Post Game Analysis for Bulls vs Heat
The Bulls and Miami Heat just went at it in Miami. The Bulls WON 105-89. Zach Lavine joined the ranks of the injured, sitting out the game with a mild ankle sprain. Not sure how long he will be out, but in this game, it wouldn’t make much difference. Jabari Parker didn’t even take his first shot attempt until the 4th quarter, playing limited minutes. Bobby Portis was on FIRE in the 4th quarter.

Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans, but doesn’t want to be a Bull.
The big NBA news of this week (and in years) was that Anthony Davis has informed the New Orleans Pelicans that he won’t be signing an extension and has requested a trade.
Though Bulls fans would love the possibility of A.D. returning home to Chicago, it’s almost 100% unlikely to happen.

Wendell Carter Jr is out of surgery and ready to rehab
Carter underwent the season-ending surgery on Monday. He’ll be in a cast for 10 days and begin rehab on the thumb while wearing a splint. Though Carter never explicitly stated his rookie season is over, the Bulls have 11 weeks remaining in the regular season and will be in no rush to bring back their 19-year-old foundation piece.
Carter’s rookie season was typical but one that featured more good than bad. It took him just a few days to supplant Robin Lopez as the team’s starting center, a position he didn’t relinquish despite being one of the league’s youngest players. He averaged 10.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 25.2 minutes.
He played multiple roles in his 44-game rookie season, acting as a third scorer and at times an initiator in the high post while Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn were sidelined early in the season. As the Bulls regained their health Carter was able to focus more defensively and work around the rim.
Jim Boylen applauded Carter’s maturity in his rookie season and how he was able to bounce back from bad quarters by not letting it affect the rest of his game. His hard-nosed defensive principles certainly played to what Boylen looks for in a foundation, and Boylen was pleased with how Carter improved his shooting and decision making in the pain.
“I think he had a great learning curve in those 44 games and he’ll keep learning as he’s watching, things will make more sense to him now while he’s watching. And it’s not ideal but it is what it is.”
Carter will soak in as much as he can the rest of the season while he rehabs the thumb, and it’s Boylen’s hope that he’ll travel with and be around the team during the final weeks of the season.
Jabari is ready for 25 minutes a game
After missing the Atlanta game with a right patellar tendon strain, Jabari Parker says he expects to be available against the Clippers. He wants to play “good minutes.” “I’m a 20-25 minute guy,” Parker said. “10 minutes isn’t for me.”

Lopez vs Dunn in practice
It was reported that cent Bulls practice featured a brief altercation and shouting match between RoLo and Kris Dunn, with the two yelling at each other and Lopez being told to “cool off,” according to Teddy Greenstein at the Chicago Tribune. Lopez did not speak to media about the incident, but Dunn said they “just practiced hard.”
“We had a very, very competitive practice,” Jim Boylen said in an ESPN story by Malika Andrews. “I felt like we had some guys who are sick of not winning games.”
Boylen explained to reporters that there were no punches thrown and that everyone “treated each other with respect” when they came back. He also said that Lopez has been frustrated that he is seeing his minutes cut this season.
This is a very telling scenario, as RoLo is generally the most calm of the Bulls players. You can tell that things are getting to a boiling point with such a bad record combined with daily rumors that involve different trade scenarios.
Bobby Portis Doubles Down on the Bet on Himself
We’ve talked about how it may have been foolish for Portis not to take the offer the Bulls presented to him earlier in the year. How injuries this season may have cost him millions of dollars in the long term. However, Bobby seems to have no issues with it.
“Obviously I’ve had some injuries up to this point, but I still feel like everything is lined up. It’s about me just staying healthy now and me doing my thing. The wins and losses obviously come and go from game to game. You really can’t control that part all the time. We control our effort.
“But me, personally, I just need to stay healthy, be on the court, play as hard as I can when I can. With the minutes that coach Jim [Boylen] gives me, go out there and play with force. . . . I’m just focused on my team, turning this around, and going out there and having fun. Enjoy the ride the rest of the year.”
When talking about remaining a Bull, Bobby is pretty sure he wants to stay with Chicago.
“Obviously, I know that I really want to stay a Bull,” he said. “I can’t see myself in any other jersey. It would be weird to start the next season off in another uniform. I’ve been here for four seasons now — time flies fast — but I think I will be a Bull. . . . I’m the longest-tenured Bull and don’t want that to change.”
That he’s the longest-tenured Bull is shocking in itself.
“Yeah, that’s crazy,” he said with a laugh. “To be around this long . . . obviously ‘Bulls’ across my chest means a lot to me. I really take pride in that every time I step on the court. But at the same time, I feel like I’ve got a long way to go.”

