How to describe the Chicago Bulls in five words?

An NBA analyst recently tasked himself with describing the Chicago Bulls and every other ball club in the Association with five words, and when it came to the Bulls, you can probably already guess where that analyst went. Bleacher Report’s Greg Swartz went with “the definition of insanity” to describe Chicago.

And in reference to the Bulls’ inaction at the NBA’s trade deadline for the third season in a row, it is not hard to understand why given their current state of affairs. “It’s been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results,” writes Swartz, who suggests Chicago might be given their recent lack of moves.

“Sitting pat at the trade deadline without buying or selling was the worst thing this franchise could have done,” he adds.

“After finishing two games below .500 last season (40-42), the Bulls are on near-identical path (currently 26-29) while playing mostly the same core,” suggest the B/R analyst. “A play-in tournament loss is now the best realistic outcome for a team that should have traded off some of its veterans, stocking up on draft picks in what will become an inevitable rebuild.”

“Chicago could well lose DeMar DeRozan in free agency to the Philadelphia 76ers or another contender when it probably should have traded him (and others) all along.”

Can’t say we disagree, even a little.
