Bulls long-term health is priority number one for rebuilding

Bulls long-term health is priority number one for rebuilding - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys are back to preview tonight’s matchup against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. The guys talk about the Bulls potentially shutting Zach LaVine down for the rest of the season with a patellar tendon strain and they also take some mailbag questions from Bulls fans.

The guys talk about the turmoil going on with the Lakers as they head to Chicago tonight for their final matchup of the season. The Lakers will be without Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, how will the Bulls fare against LeBron James amidst one the worst stretches of their season? The Bulls are officially eliminated from the playoffs with a loss tonight and without Zach LaVine the guys talk about the opportunity for Kris Dunn that could unfold or the rest of the season. Is this merely to increase his value or to regain a role with this team?

The guys also discuss the importance of keeping Zach LaVine healthy and why the idea of holding him out for the remainder of the season might be a good one. The guys take a look at the remainder of the schedule as well as the lottery standings to determine how LaVine’s absence could impact the race to the top-3 slots as well. Locked On Bulls circles back to the main point about not risking long term health concerns for meaningless games down the stretch.

The guys spend the rest of the episode taking your questions and voicemails from on their weekly mailbag episode, you can interact with the show at (331)-979-1369. The guys are asked about basketball reasons for why they would avoid signing Derrick Rose this summer, whether or not Kris Dunn is in need of a mentor to help reshape his career trajectory, compare and contrast Wayne Selden and David Nwaba, and who has had the biggest drop off from their near MVP caliber seasons: Dwight Howard or Carmelo Anthony? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

    This website certainly has all of the information and facts I wanted concerning this subject and didn’t know
    who to ask.

    First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks!

    Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established website
    such as yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand new to writing a blog
    but I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
    new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was
    a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get advice from other
    knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    I believe everything posted made a bunch of sense.
    But, think on this, suppose you were to write
    a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell
    you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Bulls
    long-term health is priority number one for rebuilding
    is kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create
    post titles to get people to click. You might add a related video or
    a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

The guys highlight quickly JaKarr Sampson’s first game in a Bulls uniform, Robin Lopez having a near career night on his birthday, and some discussion about the Knicks young center Mitchell Robinson.

The guys move on to looking around the NBA as the season winds down and the playoffs rapidly approach. Looking at the Eastern Conference first, which matchups seem like they could be the most intriguing in the first round? Who will make it out of the Nets, Pistons, Heat, and Magic for the last three spots? Is Kemba Walker’s time in Charlotte all but over and where are some likely free agent destinations for him? The guys circle around to the Western Conference where they talk about each matchup being equally as competitive in the first round.

The guys have a discussion on some of the teams who just missed out on the playoffs including the Sacramento Kings and how that relates to the Bulls plans next season. The guys talk about rookie Marvin Bagley III and how the Kings have managed his season this year. Why is it important to the Bulls? The guys will tell you. They also get into a conversation about Wendell Carter Jr.’s potential in year two and some of the possibilities we might see from him with the additions of a healthy Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., and summer moves this off-season.

The guys kick off the episode talking about the Bulls recent signings of Walt Lemon Jr. and JaKarr Sampson to help close out the season. The guys discuss Lemon’s first game against the Raptors on Saturday and what Sampson can bring in the final few games. The guys wonder if the signings come out of basic necessity, are good faith measures for good seasons in the G-League, or something else?

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.
