The Chicago Bulls did WHAT in February?

If you think the Chicago Bulls have had a rough season, you should see what they did in February.

The Chicago Bulls have been absolutely abysmal this season, but even still, it’s hard to wrap your head around the level of futility they put on display in February.

Let’s be real — the Bulls are a laughing stock. They have been for the last few years, but this season in particular. They have found new and inventive ways to embarrass themselves on and off the court.

Whether it’s calling a timeout down infinity points with 10 seconds left in the game, or inexplicably refusing to start Coby White after three consecutive 30+ points game (33, 33, and 35) against the Phoenix Suns, Washington Wizards, and Oklahoma City Thunder, or even the level of contempt players have shown for their coach on and off the court, it’s been a disaster.

And while there have been season-long rumors of “changes” coming, the more details that come out, the more fans are left to feel like that change will be meaningless. Perhaps if things get cataclysmic over the course of the remaining six weeks or so, maybe they will make a real change.

Well, if February is any indication, they may be well on their way. Despite having an extra day in the month due to it being a leap year, the Bulls still only managed to win a grand total of — wait for it — one game! That was against the powerhouse aforementioned Wizards who sit at 22-37 overall. Go ahead and pop the champagne bottles, everyone!

Alright, sarcasm aside, that is tough to do. And I get that they have dealt with some injuries and that at this point, it is in their best interest to continue to lose (they currently hold the seventh overall pick AGAIN), but the problem is the way in which they have managed to accomplish this latest futile feat.

Next. Jim Boylen is the worst coach -- maybe ever. dark

They look like a team that has very little interest in being on the court and even less hope that things are likely to improve. Ironically, it wasn’t that long ago that I forewarned of the possibility of losing the players, and slowly but surely, that prognostication appears to be coming to fruition.
