Fresh update on "chicago bulls" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Coming backwards. But on the flip side, you have New Orleans jumping up, although I guess New Orleans was ahead of them already. You could argue Sacramento improved more than they did. I'm just looking at like, I thought the Schroeder thing was hilarious, because Schroeder left the Celtics tried to trade for three weeks before the deadline, as you know. They're trying to get away to everybody. And then the last second, the rockets were like, hey, we kind of want to get off this tice contract. We'll take Schroeder if, you know, if you and the seltzer are great and they'll shoot her, right? No playoff team wanted him. And then the Lakers get him three weeks ago and everyone's like, Schroeder, great deal, savvy, minimum. And it's like, what are you guys talking about? No playoff team wanted him 6 months ago. This was not savvy. Lonnie walker was the worst mid level exception guy. Anyone signed this whole leak. They did not make themselves better. It really the way they're doing it. They don't have any shooting. This is what I do. They're missing the two things that help them win the title three years ago and they still had an address it. I know that's another topic conversation. The point that you're making about Dan Davis is like, what if it's like, it's one thing that the Lakers are a disaster. But what if they're not a disaster, but they're still not good enough, which I think I just don't think they're good enough. I mean, as good as LeBron and ADR, they could have good seasons. Lonnie walker could be better than we think. Russell Westbrook could not have to be sent home in November. And they could still be in tenth place. This is what I keep saying. Like, I was in Cleveland two weeks ago when Donovan Mitchell arrived. I was talking to the Cavs talks. I was like, guys, this team could be awesome. And you could finish 6th. Because that's the nature of it. So like, somebody at midseason may be two teams, and I'm looking at the Chicago Bulls. And Lonzo Ball gave an interview today Tuesday. It was a extraordinarily depressing interview about the state of his knee. Yeah, it sounds brutal. That he can't go upstairs without pain that he can't run, like the doctors have to go in there and see what's wrong. Like if you're to be vomiting in the trash can hearing that. And you're looking at the east, you're looking at Atlanta trading for all stars and the Cavs trading for all stars. Those are teams that were behind you that just went past you. So like, what happens to the bulls at midseason? What happens to the Lakers may be a mid season. So like, I'm gonna write that down in my imaginary notebook. Which you just brought up. Now, the lakes are thanks for not matching. Thanks for not mentioning the Celtics in the what happens to them. I appreciate that. Why would the Celtics be that way? I think the Celtics are awesome. Okay, great. It's been not an easy week. I agree. And maybe they won't be as good as they were last year, but they're like, nah, that's the beginning. Yeah. They'll still be defensively. But yeah, it hasn't been an awesome off season. Well, it was a good off season. Like three weeks ago, Tim bontemps from our staff, he surveyed a couple dozen NBA executives. They said, who had the best off season? Celtics finished first. First, three weeks ago. The NBA was fast. The Knicks are another team that I feel like could godfather offer Davis. And I do feel like that was a piece of not ultimately going too far with Mitchell because I just feel like the way I said this before, but the way the league works now, there's gonna be another Mitchell. There's gonna be, you're just sitting in that bar stool, waiting for the opposite sex to come in, and if it didn't click with the one, well, guess what? Two hours later, somebody else is gonna be sitting in the stool next to you. And you just gotta be ready. That's right. And here's the other thing though, I think right now the Lakers think that they're gonna take advantage of that. They think we're gonna get to

"They just went on a 9 game run without basically without Caruso, with guys in and out of health and safety protocols. And they lost Patrick Williams at the very beginning of the season. I think if they do make a move for a grant for Harrison Barnes type player, they will very likely have to part ways, which is a big step to do that for someone that's very, very talented and was only in a second year. So I'm right there with you. I think they need more and even if they do make a move like that, I'm still not sure it makes them a favorite. I think it closes the gap some, but it's a gamble. I don't know that they expected to be here this past. When I talked to carna service and I talked to Billy Donovan and demar and everybody else, you know, before the season, nobody was even willing to put estimates on how good they thought they could be. And I kind of took that to mean like, we think we're a playoff team, but we don't want to come off too cocky and then look stupid. Like when they wouldn't answer the question directly, and now they're for right now the one seed. So, you know, it's a lot to kind of go from the one speed to the other and to kind of really put your money on the table to say we're going to go for it. I don't know if they do, but I would like to see it just because it'd be cool to see it, but it's not my house money that I'm playing with. Just watching that game last night. And I've said this before, they don't have a true number one. I don't mean any shade. And I say it, I'm always going to come off like I'm throwing shade, but I'm not. Like a number one is rare air as an NBA player. Because those dudes in the league everybody who's the number one on their team is a number one on a championship team. Like they're the number one on their team, they don't win shit, right? So I see the Marta Rosen Zach lavine and vucevic as like awesome top tier best in the league type of twos, you know? And so I just think that the balance is a little skewed right now towards the Marty's been so good and Zack's been so good that you've lost what Nick could be as a number two in that equation. And I think in a game like last night, it doesn't have to be every night because those two have clearly that your first and the east are beating a lot of people like that. But when you get that small ball from another team and you're as the bulls are going to keep vucevic on the floor, you've got to be able to make that quick switch to take advantage of what he really can do. You can't just have him floating around the perimeter not making them pay for being small. I get the feeling that this is the year they have to make a run. I just feel like with just what demar and just kind of the age and I feel like this is just the year where it's all coming together type year where you want to take advantage of this because there's no going there's no guarantees after this season. But we'll see before we get out of here. It's time for a little segment that we like to call. Real one of the week. I'm gonna go first, man. I'm gonna go with the Vegas Oakland Los Angeles raiders. Big win last week to get into the postseason. I'm gonna watch a playoff raider's game, Raja. I'm gonna watch the Raiders in the playoffs this year. I've only done that twice. And since I was like 8 years old. So, you know, I'm gonna do that this year. I'm very very excited about this. The Oakland Vegas Los Angeles writers. We'll see what happens. They're probably gonna lose. But you know we'll see what happens. Raja, who is your real one of the week? That's a tough week man. It's gotta be football centric, right? So I'm gonna go with Big Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers for his farewell tour. Getting them into the playoffs. It's gonna be a quick exit. Yeah. But I mean, they were down and you know, out and just dysfunction. And I've already given Mike Tomlin flowers on the show, but I'm gonna give Big Ben and the Steelers real ones in a week for getting into the playoffs on his farewell tour. Chris, who is your real one of the week? I'm going to break them all just a little bit, not a team, not even a player, Spike Lee, man, shouted me out yesterday with the book. He apparently from what I was told and assistant to Simon and Schuster's office to get an early copy of this book that comes out in a couple of days. Because he wanted it. He saw it circulating he wanted it and needed to have a copy and then posted it on his Instagram and then said brother herring was kind enough to get me a copy of the book called me brother hearing and I immediately immediately went back to Malcolm X and was just thinking about all the scenes in that movie and being a Muslim in the whole night. I was like, man, I was so honored and just means the world to me that he would want to read it and I hope that he gets a chance to. And I hope someday that the book becomes a documentary because I really do feel like teams like that. I don't think you should have to win the whole thing. I mean, roger was part of a team that was fascinating and I've compared the Knicks to some of those dantonio teams, certainly the rockets where people didn't like the way they played, necessarily, but they absolutely changed the league in a way that is unmistakable. And I think what the Knicks even more so visually just as far as the fighting and the physicality and stuff, but spike was right in the middle of that. So the fact that he wanted the book is trying to read it and trying to get his hands on it early, could not be more honored that he gave me the love in the shout out and very appreciative of that. That's dope. So Spike Lee told you to do it. So go get blood in the garden. It's supposed to come out. January 18th. Make sure you go get that everywhere you're born. Barney's and no blaze, you know, your amazons. Everywhere you get books, make sure you go tap in on the ringer side, make sure you check out everything on the ringer NBA feed that is upside high. That is group chat. Make sure you also check out the mismatch feed, which also has a mismatch. You know where to go. Make sure you go, for all the void. Would Kevin O'Connor make sure you go check out the answer with Siri. Make sure you also go check out black girl.

