REBUILDING THE BULLS

The Chicago Bulls, once an NBA dynasty. Lead by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman. Winning championships every single season. These days though, they aren’t doing as well. Stuck with young players getting better, when will the once great basketball team get back their past glory?

I wish you all the best trying to rebuild this shithole because what they have going for them other than Lavine and Markannen isnt great. Wendell Carter has potential but he's still only a Sophomore, Otto Porter is extremely inconsistent and that contract is just terrible, while the rest of the team are a whole bunch of average to below average NBA Players. Good luck with this George, hopefully you can make some good moves and decisions to get this team back on track

REBUILDING THE BULLS

POST SEASON

Player Retirements - Vince Carter, Dirk Nowitzki, Jamal Crawford, Tyson Chandler, Nene, Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver

HOF Inductees - Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade, Vince Carter

Draft Lottery Results

1) Mavericks
2) Cavaliers
3) Grizzlies
4) Knicks
5) Suns
6) Bulls
7) Hawks
8.) Wizards
9) Pelicans
10) Celtics (Via MIN)
11) Lakers
12) Heat
13) Celtics (Via SAC)
14) Hornets

Quite a disappointing draft lottery as we end up with the 6 pick. We desperately need a guard so I am going to try and trade up to get Ja Morant or RJ Barrett. If we can’t then we just have to hope someone falls to us like Coby White or Keldon Johnson.

Staff Signing

During the staff signing period, we sacked our head coach and signed Michael Stauffer. We also tried to get a trainer as currently we had none. We ended up getting Sean Lee.

NBA DRAFT

1) Mavericks select Ja Morant
2) Cavaliers select Zion Williamson
TRADE ALERT!
Memphis Grizzlies trade their 3rd overall pick to the Cavaliers for Kevin Love and a 2021 1st round lottery protected pick
3) Cavaliers select Nickeil Alexander-Walker
TRADE ALERT!
New York trade their 4th pick and Mitchell Robinson to Chicago for the 6 pick, Kris Dunn and the 38 pick.
4) Bulls select RJ Barrett
5) Suns select Coby White
6) Knicks select Sekou Doumbouya
7) Hawks select DeAndre Hunter
8.) Wizards select Rui Hachimura
9) Pelicans select Darius Garland
10) Celtics select Keldon Johnson
11) Lakers select Cam Reddish
12) Heat select Jarrett Culver
13) Celtics select Brandon Clarke
14) Hornets select Bol Bol

Player/Team Options & Qualifying Offers

We had 2 players on team options, as both of their contracts are small we decided to resign both Walter Lemon Jr and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Players That Rejected Their Options

Kevin Durant
Kawhi Leonard
Kyrie Irving
Jimmy Butler
Julius Randle
Khris Middleton

TRADE ALERT!
Chicago Bulls trade Otto Porter to the Los Angeles Clippers for Landry Shamet and Rodney McGruder.

We made this trade to free up cap space, giving up a big contract to get 2 very small contracts.

Free Agency

We still needed a PG, so we went in for Kyrie, Kemba and D’Angelo. Kyrie resigned with the Celtics, Brooklyn matched our contract offer to D’Angelo and Kemba resigned in Charlotte. This meant we were left unable to get a star point guard, so we signed Derrick Rose on a one year deal worth 19 mil. We also got Lance Stephenson and Trey Burke to help our depth.


Training Camps

Lauri Markkanen - Untapped Potential
Wendell Carter Jr - Untapped Potential

TRADE ALERT!

Chicago Bulls trade Denzel Valentine and Cristiano Felicio to the Miami Heat for Kelly Olynyk.

