The first of the Bulls’ broadcast “keys to the game” was this: “Get Markkanen the ball”. That’s a good start, actually a lot better than most of the crappy keys to the game that I’m always seeing, but it needs to be amended to: “Get Markkanen AND LOPEZ the ball”.
That’s because Lauri Markkanen and Robin Lopez are both the best player on the Bulls, and they need equal touches. Lopez in the paint, Markkanen on the perimeter. No problem! Lopez has made it clear that he’s never going to start shooting threes unlike his loser brother, and Markkanen has made it clear that he wants to be a softie Euro Charmin-brand three-point caresser. There is no conflict of interest here. Just take some shots away from Justin Holiday who is really chucking right now and everyone should be happy.