"A little bit overblown at times. I mean, I think the one kind of threw away that fits is that and I kind of mentioned this at the very, very end of the book and the epilogue. When they lost van Gundy when he resigned abruptly in the middle of a season in 2001, they lost really the last bit of their DNA because you know van Gundy was a Riley disciple and someone that literally Riley had exit meetings with his assistant coaches as well, and he would ask them what their thoughts were, what they thought they did well, what they wanted to improve on what their aspirations were. And so Riley has been going to because he was basically the youngest coach in the league when he got hired by far. I think it was like 34. He might not have even been that old. I can't remember, but when he was an assistant, Riley asked him, do you want to be a head coach in this league? And he said, well, you know, I guess so, I hadn't really thought about it. I never imagined that I could because I don't have a playing background I ever played in the league and Riley told me don't need that. Really, what you need to start doing is dressing better if you want to be at coach. You know, and work on the appearance a little bit, but he told him he was like, look, if you're confident and you work your tail off and the guy's respect you doesn't matter how tall you are, it doesn't matter whether you play it or not. I see the way you work around here, I see the way these guys respect you because you come in early. You leave late, you work hard, you know your stuff. You've been around the sport for a long time. That's enough. You just have to kind of sharpen some of the other stuff that you probably don't think about in terms of the way you carry yourself the way you talk the way you look to some extent. But anyway, so he trained pat. I'm sorry. He trades Jeff to kind of be ready for that. And he wanted to bring Jeff with them to Miami, the Nick said, no, because, you know, there's obviously tampering involved with pat's exit and pat was still under contract. So was Jeff. So they didn't let him go to Miami. But when Jeff resigned from the Knicks, really unexpectedly, that really took the last bits of really what that era was with them. And so the connection that I draw now is that Tom thibodeau was an assistant under Jeff. During those years, and he came back into the organization, they were a team that worked extremely hard that when you watched them, they were closing out on every shot, extremely hard. They didn't have, I mean, maybe they do have talent, but it's rot out, still it's their young guys. A lot of young guys on the roster. But also, I'm watching guys that I have not, you know, maybe roger feels differently, but I watched Derek rose. I watched him for plenty of years here in Chicago. You know, and he was never a special defender. I still don't think he's a special defender, but knows how to operate within what dividend wants to do and can play within a team system. They played within a really great system. I do think there was some good fortune. I won't necessarily, but you looked at the metrics last year and you looked at how teams were shooting on wide open shots and stuff like that and not just that, but I think I remember doing a strand this at one point, I think they had of the 13 guys in the league that had the biggest three point percentage improvement last year. The Knicks had like 5 of them. It was like rose, Randall, Barrett, Bullock, and I'm blanking on maybe one other guy. Maybe it was for, but they had a lot of guys kind of have career years from three last year, and they were really, really great at defending the three, but also even when they were leaving guys wide open. They were missing a lot of three. So there were probably some good fortune involved with that. And then this year, so there were similarities in terms of like the defense keeping them in games last year that they could win, even when their offense wasn't there. That was what the 90s next were all the time. They didn't have much offense. So their defense was keeping them in games all the time our winning games for them all the time. And last year's team did that too. Now it came back to bite them in the house when they played a team like the hawks that have a lot of offense and a lot of creators. So I think that was kind of the similarity that I took from it. They very much had a ceiling with that team last year. And I think they tried to address it. They certainly tried to address it with kimba and Evan fournier. I don't think that's necessarily the answer. I think we've kind of seen that. But you can see what they're trying to do and you can see what Tom's trying to do sometimes. And you can see some of the similarities, but the physicality is still a lot of different level from the 90s. And I think that that that's the major difference. They work hard and they worked really hard last year, but it was more than just a work hard thing. The 90s teams were feared. And there was never going to be that comparison. I don't think. Yeah, and quite frankly, the league's never going to let anyone get to a point. Never get physically where you're someone else fears you. They've just taken that completely out of the game. What I hear and when you're saying that, it's kind of the way I felt. They were both kind of under doggy type of teams. You know what I mean? Like they were both kind of like overachieving. I think the 90s Knicks probably have more star power overall, like guys that were, but they're overachievers. And Tim's a system is one that I think cities like New York, Philly, Chicago,.

