Bulls offense has become historically bad with slower pace - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys kick off the show reminiscing on the Bulls 2018 in its entirety. The ups and downs, the changes, and are the Bulls in a better position now than they were just a year ago? The guys discuss the Bulls surface level improvements since Jim Boylen has taken over but also caution fans to be realistic about these ‘improvements’.

The guys break down the Bulls win in Washington, how the Wizards depleted roster gave the Bulls everything they could handle. The guys highlight Wendell Carter Jr.’s impressive game, his ability to play more than 30-minutes for the first time under Boylen, and why Carter should continue to get 10 or more shots per game. The guys also highlight the effectiveness of Zach LaVine since his return from a sprained ankle.

The Bulls fell to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night without Kyle Lowry, the guys explain what went wrong and some of the lineup choices Boylen has used. Why is Robin Lopez a focal point of the offense when he’s on the floor? The guys discuss the prehistoric offense that has set back some of the younger players. Will Boylen adapt to the NBA’s modern style or continue to push ‘grinding it out’ as an improvement?

To wrap up, Locked On Bulls discusses K.C. Johnson’s interview with Jabari Parker. The guys talk about Parker’s honesty with where he’s at, his disappointment with how things have gone in Chicago, who is to blame, his confusion on his role, and where he sees himself after the trade deadline. The guys talk about fault on both sides and a common theme among a lot of players who have not lived up to expectations of the front office. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

Bulls crawling to the finish line as injuries, losses pile up - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys recap last night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors without Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr., and Kris Dunn. The guys spend the second half of the show taking mailbag questions, texts, tweets, and voicemails in their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag.

Some of the topics include whether the Bulls will look to draft a big man in the second round, some prospects available, would they take the risk on Bol Bol if he slides to the end of the first-early second round, and a scenario of trading up with the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 2 pick.

The guys talk about last night’s game with the idea that LaVine, Porter, and Dunn were out and the Bulls only dressed nine players. Lauri Markkanen only played 16 minutes in the game and left with ‘illness’ in the third quarter. Should the Bulls think about shutting him down for the rest of the season?

The guys talk about the time he did spend on the floor last night and how he was more aggressive but just missing shots. The guys also mention how the Raptors seem to be walking through this game as told by the final score, they mention the final 90 seconds and give props to Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden Jr.

Should the Bulls be looking to draft a backup big man with their recently acquired second-round pick in the upcoming draft? Would you take the risk on NBA prospect Bol Bol if he started to slide to the end of the first round? What would it take to trade up from pick No. 4 to No. 2? All of these voicemails are answered and so much more on today’s episode of Locked On Bulls.
