View Full Version : CHICAGO BULLS: The team to watch for taking over from GSW in the seasons to follow...

The Chicago Bulls have hit gold by drafting W.Carter jr. and even more so by drafting CHANDLER HUTCHINSON at N.22 of the drafts...

Carter is starting already and Huchinson had one start, but continusly has more minutes than the player he replaces and both the rookies are extremely effective this early in the season, but extremely promissing potential too.

With L.Markanen coming back and Z.Lavine having a solid performance, the Bulls seem to have one of the most talented and young cores in the league, but also have healthy financials and very good roster depth in all positions, as well as the historic background and the experience as to soon be competitors.

The only missing piece at the moment, seems to be a TOP-5 AllStar that will complete the picture and along with the young core's further development, will turn the team to a fearful weapon for many years to come.

I believe that the Bulls will be after landing KD out of free agency next off season and will succeed to add him in their roster...

All in all, watch the Bulls... they will make it to the playoffs this season and will be the team I would put my money on, for the seasons to come.

EDIT: Chandler Huchinson was my 1st choice for my Bucks to have... Athough Donte Divichenzo seems to be an excellent choice for the Bucks, I still believe that Chandler was the REAL STEAL out of this season's drafts...

As a Bulls fan..... :laugh2:

The Bulls aren't attracting any big name free agent. Bank on that. Never have, never will. Not with this current administration. They could only attract the Carlos Boozer's and Pau Gasol's past their prime...and that was with a pre injured Rose on the roster.

They do have some nice pieces in LaVine, Lauri, Carter, and Hutch is a nice player but none of those guys will carry a franchise. Their best bet is to land a top 3-5 pick this year and hope they turn into that type of player.

Why is that though? They have a championship type pedigree and Chicagoís a top 3 city if not the best city for young adults in the country.

Itís still affordabl, has great restaurants, culture and hot looking girls. Not sure why a top free agent wouldnít want to come to Chicago

You Chicago fans, you are obviously tired in anticipation, while waiting for the next Jordan/Pippen roster that left the world in awe so many decades ago... and Ok, letting Nikola go instead of Portis, was a huge mistake of your FO... but for you judging the roster you have on your hands wrong, is simply stupid...

You simply underestimate the talent you have there and your anticipation, makes you blind to see what is right in front your eyes... Don't rush yourselves guys as to expect from rookies to perform like AllStars... In10 more games when these rookies will have you standing in AWE, after they beat teams you never thought you would be able to at this stage... You'll then suddenly change your mind... it will come to you right... just wait and see...

...and yes, KD will join you... he will, because he can see what you at the moment don't and because he wants more titles that he won't share with Curry or other, but will appreciated as being ALL his...

If by championship pedigree you mean were fortunate enough to have Jordan for a while, then sure. But nothing before or since.

Jerry reinsdorf and gar Forman are the main reasons they wonít get a big name free agent. Chicagoís also a cold weather city which most players donít like....weíre also a massively overrated city with major budget problems, high taxes, and corruption all over the place. A lot of people are leaving. Besides good food, decent night life, and the lake/beach you could only enjoy 2, maybe 3 months out of the year, thereís not much else to offer. The museums are nice but overrated and not really a selling point and not very unique. Easily one of, if not the most overrated city in the country.

Other than the Bulls having drafted extremely well for the last two seasons on Markanen, Carter and Hutchinson, they also have the roster depth to support a Top level starting roster and the financials to sign not one, but two AllStars on supermax contracts by next summer.

The Bulls have also planned the timing perfect, so that they can be on a playoff run this season and have all three out of their extremely talented assets, performing near their peak by next season and at their full peak by next season's playoffs.

They won't only target to sign KD for next season, but they'll be after Kemba Walker too...

KD will want to sign with the Bulls, because he knows better than some of the nonesense posted by basketball ignorants and some trolls here...

KD and any other TOP-5 player, would prefer a title where he will be the center and the leading part of the picture, than to share another title with Curry...

In addition, KD knows that a Bulls roster of Kemba, Hutchinson, KD, Markanen and Carter would beat GSW without him by nexrt season's playoffs and has the potential to last for many seasons to follow, which will make him excell and last for ever in NBA history after retirement...

Same to a lesser extend applies for Kemba, which then resembles the Jordan/Pippen thrillic duet that the Bulls will be forever remembered for, so much more if they can repeat it... which they will!

You seem to be a total ignorant out of the Bulls situation and more so if you post a reply, without (obviously) having watched any of their games...

The Bulls are without Markanen and with a new coach and team tactics that they still adapt on... They will miss Markanen for another five games... yet they are after each and every game, despite how good the opponent is and lost most games in details, while they gave both their rookies playing time that only starters can have...
The Bulls will make the playoffs this season and will be a "tough one" for their opponent, whoever that is...

I've seen a few Bulls games, I'd just have to say you're delusional. If you think a rehabbing Markkanen is enough to take the team with a (predictable) 26th ranked SRS and -7.8 win differential to the playoffs, God help you buddy. And this is before their guys have even gone down. Which, rest assure, with that roster they will have multiple players go down. And I'm sure that will be your scapegoat when they finish the season with 29 wins (a total that would outdue their preseason predicted win total mind you).