"And mason said, fuck you, I made it to this system. And the rest of the practice every time he would get within really shouting distance of that assistant, he would just even once they moved on to other Josie black fuck you, I made it, and he just repeated it like 9, ten, 11, 12 times. And the coach was like, all right, mason, you're freaking me out. And to the point where, and I actually, I wasn't hesitant to include this because it's like, I need to take myself out of it enough to where I'm letting people have the floor and what they think and what impacts their mindset. I need to let that breathe. So I did include it. Kind of rubbed me the wrong way a little bit just 'cause I'm like, you know, you don't want to make black people have to be scary when it's just that they're saying something, but mace wasn't imposing guy. The assistant coach went to the front desk of the hotel where they were staying for training camp and asked for a room change because he thought mace would take it out on him for having told him that he finished after. He thought mace was that scary. But then again, you know, in fairness to that coach, mace did that I have this in the book too. Leave essentially a written death threat for Don Nelson. Oh my God. After a game where I'm pretty sure mace played 38 minutes, it was a year where mason led the league in minutes, Anthony mason led the league in minutes. Like, Michael Jordan, not Patrick Ewing. Anthony mason, but he still was complaining about playing time in a game where he didn't play particularly well. And so Don Nelson went and spoke to the media and then by the time he went back to his office, he came out and went into his office and was trying to figure out who the hell left this note, but a couple of the assistants had seen mason storming out of Don Nelson's office before Nelson got back there. So everybody kind of put two and two together that it had to have the basement. And it was and the message was like scrawled on a piece of paper like, if you fucking take me out of a game ever again, I'll fucking kill you sort of thing. So I anonymous signed anonymous. You know, so I don't know. There was that aspect of him, Nelly, Nelly didn't really make a big deal of that. It wasn't public, 'cause you don't want to look as if you don't have control of your team. But then when mace got traded later to Charlotte for Larry Johnson, a really high profile trade. The trade was held up really, really briefly and they weren't going to sign off on it, Charlotte, because they had heard through the Grapevine that basically they were worried that mace might have had like roid rage, because Nelly essentially told Dave Collins, the coach there, who he was friends with, like, he'd have these emotional outbursts that couldn't tell where they came from. And so, you know, there wasn't any evidence to that necessarily obviously mace was built a certain way. I did ask questions around that. Nobody really had any clear definitive things or, you know, nobody knew anything definitively, but so people were kind of afraid of them, other guests were by and loved them. You know, he had different sides to him. But Oakley was so imposing and, you know, there were people that told me over the course of the book with the next generally you didn't think they were necessarily out to hurt you, but you also kind of weren't sure that they weren't out to hurt you. And so I think the whole team was just kind of really fearsome when you think about it on the court. Sometimes off the court, but just to me, I really liked the subtitle of the book. The flagrant history of the 1990s mix just because I kind of feel like they were on the court Ann off the court. They kind of had a lot of stories to tell. A lot of stories they were part of. And a lot of people that are afraid of them. I would talk about this book all day long. This is great. I do want to expose that with the current mix, right? There was actually a trade. There was actually a trade today. Kevin and I don't know the hawks for cam reddish. I don't know. It's too soon for me to have an actual reaction about that trade. I don't know how to, but I want to say this iteration of the Knicks. I was watching them last night against the Mavs. And every time I've seen them, I know, I think that they're a great team for New York. I know the record doesn't show that, but I'm only saying this is an outsider from the West Coast. And I want to ask you this Chris. Why did you think last year when a team built around Julius Randle and RJ Barrett and really tough hard nosed dudes really resonated with that with that city so much? It seemed like it also got comparisons to the 90s mix. How does that how does this current iteration to the next kind of capturing the hearts of New York right now? Yeah, no, I think there were some similarities last.

"Beaters are threes. Yeah, I didn't know he could do that to be perfectly blunt with you bed. I didn't think that he had those shots in his game. The shots that I knew he had are the mid range jumpers and we had Kirk goldsbury on this podcast, pretty recently to talk about Kevin Durant and how Kevin Durant has become this master of the mid range. His mid range jumpers are more valuable in terms of shot efficiency than most players three pointers because of his skill at that shot, but the martyr Rosen. I mean, he might be the king in his own way. This is his thing. It's just a story of damar's career, right? Like what looks like a bad shot for most players. He's just not actually a bad shot for him. You know, he's been so good at getting to exactly what spot he wants and taking exactly what shot he wants and really like Kevin Durant. The defender doesn't feel like it matters a whole lot. You know, he's shooting about as frequently as he did from that bit range area like he did in Toronto, but in 2016, 17, one of the last times that he took as many mid range field goals, he was shooting 41% on those looks. Back in 2016, 2017. This season, that's up to 47%. And that's on pace for the highest average of his career. We should add jubal that the barter rose is he's not doing this alone. Like when I watch this team, they play like they've been playing together for years. So as the beat writer, the guy watching this team night in night out in person, what are you seeing? What's impressive about how they've been doing this? I think so many guys are just in the right role, right? Like demar and Zach are able to lead the offense and lead their respective units and really everything runs through those guys. On the other end of the floor, you've got Lonzo in Caruso. And they just make life hell. They're so good. The call of YouTube has got out to a slow start, but his last ten games or so, he's been an automatic double double 17 and ten guy. They just have a rotation in a team right now that all knows exactly how to play off each other. How does demar himself given all of this? How does he feel about the prospects of his team being able to compete with, say, Milwaukee, Brooklyn, like the conventional favorites in the Eastern Conference down the stretch? I think the fact that this team came in and just gelled so quickly so instantly and find themselves on top of the conference. I think that kind of has him looking even further, right? He's not been to Eastern Conference Finals in years. And I think that he really looks at this as a chance to say if we get the right health, the right luck, the right timing, he thinks his team has got a chance to get to the finals and that's the one thing that he hasn't done in his career. What's the feeling on his team, man? Consider where y'all are now at this point. I believe championship man. If we healthy, we got the capability.

