I’ve been meaning to get to this for a while, but it’s been fairly busy here. The Bulls won’t get two days off in until next week. It would be nearly a full month of games in which they either play every other day, or back-to-back. And we’re seeing the effects.
Poor shooting, dead legs and sloppy play is plaguing the Bulls. Last week, they lose to the Jazz. That game, they couldn’t throw the damn ball into the ocean. Then, they go to Washington and lose again. But what pissed me the most is the fact that Jimmy Butler is still playing 40-something minutes each damn game. And with the loss against the Jazz, the game was over at halftime. Yet, with five minutes to go in the game and the Bulls down 25, ThomASS still has the starters playing. Are you fucking kidding me?
With a month straight without two full days off, any smart coach would do whatever they can to make sure that players are rested and ready. No player on that team should play more than 38 minutes each game. And some should even take nights off. Ultimately, the playoffs are what matter.
Oh, Joakim Noah is hurt again. He’s still playing but his knees are starting to wear down. That’s what happens when you have surgery because your dumbass head coach ran you into the ground.
Same shit. Different year. And for the record, I’ve been right, for the most part, all of these years. I said the Bulls would be ousted in the first or second round. The same will happen this season, regardless of how healthy Rose is.
