Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen following Chicago’s 56-point loss to the Boston Celtics.
“The pro player thing? This is basketball. This is about honoring the game and doing the right things. Embarrassment is not giving the effort in that Bulls uniform.”
Denzel Valentine, an alum of Lansing Sexton High School has been hurt – hasn’t played yet this season.
“I’m a fighter. I’m not going to quit; just deal with the hand dealt. I can’t sit here & be negative. I’ve just got to fight, stay mentally strong & this will be bitter sweet when I come back & have a great year.”

“You have to come to work & handle things professionally. I can’t come into work mad or lash out. That’s nonsense.”
Boston has taken a 3-2 lead in the series.
How about the C’s with 27 assists and just 6 turnovers?
Share the ball. Hit the open man. That’s what it’s all about.
Jimmy Butler, Chicago Bulls:
“We have competitors; fierce ones at that. Guys are fighting. Guys come out every night and hustle”
“Why don’t you come in here and work on your game? Shoot, watch some film…”
Chicago Bulls GM on what they want to see in the summer league:
