Need him as leader of this tank job.
Lulz, the only reason to keep him.

But all in all, the Sixers are a tough team, saw some good things. I'm starting to like Portis for the first time, and I've been on the WTF Bobby Bandwagon since the start. Mind you, I am trying to find reasons to enjoy watching, not just be a downer all the time. Dont need deez Bulls to keep bringing me down, and for the first time since the MVP Rose season, I'm actually enjoying spurts, not when Cam is out there though. Wow, he really should just sign in China.

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 :shrug:

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.