Wow you absolutely robbed the Knicks in that trade lmao. You got R.J. Barrett out of it and picked up Mitchell Robinson as well a young Center who I believe is going to be a defensive beast in the years to come. Giving up Kris Dunn was tough but getting Derrick Rose on one year deal helps you fill that hole for a year and getting that Otto Porter contract off your books was another really good move. I'd say this is a very successful offseason for you George and now you have a strong young team to build around for the future

SEASON OVERVIEW

The season started shakily, we were losing games early on, probably down to the low chemistry of the team. We managed to pull it back but we didn’t get above .500 for the entire of 2019. Going into the new year we sat at a record of 14-19. Our team chemistry was at 84% and we were the 9 seed. Getting in the playoffs was an option, but we needed to do well.

As we approached the trade deadline, we managed to pull things back and get above .500. Although we didn’t have any all stars in our roster we managed to get a record of 28-25. We decided not to make any changes to the roster, as we sat as the 6th seed.

However, when things began to look better for us, we went on a horrible losing streak. A month after having a positive record, we ended up at 31-39 and at the 10 seed. As this point we decided to give our experienced players less minutes and give more to our younger players so we could try and get as high as a pick as possible.

 

At the end of the season we ended up with a losing record of 33-49 and as the 12th seed in the east. The season awards finished as follows:

MVP - Stephen Curry 37.5 Points 6.8 Rebounds 7.6 Assists
ROTY - Zion Williamson 21.9 Points 8.3 Rebounds 5.2 Assists 2 Steals 2 Blocks

REBUILDING THE BULLS

POST SEASON 2020-21

Player Retirements - Zach Randolph, Pau Gasol, Joe Johnson, J.J. Barea

Draft Lottery Results

1) Orlando Magic
2) New York Knicks
3) Chicago Bulls
4) Indiana Pacers
5) Minnesota Timberwolves
6) Charlotte Hornets
7) Brooklyn Nets
8.) Phoenix Suns
9) Celtics (Via MEM)
10) San Antonio Spurs
11) Los Angeles Clippers
12) Detroit Pistons
13) Los Angeles Lakers
14) Hawks (Via DAL)

Amazing draft lottery for us, potentially we could draft a Point Guard, or look into trading the pick for an established superstar.

Staff Signing

Only one change for us as we sign Kuba Gooding a great Head Scout.

NBA Draft

1) Magic select Anthony Edwards
2) Knicks select Isaiah Stewart
3) Bulls select R.J. Hampton
4) Pacers select James Wiseman
5) Timberwolves select LaMelo Ball
6) Hornets select Ochai Agbaji
7) Nets select Jalen Smith
8.) Suns select Bryan Antoine
9) Celtics select Cole Anthony
10) Spurs select Precious Achiuwa
11) Clippers select Kahlil Whitney
12) Pistons select Theo Maledon
13) Lakers select Trendon Watford
14) Hawks select Scottie Lewis


Great draft for us, we finally patch the hole in our team that was the Point Guard position, allowing us to let Derrick Rose walk in free agency. We also drafted two Shooting Guards in the second round: Tyler Bey and Marcos Louzado-Silva.

Player/Team Options

Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr, Mitchell Robinson, Landry Shamet and Chandler Hutchinson were all under team options. We accepted all of them for 2 years apart from Lauri who is on 1 year. Kelly Olynyk also accepted his player option. Whilst this isn’t terrible for us it also isn’t good as he takes up 13 mil of our cap space, perhaps we will look into trading him.

Free Agency

We had a couple of free agents, we let Derrick Rose, Lance Stephenson, Trey Burke and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot all walk. Meanwhile we signed Kelly Oubre Jr, Shabazz Napier and Mike Scott. So we had backups and because we needed 14 players.

Training Camps

Zach LaVine - Perimeter Shooting
R.J. Hampton - Combo Guard

TRADE ALERT!

Chicago Bulls trade Chandler Hutchinson, 2022 1st round top 10 protected, 2021 2nd round NO swap best (CHI), 2022 2nd round CHI swap best (DET), 2024 2nd round unprotected to the Washington Wizards for 2021 1st round unprotected, P.J. Washington and 2023 1st round lottery protected.

SEASON OVERVIEW

Things started off well for us, getting a good few wins under our belt early on. We had a good record at 14-7 but then we had a 9 game loss streak and now we sit in a poor position at 16-18 and sitting at the 9th position in the east.

