The CHGO Bulls crew discuss former Bulls Jimmy Butler and Lauri Markkanen owning the NBA headlines on Monday night. First, Markkanen was announced as the convincing winner of the 2022-23 NBA Most Improved Player award. Then, the NBA world watched a legendary performance from Butler, whose 56-point performance led the Heat to victory and a 3-1 series lead over the Bucks. Meanwhile, the current Bulls are watching the playoffs from home as the front office faces a difficult road to improvement this offseason. How should Bulls fans feel about these former Bulls shining for other teams? Is this a pattern, or unfortunate coincidence? Matt, Big Dave and Will break it down.
