Kendall Gill says dead grandmother could get 25 on Bulls’ defense

SHARE Kendall Gill says dead grandmother could get 25 on Bulls’ defense

It’s been frustrating to watch the Bulls all season. For stretches, they look like one of the best teams in the NBA; other times, they look like they belong in the D-League.

Nowhere is the Jekyll-and-Hyde performance more apparent than on defense. Analysts around the league have continuously pointed out their soft play on screen-roll situations.

Former Bulls guard Kendall Gill was getting increasingly upset during the Bulls’ 120-93 loss to the Clippers on Sunday. The game was televised nationally on ABC, but that didn’t stop the CSN analyst from giving his unfiltered opinion of the Bulls’ pick-and-roll defense on Twitter.

OK, the grandma comment might be a little exaggerated, but Gill does know something about playing defense. During the lockout-shortened 1998-99 season, Gill led the NBA in steals with 2.7 per game, playing just 32.1 minutes.