 

Things started to get better for us heading towards the all star break. Getting up onto 26-26 when the all star captains were announced. Yet again we had no all star players and we were in a precarious position.

 

We were extremely inconsistent for the rest of the season, ending up with a 38-44 record, missing out on playoff basketball by 1 game. Our losses came in groups and our wins by themselves. Here are the season awards -

MVP - James Harden 32.6 Points 6.4 Rebounds 9.4 Rebounds 2 Steals
ROTY - LaMelo Ball 19.1 Points 2.5 Rebounds 7.2 Assists 2 Steals

REBUILDING THE BULLS

Post Season 2021-22

Player Retirements - Carmelo Anthony, Zaza Pachulia, J.J. Redick, Trevor Ariza

Hall Of Fame Inductees - Carmelo Anthony

Draft Lottery Results

1) Brooklyn Nets
2) Los Angeles Clippers (Via MIA)
3) Indiana Pacers
4) San Antonio Spurs
5) Los Angeles Clippers
6) Toronto Raptors
7) Orlando Magic
😎 Charlotte Hornets
9) Chicago Bulls
10) Golden State Warriors
11) Memphis Grizzlies
12) Portland Trail Blazers
13) New York Knicks (Via DAL)
14) Sacramento Kings
15) Chicago Bulls (Via WAS)

We have a lottery pick and a pick just outside the lottery, potentially may look into trading these picks for someone else.

 

Staff Signings

We only needed a CFO so we snapped up Benjamin Harrison who has an A Business and a C Potential.

NBA Draft

1) Nets select Evan Mobley
2) Clippers select Jalen Green
3) Pacers select Armando Bacot
4) Spurs select Jalen Johnson
5) Clippers select Isaiah Todd
TRADE ALERT!
Toronto trade their 6th pick to the Nuggets for Jamal Murray.
6) Nuggets select Greg Brown III
7) Magic select Jalen Suggs
😎 Hornets select Josh Christopher
TRADE ALERT!
Chicago trade Zach LaVine and the 9th pick to Washington for John Wall.
9) Wizards select Adam Miller
10) Warriors select B.J. Boston
11) Grizzlies select Scottie Barnes
12) Trail Blazers select Isaiah Jackson
13) Knicks select Moses Moody
14) Kings select Khalifa Diop
15) Bulls select Kai Jones

A pretty successful draft for us I would say. Playing with LaVine doesn’t seem to be working so we traded him away for John Wall. We also got a backup Power Forward that we needed with the 15 pick as Kelly Olynyk is a free agent.

Team Options

We only had team options this year, as we accept R.J. Barrett’s 2 year team option and the 1 year team options for Wendell Carter Jr, Mitchell Robinson, Landry Shamet and Tyler Bey.

TRADE ALERT!

We instantly flip John Wall due to his large contract. Trading him and Shabazz Napier to Brooklyn for D’Angelo Russell and Davis Bertans.

Free Agency


Not much for us to do at all, we let Walter Lemon Jr walk and we managed to resign Lauri for his qualifying offer of 9 mil. We also had to sign Shaun Livingston and Mathew Dellavedova so we had enough players.

Training Camps

R.J. Hampton - Combo Guard
D’Angelo Russell - Perimeter Defense

I like turning Zach Lavine into D'Angelo Russell and then pairing him in the back court with R.J. Barrett. I think this is the year the bulls make the playoffs and maybe get out of the first round because that young core is looking strong especially with R.J and Lauri and Wendell Carter all having some more experience under their belts. Delly and Livingston are good veteran signings but I'm not sure they can add anything on the court anymore. Looking forward to seeing how the upcoming season shapes up

SEASON OVERVIEW

Another disappointing start to the season, stuck with a negative record yet again to begin the season. We needed to do something to try and turn things around. So we traded R.J. Hampton and Shaun Livingston to the Mavericks for Ja Morant and Seth Curry.