Bulls Podcast 21 hosted by Marcus Couch and Wyse Black. Farewell to the Tank Commander – Cameron Payne, Bulls Trade for MCW, Memphis pulled the trade trigger too soon, Thibs is out in Minnesota, Bobby Portis is Back and a look ahead to upcoming games this week.
Welcome to the Bulls Podcast, coming to you from BullsPodcast.com. This is where we bring you the latest news, reviews, rants, rumors and opinions on the players, coaches and front office of the Chicago Bulls.
We’d like to welcome all the new listeners to the show, perhaps you’ve been watching the Chicago Bears since the Summer and suddenly find yourself without a team. We are glad you came over to the Bulls side of sports and we promise you that you’ll not have to experience the agony of a last second playoff loss with the Bulls, or any playoffs for that matter!

Cameron Payne is no longer a Chicago Bull.
Last Thursday the Bulls finally waived Cameron Payne, affectionately known on this show as “the Tank Commander”. He’s since been picked up by Cleveland on a 10 day contract. This may be his last shot at playing in the NBA. Payne scored 10 points in 22 minutes off the bench in his debut with the team on Tuesday.
Payne was traded to the Bulls from OKC along with Anthony Morrow and Joffrey Lauvergne, in exchange for Doug McDermott and Taj Gibson, who the Thunder thought would pair well with Carmelo Anthony to compete against Golden State. Obviously this trade didn’t work out well for either of the teams.
Payne was the 14th pick in the 2015 NBA draft and averages  5.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 144 games played. For the Bulls his best game was this season on October 24, 2018, Payne scored all of his career-high 21 points in the second half of the Bulls’ 112–110 win over the Charlotte Hornets, going 7 for 11 on 3-pointers.
This departure means that the Brazilian Marshmallow, Cristiano Felicio has been promoted to the new Chicago Bulls Tank Commander. We know he will serve us well in that capacity, just as we expect him to.
Bulls get Michael Carter-Williams from Houston and Immediately waive him.
The Houston Rockets agreed to trade guard Michael Carter-Williams and cash to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for a protected second-round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft on Monday.
In corresponding roster moves, Carter-Williams and MarShon Brooks were waived by the Bulls.
The Rockets made the deal to avoid Carter-Williams’ contract guarantee for the season. Houston would have had to guarantee the remaining money on his deal at 5 p.m. ET Monday.
Carter-Williams averaged 4.3 points and 1.3 assists in 16 games with the Rockets. He began the season as part of the rotation but has sat 13 of the past 14 games.
It’s highly unlikely the draft pick will convey since it is heavily protected, according to Wojnarowski. The deal was likely structured to be a straight cash dump on the Rockets’ part. The Bulls get cash considerations for taking on a cap hit while never actually paying out any money, while the Rockets avoid having Carter-Williams’ number added to their tax.
Memphis suffers a blow that makes them reconsider their recent trade of Wayne Selden.
Last week we broke the news that Justin Holiday was going to Memphis in a trade that brought Marshon Brooks and Wayne Selden to the Bulls. Since the trade, Holiday has gone 1 for 10 in a Grizzlies jersey, but more significant is the injury to Dillon Brooks who will now be out for the season. This would put Selden in the starting role for Memphis,

Bulls Trade Justin Holiday to Memphis for MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden
The Bulls traded away Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies for two shooting guards, MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden. Both players are on 1 year deals, so we aren’t stuck with them for any duration of time. We also get two 2nd round picks from Memphis, which is pretty much two G-League guys for the Windy City Bulls.
Holiday is currently operating on an expiring contract worth $4.38 million this season, whereas Brooks and Selden combine to make just north of $3 million total. While there could be some value in the future with a player like Selden, Chicago is likely targeting the picks as assets to build with moving forward and Holiday profiles as a potential two-way threat for a team in the Grizzlies angling for a playoff run.

