Insider Reveals Why Bulls Don’t Want to Make Trades With Lakers


One NBA insider has revealed their theory on why the Bulls don’t want to make trades with another storied franchise in the Lakers.

“In this industry you, you have to make the best decision for you as a team but people are petty and make stupid decisions all the time that like aren’t what’s best for you… Fans clamor for Alex Caruso right like for years,” NBA insider Eric Pincus told fellow insider Jovan Buha.

“Like they should have gotten [Andre] Drummond and Caruso. I’m like,  go look at like the transaction logs of Lakers-Chicago like they don’t make trades together. Last one was like during when the Lakers were rebuilding and were terrible. The Bulls dumped like an older point guard, a Spanish point guard on them and I forget which one it was. It was a marriage of convenience that helped the Bulls.”

Pincus went on to explain exactly why he thinks the Bulls and Lakers franchises don’t often make trade deals together.

“I think their owner doesn’t want LeBron infringing upon like Michael [Jordan’s] legacy,” Pincus continued. “…They’re just not going to help LeBron [James].”

This is clearly just a theory from Pincus not backed up by evidence, but it does make a lot of sense.

The Michael Jordan / LeBron James GOAT debate is one that rages on to this day.

Chicago not wanting to give LeBron any kind of leg up that would potentially get him any closer to MJ’s legacy could be a totally valid reason for the Bulls avoiding trades with the Lakers.
