Woj reporting that Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus.  Apparently (no surprise given how he handled his media session) he has been careless in the locker room and touching other players' belongings.

Thankfully he was the only other positive test out of the Utah traveling party.

To clarify, Gobert was the one touching everyone’s belongings.

I don't think that's right - Mitchell makes three, so far, along with Gobert and Emmanuel Mudiay.

Sorry, that is correct.  Thought I had mentioned Gobert before saying "he had been careless in the locker room" but I didn't.

I don’t know if Mudiay has tested positive. All I’ve seen is he’s out with an illness and people jumped to conclusions.

Giannis and Kevin Love each pledge $100,000 to laid off arena workers.

I expect more players to follow suit.

Cool that the players are doing it but are any of the owners except for Cuban?

The Bucks announced they will match any player donations.  I don't think that will be coming directly from Edens's or Lasry's pockets, but they're helping.

About 80% of the league’s teams have committed to doing something, not just players. Interestingly the Pelicans are one who have not

Middleton is so bad that, with the Bucks taking the ball out of bounds from the side with 2.3 seconds left, he travels quickly enough to give the ball back to the Jazz, then, while guarding the guy who has 30 points, loses his man to give up a wide open game winner.

Hope I’m wrong but the Bucks aren’t winning a title with Middleton as the Bucks’ second best player. And Middleton will be the Bucks’ second best player for as long as this contract lasts as you can’t afford anyone better with what you’re paying him.

I realize that this was back in November (and you've sang many praises for him since), but this would be pretty elite company to be a part of, assuming he gets, and takes, the chance.  Didn't realize how good of a season he was having with all the Giannis MVP talk.

The Last Dance, a documentary about Jordan’s last year on the Bulls is being released early. First two episodes on April 19. One silver lining at least.

Yeah Middleton had been incredible this year. If we got that guy in the Playoffs with normal Giannis it’s game over. Wish I could’ve seen that play out with no season interruptions.

The NBA is apparently considering holding its entire post-season in Las Vegas.  However besides concerns about puttng everyone together into one place, there are concerns about taking medical personnel off line.  Realistically I can't see this happening until June or July...if at all.  And at that point, it's not really going to "feel" like the same season anyway.  But I know that's how they earn their TV money.

Maybe they should just end the season now and declare the Bucks the champions!

Did the both succumb to COVID?  Or did Michael Reinsdorf?  Cause otherwise not sure I will ever believe it.

This isn't how I want the Bucks to win a championship. Win an abbreviated playoff, fine.

Am I the only person who thinks Vernon Carey is being incredibly underrated as a pro prospect? Every mock draft I see has him going late in the first round. I’d pick him in the top 10, possibly even top 5. I get it, he’s more of an “old school, back to the basket” big than the stretch bigs that can also guard in space. But he just gets it done. I think he may end up being like Bam Adebyo. Thought to be this guy who would be great had he played 15 years ago but that the modern game had passed that style up. But when he gets to the NBA he expands his game and is a monster.

Ding Dong the witch is dead ... the Bulls have fired Gar Foreman.
I'm generally reluctant to be happy about someone losing their job, but this is a hige relief for us Bulls fans who feared nothing would change, even with a new director of basketball ops, as long as Gar had a role in the organization.
