Bulls Beat #377 – Tank on

Without Kris Dunn, the Bulls have gone 0-3 and are likely to pile up more losses going forward.   Zach LaVine has played poorly, and Niko Mirotic will likely be gone soon things could remain ugly the rest of the year.   Check out the Bulls Beat on Itunes or via RSS: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BullsBeatPodcastsChicagoBullseye

BullsHQ Ep. 19: Is The Tank Dead?

Host Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) takes a look at the upcoming schedule for the Bulls and how that may play a part in the tanking effort, and if Mirotic still being on the team up until the trade deadline will cost the Bulls a great opportunity to improve their draft pick.

Later on the show, Fred Pfeiffer (@cbefred) stops by to discuss the status of the Big Red Bus.

Bulls Beat #376 – No Defense

LaVine’s defense slows the Bulls against the Warriors.  Kris Dunn is in the concussion protocol, and the Bulls may have changed their minds about what to do with their cap room.   Also, just as a heads up, I realize the audio quality of the show is not where it needs to be.  I’m hoping to get some new equipment in the next couple weeks to help out with that.   Also, correction, it was Brian Windhurst not Adrian Wojarnowski reporting the Bulls may use cap room to take on salary in exchange for picks.
