The CHGO Bulls crew returns from the weekend by reviewing and analyzing the latest rumors surrounding Zach LaVine’s free agency. There’s another report from The Ringer that doubled down on the theory of Zach LaVine being courted by the Portland Trail Blazers this summer. Why does this keep popping up if there’s very little logic behind it?

There was also the confusing report by David Kaplan on his ESPN 1000 radio show that there are those within the Bulls organization who doubt whether Zach is worthy of a max contract because he may lack something called “dog mentality.” Matt, Big Dave and Will all agree that this is largely noise, and not even noise that has followable logic behind it. They also offer their thoughts on Game 2 of the NBA Finals and how the series may shift as they head to Boston for Games 3 and 4.
