That’s bloody brilliant. It’s my new favorite NBA Christmas video.
The Bulls had kept the band together to make one more run at a title with Derrick Rose leading them, but when Rose went down that dream was dashed and it was time to talk retooling the roster. You can bet Luol Deng will be shopped at least, the odds of a Carlos Boozer amnesty next summer went up.
The Bulls will not be tanking in the classic sense, but with injuries that kept Deng, Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler out on Tuesday they did lose to the lowly Milwaukee Bucks. It was tankingesque.
Still, in the sorry East, it’s hard to imagine the Bulls falling all the way to the lottery. Tom Thibodeau will not allow it.
