The Chicago Bulls star was visibly frustrated when his team lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder after leading by as many as 20 points. Lavine spoke with the media and talked about how the team needs to learn how to close basketball games when leading, after having a good first half and then outscored 77-57 in the second half in a 127-125 loss.
The Chicago Bulls recently hired old Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Billy Donovan who has a career record with the Thunder of 239-153. The team has a current record of 4-8, and if they can’t get things clicking, Zach Lavine might want out. There certainly are reports surfacing that Lavine wants to be rightly compensated for his play, per NBA Central. He’s only making around 19 million dollars and the man is averaging 28 points, shooting nearly 40 percent from three point range, give him what he’s owed.
