Bulls Beat #385 – 6th it is

Bulls Beat #384 – Race for 6th

The Bulls are still in the running for 6th or better in the draft.  I discuss how they can get there.   I also discuss the perils of bidding early in free agency given the lack of money available and hope they wait to make offers to LaVine and Nwaba.

Bulls Beat #383 – Picks, Injuries, and Off season moves

I give the Bulls pick update as well as discuss the recent Bulls injuries and whether or not we are watching fool’s gold play out in front of us or whether these guys have legitimate value in the league.

Bulls Beat #382 – Bulls warned

The NBA shows it cares more about perception than reality with warning of the Bulls for tanking.  I discuss this, free agency, and the current Bulls draft pick status...

Bulls Beat #381 – Tanking is overrated

I discuss why even though it would be great to have a better pick, it’s even better that the Bulls simply have more talent.  Rate the front office and discuss the wildly under appreciated Bobby Portis.

Tanks for nothing Orlando

The Orlando Magic out tank the Bulls, a trend likely to continue into the future without a mandate from management to bench some players.  I discuss this and the Bulls 2019 future FA targets.

Bulls Beat #379 – Deadline dud?

The Chicago Bulls made just minor moves at the deadline and kept Robin Lopez which puts the tank in jeopardy.  I also discuss Zach LaVine’s tremendous game against the Timberwolves and how I see the rest of the season playing out.
 

Bulls Beat #378 – So Long and Thanks for all the 3s

The Bulls have traded Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans, I break down the trades, the Bulls tanking position, future trade possibilities, and Zach LaVine’s contract extension.

Bulls Beat #377 – Tank on

Without Kris Dunn, the Bulls have gone 0-3 and are likely to pile up more losses going forward.   Zach LaVine has played poorly, and Niko Mirotic will likely be gone soon things could remain ugly the rest of the year.   Check out the Bulls Beat on Itunes or via RSS: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BullsBeatPodcastsChicagoBullseye

Bulls Beat #376 – No Defense

LaVine’s defense slows the Bulls against the Warriors.  Kris Dunn is in the concussion protocol, and the Bulls may have changed their minds about what to do with their cap room.   Also, just as a heads up, I realize the audio quality of the show is not where it needs to be.  I’m hoping to get some new equipment in the next couple weeks to help out with that.   Also, correction, it was Brian Windhurst not Adrian Wojarnowski reporting the Bulls may use cap room to take on salary in exchange for picks.

Bulls Beat #375 – Return of LaVine

I discuss the return of Zack LaVine, whether the Bulls should start aiming for the playoffs, and readjust my evaluation of Lauri and Dunn’s ceilings.
