The Appropriate Fear

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,
