Mirotic: Mood...  

Good thing there's going to be a lot of blowouts this year!

lauri markkanen.. what ? hes been away for the past week and a half with the birth of his child....

 

I'm well aware. He's also had to play behind him and Mirotic this entire season and still put up nice value. And now that Mirotic is gone, there's absolutely no way "the ride is over"

Mm heading that way for me too, missed the boat on Powell - spewing. But don’t know about Bender. Points are inconsistent af, Denver was his only really relevant fantasy score. You think he’s trending up? Potentials there.

I don't know what some people here are expecting. He's doing great on a per-minute basis. I just hope Vonleh doesn't muddle things. As long as he has a 23-29 mpg role this guy can produce. if they finally decide to sit Lopez's a** down (who knows when that'll be), then there's a great chance that he and Markkanen can really flourish - especially upon Dunn's return post ASG.

 

He is who he is. 

 

45% - 47%, gives you 3's from the PF/C, good source of points/boards, gets decent steals as long as he's getting minutes in the mid twenties, not a bad passer (has 3 assists or more in 3 of his last 6 games), and he knocks down his freethrows. He's basically Zach Randolph with more 3's and better FT%. There's nothing to dislike about that unless you're a team struggling in blocks and FG% - in which case you shouldn't roster him if you're looking to shore up those areas.

 

Since I've picked him up along with Bullock and Hezonja my PPG has jumped up tremendously, I've been top 2 in PPG in the past 3 weeks in my league with these pickups. It's not easy to find bigs who can score a ton, and he does that nicely, which really supplements your guards well. 

 

I said he'd bounce back in his shooting when people here stressed out that he's at 30% the week prior, in his last 3 games he's between 47% - 57%.. law of averages; it'll only get better when Dunn returns (for reasons which you can see a few pages ago).

2 week average. 

 

13/9/3 on 39 percent shooting.  

 

Shooting slumps are going to happen but with Miro gone the shots are always gojng to be there regardless of pt at this point. Must hold for me regardless but I’m going Bobby gets at lest 25 per ros.

Felico and Nwaba expected to start on Thursday, it seems like Portis might be limited to a 21-25 min role ros regardless of who is healthy or not. The Bulls won't even start Bobby when Larry misses time. I am kind of disappointed but o well.

I don’t understand why Felicio is starting over him. #freebobby

Yup I do not either since he has been a massive bust since they gave that guy a big contract. I guess he have to live with 13-15 points per and about 4-6 bounds per ros with no upside.

imo Lopez should completely fall out of the rotation and spread Lopez backup minitues to the young guys.

A guy who for the last month of the season averaged less than 10 minutes a game is now getting the starting job? Does he even have the stamina?

One is a bully, other got a good contract last year, so they have some trust in that guy and want to give him a chance at starting C! Portis owners should feel confident, maybe after Felicio Portis will have some starting 5 run. just my 2 cents.

But blurb says the coach said this starting lineup will be a lasting move.
