This episode previously aired on Dash Radio Thursday, April 20, 2017 – 5-6 a.m. and 8-9 a.m. CT.
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’. Speaking of summer, Jordan and Matt finish the show by understanding whether the Bulls will match Nikola Mirotic’s offer sheet with another team this summer. How does Mirotic stack up against some of the other leagues underperformed players’ contracts? All of this and so much more on The Debate-A-Bulls.
