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.