So Jamal, when we talk about the chemistry experiment here in Chicago, it's important to remember that this wasn't obvious. None of this was obvious. I didn't think it was going to go this well. And part of it is because they have this star who is a ball dominant guy in Zach lavine and all star slam dunk contest championship. What is his relationship like with demar Derozan? What was Zach lavine's reaction when demar decided to come to his team? So Zach is in Tokyo for the Olympics for playing for Team USA when this goes down in free agency. But his reaction is just Alicia. I mean, Zach, once he gets back to the states, both him and tomorrow live in Southern California. Zach takes a couple of days off, but he drives down to meet damar in person. They work out together probably about two and a half hours a long workout, and then they just kind of sit down and talk. And I think one of the things that works for these two dudes, they're very similar, very low key, low maintenance, chill dudes, and there's not a huge ego. Zack has really come into his own over the past few years in Chicago and really emerged as an all star and people have seen the talent. The team keeps losing. And Zach now really feels like I've got a teammate that's got my back. And it's been reflected on the court. These guys are 7th and 8th in the NBA in scoring. They allow each other to play off each other when one guy is hot. They don't mind deferring. I've been the only guys that were not surprised by how well this worked. It's the two of them. After that first meeting, when they're about to leave, damar remembers any of that conversation and telling Zack. I told him, don't worry about anything. This shit gonna work. That's it. That was it. You know what I mean? That's how we ended one conversation. We never talked about how we gonna make it working in. I just said, you won't work. This shit is gonna work. So the way in which this has worked, the dramatic fashion in which this worked jabal. The end of these bulls games. It's remarkable, right? Because these are the two guys who conceivably would want the ball. Both of them would want it. But who has been taking the crunch time shots for the Chicago Bulls? Demar has been the guy that has stepped forward and really led the board. They just trust him in the fourth quarter because of the calmness because of his experience in those kind of moments. He leaves the NBA in total fourth quarter points. Zach lavine is 5th the last teammate Pablo, by the way to lead to be top 5 in scoring in the fourth quarter. Not any of the obvious ones that you might think over the past few years. Kevin Garnett and Sam cassell for those old Timberwolves teams a million years ago. But jabal, there is a similarity here, right? Because when I think of demar Derozan this season now, I think of a guy with enormous cojones, which is also like Sam cassell's whole deal, right? Like describe how clutch damar has been late in these games. Look at those two buzzer beaters right. The first player in NBA history to hit buzzer beaters on back to back days. So the first night in Indiana, demar's walking the ball at the core with about 9 seconds to go and you know, he's getting his scream from buchevich, he's not exactly aware of how much time is on the clock. And thought he had a little bit more time to run another play. All of a sudden he looks up does not have enough time. He has to sort of let go of this one legged heave toward the basket. And that shot goes in. Throws it. Derozan delivers. And then the next night in D.C.. DeMarcus the ball, three seconds on the clock. Dribbles into the corner, he has the presence to pump fake because he knows he has a rookie guarding him that'll probably bite on his pump fake. He has another man that is jumping at him and he's able to just uncork a shot. Pay attention to make sure he's got his foot not on the line, not out of bounds. And hit another game winner. Derozan..

"I don't think they're a fifty one team but anywhere from like forty five forty seven. Forty eight wins. I could see the bulls is getting this year. It's sores real interesting. Because i do think the pacers are good litmus test for chicago because I think both the i would personally. I'm higher on chicago this year than than indiana part of that might make bias from from covering the team like a i. I think that you can look at it chicago. And so i think there i mean they have the best player in zach levine. I would say that he's the best player out of both teams personally I think overall you have just the the best collection of high talent and offensive talent Better self creation. I know that there are more questions about the defense. And i'm i. I'm not as questioning with indiana's defense. They're going to revert back to some better base stuff. This year lake just point being like. I think there's there's more there that you feel a little bit more comfortable with in In terms of higher level creation on the bulls. which is you know. That's not what everything deduces down to but to me. I think that matters a little bit more like like i. I would trust the Our trust the bulls if okay. Let's this it's a very herky-jerky wavell blake. If i give the bulls one possession to score in the half court compared to the pacers having a score one possession half court. I probably believe in. Let's say throwing coaches out like if we were playing straight rec league park you know. Ymca ymca i here. I trust in the bulls to throw out something that is going to result in a bucket. More often pacers And that's that might be like the most asinine way possible of looking at whether or not i will even a team. But i just think that the bulls just have a little bit more than i think is compelling to me in terms of higher talent. But i'm definitely changed up throughout the year. But i agree. Like and. That's just my estimation to like. I think this team i would agree. Like probably around sixty like i think my range with them in my preseason preview right now is like i think four to nine. I'd be shocked if they don't make the playing game. But i think it's entirely possible that they do end up in the plane like just given the way like if things really don't hit in some ways and things really hit for other teams or their injuries that you can't really see now that pop up which i hope don't but you know that's always a factor I think you could say that. But i also think if things really do click if the offense is awesome the defenses like seventeenth or eighteenth or something like that and they have a good stretch of health like i could very wealthy than being a top four seed army national. Just say for. I would be kinda surprised muscle behind that but as far as playoffs..

