And? Thats averages and Boston is still warmer because Boston is on the coast and unless a powerful nor'easter comes up the coast they dont have to worry about blizzards even for two inches of snow. Chicago is colder and windy and experiences artic blasts that last a lot longer than they do on the east coast if they even reach the east coast. boston is a 30 minute plane ride or so from NYC or a hour plane ride from AC. There is nothing around chicago to go to for any reason especially in the winter. want to fly from boston to dc or baltimore for whatever reason/strip club tack on another 30-45 mins max from AC.

chicago is windy as fuck and is in the middle of nowhere country. its why pro baseball players arent falling over themselves to get to STL even though outside of NYY its the best franchise in baseball and there isnt a close 3rd nipping on their heels. giancarlo stanton used his NTC to reject STL in a trade from miami who is AWFUL because he wanted to be in NY or LA.

Ive been to chicago, been to ny, havent and wont ever go to LA. chicago however is neither and it doesnt matter how many people live in chicago. do players mind playing baseball in chicago? nope because 90% of that is in nice weather.

I'd love for the bulls to finally get those players with just cash but again until they do its just a wish and a prayer and again where are you going to from chicago as a rich athlete on your off day thats within a 2 hour flight? otherwise you are spending half your off day traveling
Are you sure you really comparing a sport with a salary cap to a non-salary cap sport?? Are you sure you want to do that?

LOL!!!

Whats wrong with L.A.? Snowdrift deep in Libtards?
the entire state of california is trash. half this countries homeless live there and the county of LA ORange county or whatever the fuck its called is all ran by liberals/democrats not republicans and they had a bill on the table to help the local homeless and they voted against each other, those for it and those against it and they are of the same party with no opposing party opposition.

70% of small businesses are lost thanks to their politicians shutting down the state for a pandemic.

people are leaving by the tens of thousands every few months

while still telling regular people they cant work, cant eat outside while at first saying they could eat outside. told the world that hollyweird was an "essential" and when filming those on the set/crew must eat outside. so these film companies movie and television set up large eating areas outside shut down restaurants as a huge middle finger to the every day joe thanks to their alliance with the government. but hey if you want to go watch some cringe psa and think they care about you, you do you. if you believe them i still got my man on the moon that can get you the best cheese you have ever ate. its not cheap and there are delivery delays due to covid and there are no refunds but i can get it for you.

Right?! He also mentions Stanton wanting out of Miami. I guess Miami has shitty weather and the no income tax thing must not matter now. He contradicts his own “points” within his response. No point bothering w him anymore
Stanton went from Miami to NY and plays baseball in the spring, summer and late fall if they make the playoffs. I didnt contradict jack fucking shit. You need to get smarter and pay attention. I said Stanton turned down STL while in Miami I also clarified earlier in the post that baseball isnt played in the buttass cold months like basketball "even indoors". The connection between Stanton (a MLB player) saying no to STL and a NBA superstar having never signed with the bulls as a free agent is nobody wants to play in the middle of BFE for a variety of reasons depending on the sport.

Name the last time a superstar free agent signed with chicago, a real free agent not re-signing your own free agent. Name the last time thats happened in general with any northern team in the NBA. Amare? Amare was a superstar? Carmelo? Dont count he was with the team previously for a short time and is from there.

Even the pacific northwest with seattle and portland...name the last free agent superstar to sign there?

Literally the closest case we have is KD to GS and while NoCal is cooler than SoCal hes not having to worry about freezing his nuts off in the Bay or finding plenty to do up and down the coast or a little east to Reno or Vegas. And for KD he enjoyed playing in the tech sector with his free time.

I don't get why you all put Zach on the trading block.
Like trading away our best player has worked out so well in the past ...

I'm getting rid of Coby & Wendell first.

I'm unsure about Lauri though.

All this insight from a guy who has never been there living in a misinformation age. Probably accurate.

Drive up the coast of Cali some time and get back to me. Go up the mountain in Tuolumne county and meet a mountain man. Visit the Redwoods, or John Muir Forest. Might start with Encinitas in San Diego if you want a chill vibe and nice beaches.

There is a reason 50,000,000 people live there or whatever. And you have to take that into consideration like "tens of thousands are leaving every few months."

Many people are struggling everywhere right now and hoping the grass in greener somewhere else. Those numbers don't say much.

lol you’re the one that brought up Stanton as an example. Not anyone else. Now lie in your bed, just cuz you pissed in it, doesn’t mean you don’t still lie in it

Many people are struggling in demtard ran cities and state because those are the ONLY cities and states that continued to stay shutdown. And no I dont have to live there or go there to know all about it, the internet is amazing. having family out there that block you on social media just asking why they were supporting old ass joe with everything going on in their state.

If you arent rich, california is a dump. Havent played video games in over a year and a half, never played them that much to begin with but sold everything because i got bored with it all. Usually play from 7pm cst to 5/6/7 am cst when i played. Everyone for the most part that i played online with was in california, nobody said it was a nice place. it wasnt talked about much but when it came up usually by them and them calling it a dump they cant wait to get out of, i'll take their word for it.

fvcking first responders cant afford to live in the city of SF anymore because the techtards are driving up the cost of living, but "california is wonderful". SF has a mother fucking poop department, a poop department! to clean human shit off the sidwalks

That‘s not how roster management works lol. I can never understand how someone can be pro or con any trade without evaluating the return consideration.

No offense but the mentality of “ he’s our best player, don’t trade him” is lazy and weak.

What the Bulls did is not how roster management works, lol.
First of all the team who gets the best player in the trade usually wins it!

You can trade away your best player though, if you fill in the needs and upgrade other positions with it.
Is that what the Bulls did?

The Bulls got Dunn, Lavine and Markkanen for Jimmy.
Has Dunn from 2017 till 2020 even been a better player than Rondo? (Although I hate this guy). And he is not even on the team anymore.
Zach vs. Jimmy, we don´t even have to talk about that. Jimmy is the better player.

So that leaves Markkannen as the deciding factor. Was him being an upgrade at PF over Mirotic worth going through this rebuild?
The Bulls were 27-55 the year after the trade.

Maybe the Bulls keeping Jimmy in 2017, have a chance of drafting either Donovan Mitchell or Bam Adebayo 6 or 7 spots behind at where Markkanen was picked and look for a PG in FA... maybe that would have been a better path...

Trade for mo Bamba. hes buried in Orlando behind Vooch and Khem. They already exercised his rookie option for whatever reason when they dont play him and dont intend too. Give him a year and a half to try out here, cant be worse than Gafford who judging by the box score Donovan isnt a fan of playing a lot even with injuries to others.
