Many of the Bulls fans were not pleased when the idiot coach removed WCJ and put in big foot so SA can score 6 straight points with 3 mins left (then put him back in 1 min later)

he needs to be fired for sucking.

Don't know if anyone saw last night's game. But LaVine missed a pretty bad attempt and Hoiberg was not pleased....

The problem was Lavine waving the screener off twice and Fred not calling a time out to set up a play. Arch just hit two three pointers that actually got the team back in the game or that possession did not matter. Drive and kick was the right play, not stand at the top of the key for 18 seconds and then launch a shot.

Its going to get interesting when Lavine has the ball all the time and Laurie is in the game. I am getting the feeling we will see why Minny gave up on him.

This. The dude is trash. He'd be great on the And1 tour though!
The only reason they matched his offersheet was simply out of pride. "but we can't lose the biggest piece of the Butler trade!"

Bulls just need to realize that simply getting rid of a cancer like Butler and getting the 7th pick was worth it. Now there is a highly inefficient SG that doesn't play D making millions for the next few years. Brilliant.

He's a microwave, not a first option. He just looks like an all-star at times, because #1, ECF, #2 Bulls

I really hate when getting the 7th pick is brought up when they had to swap picks. That was what would have made the deal, by getting 7 and keeping 16. Now they are going to have to throw 100 million at a we dont know what we have in Kris Dunn in a year or two.

He also still has time to get even better. Mainly, his decision making. He’s never been a #1 option and is being relied upon heavily to be the guy. Will be interesting to see how he plays with Lauri back in the lineup. But right now, he’s expected to go out there and be a scoring machine. We’ll always need that from him, but he has to make better decisions.

LaVine haters are tripping. LaVine and Parker are the only guys who can create a shot. Blankeney is a pure chucker. Let him grow into the role. The talent is there.

the talent is there, but I know Arch is basically a nobody, but that nobody just hit two threes. Otherwise they lost by 7. So much was written about the alphas with Butler, Rondo and Wade. Fred could not control them, now we are seeing Lavine not listening, fred doing nothing, so when Dunn is back, its two guys who think they make that shot. Laurie will probably defer and end up getting ripped for not speaking up and leading.

If we end up with three more alphas, will that be enough to get rid of fred?

His response about that waving off the screen was, he did not want two guys jumping out at him. Well, guess what, that means someone is wide fucking open.

This and the fact that he's being asked to score and create for everyone else due to injuries. He's got a lot of pressure on him right now. He's got to carry the entire offense and if he doesn't then they lose. Getting Markanenn, Portis and Dunn back will help him out a lot.

I'm betting this play got him fried.

Zach waving off a play to take a contested 30 footer shows a lack of respect for the coach.
