I think you guys need to listen to Zach Lowe discuss the bulls on his most recent podcast.

1. He doesn't get why people are saying they're going to be good offensively. Doesn't think that team is going to be a top 12 offensive team. Lavine and jabari can both score but they aren't really good points per possession players. That's going to prevent them from being above average on offense. 

2. "Lavine and jabari aren't bad on defense, they're comically bad on defense. Lavine is bad. Jabari is clueless... As bad a defensive player as I've seen in the NBA... If you're 28, 29, 30 on defense and don't have LeBron it's going to be hard to win against anybody."

The thing is, their main scorers have middling efficiencies. Our players generally match or exceed their efficiency while also, generally again, being able to play defense.

Our rotation is currently

Augustin Grant

Ross or Simmons and vice versa

Fournier

Gordon Isaac

Vucevic bamba

The 10th man might be briscoe stealing some minutes as both he and Grant are big enough to play some sg.

I hope to god Ross starts. Simmons just fits way better as an aggressive second unit guy. 

And that line up just looks like the same old.  Can’t wait for Vuc to pack his bags.

Sigh. I hate that Vuc is starting and gonna have a huge role again, but you’re right, he is/will. Also think Birch being out of the rotation is a shame

I thought the idea a few years back was that the Fournier experiment at 3 failed miserably when Oladipo was playing 2.  So does above !ineup have Fournier back at 3.  I feel

 If that is the case I see failure #2 coming.  Is not insanity defined as doing the same thing again and expecting different results?

Fournier has split time at the three his entire career in Orlando.