MarShon Brooks is a 6′ 5″, 200 lbs shooting guard out of Providence. He’s 29 years old and a 4 year NBA vet. This season he’s averaged 6.6 PPG, 0.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds. He’s a career 8 PPG player.
Wayne Selden is a 6′ 5″, 230 lbs shooting guard out of Kansas. He’s 24 years old and a 2 year NBA veteran. This season he’s at 5.4 PPG, 1.1 assists, 1.4 rebounds and has a 7 point career average.
What kind of impact will these players have for the Bulls?
 
Should the Bulls be making any more trades?
With all the talk of taking on other team’s long-term bad deals, is it even worth considering trading guys on our team to take on the problems of others?
Marcus: I say we should just keep what we have left, get a fat bank account for next year and sign whoever we can in free agency. With Robin Lopez, Jabari Parker, Cam Payne, and Bobby Portis all with expiring deals, the only thing I would trade for at all would be first round draft picks. There are no players out there short of Klay Thompson or Anthony Davis that are worth picking up in a trade scenario.
 
Game Recaps:
This past week we had 3 games. One of them was a win, the Raptors game was close, and the Orlando game was a complete disaster.
Bulls vs Wizards: Bulls WIN 108-92
Wendell Carter Jr had 17 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
Bulls vs Raptors: Bulls LOST 95-89
Bulls vs Magic: Bulls LOST 112-84
The last 3 games was a good indicator of where the Chicago Bulls are as a collective unit.
While they haven’t had their core four (Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Wendell Carter, Jr.) on the court together much this season, a deeper look into the numbers suggests it may not matter. The Bulls currently rank last in total points per game, 28th in free throws attempted, 27th in field goal percentage, and 25th in three-point field goal percentage.
They’re also attempting the second-fewest three-pointers in the league. The Bulls are also 27th in 2-point field goals attempted. So to recap, they’re not getting to the free throw line, they’re not shooting many three-pointers, nor are they shooting many two-pointers.
It looks like Jim Boylen wants to play more of a grind it out type of basketball. This worked well in the 1990s for the Pistons and Knicks,

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Minnesota Timberwolves
The Chicago Bulls LOST to the Timberwolves by 25 points – Timberwolves 119, Bulls 94.
Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Luol Deng and Thibs returned to the UC to cheers and fond reminders to the fans on how good we used to have it. At one point in the game with Rose on the free throw line, the UC erupted with M-V-P chants, bringing a visible smile to Derrick’s face.
In his post-game interview, Derrick said “I had to crack a smile a little bit. It made me reminisce about some of the old days. With the year that I’m having, it was very special to come in here and play. He also alluded to the fact that the future is never set in stone, and the possibility of him returning to Chicago is always in the cards in the future, at least in his mind.
As for the Bulls performance, Zach Lavine led all scorers with 28 points in 26 minutes.
Jabari Parker has recovered from his “illness” but was once again benched due to coach’s decision. It’s unlikely that we will ever see Jabari play in a Bulls uniform again.
In terms of Minnesota, Derrick Rose had 24 points in 38 minutes. KAT poured in 20 points and 20 rebounds in 24 minutes. Wiggins had 14, Taj had 16.
This coming week we have games against Washington, Toronto and Orlando. The Toronto game should be a bloodbath. The only game we have a real chance at would be Orlando, which it feels like we’re playing Orlando every other day lately. I’m kind of sick of seeing them.
Bulls Injury Updates:
Though Zach Lavine has made a comeback, he did look to be visibly limping throughout portions of the Minnesota game. We’ve heard no progress in terms of Bobby Portis and his ankle injury. Hopefully Bobby can come back soon and finish the second half of the season in strong form, netting him a fat contract with the Bulls so he can stay here and be productive with the Bulls.

