This Bulls team isn't just good. They are kind of a complete squad. They can match up well with a bunch of different styles of opponent, especially when White gets back.
They are a perfect example of what I preach about chemistry. You either have it naturally, as the Bulls do, or you struggle with a lack of it. Lonzo, DeRozan, and LaVine play off each other so naturally.This Bulls team isn't just good. They are kind of a complete squad.

It's a small sample size but he already has just as many blocks and steals as last year.Since we're looking at small sample size stats, his DRating (per NBA.com) is the worst of any of the regulars (excepting Siakam who's only played 3 games). So maybe he's still not a good defender.
Yeah that's a really interesting roster, you've got a core of 4 guys who've been through it all together, a couple new vets, Wiggins and Poole, and that platoon of high upside guys on the bench. That's not a mix you see often.GSW just demolishing the Nets is bringing me immense joy.
GSW has a really stacked roster with good role players they developed and a platoon of recent 1st rounders.
Curry's shot chart is so freaking insanely efficientWarriors enter the 4th Q down 81-68 ... put up a 36-8 quarter to win 104-89.
Steph scores 20 of his 40 points in the 4th, ends up with (ho hum) nine threes for the the 38th time in his career.
Yeah … as fun as last night’s comeback was, the downside was it forced Steph to play an extra 5-10 minutes in the 4th quarter that he wouldn’t have had to if they had not played with their food for three quarters against a badly-depleted Cavs team (no Mobley, Allen, Markkanen, or Sexton). He came into the game questionable with a hip contusion from a collision with Harden, too.Only thing stopping the dubs this season is Steph's health/durability. Can he do this for another 6 months.
Caruso could have an amazing YouTube channel of him just going into inner city courts and playing people, like the Professor but with hops.
It’s absolutely confounding that they let Caruso walk, especially when he gave them every opportunity to match his Chicago offer. I know they had salary cap issues, but he’s the perfect rotational guard for a Lebron team.I'll say it... the Lakers miss Caruso. LA's defense is a hot mess. It's not that they don't try very hard on that end, it's just old, very slow and bad
and wouldn't be shocked if the Bulls take calls on Coby White at the trade deadline/this summer

Wasn't Caruso the one introducing himself to Lebron as they walked off the court after a blowout, back when Caruso was just a balding guy nobody had heard of? Maybe LBJ never forgave that little dig.Agreed
a classic example of analyzing NBA talent in a VACUUM vs FIT
Nothing happens in La La Land without Bron's sign-off, very surprised he'd let a willing minion waltz off
maybe Caruso was just a daily reminder of his own male pattern baldness?Wasn't Caruso the one introducing himself to Lebron as they walked off the court after a blowout, back when Caruso was just a balding guy nobody had heard of? Maybe LBJ never forgave that little dig.
That was a Ringer (I think) gag and it was plausible enough to make it hilarious.Wasn't Caruso the one introducing himself to Lebron as they walked off the court after a blowout, back when Caruso was just a balding guy nobody had heard of? Maybe LBJ never forgave that little dig.
Well it was kinda ridiculous that Melo was out of the league for so long so that’s a bad example. Westbrook was pretty good last year so it wasn’t the talent for me but rather the fit in a walk it up offense with LeBron and AD that it made no sense.Superstar NBA players typically have a tremendous amount of respect for fellow star players, and that respect strengthens as they both age out of their primes. Remember how other older stars were speaking out on how they couldn't believe Carmelo wasn't on an NBA team? These guys will almost always overrate the skills of their contemporaries, and it's unsurprising that LeBron would see former MVP Russell Westbrook as a superior option over Buddy Hield, or Caruso + other needed role players.
Bones Hyland and Ayo Dosunmu both look real good out of the gate. Cade’s first few games can be thrown out…..those were his training camp days. He looks real good…..just a super all-around player with high IQ. Once he figures out the speed of the game and how to best utilize his ability to create angles he’ll be a great building block for the Pistons.Cade's last 6: 33.3 mpg, .442/.348/.875, 16.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks. His overall numbers are still terrible but he had a rough first 4 games.
Is anyone emerging as a steal in this draft outside the lottery? I know it's early but there's usually someone showing signs of life. Only guys getting any real minutes to date went in the lottery or soon after outside of Herb Jones and Robinson Earl.
I watched this 1H. Every player on the Lakers we’re watching the Piston runs circles around them either with the ball or with the pass. You would think Luke Walton was coaching this team and would be fired in the morning if you didn’t know any better.Detroit just dropped 42 on the Lakers in the 2nd quarter, at home. They were up 47-40, then down 56-53 with 2:49 left. They finished the quarter on a 15-5 run. They scored 15 points in under 3 minutes. 2:48 to be exact. The Lakers were saved with a 3 pointer by Dwight Howard with 2 seconds left.
