The Chicago Bulls are still looking for their first win on 2019 and it doesn’t seem to be coming anytime soon. The Bulls star shooting guard, Zach Lavine, is sick and tired of losing and confused on why it keeps happening.
The Chicago Bulls have lost 10 games in a row and most of them have been beatdowns. This team seems to be lost out on the court, which spells doom for this young squad.
Zach LaVine: "Something is obviously wrong. We weren't losing by double digits earlier in the season. We might've been losing but we didn't even have a full roster. I don't know. We're a better team now. And we're getting blown out. It doesn't make a lot of sense."

One could make the argument that this team should be improving as the season goes on. Lauri Markkanen is healthy, Zach LaVine is healthy, and Kris Dunn is healthy. The team’s young guns are finally logging minutes together and trying to build chemistry. Though, with Fred Hoiberg getting fired and then implementing Jim Boylen’s, the growing pains are going to continue.
Bulls with Fred Hoiberg:
29th in offense, 22nd in defense, 30th in push-ups
Bulls with Jim Boylen:

This team needs leadership one way or another. The core players on this team have serious talent and they need a coach that can bring that out of them. The problem here isn’t the players, it’s Jim Boylen’s out of touch style that is stopping development.
