I Fucking Hate This Bulls Team

 

 

 

 

You know what’s the worst feeling as a fan? When a team quits on you but you refuse to quit on it. That’s where we’re at with this Bulls team. If you watched last night they flat out quit. Going into the All Star break, at home, All-4-One playing at halftime (nbd), and they flat out quit. I seriously despise this team. I’ve talked about it ad nauseam, how they’re not good enough to win but just good enough to never get into the lottery, but now without Jimmy Butler they just flat out suck. It’s the perfect storm of shit. Fred Hoiberg was supposed to come and soothe the fractions in this team yet somehow they all hate each other even more. Guys were supposed to get less minutes, be fresh for the playoffs, and avoid injuries. Taj, Derrick (not saying much), Jimmy, and Jo, all injured at some point during this year. The young guys haven’t progressed whatsoever, the old guys stink (Pau has the most hollow stats in the league), and Derrick Rose still has just enough to show us flashes that get our hopes up, only to crush them with inconsistent play and soreness. I fucking hate them. I tweeted last night, what if the Bulls just didn’t come back from the All-Star game as a joke but it sort of wasn’t. They’ve sucked the fun out of basketball. If I have to watch Aaron Brooks dribble for 20 seconds only to pass it to a scared Tony Snell as he throws up an awful shot at the end of the shot clock for another 30 more games I may scoop my eyeballs out of their sockets.

 

 

And the worst part? Nothing is going to change. They’re completely stuck. Any flexibility they had with trades went out the door when Jo got injured. Derrick has another year, a bunch of young guys have no trade value because they suck, and Jimmy is the future even though he’s out for the next month. Oh and this report yesterday made me want to puke and cry at the same time.

They want to re-sign Pau! They want to re-sign a guy who is an old lumbering post player that needs constant touches to contribute, aka the exact opposite direction the entire league is headed. It fucking sucks. And I’m not going to quit because that’s just not the type of fan I am. I’ll still watch, I’ll still get excited when Derrick drops 30 or when Jimmy comes back and the Bulls win a couple in a row, I’ll even tell myself getting the 6th seed is somehow better than the lottery because anyone can get hot for a 7 game series. I’ll do all of this because I’m dumb and I have no choice. But I want it on the record that even though I’m not quitting, I fucking hate this team. I hate them.
