The guys are back with a brand new episode discussing what turns out to be a rather busy weekend for the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls first announced that they have resigned Nikola Mirotic to a multi-year deal. Jordan and Matt have questions as to why they brought back Niko and if it stunts the growth of younger players like first round pick Lauri Markkanen. Does the front office not want to admit to another swing and a miss on draft night with Mirotic?
What came as a complete surprise, the Bulls and Dwyane Wade agreed to a buyout on Sunday which leaves Wade a free agent and the Bulls officially blowing up the Three Alphas. Did GarPax get more back than most fans thought? What will be the most memorable moment from Wade's lone season in Chicago? Which landing spot will Wade ultimately choose in free agency?
Finally, the guys touch on the entire Bulls Media Day filled with plenty of audio from the GarPax and Fred Hoiberg press conference. A conversation about how the media and the Chicago Bulls interact while John Paxson and Gar Forman have been in control. Has the media not put enough pressure on the front office

On this episode, the guys start the show by talking about Rajon Rondo and his appearance on Kevin Garnett's KGArea21. In a reunion with the 2007-08 Boston Celtics core, Rondo talks about his first year with the Chicago Bulls. He's asked his thoughts on how the season went including the unknown direction of the team and lack of chemistry. What type of value does Rondo bring to next year's team if the Bulls pick up his option?
The guys spend the second half of the show talking about whether or not high school players should be allowed to attend the NBA Combine. A story was written by Sports Illustrated's Brian Hamilton, the guys debate whether or not this makes sense for the future of the NBA. Jordan and Matt finish the show talking about potential Bulls prospects including Wake Forest's John Collins and Purdue's Caleb Swanigan.
The guys are back after a weekend in which ended the Chicago Bulls season. The Bulls fell to the Boston Celtics in Game 6 at home leaving the Bulls with plenty of questions this offseason. The guys talk about the comments made by Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade in regards to their future. Does the Bulls front office believe Jimmy can be the guy this team can build around, not with? Jordan has a theory on why Butler wants to stay put in Chicago.
The Bulls have one player, in particular, that is being campaigned to stay for the 2017-18 season. Why Rajon Rondo will likely be back in a Bulls uniform in 2017-18. How are the young Bulls going to spend their offseason and what are they promised going forward? Denzel Valentine talks about an increased role with the team and a repeat at the Summer League Title. Paul Zipser and Bobby Portis have plans to become more versatile players, spending the summer modeling their games after some of the NBA's best at their position.
The guys wrap up with talking about what to expect from Fred Hoiberg and Gar/Pax. What kind of direction will the front office and coaching staff

The guys are back with their reaction from Game 5 in Boston. A very winnable game turned so quickly into one that the Bulls should want to forget. Jordan and Matt discuss what was working for the Bulls early and why they trended away from that in the fourth quarter. Is Fred Hoiberg being out coached? Jordan seems to think so and he explains why.
The possibility of Rondo returning in this series is discussed. What changed the outlook of Rondo's return? An update on Rondo's injury status and why it will be extremely unlikely he returns in Game 6. How Isaiah Canaan was inherently asked to fill a role fluttered with expectations and how he fared in Game 5.
The guys talk about Dwyane Wade and his impact so far in this playoff. Wade had a boxscore sort of night but Matt and Jordan seem to think Wade has begun to hurt the Bulls late. How can the Bulls find a way to pull off a win at home on Friday? Will Fred continue to juggle lineups? Who will be the experiment to get legitimate playing

The guys are back with a brand new episode after the Chicago Bulls take another game on the road in Boston. How could this be possible? Who is this new revitalized Bulls team and why is it coming all together now? Jordan and Matt discuss the supposed 'private meeting' between Rajon Rondo, Jimmy Butler, and Dwyane Wade prior to Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs. The guys explain whether or not they are sold on the Bulls being able to complete the 8th seed upset.
The guys talk about the young Bulls stepping up in each of the first two games and who might impact Game 3 on Friday. Robin Lopez has been dominating Boston on the glass, is there any hope for the Celtics to match his performances?
Even if the Bulls win this series, what does it all mean for the front office's plan for the summer? Does this sudden click between 'the Three Alphas' bring Wade and Rondo back next season? Jordan believes there is a scenario in which the Bulls pursue notable name superstars in their strive to 'retool, not rebuild'.
