I think Zion ends up a Bull or Knick. Probably a Knick. NBA is just better when New York or Chicago or both are good. I don't think the NBA will allow Zion to wind up with the Suns or Cavs

Unless they strongarm the Bulls or Knicks to pick Zion with their pick it's entirely possible that both FO's derp around and pass on him and he ends up in Cleveland anyway lol

Zion next to Carter would be the beginning of some nice Blue chip grit. Not everyday you can get one player with that talent who is also tough much less two in a front court.

Target Cousins ( or Thompson or Durant, lets be real whoever we can get) on the FA market (which they should have already done, especially since his timeline wouldn't have saved the tank)...

and now you have a size advantage that can play a bit.

I think Lavine can stay and then you just need that PG or decide to move on from PG in today's NBA. Go 5 strongs and no weak link if they can all pass and shoot. A slasher like Lavine with a Zion could make that work. Cousins and Wendell terrorizing the glass and the defense. Wendall able to rotate out. Cousins forcing other teams to play inferior bigs.

I guess with the lottery the dream never dies. Bulls could bounce back, but Zion is the key.

The Bulls have a horrible reputation. We aren't getting any good free agents bro. Especially not with Boylen and his 1980's offense.

Hoiberg's stock rises



Im glad they thought it was imperative to up Boylen's pay beyond this year.

At this point would be satisfied with Zion, Barrett, and Morant,
Guaranteed that GarPax will draft the safest player available (highest floor) and will not assume any risk in exchange for upside.

Look at their drafts, especially the past two years, they take the player available with the highest floor because they only care about maintaining their jobs rather than taking on a calculated risk and trying to build a contender.

We are going to spin in circles until those dipshits are removed, which of course will not occur until the fans pull back on spending.

Gar was out watching Ja yesterday. He dropped 40 with 11 assists and 5 steals. If that kid can correct his shooting he’s going to be a problem in the league.

This take also happened before yesterday's loss...... woof.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">For those rooting for a Bulls loss today, a reminder that the worst 3 teams in the NBA have the exact same lottery odds of getting the top pick- 14.0%.

True all the top 3 teams have the same odds to get #1, but we still don't want to finish out of the bottom 2 IMO. I think you still have the same odds to drop down in the draft(Lowest worst team can pick is 4th, 2nd worst team 5th pick, 3rd worst team 6th, etc...).

I want them to lose every game. I don't want them to tinker between 3/4/5. That would be a disaster.
