Did you really think Jimmy Butler was going to lead them to the promised land?

Dude they got literally nothing in return for Jimmy Butler. They couldn't have fucked it up more if they tried.

No. Worst case scenario I prefer watching 40 win teams to 20 win teams. I know you just ignore your favorite teams when they're bad but not all of us do that

They weren't gonna get anything great for him anyway. The Bulls aren't truly going to compete until LBJ is 40. None of it matters.

They weren't winning shit with Butler in the next 2 years.

And they didn't want to sign him to a max deal after his 2 years on his contract were up. This is the best value they could have gotten. It would have been less at the trade deadline. And even less next offseason.

So I get it. I'm fine with it. Even though I don't know the players. I get the thinking.

They got 3 young guys to build around. Wade and Rondo come off the books after next year so they'll have money to spend. Hopefully they can land a good free agent.

I wouldn't have traded him but the trade was ok enough on its own. Drafting the buster from arizona is what made it a truly awful trade.

They gave up their own first rounder! That is seriously the dumbest shit imaginable.

I have watched very little of the kid, what makes you think he is a buster?

Have you seen him play? He looks incredibly overmatched and that's not even against pros. I'm willing to wager anything he doesn't make an all star team ever.

Very little. Just curious what you were thinking.

I was hoping for Monk or Dennis Smith

I was watching the Yahoo draft show and all 3 guys said that's who the Bulls should take. For whatever that's worth.

I was hoping for Monk also.

Also now no more excuses. Time to see if Hoiberg can actually coach.

Fred Hoiberg is a luxury because he knows the secret to coaching a wide open offense with a couple athletes and a plethora of shooters... or in other words, the same offense every team in the NBA now runs.

He does look like a pick and pop guy for sure so we'll see. What's up with the rest of his game? I wanted Zach Collins or Malik Monk.

Yeah people are still enamored by tall skinny white guys who can shoot but can't do anything else. I don't get it. Anyone thinking this is the next Dirk or Porzingis is a moron.

If Butler's knees are shot this is an okay trade.

I know none of us really know anything right now, but I am really struggling to envision how Markkanen can succeed in the NBA. Big guys who can't play defense and can't rebound aren't very useful, even if they can shoot. Best case scenario we just drafted Channing Frye with the 7th overall pick. Fucking horrible
