he's out on personal reasons(for quite a long time so might be serious). Soon they will have no other choice so that will make it easier.

The more obvious guess is that in case trade happens they might need WCS for salary match.

Doncic has been so disappointing this season. The problem is that he thinks he is a better shooter than he actually is and those 3pt bricks are hurting his efficiency.

Even fat Luka is still a bigger game changer than Morant.

If Luka ever decides to get into shape, which I doubt he will, he can probably take over the league.

Grizzlies need to put a bigger body on Luka if they want to stop him. Just bulldozing his way to the rim right now. Suprised that Kyle Anderson isn´t on Luka.

WCS' contract is over 4M for the year, Cuban's been cheaper recently. I think they're looking for an avenue to offload someone in a trade
