What else is there to say at this point?
A lot of smiles and laughs in Bulls layup line. No idea how they'll play -- but they are all cracking up right now.— Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) March 26, 2016
I'll assume all of the smiles pregame were from everyone deciding not to care anymore about the season. At least that's a pretty good conclusion after what unfolded tonight, right? The entire game, outside of Taj Gibson, was a poor, careless, effortless display of basketball. Outside of Taj Gibson, not one player on the team cared.
Orlando was on the second night of a back-to-back, they were missing three key contributors in Victor Oladipo, Nikola Vucevic, and Ersan Illyasova. And the fact that the Bulls came out and conceded victory in the first five minutes of the game, speaks volumes to where they are at mentally.
Oh, but let's go to tonight's highlights...

But wait...there's more!

Like Jason said earlier today, there's really no reason to care about this team anymore, it's obvious the players don't care. Tonight they officially quit on the season. There should absolutely be no mention of this team and playoffs in the same sentence from here on out. That door is shut.
Oh yeah, the Bulls lost tonight 111-89. But shoutout to our pal Stephen Noh on tonight's recap photo.
Bulls play again Monday night, but who really cares?
