It is not in the Chicago Bulls’ best interests to win basketball games right now. Not trying particularly hard to win basketball games is called tanking and is frowned upon in this establishment. But if you must do it, at least try to make it look good.
Why? Because the alternative looks like this.
I know, I know, all five Bulls players surrounding a bricked DeAndre Jordan free-throw were giving their best effort to corral it as zero Clippers made an attempt to do the same. And yet …
David Nwaba and Kris Dunn just couldn’t abide by the Judgement of Solomon and cut the rebound in half.
Oh yeah, the Bulls happened to lose. Again.