Her team is a great problem to have. I think the problem you had in washington. We saw what he did. In the bubble he really showed out but not having a consistent role and not having a specific specific instructions from the coach as to how he could get in and his minutes be consistent was something he struggle with washington when he got chicago. Billy said give me defense show. Just be a passed out there and he did. In as larry said he really started to to gain some confidence in some consistency until yet that injury some hoping that with that with that role in mind and a philosopher get healthy. He's really gonna have a great season so i know i know we're us three. Were more excited about role players the star players. Sometimes because they're they're less heralded But i think he's gonna be a really important coggin. Small forward has been something.

I think the first thing that i want to talk about before we get really nitty gritty is. What do you guys think about the defense. I wanna talk about the defense. I because i think i have gotten to a point where i am sort of just really hearing some of the conversations about the defense because i get it i understand and i'm not trying to sound Dismissive of people's opinions but at the same time. I think everyone's looking at this way too much through a playoff lens instead of saying. Hey this is the regular season. Schemes are different in the regular season. You're not to attack the same way in the regular season and it's just easier to construct a defense that is going to be a plus or at least average in the regular season So i guess alternate over. You guys chris. Let's start with you i mean. What are you guys. go both or something wherever. But where are you at the defense foreign kind of your expectations for this year. I feel similar to you. I'm a little bit perturbed at this point by. I think it's more about the narrative behind the defense. I think there's reasons to be concerned about defense but a lot of national media has been just outright. Dismissive of Has outdated opinion. I think of a few.

There should be real concerns about the Bulls front court heading into this upcoming season. I would say, absolute shot. But what I will say, is, despite the fact that the front court is a little lacking the truth is that what the Bulls for an office has done in this offseason rebuilding the entire roster for the most part, and I'll add Brian, just the fact that they were able to get something for Lowey Lowry marketing much less a first round pick, I'll be it lottery protected.

"What star. John rains that i am most associate with you. Which is servant leadership. And i'd love if you could describe your philosophy on servant leadership especially try to conceptualize it for much smaller organizations. What does it mean to serve leader as a ceo of a bunch of ceo's around the table how should they think about how that philosophy conform away they run their business so when i talk about servant leadership. It's frankly the the way. I learned to lead because i actually learned the lead in partnership a ban where you aren't really empowered to do anything to you have to earn the respect and the followership of others. You guys don't have that as founders. But i do think you'll find that. Many of the best leaders exhibited the principles servant leadership. And i just say how do i serve serve. The purpose of the organization serve the customers served. The employees serve the communities in which we operate in a jim collins called at level five leadership other people call from things. But it's when someone it's not about the leader it's about what it is. We are trying to accomplish right and some of the antithesis of what's hot silicon valley at different times the narrative. Always around the all-powerful founder. They're all powerful leader. And i think there's actually very few examples where that actually great sustainable companies come out of that my leadership role model for large parts of my career with phil jackson of the chicago bulls. Now it'd be steve kerr for your younger and would always struck me. He was able to do is get people who actually were better than he was klay. Together he got michael jordan. Scottie pippen dennis. Rodman caster characters to win six championships. It got shack kobe to play together. You look at you. Look at steve kerr the warriors right. Now he's getting.

"Can you guard and lebron. He can hold up strength wise. But if you have anybody at the one through three at this point. He gets over screens incredibly well. He's really intense. He's got long arms like just loved what we saw from in the bozo and i think having a clear star starting role for him as a lower usage guy fitting in while with paul booker and aden. He's about as good as you could hope for their and then offensively. He's a really smart cutter. He may lead the league in points off. Cuts playing with chris. Paul and devon booker and then the big thing with him coming out of college she was a really good three point shooter at villanova his stroke. Let's say kind of developed a bit of a hitch and that's started to smooth. Its way out not sure. If it's exactly villanova bridges still. But he's proven himself to be a three point shooter. I think he was up to thirty six or so percent. Imagine we can get a little bit higher but yeah you're absolutely right. I don't know if if he's necessarily strong enough at this point to shut down to lebron's of the world although who is but even add to throw it another player since the son seemed to play them all the time he just does a great job on luca danni lucas doug and put up his numbers. But there's a couple of times where we're mckell will make them look silly so even even a player that caliber you can stick them on there. They're still going to score. But you can feel really good about the job he's going to do. And then how do you see the rotation shaking out at the four and five position. Yeah i think that's one of the really interesting parts about this team. So you draft the player number ten overall. You think this might be your last top ten. Pick for for quite a while. And jalen smith and i just don't know where he fits in on this year's roster per se obviously deandra eight and you expect to be playing thirty thirty five something like that minutes game and then dario shirts really established himself as somebody who you who can be somewhat of an offensive fulcrum with the second unit. Just really thrived. I think he might have been their third leading score and the bubble something like that Third or fourth certainly and you. You want a decent number of his minutes to becoming there. And then you've got cam. Johnson and jay crowder. Who are probably going to soak up a good majority of the four minutes. So i just don't know where jalen smith's time this year's going to be that you know that's okay rookies. Generally aren't that great in their first year but I see yeah. I don't know who's gonna start per se and who's gonna close between cam and jae crowder but i imagine they're gonna take the majority of the minutes of the four along with some of the time at the three behind mckell and then Dario certainly we'll take some of the four minutes as well as hopefully getting a decent bit of his time at the five yet. You know my hope as we talk about smith. I in some of what i've watched. I've watched these entire games. Their i two preseason games in utah but smith played largely at the four there. Now that's because they've had absences from kreider and cam johnson and charge so they didn't really have anyone else there to start landing yesterday. Yeah yeah yeah and even chris. Paul played yesterday so they've been putting out a skeleton crew. But i did think smith show to me more off the bounce face up. Ability is playing the four then. I thought that he had and they didn't play them at. The five bucks was a lot of damian jones if damian jones place for this team that's going to be a major problem i my hope is just not expect that. Yeah but my hope is that i mean you would obviously you would want to go to charlotte at backup center as the bubble instead of demon jones. That's a if he's out there. Maybe he will be for a few games but a break. Glass emergency yeah or maybe sign someone else off the street shirley or that he was. He was He struggled with the atlanta hawks last year. And obviously with the golan words before that. But that's enough talk of damian. John so yeah. The smith is interesting. I mean the purported to be a room sector. He's very thin. Meant they would like to move a little bit. They passed on a lot of players. I think that would have been nice. Fits halliburton is one. That i think would have been really nice next to booker in that same kind of you know lengthened. Galway role except he can dribble and has a ton more size in passing ability. He so that he would have been a nice fit. We'll see whether john smith is worth or not but the question becomes you know and if he can face up and play the four with his shooting and maybe be able to put it on the floor little bit. that's ice. You have some secondary rim protection out there but then can he stay with guys on. The perimeter is a question mark and then you know you'd think he would slot in as a backup five but he did look pretty thin out there. We'll see whether that's actually able to do or not very and you're right. I was watching some of those preseason games. I was amazed his ability to take a guy off the gerbil. Just because you don't expect that from a guy his size and then also have fluid was shooting threes so he has the skills you would one of a guy who certainly hope eventually largely a backup five but who can also play the four. It's still..