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Brooklyn Nets

The Chicago Bulls LOST to the Brooklyn Nets – 96 to 93. With over 25 lead changes, this was a back and forth game with a lot of heart shown by Kris Dunn and the insurgence of Shaq Harrison, who showed a ton of hustle. Wendell Carter Jr displayed a preview of his future role as a star with several blocks and monstrous dunks. At about 2 minutes left in the 4th, we could see Bobby Portis limping into the locker room. Hopefully for Bobby’s sake, this is just a turned ankle and not anything to do with his previously injured knee. The game ended with a controversial call on Kris Dunn combined with some sloppy ball handling leading to a turnover that helped the Nets pull out the win, sealed by 2 free throws from former Bull Spencer Dinwiddie.
Bulls Injury Updates:
As we alluded to before, Zach Lavine will be out for another 2-4 weeks after he sprained his ankle vs Orlando while the Bulls were in Mexico City.  With Zach Lavine out of the lineup, it’s up to the rest of the guys to step up and take charge. Luckily no one else on the club is hurt, with the exception of Denzel Valentine, who is recovering from his own ankle injury and surgery.

STATE OF THE BULLS
It’s been a few weeks since we were able to get together to do a show, and what a few weeks it’s been! Fred Hoiberg is out and Asst. Coach Jim Boylen has assumed the reins of head coaching duty.
We all know about the drama that ensued since Boylen has assumed control and it showed a lot about this Bulls team and just how SOFT they really are. I know they are professionals, but trying to boycott practice and declare a mutiny is not a good showing in a city like Chicago that is filled with HARD WORKING people that are known for their perseverance and toughness. This is the kind of stunt that we’ve never seen in Chicago at this scale and it’s time to take a long hard look at this roster to see what we can do to get some winners to play for the Bulls. If you’re going to have the worst team in the league, don’t complain about how hard you work. Don’t proclaim how entitled you are as a player when you can’t even win but 25% of your games. I get that some guys were injured, but that’s absolutely no excuse for how the players are acting.
While it’s probably true that Fred Hoiberg was a “soft” coach, that’s not the kind of team we want or deserve as Chicago Bulls Fans. I would not mind if we kept Lauri,

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Phoenix
The Bulls took on Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns in a Wednesday night matchup. The Bulls WON the game with the score of 124-116.

Zach Lavine led all scorers with 29 points. He’s on a run to get that Most Improved Player award, and it looks like it’s his for the taking. Jabari Parker played a pretty decent game with 20 pts, 13 Rebounds and 8 assists, almost getting him into Triple Double territory.
All in all, a good win for the Bulls who have been on a losing streak lately. Most notable was the presence of DeAndre Ayton, who looks like he’ll grow into a very dominant center in the league after a few years of experience.
Bulls Injury Updates:
It was announced that Denzel Valentine will be out the rest of the season after he gets surgery later next week. He has been scheduled for a full ankle restoration surgery, which Denzel indicated is going to be just what the doctor ordered. He said he’s had ankle issues ever since entering the league, and it will be great to be 100% in the ankle department when he returns next season.
Hopefully Denzel heals up quick and can be back to playing form for the season opener.
Chandler Hutchison missed the Phoenix game due to back spasms, but it looks to be short-term and nothing that will keep him out of any games.
We’ve also got news that both Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn have been working out and hitting non-contact portions of practice. It looks like it will be another 2 weeks or so for both of them. There are rumblings that Lauri will be playing with the Windy City Bulls G-League team by late next week to get ready to make his comeback.
We’ll be lucky if Bobby Portis comes back by Christmas, as his injury has not healed as fast as Dunn’s has. I feel bad for Bobby, as it’s a contract year for him and this will mean he’s going to work much harder to get a good deal for next season, which is when you run a huge risk to re-injure yourself, or play in a reserved way so that you don’t injure yourself again. Either way, Bobby has a long uphill climb ahead of him.

Roundtable Discussion
TANK TIME?
So is it time to tank? I think Gar/Pax have probably been watching Duke basketball, as I have all season so far. In my opinion it’s time to submarine this team and hit the tank button. Once again we are in a post-season fight with the Cavs, but this time it’s to see who can suck the most and get the coveted #1 pick to grab RJ or Zio…