The Bulls will finish the season with 40+ wins and make it too the playoffs... They will accelerate after Markannen is back and as their rookies mature fast their development.

40 wins will be more than enough for a team to make it in the Eastern playoffs and the Bulls will be doing at least that much...

The best rookies out of all the NBA? Wtf are you talking about lol? So you have Carter over Doncic and Ayton? Markannan over Tatum, Mitchell and now Fox (who is clearly a star in the making and producing at a higher level than Markannen has reached)? Hutchinson is averaging 5 and 3 on weak efficiency in 20 mpg. Meaning, this is a player they're relying on. A team relying on a bunch of unproven rookies and sophomores is not a team to fear.

KD isn't going to sign with the Bulls. You're not wrong that the Bulls would be a really good team with Durant plus another star player, but do you honestly think that he couldn't find an even better situation? The Lakers already have Lebron and can outright sign him next summer. Lebron/KD duo is already better than anything the Bulls could do with Durant. The Lakers could also use their young pieces and acquire either AD or Dame in the next year or two if they force their way out.

Even if you staunchly believe Durant "wants to win by himself" I would argue that there are better teams than Chicago to do that with. Denver or Utah would easily be better, and even Sacramento has Fox/Bagley. Long story short is that there will be better opportunities than the Bulls for Durant, or any top level free agent, to win on the court.

And to be fair to Bulls fans (who really don't deserve the criticism given that this was posted by a non-Bulls fan), there is some good young talent on that team worth getting excited about. But in today's NBA, you almost have to have at least two superstar, top 20 talents to even be in the conversation of "contender," and it remains to be seen that they even have one guy capable of reaching that caliber of talent. They're just so far from being in that conversation that the very notion of his thread is as absurd as it gets...

First off, you must be the first person in the history of the English language to refer to it as the "end laugh." It's the "last laugh," chief. Butchering it once is fine, but butchering it literally every single time you use the phrase is a little ridiculous.

Secondly, basketball knowledge has nothing to do with it. It's a matter of common sense. You couldn't find another poster in all of PSD or another legitimate NBA fan outside of Chicago who agrees with this take. If you had simply started a thread with the premise of "Hey, this Chicago team has some pretty solid young players. They could have a bright future." Yeah, I'd buy that. That's a reasonable premise we could debate, and a lot of people would agree with you.

But "a Chicago Bulls team with one of the least talented rosters in the NBA is going to make the playoffs, nab Durant and then challenge the Warriors as the next dominant team in the league..." That's not a logical conclusion right now. You're so far in the minority that if we compared the percent of NBA fans who agreed with your take with the percentage of Libertarian and Green Party candidates who will receive votes in the midterm elections tomorrow, the Libertarians and Green Party folks would get a much, much higher percentage. Your take isn't even "third party candidate" bad; it's "write-in candidate" bad...

But "a Chicago Bulls team with one of the least talented rosters in the NBA is going to make the playoffs, nab Durant and then challenge the Warriors as the next dominant team in the league..." That's not a logical conclusion right now. You're so far in the minority that if we compared the percent of NBA fans who agreed with your take with the percentage of Libertarian and Green Party candidates who will receive votes in the midterm elections tomorrow, the Libertarians and Green Party folks would get a much, much higher percentage.

KD isn't going to sign with the Bulls. You're not wrong that the Bulls would be a really good team with Durant plus another star player, but do you honestly think that he couldn't find an even better situation? The Lakers already have Lebron and can outright sign him next summer. Lebron/KD duo is already better than anything the Bulls could do with Durant. The Lakers could also use their young pieces and acquire either AD or Dame in the next year or two if they force their way out.

Even if you staunchly believe Durant "wants to win by himself" I would argue that there are better teams than Chicago to do that with. Denver or Utah would easily be better, and even Sacramento has Fox/Bagley. Long story short is that there will be better opportunities than the Bulls for Durant, or any top level free agent, to win on the court.


First off, you must be the first person in the history of the English language to refer to it as the "end laugh." It's the "last laugh," chief. Butchering it once is fine, but butchering it literally every single time you use the phrase is a little ridiculous.

Secondly, basketball knowledge has nothing to do with it. It's a matter of common sense.

If by championship pedigree you mean were fortunate enough to have Jordan for a while, then sure. But nothing before or since.

Jerry reinsdorf and gar Forman are the main reasons they wonít get a big name free agent. Chicagoís also a cold weather city which most players donít like....weíre also a massively overrated city with major budget problems, high taxes, and corruption all over the place. A lot of people are leaving. Besides good food, decent night life, and the lake/beach you could only enjoy 2, maybe 3 months out of the year, thereís not much else to offer. The museums are nice but overrated and not really a selling point and not very unique. Easily one of, if not the most overrated city in the country.

Hmm. It gets cold as ****. Facts

But whenever I went there in my 20s I had a helluva time, and this is after living in San Francisco and Los Angeles. I seriously considered moving there and still do.

