Ok, as refreshing as it was to see a record breaking margin of victory over the Bulls, I have to admit I was kinda rooting for them to close the gap at points. That was mercy fandom from me and it rarely happens. Twice clearing the floor by Boylen was a very public rip at the team :lol: …oh well, I am surprised Hoiberg lasted as long as he did.

I feel like the bulls are starting to get national attention for how dysfunctional they are. The second time pulling the starters last night was a bit drastic.
Boylen got what he deserved, It's only his third game but it will be interesting to see how the players react towards him the rest of the way.
Having the worst loss in franchise history isn't gonna help build anyones confidence. I don't think any fans believe in this front office anyway.
Rough season so far being a bulls fan. That golden state game earlier when Klay went off then the celtics last night.

No complaints here- we are winning!
We are losing since I made that comment - two in a row!

Still no complaints, teams have their ups and downs.

Tough roadtrip ahead- Clippers & Warriors on Tues & Wed, then Trail Blazers, Nuggets.

Yeah, I know all too well...on the other hand our schedule coming off our week off is really cush, with the exception of NO tonight

The Bulls are underdogs tonight by 2 pts.
They'll probably have a bounce back game and beat The Kings like 109 to 102.

Bulls were out to quiet the critics but were firing away at 3's like the playground team they are. I must be crazy to think they couldve beat a team over .500

Wade's last game vs LeBron was fun...he gifted his jersey to LeBron (they swapped) and game shoes to Josh Hart who grew up a Wade fan

Wade was always a killer..nothing but respect...he made LeBron come to him in Miami too

I read the Bulls filed a complaint with the NBA because the new coach worked them too hard at practice :lolol:

Hopefully Kyle Lowry can shake this brutal slump he's been in for this upcoming road trip

Jim Boylen announced yesterday the formation of a leadership committee composed of "a sparkling of the layers of our team".

A leadership committee? Get the fuck out of here

Steph and Andre Iguodala doubt that we sent people to the moon (although Steph now says he was "joking", but I feel that he just didn't like the backlash he got over the comment) and now today Kevin Durant says he doesn't know if we went to the moon.

My team is full of morons :waits:

For sure I thought we were going to lose when I saw that Kawhi was out, but we came out strong and got the W! 23-7 :rockon:

I hope JV is okay. His screaming in pain was hard to watch.

Gained on Philly and Milwaukee...I agree with KD, "The Raptors are here"

So, JV had surgery to relocate his thumb and repair the damage. He'll have a cast for a month and then who knows how long after that before he can play again. I don't know much about the type of injury he had or how long it takes to properly heal. Hope he's not out for the rest of the season. :sad:

Got tickets today for the Sacramento Kings game on Jan 22nd. It's one of the few remaining Raptors games where the ticket prices are still decent...got second level, 3rd row for $47 each( total). Should be a fun game. That'll be my second game this season, and then in Feb, I have the Celtics. I barely even watch hockey now. :lol:

Good one last night for the Raptors, OG was incredible! :rockon:
Norman Powell wasn't bad either, hope he keeps it up.

Philly again tonight- no Kawhi, no Serge, no JV.