"That and the renegotiation extension for levin would be run the order of twelve million or so in extra money this year we double check that basically your renegotiating him up to the max for this year yet which would be not Couldn't quite get him to that. That would be making nineteen point five this year so you get up to thirty one point five for this year. So that's basically new money that he can't get anywhere else. And then you get the extension on top of that. Which would be the max for four years so throw in another hundred fifty one million over that. So you're kind of looking at you through that renegotiation extension on there for what he could have gotten or extra actually getting this year that he just couldn't have gotten so that's about twelve million or so so you're talking about one hundred sixty three million over four years. That's pretty good. That's over forty million dollars a year on that renegotiation and extension essentially. It's i rambled on their salon. We actually lost danny for a second. But he's back now. And i laid out all the numbers. For vac levine renegotiation extension. What the opportunity cost is. Should the chicago bulls renegotiated and extended exactly. I think they should make the offer and levin he's improved a lot. He has established a level of play. This past year. That i didn't expect it living's twenty six. I think. I don't think he's to ever be like a super superstar. I doubt he'll make an deserve making an nba team. But he's a talented player. And the other reason why you make. Why afraid as you make the offer is because you need to know where zach levine stance and the otherwise. The extension system is sufficiently broken. That i think it would be totally reasonable for him to not to not one another extension to see where see what. The market will bear. And if levin isn't willing to renegotiation extension then. I think the bulls need to seriously think about whether they want him on their team. And that's kind of in some ways that's why you wanna have that conversation because you need to know his answer either way and i do think he's worth it but it's always more importantly you need to know whether he wants to do it instead of a catch twenty two because you think well it's all about being competitive with zach levine here. But we can't do as much to be competitive if we have to use cap space on renegotiating extending him but of course if you do that then you have him that glavine as had a very nice rise in terms of his level of improvement. And maybe there's an argument that this guy could be on the level of devon booker or bradley beal although he's not as young as booker but both same ages beal little bit younger than him and that he could be the guy running a very good offense and that sort of a player is potentially deserving of a max contract on the other hand. You made this move for nicole which rich the point of that was to be competitive last year whoops and to be competitive this year and then he's got one more year under contract out for that but he's getting a little bit older so that vuckovich move in some ways that's to placate levin but now you also have to placate him by renegotiating extending him and blunting the impact of the vuckovich move. Because now you can't put as many pieces random another. Maybe kind of compromise could be that the bulls wouldn't have to give him the absolute most amount of money that they could give him this year. All they would have to do is give him about seven million extra for this year. Get him up to about twenty six million and then he could still extend at the max over four years you could get one hundred twenty percent raise off of what they give him this year. That could get them up again. It'd be a little bit dicey in terms of like the cap going out with shouldn't say dicey but we'll inexact those numbers because we don't know what the capital be two years from now but it's not going to go up a ton we know that there's a limit to how much it can go up and the players are essentially still paying back all the pandemic losses to the owners. So that'd be the is. Maybe you could spend seven million of your cap space. And then if you move on from san taransky and stretch him or get off of that money entirely you can still have about fifteen million to work with and then also have the Room exception and that could be enough. Maybe to put a decent team on the floor next to your bring back thais although the whole thais and vuckovich playing together they tried that or tyson young playing together. Know it's not a. I don't know if that's exactly where i'd want to spend my money. If you're going to have young and may we'd go in another direction. Get a wing who can actually play little bit. In addition patrick williams. They also i think you want to open up some time for patrick williams at the four so i'm not sure that bring back. Thais is the best use of that money possibly. But he's a good player. And maybe the bus just player that they could get for that money even though he is another big. Which isn't the perfect fit for them. So that that might be a possibility. you know with zach levine. Be interested in doing that. I think that that might be. Maybe you make that offer at first and kinda see but the other thing too. Is i think if you just play it out with levin you can still offer him the five year deal you can offer them the supermax if he makes all and frankly if he doesn't make all nba like do you really. Are you like oh man like you're you're probably wasn't that great sometimes guys. Just don't make on be because the competition that thirteen guard is always difficult..

