    We ARE a bottom-of-the-barrel rebuilder. That was inevitable once LeBron left -- too many old, overpaid vets.

    We have a bunch of expiring contracts for next season -- JR's contract is especially valuable. We'll get some more assets & hopefully draft very high.

    This season absolutely stinks and it won't get better, but tearing this down to the studs & carefully rebuilding is exactly the right approach.

    The trade season in the summer and before next trade deadline will be very interesting for us.

    I wanna keep Delly on a smaller contract. I'd like to keep Love too. Everyone else can go

    Even with the worst record, the most likely outcome is numero 5. It sucks. We have to hope the agreement to not pursue tampering against LA will give us the number 1 more than the odds.

    Watching tonights game against the Wizards now, and you can tell we got the guys buying in for the tank. We'll get into the bottom three. I just hope we get an impact player with our pick. We got to get it right.

    Markannen might be too good to keep Chicago at the bottom. Knicks have this locked up but we should finish with the second worst record

    I don’t know. Team looked a lot better when love played. Adding a full time love Thompson and cedi back with a seemingly improving Sexton. I don’t know

    You're right, but management needs to make the goal happen. I'd think the players would realize that a few extra bricks and turnovers will help us get to the promised land. Especially as the season winds down and we see where the other teams are at.

    PHX also looked like they had a chance at the upset of the season last night vs. GS, but no such luck.

    Otto Porter is underrated. He will help the Bulls a lot. They are not tanking seriously with that trade.

    I think we got this. Knicks are a problem though.
