Fred Hoiberg Should Probably Figure Out Which Lopez Brother Is On His Team

More so than in any other professional league, in the NBA, it's extremely important to not be mediocre. To constantly be the seventh or eighth or ninth best team in your conference is useless. You aren't good enough to win a championship and aren't bad enough to get a top player in the draft. As much as it suck to be the Sixers, "Trust The Process". Sam Hinkie's process may have taken too long, but the assets the Sixers have acquired are finally going to add up.
After years of slightly better than mediocrity, the Bulls have decided to blow it all up. But Bulls president Gar Forman really is thankful for the incredible run the Bulls went on over the last decade.
Gar Forman spoke with pride about the Bulls' "great run for 10 years," which included no NBA Finals. Speaks to the lack of accountability.
10 years and zero Finals appearances. Now that's a dynasty if we've ever heard one! But Foreman's crowning of the members of former team wasn't nearly as great as head coach Fred Hoiberg's assessment of his newest player.
Fred Hoiberg said he's excited to coach Brook Lopez. The Bulls acquired Robin Lopez.
We feel like it's relatively important to know who plays for your team. Hoiberg had a rough rookie year, feuding with Joakim Noah and not coaching Jimmy Butler hard enough. Now starting in year two, Hoiberg confused the Lopez twins. It's clear in Chicago that things are going to get worse before they get better.
And that's before this team trades away Jimmy Butler for Ricky Rubio and Kris Dunn.
