The guys dive further into the common talking points among Bulls fans who don’t want to see the Bulls sign Zach LaVine to a max contract and why so many of them are false or misleading. Mark K’s recent column approached it from every angle: Zach’s performance compared to similarly tiered stars, Zach’s previous and upcoming contracts compared to those similarly tiered stars, the Bulls cap situation entering this offseason, and the different kind of max contracts that exist in the Collective Bargaining Agreement of today’s NBA. All reasonable logic points to the Bulls signing LaVine to a max contract as the best course of action. So why are so many Bulls fans hesitant?

Matt, Big Dave, Will and Mark then wrap the episode with a discussion of the NBA playoffs as we enter the conference semifinals.
