Illini in the NBA

I think it's going to be mostly this with some games like that first one spinkled in, at least at first. He's at 9th or 10th in the rotation right now, and as much as I wish it wasn't so, will be behind Coby when he comes back as well
Yeah when White comes back and games aren't blowouts it's easy to see how this just becomes nightly DNP's. There are so many guards on these team.

They should really make a trade to get some more size, very small for an NBA roster.

Still, as a Bulls fan it's an encouraging start!

The Bulls do have the benefit of having some undersized guys who play bigger than they are ie Derozan, Green, and Johnson.

He looks so different now.
He does look different--due to age or updating his style? But he's definitely added some muscle along with a more stern, severe look to go with the "falling vines" hair style. If it gets him more game time (which I thought he earned in summer league as well as pre-season), I'm all for it.

Go Bulls! Ayo with the steal and assist to Lavine before the end of the first half! :illinois:

Ayo with a tough layup. Getting praise from the commentators for his improvement. Struggled to get through screens in summer league, busting through screens tonight :cool:

He is looking great for a kid just up from the U. If he continues to study and learn I predict a nice long NBA career. He just keeps getting better.

Ok, not *like Bob Horry* who has more rings than anyone in the three-point era. But there are guys who run up numbers on bad teams and there are guys who quietly collect wins on good teams. I’m pretty sure I know which path this young man will follow.

Now appearing in Tampa
Watched the long version of game highlights and AYO was involved in more than that one block. He got 3 assists in 11 minutes of tick, including one nice feed on a fast break. He was 8 or 9th in the rotation, nice on a guard heavy team.
