The pod finishes up with a brief discussion about Jim Boylen reportedly getting ripped by several key players to the new front office, plus an ode to Ricky's run to the national championship as head coach of the Western Illinois Leathernecks in College Hoops 2K8.  Thanks to our partners BetOnline and BlueChew.

Another awful week
2110
Cash Considerations is back to talk about another Chicago Bulls disappointment. Jason and Ricky rant after the Bulls' ugly 108-95 loss to a shorthanded Pacers team, which dropped Chicago to 2-5 on the season. The Bulls are stacking up bad losses to begin the 2019-20 campaign, and there are plenty of people to blame, from supposed star players Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen to head coach Jim Boylen. One saving grace of this awful start has been the play of Wendell Carter Jr., who needs to be even more unselfish on the offensive end as he continues to develop.

On a positive note, Lauri Markkanen looked dominant, and the Bulls got strong showings from bench players Coby White, Thaddeus Young and Kris Dunn.

We love what the players had to say about the upcoming campaign, especially the leadership on display from Thaddeus Young and even Kris Dunn on accepting any role. However, some of the optimism is drained by early injuries to Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford during a three-hour first practice, and we couldn't help but take some jabs at the front office and Jim Boylen for this and their constant "in our building" refrain.
