After the Chicago Bulls lost their fourth game in a row on Sunday, Zach LaVine didn’t try to disguise his disappointment. LaVine was one of three Bulls players who scored 20 points or more in the Bulls’ victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The issue was that no defence was used because the Wolves also controlled the offensive end of the game. Anthony Edwards, who exploded for 37 points for Minnesota en route to their 150-126 triumph, was especially difficult for Chicago to contain.
LaVine was obviously disappointed to suffer yet another loss after the game. They failed to win any of their games for the whole week, and as a result, they have now slipped to the bottom five teams in the Eastern Conference, outside of the playoff and play-in berths.
“We’re all frustrated about it. I am aware that it is upsetting to the fans. It is humiliating. According to Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic, LaVine remarked of the embarrassing Bulls defeat, “We’re all a little ashamed about it.
To be fair to Zach LaVine, it’s simple to understand why he’s upset. They are a below-average club on offence and defence, as evidenced by their matchup with the Timberwolves. Although the same could be said for Minnesota, the fact that Chicago struggled to stop them says a lot about where the Windy City franchise is right now.

It is unclear what will happen to the Bulls in the future, but if they keep having trouble, it won’t be shocking if they decide to dissolve the team.
