Thibs nevers ceases to amaze me.
I did NOT see this coming – the whole notion of intentionally losing in the season opener, throwing off the Heat, the Eastern Conference, the NBA and the world.
Thibs has to be proud of the way the team executed his unprecedented strategy to miss as many shots as possible, foul out, commit turnovers, and astound the competition with seeming ineptitude.
It was a brilliant plan, and our Bulls rose to the occasion.
Obviously, Thibs and the Bulls also recognized that it would be critical to get their first win at the UC, with Cinjo in attendance.
So it is actually a non-traditional two-pronged strategy.
All of the extra down time during the ring ceremony served them well, as they had ample opportunity to run through plays – how to miss three-pointers, jump shots, and basically, institute the “unless it’s Boozer shooting – miss it” approach.
DRose said post-game he is going to have amnesia about it.
See you at the UC Thursday night for the Bulls’ first win of the season!
See Red, and Go Bulls!
