    Did anyone see the Bulls perform a single defensive concept for any stretch last night?? I mean, we all knew the team would struggle defensively and it is the first game... but there wasn't a single person who attempted to defend somebody last night.

    Really like what I saw offensively from LaVine and Portis. If LaVine can create space and be consistent with finding open shots instead of the dreaded 10 second dribble and chuck, I think he's going to be a 22-24 point a night guy (on a bad team, of course). Portis rolled the dice on not working an extension, but if he evolves into a 17-7 floor spacer who can be somewhat competent defensively against the 3-4-5's, the Bulls might not be able to afford him.

    I saw one. Then they looked and saw Cam was there and not Dunn, quickly reverted back to hoiball on guard.

    Its pretty funny that Holiday is our best option at the 3. I think Lavine is alot like Butler, and might be better at the 3 than the 2 and get a better option to play the 2.

    I thought Carter was supposed to need to earn his minutes after learning from Lopez.

    Lavine is 6'5 on a good day, he won't survive at the 3 lol.

    And if we're really being honest with ourselves, Carter is probably better than Lopez already.

    Lavine at the 3? Don't be like that guy that came around here for a few years and said Carmelo would solve the Bulls SG problem.

    Or, be like that guy. Wendel Carter is a better PG than Cam Payne, so fuqit

    Zach LaVine is third Bulls player to score 30+ points in the first two games of the season. First to do it since Jordan in 86-87. Other was Love in 71-72.

    I'm waiting for them to shuffle in Hinrich to replace Hoiberg.

    Anyway what a proper way to lose tonight. Giving up an easy layup in the clutch due to an unacceptable defensive failure. Why was Jabari in for crunch time defense anyway?

    So we are convinced to just dump him to a contender at the deadline with him being more rested than being on the starting lineup and getting a higher pick for him?

    I guess it just goes back to the front office saying Carter will need to earn his minutes, and thats not a bad thing.

    I agree, by all appearances they are set to break the wrong kind of records.

    Lavine is legit, he has special qualities. Can't play a damn lick of defense. Parker can't play a damn defense. Payne same. Valentine same.

    Dunn-Lavine-Parker-Portis-Carter Jr could have some potential for balance I guess, when not getting beat up the floor. Not sure what the fuck they were doing with the second first rounder this year...should have been searching for defense instead of the next Lavine.

    They should consider drafting every Wichita St player they can get. Looking for the next Green...anything.

    With the way the NBA is playing out, 130 points a game against for months would not surprise me.
