The Chicago Bulls are Struggling

The Chicago Bulls are 5-13 through their first 18 games. Only four teams in the NBA have a worse record: The Grizzlies, Spurs, Wizards, and Pistons. All teams that are without an all-star player. The Chicago Bulls have three all-stars who are currently active. The Bulls, who are currently on a four-game losing streak, look lost. The roster has tried over and over again to no avail. Turing this season around would be a miracle. All eyes await the eventual roster breakup that the Bulls are heading toward. Zach LaVine trade rumors are hot, DeRozan and the Bulls are far apart on extension talks, and the team has nothing going for them.

On the contrary, the Orlando Magic who traded Nikola Vucevic to the Bulls, are having their best season in years. The Magic currently sit as the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference with a record of 12-5. The Orlando Magic ended up with Wendell Carter Jr. and Franz Wagner in that trade, who have been two key players for their team. Meanwhile, the Bulls have one first-round elimination to show for their end of the trade. Rather than dwelling on the trade and trying to force the team to work, it’s time to recoup assets. Shelling out LaVine, DeRozan, Vucevic, and Caruso will surely net a solid return to begin a rebuild.

While a full-on rebuild is not what AKME envisioned for the Bulls, they must swallow their pride and do what makes the most sense for the team.
The Bulls have a brutal nine-game stretch beginning tonight against the Boston Celtics. The Bulls will then play the Bucks, Pelicans, Bucks again, Nuggets, Heat, Heat again, the 76ers, and the Lakers.