I'm building great. Long life relationships. That have been helped you so much and even the worst times in generations. But you're you're able to obviously with having people around you get through which is thank thank you for sharing that tells about the mccain. Makina hat might be different from the japan past. Maybe it's a little bit different than being on assistant. Coach still very similar. And how do you see that house that role been for you in really being a first step to the nba right. Oh i've been lucky enough to still keep myself in shape enough to help the players physically on the floor and i that that's where I became assets. Coaching staffs that. I worked under i and that that's gave me opportunity to really learn what coaching in the nba is about.

I take pride in feeling. Like i help with the player you know when you when you watch a god playing something that you worked on with them in the past days or weeks or something that you talked about over the off season may imply it gives you a sense of pry anna. You know. we're we're always root for the guys who also we. We want to to give them things to help them play better to win the game that we have right now right game specific things and then we work on things that will help them as their careers progressed. Down the line right so so we're here to keep you talk about players as tools. Keep the tool sharp. You make sure they're confident with their abilities are held to identify where their weaknesses are. And and i think that's my equities. Coaching and being a former player has helped me Cutting so in that way to think about how not not just your experiences plan all that but also time ended with what you've done in the video room as an assistant coach last year with the nets. There's so much so many things that go that go into what makes unique as a player coach..

P.E. Teacher Becomes Full-Time Sports Gear Reseller
"Today in our latest feature will hear from a teacher who buys and resells sports gear. I love to look at stories of simple reselling. Because as i said simple. These are very simple projects. That are important to highlight. Because it's something that most people can do if you're out there and you're like totally new to the whole world. This is a great thing to jump into. I think The guy we're going to hear from. Today matt his total startup cost with something like one hundred dollars actually makes his first profit by selling his own stuff like his own. Jerseys kind of reminds me how. I was selling my own items from around my apartment more than twenty years ago when i got into this kind of thing and eventually for him. He ends up going all in with. This action retires from teaching to focus on his re-selling dig his businesses. Going really. well he's doing up to eight thousand dollars a month or so. He's managed this all throughout the pandemic of course so he's got some good lessons about time management etc. Now we. I heard from matt nearly two years ago in the original story Let's now hear directly from him. And i'll come back at the end. Perhaps share a story or two from my own re-selling years little quick trip down memory lane along with some advice for you. If you'd like to get into this to no matter how much you sell ship station makes it super easy to manage ship your orders from all your sales channels faster cheaper and more efficiently. They have been helping many of our listeners. For four years now ship station you'll spend a lot less time on shipping a lot more time growing your business in no matter where you sell amazon oetzi.

Click the microphone at the top and type in hustle that is ship station com offer code hustle. Make shit happen. My name's matthew myers. We are located in indianapolis indiana on the north side of town. My side hustle from seven. Twenty seven was kevin's lockouts instill as epa clubhouse side. Hustle is a resale sports in store. So i essentially. I had goodwill's stores scrap sales markets and then essentially resell gently used sports fan gear. And it's pretty much anything ranging from palace pros From both ear to cycling ear to winter jackets could be anything from maki North face to to the old nineteen ninety a starter jacket. Everybody has the chicago bulls one that we all grew up more so i always try to find the brand. The brand names let everyone tries to buy but off discount and then obviously compared to larger with nike and medicine and things like that. So essentially i just i go to stores deal mainly for stores buy low sell high and try to offer big products to people and it seems to save to be working where people are always gonna be wearing that either to a game and obviously you really go into games right out. During a pandemic people like wearing that stuff going on their favorite team. I started this back in two thousand seventeen of between teaching jobs. I left my previous school for a new teaching opportunity. But i was also unemployed needed cash so i kinda just sold things on the side that i wasn't using it like an old jersey so i sold an old chicago cubs jersey for seventy bucks tonight. Said well you know. Maybe maybe something to this. So i'm going to sell an i. I probably had thirty forty jerseys. I want i sold them. Georgia this cycle a mortgage. And i was like okay. Well they sold pretty quick. You know maybe maybe this is something. I can actually take off and run with and actually create business but you know between north korea and mainly will be clothes. I've been able to manage to make profit enough where i can officially retired from teaching. And make this slimane hustle. I before i left. I needed to see the numbers on my end of a meghan. You know five six thousand a month okay. You know sales growth sales. So i knew that i was it. Was it was a good enough jump to to try to make this full-time gig. And i'm lucky to last year's at it has even with my biggest challenge right now is that now. It's time time time though is going to be a challenge. I think i think a lot of people will tell you that My my i love working at night. And i'm kind of like a night out precise so i'll let you everything done late at night. Then as morning hits you know it's hard to get up at seven eight o'clock and try to figure out you know. Hey i need to get all this stuff done before. I don't know four and get my orders out so just trying to be more productive trying to be better on my time. Let's old spent my biggest challenge and going into this year. I wanted to really make make that my project per se of like you know what it's time to get up. It's time to be productive. It's time to get to the stores. The fun part about all this is that you can go on thrift and you can go and find all the stuff. The hard part is get it all up getting listed getting measured and then getting shipped out with someone. That's that's always the nasa art so just trying to balance both has been tough but again realizing that this is my full time job like there is no teaching job anymore. They're in snow. Kindergarteners coming in for p. Like just to be completely focused on everything. I think so far it's only been seven days of twenty-three one pasha thank you so much matt really appreciate that update So glad to know what's going so well you've been able to make it your full-time gig check out.

