Denzel Valentine of the Chicago Bulls on his response when asked about his limited playing time. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/bulls/ct-denzel-valentine-bulls-spt-0430-20170429-story.html
“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:
“The biggest thing we want to see is effort.”
“We can’t rely on talent to win games. You rely on hard work, grind, dedication, sacrifice; those are the things we need to get back to.”
“We have 30 games left. We have to give it our all for 30 games. Hopefully this break gives us a little time to get away from it. We come back we have to decide whether we are going to play or not. You can say (the problems are) communication, you can say effort, you can say a lot of things. I really can’t put a finger on it. I’ve been trying to figure it out the entire year. It brought me back to when I first came here, seeing the same things; we used to lose games like that. We have to come out and play harder for the fans.”
