For Bulls fans, this is shaping up to be a curse of sorts. Fans are all too familiar with the Derrick Rose knee tragedies that derailed their hopes and dreams of a potential NBA championship run year after year.
Lonzo proved his presence on the team is vital as evidenced by the team’s 27-13 league-leading record at one point, and their tumultuous downfall in his absence, falling to a depressing 19-23 record and a fast first round playoff exit.
The Bulls will look to find a way to play without Lonzo and hope his recovery is much quicker this time.