The real estate market is reasonable, bar and restaurant scene is fun and the people there still have mid western values. Maybe those arenít things multi millionaire 20 somethings value anymore, but for me I give Chicago a 9.5

Can you explain a bit why you think people are leaving and that itís overrated? I could only discern 2 flat out negatives from your post: the government, which doesnít really affect me, and the weather. Thanks

Lebron would surely make the Bulls better than the Lakers would ever be since the Bulls have a much better and with more potential roster, but I don't think that the Bulls would ever consider a top player in his sunset... They would rather invest on a Jordan/Pippen repeat...

Either KD or Thompson, leaves GSW next off season... In NBA you can't have a team over the luxury tax for more than 4 seasons, or the tax gets multiplied and becomes enormous...

IMO, it will be KD for two reasons:

1. The Warriors will not want to let their core that is with the team from scratch break... They would rather try to develop a young talent as to have instead of KD.

2. KD will not want to be under the shadow of nobody as to move forward... He will not want to share another title with Carry after having 3 with him...

The Bulls seem to be the perfect place for him, because they both have the money to pay him and the talented roster that will last for years and can help him to win immediately.

EDIT: But the Bulls also have the history and prestige needed...

This is the first year the Warriors will pay the repeater tax. They can re-sign everyone and afford it.

1 and 2 appears to be gibberish.

the Bulls are not good now and are not ready to be good in the near future, their culture is not what KD said he wants and KD doesn't want to play with players like Lavine who are high volume scorers who don't play defense.

Yup right, it's Lauri Markkanen. If you want to be seen as smart and knowing a team spell the name correctly.

Actually it's Antetokounmpo that started it all... He insisted that his passport is as much closer as pronouncing his name right, so that he won't have to correct the spelling as much as it can be with the (poor) English vocabulary and grammar... So... he insisted on Giannis in his passport (instead of Yiannis that all other Greeks are spelled - Pappagiannis comes in mind) and then insisted on Antetokounmpo, instead of Antetokoubo that every spokesman calls him... Laury, will still insist that his name's closest pronouncing in English is, Lawree Makaaneen...
Now... you can go with the majority and call players whatever you like (although some of them think the worst for Americans for keep doing so) ... but it shows no respect to the player... I therefore suggest you call him Laury, which sounds near enough to Lawree which is the closest you can get...

but... that's what I do... I tell you how they are correctly called... only Giannis insisted on the same!

Funny isn't it? Yiannis Papagiannis!!! looool!!! What the F? it's either Yiannis Papayiannis or Giannis Papagiannis!

Why does it matter how itís pronounced when you are spelling it incorrectly, and it seems at this point on purpose because someone caught you incorrectly spelling their name.

A board is written language, so write names with correct spelling not pronunciation.

What is your problem? (that's all my problem is) is it that I called Laury correctly? ...although you understood who I'm talking about? ...and therefore you insist for me to call him wrong because you do, although you understand who the conversation refers to? I recommend doctors examination if you understand a subject, but you choose to divert it, because people have to adapt in the fascist idea that their names can be converted and then all others have to call them wrong for you only to pretend that there is an issue... Sorry if you feel humiliated...

Thatís not how itís spelled. Iím asking that you spell the name correctly. Which shouldnít be hard. Iím not asking you to pronounce it differently. Just spell his name the way he wants it spelled, which is Lauri Markkanen.

I will still call him Laury... and don't give an F if you have a problem with that...

EDIT: Ask him first and then you may have an opinion on how he wants his name spelled or if he ever had a choice (or even asked)... Don't ridicule yourself anymore please... After all, he already has declared in the the league that his name is spelled: Lau-ree Mark-a-neen... He therefore has already said that he doesn't agree with how you spell it...

Is it Ki-el Laowree or Kyle Lowry?

buckalis
11-30-2018, 03:59 PM
it does, because other than "i" having a shorter shorter vocal extension than "y", his surname is written with two "k" which in Finnish has the meaning of extending the vowel that follows, while in English it doesn't... Therefore people end up calling him Lauri Markkanen, which is translating the Finnish spelling in English, but without counting for the Finnish grammar... And it gets annoying if he declares his name in the league as being LAU-REE MARK-A-NEEN, then everybody starts writing his name like if it is English and calls him accordingly, despite his declaration of the correct spelling... While LAU-REE MARK-A-NEEN which he declared, should be spelled Laury Markaaneen as the closest in English...

Oh so it's only foreign players that we need to purposely butcher the spelling on their names. (BTW Kyle is American, would take 2 seconds to look up, not that I needed to as I played against him in HS)

NO... "neen" is closer than "nin" because the pronouncement includes some "e" into the "i" that is closer to sound... it's similar to the word "succeed" that the double "e" sounds... Never the less, the correct spelling in English is Laury Markaaneen and the tone (English has no tones when written) is on the double "aa" that follows, rather than on the first "a"...

Still doesnít change the fact that when you write it or type it, itís Lauri Markkanen.

So they may only finish 25 games under .500, rather than 35 games under? Fantastic.

Actually, if you check, you can see I voted for the Bulls winning the game at Toronto a few hours ago... and they should have... they lost it in details the last minutes...

They do have a fantastic core of players and amazing depth. It's just that I know a lot about basketball, while you are totally clueless... no hard feelings...