"If you wanna be a little bit more conservative see what it looks like on the billy donovan for the first thirty games Wherever the trade deadline may At that point. Maybe larry convinces you that. He works with zach that he works with kirby win dell under the new coaching staff at cetera. On ninety two be To all situations. I think it's rock decided. Now you have to wait to see how these guys look on billy donovan. Everything's argument fluid. Personally fall is able to get another top seven right. Pick in his. Draw larry martin. I would probably swimming That ofeibea materializes but if the knicks when it comes to the bulls For mocking all the pistons pick seven alarm optional inside than not something out consider. But i'm sure a lot of bills fans wouldn't but some of you just have to do a lot of situations at this point. Heck i would be good with ten from phoenix or new orleans. First rounder as well. And i think he'd be a good fit either of those teams as kind of like even just playing like dario saric floors facing type role like if easy massive upgrade on nickel o'malley for the pelicans in meli played great with zion last year so I think there are teams. That would be interested especially given what we've seen but it's it remains to be seen. What the front office is interested in doing going forward. Yeah yet it's going to be interesting situation. Block against on the sky thinking theme randomly. If if i could get the hands on two picks in saw the top. Let's say and if you give you can get a lake. God or wing and you can get someone like denny let says well and add those two plays to kirby zach and wendelin. That gets interesting to me. And it just changes the tom on the radio to change the profile of the radio. But if you can get Minute pal or By fostering small up more To me that's interesting sir. Yet it could go a number of ways a the surprised if they tried him under off. Not that that's something. I think that should be considered. Yeah yeah. I think it's interesting to just kind like looking at the parallels for teams like I mentioned that. Cover the pacers. Like it's the very similar thing that i look at with With wendell and lowery like we don't know about the fit but with with domus in milestone. I know about the fit. I've watched them for two years like of course we're we're on the verge of running back which i'm very apprehensive about But again like it brings up the same thing okay..

Both the first one that came out with that was a just the curse of chicago Always is always go to your always. Wanna see that on the jersey side. They've gone away from that this time around. Which is kind of annoying as far as the bulls have those black jerseys just sitting there waiting to be to be used the black pinstripe jerseys. Doing something that would be always fun.

"Boomer Jason Commander Former Saint Ignatius College prep student and writer for busing. Brackets former former. Right it is it is and you are my son. I am yourself so typically this is where I would say. We don't always get along but our mutual love. Sports brings us together but Jason. I both agree. The last dance has given us so much to talk. It's been crazy decent. What's your reactions to the last dance which we have been watching on? Espn throughout our pandemic shelter at home. No sports on first off. I want to offer up a disclaimer. You Typically Fall Asleep about halfway through the second episode of the night. So why are you? I mean it's it's it's true it is typically we start out the watching it with four people in the living room and I'm typically the last man standing so Anyway anyway my thoughts are. I think it's really cool to look back at the season. Obviously I wasn't around back then so it's like a nice little look back in time. There's a lot of stuff fat when you when you're told about Michael Jordan when you hear about the legacy that you don't know unless you you WANNA learn about Michael Jordan. You don't know about the gambling you don't necessarily know about his father's death about him as a teammate. About the altercations about how little he actually enjoyed being a celebrity and playing basketball towards the end of his career. Little stuff besides the winning and the moments that everyone remembers has been the coolest for me on top of some of the people that have been featured Isaiah. Thomas Charles Barkley Kobe Bryant. Who's really cool to see? Barack Obama. Justin Timberlake Bill Clinton. They've had everybody on here. It's so cool seeing the opinions and and the the stories from all these people that you really don't know how much they have to do with Michael Jordan until you see them in the documentary and it all sorts make sense so I have to say that you brought up the Kobe Bryant I. I felt uncomfortable. I didn't I I know you had you have to include that. I just felt I just felt uncomfortable. I felt so soon since his tragic death In the helicopter accident that I cringed when it came on but my favorite so far has been the Isaiah. Thomas I mean I loved seeing the true hatred coming out of Michael I. I've never heard him swear so much. It was hysterical and you could just. I thought that that was the best. So far that they've done was how they portrayed the hatred for Isaiah Thomas and the Pistons at the time In Ninety one I was working at Chicago no I was working at. Espn in Bristol. Connecticut and I was a production assistant and I along with Mike. Zero were the to Chicago production assistance and so we would sit and watch the Bulls Games. You know obviously all the as as we were. You're watching your in these screening rooms and you're watching every game and you're assigned one game while I would never get the bulls because I was new typically got like a tennis match or something like that back then Mike Zero. I would be cheering and screaming because we were the to Chicago Bulls fans at the time and I came home from working at ESPN. In Ninety. Two I went and worked the Olympics. I was Andrea Kramer's associate producer her feel producer for the stories that she did covering the Dream Team in California which is where they were practising before they went over to the Olympics and so that year in ninety two I worked Freelancing as a field producer for ESPN. After I came home to Chicago and so I had that that was my second way of learning the team and then in ninety three I got hired by CRTV Chicago and television and so I got to cover them from ninety three on. And it's been for me. It is just a walk down Memory Lane. I JUST. I can't get over that it's been that long ago it just blows my mind that it's been twenty seven years you know it's amazing. I love it. It's really it's been really fun. It's a what stands out the most you. Jason I think what stands out the most mu just like the pure greatness of the team all the trials and tribulations they had to make it through In order to achieve an incredible feat people don't understand how hard it is to win a championship in any sport to do it. Three times in a row twice in the same decade is pretty incredible. Um suggest see how that all came together and see all the different moving parts all the different personalities. All the different instances happenings games the everything seeing it all come together in the way that it's been portrayed. I think has been the coolest for me so for me my first on Air Job. Chicagoland Television in Chicago and I'm covering the the third of the Bulls. I three p the first three championship titles and I mean how fortunate was I just? That's how it is you cover championships. I covered three more after that. You assume that's just how it is so in a way when you are so young covering it. It's you just assume that this is what the rest of your career is going to be like. So how men were. We lucky it was just incredible..
