Bulls vs. Nets game preview and thread: total disaster of a franchise set to face Brooklyn

the stretch run for 8th place and Karnisovas to complete his evaluation!

It would be even worse if it wasn’t so predictable.

The Bulls are not a serious franchise with real expectations. They literally do nothing, and then give a press conference that is effectively a giant “fuck off, and don’t bother me” message to the fanbase. From the non-quotes to the body language, Karnisovas just gave off total loser energy and inspired as much confidence in the fanbase as his team has this season.

One of the Paxson-ian lines was that he felt the trade deadline shifted more good players to the other conference, which clears the way for his stand-pat bunch.

That obviously means tonight’s opponent, the Brooklyn Nets. They traded away Kyrie Irving last week, and Kevin Durant last night. Durant was hurt, regardless, but this should be a skeleton crew for the Nets. I don’t think it counts as ‘playing well against good teams’, the joke of a standard Karnisovas used to say his team has improved at all this year.

Injury Report:

Also gone from the Durant trade is TJ Warren. Starters Nic Claxton and Seth Curry will be out with injury.

For the Bulls, everyone is available.

Game Time: 6:30pm central, TNT
