More details of Bulls infighting exposed, players accuse each other of lack of trust in locker room
According to a report by The Athletic reporter Shams Charania, multiple sources in the league revealed that after the Bulls lost to the Timberwolves in the last game, Bulls player Zach LaVine had conflicts with several teammates, which has caused conflicts in the locker room. Shams Charania later talked about more details about the infighting in the Bulls locker room on the show. Shams Charania said that during the halftime break of the Bulls’ loss to the Timberwolves, a huge conflict broke out in the team’s locker room. Many players in the Bulls publicly accused the Bulls player Zach LaVine, and then LaVine counterattacked , Bulls coach Billy – Donovan intervened in the locker room to quell the infighting.
According to reports, many Bulls players were dissatisfied with Zach LaVine’s performance in the game, and LaVine himself was not to be outdone. He felt that he had been accused for no reason. The team is currently suffering a losing streak. It’s not my own problem.
On the show, Shams Charania talked about the strife in the Bulls locker room and said: “I was told that the Bulls and Zach LaVine only had differences on the status quo of the team and how to win. A lot of remedial measures, and now a lot of teams are paying attention to the situation of the Bulls, and they want to see if the Bulls will finally put LaVine on the shelf.”
Shams Charania continued: “This is not the first time the Bulls have internal strife this season. Before that, everyone thought it was the internal strife caused by the Bulls’ poor record, but judging from the current situation, the Bulls’ problem is not just the team record. As a result, many of the players were very dissatisfied with LaVine’s performance in the game, and publicly accused LaVine of not trying to return to defense in the game.”
It is reported that this is not the first time that the Bulls have had a fight in the locker room in the team in recent seasons. Before that, when Fred Hoiberg was coaching the Bulls, there had been Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Bobby. When Tees made a big fight in training, the Bulls then punished both of them. When Dwyane Wade was playing in the past, the Bulls had young players who accused Wade of not being active in training in the locker room. In situations such as relying on the old and selling the old, it can be seen that the bulls have a long history of internal strife.
Later, in an interview with the media, LaVine talked about the Bulls’ locker strife and explained it. LaVine said: “I think everyone’s performance will have ups and downs, just like every team’s performance. …Obviously we are not in the winning rhythm, which makes everyone very unhappy. So the atmosphere in the team will not be as good as before. But I think if we can win, all these problems will be solved Exist. Everyone has their own opinion now. For me, I have to be humble, try to improve myself and help the team better. We all have different levels of depression, and everyone just wants to find help for the team. The method is not an internal strife as the outside world said.”
Later, Bulls player Vucevic said: “This is actually not a particularly serious situation, but the team has indeed encountered some problems. We lost some games. The team’s situation is not very good. A few different voices, disagreements about how to help the team get better, that’s all, it’s not a serious thing, it’s normal in competitive sports.”