Despite our incredibly poor start to the season, we managed to get our first all star in D’Angelo Russell but our record continued to plummet. But we recovered the season slightly and managed to end the season with a 39-43 record. Another poor season saw us finish one game off the playoffs again. The end of season awards were as follows:

MVP - Stephen Curry 33 Points 4 Rebounds 9 Assists 1.7 Steals

However, both Robinson and Dellavedova rejected their qualifying offers. Shabazz Napier was also resigned after being traded away. We also resigned Walter Lemon Jr, Aron Baynes, Terry Rozier and Dwayne Bacon as we didn’t have enough players.

SEASON OVERVIEW

Our season started a little shakily, we stuck around the .500 mark for the first 3 months of the season. We weren’t able to get any win streaks together, and our losses came in bunches. Despite this, we entered the new year with a record slightly above .500.

We tried to keep the intensity up and continue to pick up wins. We managed to maintain our positive record up to the all-star game. Where both D’Angelo Russell and Ja Morant were named as all-stars.

However, this seemed to be deceiving, as soon as the all-star game had concluded we had a 10 game losing streak and had to start from .500 all over again. However we ended the season strong and finally got our first positive record at 46-36. We finally were back in the playoffs at the 5 seed facing Boston. Here are the end of season awards:

Playoff Summary

The playoffs started off against the Boston Celtics. It was a tough back and forth series, we lost game one and game two in overtime. But wins in games 3 and 4 ties the series up. However, Boston took the lead again in game 5, but we were able to get games 6 and 7 to win the series.

After beating Boston, we faced the #1 seed Orlando team. We managed to steal game one on the road, but Orlando then won game two. We managed to give ourselves a 3-1 lead after winning games 3 and 4 at home. There started Orlandos comeback as the won games 5 and 6 to tie the series at 3 games each. However, a near triple double in game 7 gave us the win in the series.

The conference finals was our next challenge, against the New York Knicks. We won game one, but then lost 3 in a row. Things looked bleak but then Ja Morant and D’Angelo Russell went off, both averaging 30 a game in the next 3 games in the series and getting us another win in 7 games.

Lastly the finals, against the warriors with Steph Curry and Jayson Tatum. We lost games one and two. But bounced back in games three and four to tie the series. But, then Steph Curry happened, he got 40 points to give the Warriors a 3-2 series lead. We managed to force a game 7 at home though, a game in which we blew out the Warriors and won the title. A four year rebuild is over, as the Chicago Bulls are finally on top of the basketball world once again.

The Dallas Mavericks, one of three Texan teams in the NBA. Some say the forgotten NBA team, everyone talks about the Spurs under Pop, Harden and Hakeem with Houston. But what about Dallas? Ever since winning the Championship in 2011 they haven’t done much. Could they return to the glory days?

REBUILDING THE MAVERICKS

POST SEASON

Player Retirements - Vince Carter, Dirk Nowitzki, Jamal Crawford, Tony Parker, Kyle Korver

Hall Of Fame Inductees - Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter

Draft Lottery Results

1. Phoenix Suns
2. Dallas Mavericks
3. Chicago Bulls
4. New York Knicks
5. Cleveland Cavaliers
6. Atlanta Hawks
7. Washington Wizards
8. New Orleans Pelicans
9. Boston Celtics (Via MEM)
10. Boston Celtics (Via MIN)
11. Los Angeles Lakers
12. Miami Heat
13. Boston Celtics (Via SAC)
14. Charlotte Hornets

Amazing draft lottery for us, putting us in a great position to get the Point Guard we need. Also ensuring we actually got our first round pick.

Staff Signing

Instantly I decided to fire Rick Carlisle, I signed Michael Stauffer to replace him. I also signed Nicholas Foster so we had a good trainer. We also got a new Assistant GM and Head Scout in Cody Maxwell and Don Carter.

