    On today's episode, Matt takes texts and emails from listeners, with topics including a hypothetical Harrison Barnes trade and resting DeMar DeRozan for soft matchups or back-to-backs. Could the Bulls offer Sacramento the best trade package if they get multiple offers for Harrison Barnes before the deadline? Should Billy Donovan consider resting DeMar on certain nights to preserve him for a playoff run? Other topics include Nikola Vucevic and Coby White building off the chemistry they started to develop last season, and whether or not Ayo Dosunmu's strong start to his rookie year is proving that Patrick Williams doesn't have the "it" factor.

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave break down the Bulls' dominant victory over Anthony Davis and the Lakers, including massive games from the trio of DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball. DeMar dropped 38 the night after dropping 35 in the win over the Clippers and looks like a player very much in his prime. He also has several chips on his shoulder, and loves his equally shoulder-chipped teammates. Lonzo continues to struggle with his shots inside the arc, but his defense, passing and three-point shooting are so good that it might not matter?

Lonzo Ball got off to a scorching start on his way to 21 points on 7-10 shooting from downtown, and his proving he's comfortable pulling up off the dribble as well as in catch-and-shoot scenarios. He also had his full-court passing skills on full display, leading to easy buckets and dazzling dunks by Zach LaVine. Nikola Vucevic also had a strong game as he continues to work his way out of the shooting slump, and got his night started by attacking inside.

Lastly, Matt touches on the latest update on Coby White, who could return from his shoulder injury during the upcoming 5-game road trip.

    Bulls Defense Impresses in Wins over Pelicans, Pistons for 3-0 Start

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave break down back to back weekend wins over the Pelicans and Pistons, improving to a 3-0 start to the season. In their home opener, the United Center crowd was treated to endless highlight-reel plays, with Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and Javonte Green shining on fastbreak scores. Lonzo Ball had a turnover-less triple double against his former team, while Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan continued to pick their spots to take over offensively. But these wins were also further evidence that - while acknowledging a lack of star par from opponents - the Bulls are engaged and focused on the defensive end. Nikola Vucevic looks more comfortable on that end than he did last season, and is contributing to the team's takeaways with his active hands. Caruso and Ball are also locked in, and their defensive focus is rubbing off on the rest of the team.

    Can Zach LaVine Enter MVP Conversation This Season?

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave take your texts and emails, with topics ranging from the impact of Thad Young's absence, Patrick Williams' pecking order among offensive options and whether Zach LaVine can enter the MVP conversation this season. Did the Bulls do enough this offseason to replace Thad Young's minutes as a reliable two-way power forward? Can Zach still make the All Star team if his stats dip compared to last season with some of the scoring and ballhandling burden taken off his shoulders? If Zach's offensive numbers only dip slightly, but he becomes a better closer and the Bulls look like a dangerous playoff team, can he sneak his foot in the door of the MVP conversation this season? And how long will it take for Patrick to become a 2nd or 3rd offensive option on this team?

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave discuss their expectations for Bulls Media Day, and how the latest wrinkles of the Ben Simmons mess could provide insight into Zach LaVine's upcoming free agency. What questions will be asked of the Bulls front office and coaching staff? Will we get any updates on the NBA's ongoing tampering investigation, or at least hear AKME & Donovan's thoughts on it? Also, we break down the latest reports on the Ben Simmons drama as the 76ers star is prepared to hold out from training camp, and maybe even sit out games until he is traded. Is Simmons taking these cues from Rich Paul and Klutch Sports, and what might that mean for Zach LaVine's Bulls future and upcoming free agency?

    Patrick Williams & Coby White Fall In Redrafts, Fair or Foul?

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave discuss the recent Bleacher Report redrafts for the 2019 and 2020 NBA rookie classes, with Patrick Williams and Coby White both falling from their original draft spots. Coby fell all the way from 7th to 20th, while Patrick fell from 4th to 8th. Is this more about hidden gems in the late first and even second rounds of these draft classes that surprised most everybody with their early career performances, or are the ceilings of Coby and Patrick actually lower than we hoped? Also, we start the show with a quick chat about Zach LaVine's recent shows of affection for other Chicago teams and if it means anything about his long-term future.

    Celtics Poaching Zach LaVine? And Zach Gets More Endorsements as Klutch Sports Client

    On today's episode, Matt and Big Dave react to the recent report saying Zach LaVine could be the Celtics #1 target next summer, and Zach's growing brand with the NBA2K/Mountain Dew partnership. With Zach and Bradley Beal being the two biggest potential unrestricted free agents in 2022, there's lots of noise around which teams might try to poach Zach away from the Bulls. Would Brad Stevens throw the bag at Zach, and would he leave to play with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown? Also, Zach continues to grow his brand with the recent announcement of his partnership with Mountain Dew and NBA2K. This is likely because he joined Klutch Sports, and that's a good thing...right?
