Chicago Bullseye 419 – Interview with KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune

See Red Fred @cbefred interviews the inimitable KC Johnson @kcjhoop of the Chicago Tribune. The Hemingway of Bulls Beat Writers addresses a variety of topics and questions:

1:30 I thought the handling of Parker during Boylen’s first month was catastrophic for the Bulls. Was Boylen or the Front office the impetus behind that decision?
4:30 What did more damage to the reputation of the Bulls org: The handling of Parker or Boylen’s first week (wind sprints, near mutiny, practice after the Boston loss)?
8:40 What was your reaction to the Otto Porter trade? What has impressed you the most about Otto Porter Jr?
11:45 Is Dunn done? I hear whispers there are off court issues. I think it’s highly suspicious that he had a migraine after the Boston game when he spent the 4th quarter glued to the bench. I feel the Bulls must sign a FA Point guard in the offseason (Rubio-Beverley-Collison) a. Do you feel it’s more likely the trade him, or sign a FA to challenge him? b. What FA Point guards do you like?
18:50 There is a palpable anger with the fan base. Is the anger within the fanbase at the highest level you’ve seen in the years since you’ve been covering the team?
26:00 Should the Bulls Buyout Lopez
29:00 Most Underrated Bull for KC Johnson in the Jordan Era

Chicago Bullseye 401 – Jars of Klay Filled with Baskets

See Red Fred @cbefred and Keith Frantz @bullscripted search through the wreckage of Monday’s loss to the Warriors.

The measure of a man is determined by his actions in times of trouble. Well, these are times of trouble.

1. We’re missing our best player (Lauri)
2. Our best defender (Green)
3. Our best 3-point shooter (Valentine)
4. Our 6th Man (Portis)

If Golden State was missing 4 of their top 7, they wouldn’t be playing well either.
