Just firing this up in case anybody's watching and wants to chat.
We have the Skills Challenge, Dunk Contest, and 3-Point Contest tonight. There are no Bulls. There were no Bulls last night either in the 'rising stars' game, as though Nikola Mirotic was invited he's out with injury.
Jimmy Butler is also out with injury, though you get fun nuggets from him talking to the press. (some not-fun nuggetsabout the defense sucking, too).
Combine that with the Bulls front office being totally dormant and not even involved in far-flinging trade rumors, the whole franchise is pretty irrelevant during the league's weekend showcase.
