Ben Taylor on Zach LaVine
I used to hang out in here a lot during the Thabo Sefolosha years. Lonzo Ball bringing me back to the CHI. Here's a thread of some of my fondest memories as a bulls fan ✨
Interesting pickup to get another all conference 1st team player. Not bad pickup for basically a free tryout, and can likely stash him in the G-League or possibly later sign him to a two-way deal if he impresses..
This is really interesting…

Bulls didn’t leave empty-handed in the award season after all. Thad got, deservedly, the award beating Ben Simmons
The Tank Commander during his time with the Bulls (outside of that one insane game in which he hit seven 3-pointers in the second half), Payne has now developed into one of the best backup point guards in the NBA and is making waves in the first round against none other than LeBron James and the Lakers. It really started in the bubble last year and has continued on throughout this season and into the playoffs. The Suns have the battered Lakers on the ropes after a dominant Game 5 performance in Phoenix. Payne played a key role in the victory, putting up 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting to help the Suns go up 3-2 in the series. Payne has seen even more minutes than usual this series because of Chris Paul’s shoulder problems, and he has embraced the challenge and played with a confidence and swagger that was rarely seen in Chicago.
In a wild shootout in 1988 against Clyde Dexler's Blazers, Michael Jordan gave us a subtle, slightly violent glimpse into the future.
Having essentially gone off the grid as far as televised sports go, I have no strong feelings one way or another on this one. Thoughts?
