Patrick Beverley to the Bulls?
We’ve talked about our admiration for Patrick Beverley from the LA Clippers. Even on our earliest shows utilizing the ESPN Trade Machine, Chicago native Patrick Beverley has always been on our radar.
Last week, I noticed on Twitter that there was a Chicago fan that made a brief 20-second video asking Patrick to come home to Chicago and join our young core. Patrick responded by saying “That’s Real” in terms of the emotions displayed by the fan.
So as your Bulls Podcast co-host, I decided to take matters into my own hands and take it up to the next level myself.
I tweeted “Hey @patbev21, as the @bullspodcast co-host, and SoCal resident, I will personally pay for and drive your moving truck from LA to Chicago if you sign with the #Bulls. #SigningBonus #ComeHome” I also included the gif of a classic moment in Chicago where Scottie Pippen pointed at his Air Jordans and did the finger gesture to “come here” in reference to Jordan’s comeback to Chicago.
He responded with 4 sets of “Bug Eyes” as if he was sort of shocked at a fan saying something like that. And I can tell you, with gas at almost $5 a gallon here in California, it wouldn’t be cheap for me to gas up the moving truck and head 2000 miles East to the Windy City!
Not only did he respond, but hundreds of other Bulls fans responded to that retweet asking him to come to Chicago as well. There were also a number of LA Clippers fans that were stunned at the revelation that Beverley might be considering jumping to the Bulls.
I even had some actor threaten that he would try and hijack the truck and drive it back to Chicago. I had a fun laugh at that one.. Like I wouldn’t be fully strapped up riding 2000 miles? Actors somehow think they do things on screen and it translates to real life? Twitter commenters sometimes don’t think.
Then with the news of the Bulls signing Houston Rockets assistant Roy Rogers, Patrick AGAIN tweeted out a set of bug eyes and said “Coach Roy signs with the Bulls, I see you coach” in reference to his old assistant coach in Houston that he previously played under.
He’s currently in Chicago right now as of the time of this recording. His agent Kevin Bradbury also lives in Chicago. Now if these things are not signs that Patrick Beverley wants to be in a Bulls uniform, I don’t know what is. We may find PatBev in a Bulls uniform sooner than we think, and I might have to get my driving snacks ready for a long drive eastward. But hey, that’s what being a Chicago born and raised Bulls fan is all about.
This is complicated by of all things, Kevin Durant. If Durant bails on Golden State and decides to show up Lebron in his own city and building to join Patrick Beverley and the Clippers, this whole scenario is out the window.
Bulls sign Houston Assistant Coach Roy Rogers
The Bulls have made some headlines in the coaching staff department, hiring longtime Houston Rockets assistant Roy Rogers to back up Jim Boylen for the next 3 years. Rogers was a part of building the Rockets defense and had a big influence on Clint Capela's development as a player. This is something that can definitely rub off on WCJ and Lauri as they continue to develop their skills,
