Chicago Bulls superstar guard Zach LaVine has fired back at the Athletic’s report of a disconnect with the organization, and reports from Bulls beat reporter K.C. Johnson and from Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley furthering the story.
The two reporters also shared a story that Bulls players having a recent blow-up with LaVine, particularly during their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
“I didn’t come up with the report,” LaVine said following Chicago’s victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday, according to The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry. “It didn’t come from my mouth. It didn’t come from DeMar’s mouth. It didn’t come from Vooch’s.”
“If I had something to say about the team, it would come from my mouth. That didn’t come from me. … I feel good about the team. Obviously, we’re frustrated cause we’ve lost some games. … It didn’t come from the horse’s mouth,” LaVine concluded.