NBA Draft

1. Suns select Ja Morant
2. Mavericks select Zion Williamson
3. Bulls select Sekou Doumbouya
4. Knicks select Coby White
5. Cavaliers select DeAndre Hunter
6. Hawks select Darius Garland
7. Wizards select R.J. Barrett
8. Pelicans select Jaxson Hayes
9. Celtics select Cam Reddish
10. Celtics select Bol Bol
11. Lakers select Romeo Langford
12. Heat select Jarrett Culver
13. Celtics select Tyler Herro
14. Hornets select Rui Hachimura

A good draft for us, although Ja was taken first it meant Zion fell to us. We will try to move things around to get Zion in the starting 5, but if we can’t then we will try to move him for a Point guard. We also drafted Ky Bowman in the second round a young Point Guard who will be spending time in the G-League.

Free Agency

An extremely active free agency full of signings, releasing players and making trades sees us with almost an entirely new roster. I would go through each individual thing but it would take too long, so I am going to list all of the players we now have: Nikola Mirotic, Jonas Valanciunas, Dennis Schroder, T.J. McConnell, Joakim Noah, Kyle Anderson, Pattirck Patterson, J.R. Smith, Wilson Chandler and Troy Daniels

Training Camps

Zion Williamson - Perimeter Shooting
Luka Doncic - Athleticism

SEASON OVERVIEW

Things started off a little shaky for us. Our young big three struggled at the start of the season. But after some early season struggles we found our feet and went into the new year at 19-14. We used the momentum we gained in late 2019 at the start of 2020 as we went on an impressive run. Because of this we had one all-star: Zion Williamson. We continued to pick up wins throughout the remainder of the season as we ended with a positive record thanks to our big three of Porzingis, Doncic and Zion. Our 46-36 record being good enough to get us the 4th seed in the Western Conference facing the Denver Nuggets. The end of season rewards were as follows:

MVP James Harden - 33 Points 5.7 Rebounds 8 Assists 2 Steals
ROTY Zion Williamson - 21 Points 9.5 Rebounds 5.7 Assists 2 Steals 2 Blocks

REBUILDING THE MAVERICKS

Post Season

Player Retirements - Pau Gasol, Zaza Pachulia, David West, Shaun Livingston

 

Draft Lottery Results

1. Minnesota Timberwolves
2. Miami Heat
3. New York Knicks
4. Brooklyn Nets
5. Memphis Grizzlies
6. Charlotte Hornets
7. Orlando Magic
8. Indiana Pacers
9. Detroit Pistons
10. Portland Trail Blazers
11. Sacramento Kings
12. Phoenix Suns
13. Los Angeles Lakers
14. Utah Jazz

TRADE ALERT!
The Dallas Mavericks trade Dennis Schroder to the Utah Jazz for a 2021 unprotected first round pick and a 2022 unprotected first round pick.

NBA Draft

1. Timberwolves select R.J. Hampton
2. Heat select LaMelo Ball
3. Knicks select Anthony Edwards
4. Nets select Jaden McDaniels
5. Grizzlies select James Wiseman
6. Hornets select Jalen Smith
7. Magic select Cole Anthony
8. Pacers select Scottie Lewis
9. Pistons select Theo Maledon
10. Trail Blazers select Ayo Dosunmu
TRADE ALERT!
The Sacramento Kings trade their 11th pick to the Mavericks for Nikola Mirotic.
11. Mavericks select Nico Mannion
12. Suns select Isaiah Mobley
13. Lakers select Killian Hayers
TRADE ALERT!
The Utah Jazz trade their 14th pick to the Miami Heat for Justice Winslow and Dwyane Wade.
14. Heat select Samuell Williamson

A pretty decent draft for us, we didn’t have the rights to our own first round pick, so I decided to free up some cap space and get a decent pick in the Mirotic trade. Getting Mannion means we have a good young Point Guard for the future too.

Team Options

We decided to accept both of our team options. A two year one for Luka Doncic and a 1 year for Ky Bowman.

 

TRADE ALERT!

