On the front of the Chicago Tribune sports section, it reads: “Team President Michael Reinsdorf and the rest of the Bulls brass are doing everything in their power to retain season ticket holders for the 2019-20 season.”
Well, yeah, that’d be very beneficial to keep season ticket holders. You lose them, you lose money, and that’s no bueno. The thing I don’t understand is why there is such an uproar. This team picked a lane. They chose to rebuild and they have acquired much young talent with hopes to add another in a possible top four draft pick.
With the lottery less than two days away, there should be plenty of optimism running rampant amongst Bulls fans.
The Bulls have one of the youngest and most promising squads in all of the NBA. The issue hasn’t been the performance, the issue has been all of the injuries. The flashes that Bulls fans saw this year of Zach Lavine, Lauri Markkanen, and Wendell Carter Jr. are enough to get the excitement going. Add in the acquisition of Otto Porter Jr. and what he did for the Bulls, and you’re missing one piece — a point guard.
Kris Dunn struggled all year long, but the Bulls are in a prime spot to spend on a veteran point guard such as Chicago native Patrick Beverly or, you know, Derrick Rose. Having a top-four pick in all of this as well could see the Bulls draft Ja Morant or Darius Garland. Both of those prospects are high on many Bulls fans’ draft boards and could essentially fit like a glove within this roster.
So, let’s all take a chill pill and see how this plays out over the next two months. Season ticket holders should be excited about how quickly this rebuild has gone and should look forward to the finished product.
