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.

The Big Red Bus #18 – BullsHQ Mark Rides the Bus Again

Bulls Podcasting Legends See Red Fred @cbefred and Doug Thonus @doug_thonus take the Big Red Bus out for a ride with BullsHQ Founder and Australian minor-celebrity Mark Karantzoulis @mkhoops.  Recorded on Sunday, September 16th, before all the See Red Fred prophet status and predictions were realized about Thibs and Butler.  Many topics are broached on the bus, including:

  1. Is the point of the upcoming season in developing all of the players/assets, or winning as many games as possible (i.e. cutting back on Jabari or Lavine’s minutes if they are losing ballgames)? Are those two things mutually exclusive? – @danoconnell
  2. It’s been a awhile since a team has won a title w/ their 2 best players at the 4 & 5 (Duncan-Robinson Spurs). Can the Bulls win a title if Lauri-WCJ become their 2 best players?
  3. Do you agree that this season it’s most important that we develop our players to the level we make the play off so that we have tangible assets we can either trade for AD at the end of the year or show him we have a young core he can join as a free agent and compete for a title?
  4. Does adding Klay Thompson to the 2019-20 Bulls a Title Contender? Kawhi Leonard?
  5. Do you have concerns that the Bulls are the Suns of 2013-14?
  6. What team is likely to beat out the Bulls for the #7 seed….the Pistons, Heat, Hornets, or Cavs?
  7. What will Thibs do about the impending disaster in Minn? What should Thibs do?
  8. Official Win Total Predictions