To clear up more cap space for free agency. I traded Ky Bowman and Kyle Anderson to Miami for their 2023 and 2024 first round picks.

Free Agency

Another stacked free agency ful off signings, started off with us signing one of the bigger name free agents in Julius Randle. Giving us an amazing asset. We also signed Kelly Oubre Jr to replace Nikola Mirotic as our 6th man. After that we didn’t have much money left, so we filled out the squad with players who would make up our bench, they were: Shabazz Napier, E’Twaun Moore, Jonas Jerebko, Joakim Noah, Maxi Kleber, Patrick Mills, Eric Gordon and Ekpe Udoh. Although our first 7 players seemed good, the rest were poor.

SEASON OVERVIEW

Things started off rough, although we maintained a positive record, we were only ever slightly positive. Possible due to how poor our bench was performing. In the middle of December we had a 15-13 record and I decided to put some trades together to get a good bench.

TRADE ALERT!
The Dallas Mavericks trade Patrick Mills, E’Twaun Moore and a 2025 unprotected first round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers for Louis Williams and Bobby Portis.

TRADE ALERT!
The Dallas Mavericks trade their 2022 1st round pick from the Utah Jazz, Eric Gordon and Jonas Jerebko to the Brooklyn Nets for Rodions Kurucs and Malcolm Delaney.

TRADE ALERT!
The Dallas Mavericks have traded Joakim Noah, Ekpe Udoh and a 2023 2nd round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Moritz Wagner and Marvin Williams.

TRADE ALERT!
The Dallas Mavericks trade Julius Randle and a 2021 1st round pick from the Jazz to the Jazz for Rudy Gobert and a 2025 unprotected 1st round pick.

After the trades, our chemistry plummeted but we still managed to get wins. We now had 4 90+ rated players in Rudy Gobert, Zion Williamson, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. At the all-star draft our record sat at 34-20 and we were the 6 seed. We also had 2 all-stars in Kristaps Porzingis and Zion Williamson, with Julius Randle also making the all-star game but we had traded him away. At this point we got offered the best trade I have ever seen.

TRADE ALERT!
The Chicago Bulls have offered to trade Lauri Markkanen and Kevin Heurter to the Dallas Mavericks for Nico Mannion and Kelly Oubre Jr.

Although this trade did mess with our rotation a little bit, we accepted it. We now had 5 all-star calibre players in our team and possibly the best 6th man ever. From here on in, our record fluctuated but we managed to finish with a positive record at 48-34 to end the season. Here are the end of season awards:

MVP - Giannis Antetokounmpo 30 Points 10 Rebounds 6 Assists 2 Steals 2 Blocks
ROTY - LaMelo Ball 20 Points 3 Rebounds 9 Assists 2 Steals

Playoff Summary

We had high hopes going into the playoffs, and we met those hopes in the first round beating the six seed Phoenix Suns team. The second round was much harder against James Harden and the Houston Rockets. As they fought hard. However we fought harder getting a 3-1 lead, somehow they managed to fight back to 3-3 but we won game 7.

Next up was the conference finals, against the NBA finalists from the previous season, the Oklahoma City Thunder. The series was tight with both teams winning our home games. Meaning going into game 5 the series was tied at 2-2. Oklahoma managed to take a 3-2 series lead before we managed to win our last home game and steal one on the road to win and advance to the finals.

The finals was surprisingly easier than our previous two rounds. As we won the NBA in 6 games against a Giannis Antetokounmpo lead Milwaukee Bucks. As after losing games 1 and 2 we came back and won 4 games in a row to win the NBA. With Zion Williamson being our finals MVP.

So finally, the forgotten team in Texas are back on top of the NBA. With a strong core that could win a few more titles and become an NBA dynasty.

This is going to be an interesting rebuild, just looking at the team there is absolutely nothing to be excited for at all. When your best player is Deandre Jordan you know that their is a problem. Hopefully the lottery and Free Agency helps NYK out because damn this team needs something to be excited about. Looking forward to this one George
