Zach LaVine spoke of his disappointment after the Chicago Bulls were not one of the 22 teams invited to resume the regular season in Orlando.
The Bulls, who had a 22-43 record, were 11th in the Eastern Conference.
“It sucks. You’ve got to understand it. It’s a weird time, especially with everything that’s going on right now, but it’s upsetting too. We weren’t even good enough to get to the play-in game, so it’s upsetting and it just shows that we’ve got to do a lot of things differently to get ourselves that recognition to get to that spot,” said LaVine.
The team hired a new vice president of basketball operations in Arturas Karnisovas, along with a new general manager in Marc Eversley. But LaVine added that the change in culture begins with the players.
“We can’t continue to make the same mistakes. We have to change our identity and how we’re looked at as a team to [having] a winning culture. We had high expectations for this year … and it wasn’t anything like that. I think we competed extremely well. I think we were one of the hardest-playing teams in the NBA, but you need that ‘W’ in your win column, so we’ve got to get better.”
