Stop me if you heard this one before, but LeBron eliminated the Bulls again. Now I realize that the Bulls were already eliminated from the playoffs before this game, but it doesn’t make it any easier that the game that mathematically put them out was because of LeBron.
On top of it all, LeBron came back to the UC as he usually does and put on a show. LeBron finished with, 36 points 10 boards and 4 assists and the Lakers cruised to a 123-107 victory. Which of course the Bulls blew a 20 point lead in, though the team was missing leading scorer, Zach LaVine.

It just seems every time the Bulls are ready to be put out of their misery, LeBron is there. This man literally dominates this franchise, especially here at home at the United Center. LeBron has the most 30 point games as a visitor at the UC and it isn’t even close.
30-point games as a visitor at the United Center (regular season + playoffs).
18 – LEBRON JAMES
8 – Allen Iverson
6 – Karl Malone
6 – Michael Redd
5 – 4 players

Even in his 16th NBA season he’s still pulling off oops and making it look effortless.

At least LeBron is in the Western Conference now and the Bulls only have to see him twice a year, because honestly, I’m tired of this crap. Every time I turn around this dude is doing something to the Bulls. Eliminating them from the playoffs, beating them in the regular season, and now eliminating them from playoff contention.
Now the homer in me is going to come out a bit, so be prepared. No more will this happen after this season! The young core that is in place of Lauri, Zach, WCJ, and OPJ, to go along with a top 5 pick in the 2019 draft the Bulls will be a force and won’t ever be eliminated by LeBron again!
A guy can dream, right?
