Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys kick off the show by discussing the Bulls five-game west coast road trip that starts Wednesday night in Portland. The guys talk about what they expect from the Bulls, whether they’ll see LeBron James or not, and not letting Klay Thompson have another historic night.
Just how bad have the Bulls been at shooting threes compared to the rest of the teams around the league? Jordan Maly pulls the analytics for this Bulls team since Jim Boylen took over and the results are not that surprising. Boylen told the press this week that “…other teams are going to play that style, that’s not what we’re going to do right now” in reference to a question about the Nets shooting 46 three-pointers to the Bulls 18 on Sunday.
The rest of the episode is dedicated to the Locked On Bulls listeners, Jordan and Matt answer Bulls fans questions and voicemails in their weekly mailbag episode. You can interact with the show by texting or calling (331)-979-1369.
Are the guys worried about Duke’s Zion Williamson and his ability to play the wing position in the NBA? “Absolutely not, even if he’s playing all his minutes at the four in college I don’t care. You draft a player like Zion for his transcendent talent and figure it out later” Jordan Maly says. The guys talk about Zion’s incredible year already at Duke and when the last time there was such a consensus on the No. 1 prospect this early.
Some of the other topics on the show include which Eastern Conference teams are the ones to be worried about for the next five years, caller compares the Knicks and Bulls as landing spots for top free agents including Kevin Durant, and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
