    I think Niko made a reputation for himself as a bad player. Then teams underestimated him and he started building some confidence floating under the radar. He still heat-checks from 30 feet far too often.

    Uh oh.

    I missed something interesting. Do you have a clip of it?
    I don't. It was just so blatantly bad that the officials should be embarrassed. Even my friend, who's not a bulls fan thought they purposely called him for a charge to help the Cavs.

    That is a big difference from the way he played at RM where he was considered the best player in Europe only averaging 12pts a game. He was extremely efficient and rarely ever took a bad shot. I agree that shit needs to end plus his perimeter D needs to improve. He has gotten much better down low over time which is a start.

    I like how Felicio had been playing well all season, then has a minor injury and now Hoiberg plays Lauvergne over him

    Bulls won and the heat, bucks and hawks all lost. The Hawks next 3 games are against Boston and 2 against Cleveland. We sadly might end up finishing 6th or 5th.

    There are seasons where losing records don't reflect how good many teams actually are. Seasons where lower half-seeded teams are a mere basket or two away from upsetting eventual champions.

    Then you have seasons like this one, where winning records don't reflect how bad a lot of teams actually are. I can't remember the last time a season has played out where so many good teams have bad records and so many bad teams have good records to compensate for good (cowardly, sure) teams trying to rest key players or just flat out take games off/tank/higher ups playing team politics.

    The ABA division era might be the last time it was this close to being so bad, but for different reasons.

    And the Bulls are right back to being shit. Mirotic, again, showing his lack of basketball IQ

    It's baffling that Lauvergne is playing over Felicio

    Serious question: What good team has a bad record this year. Basketball (the NBA) in general has been hot garbage for the last ~3 years.

    For my taste, I began losing enthusiasm and interest in the NBA when the Big 3 formed in Miami. Boring AF since then.

    And.... they win again. The road to getting swept in the first round continues.


    Pacers play Atlanta one last time. Miami, Milwaukee, and the Bulls have no magic number conflicts. Bulls hold tie-breaks on Charlotte and Detroit.

    Three Bulls games left.
    Playoff scenario
    -The Bulls need to win two to clinch without help.
    -One win + one loss from Miami or two losses from either Indiana or Milwaukee.
    -Zero wins + four losses from Miami.

    And the Hawks rest all of their guys and still blow out the Cavs 😂I guess we don't have a chance of moving up.

    Since we're out of March, Mirotic goes right back to being a bum

    Win by almost 50 points.


    Seriously. WTF, and Miami won too. The Bulls fuck everything up, all for that first round sweep.
