Bobby Portis gave the Chicago Bulls their first victory of the season during a fight with a teammate, Nikola Mirotic.
Reports show that a shoving match between the two during practice ended with Portis giving Mirotic a cheap shot to the face. After the incident, Mirotic was taken to a local hospital.
The Chicago Bulls today sent a press release regarding the issue. “The Chicago Bulls understand it is vital to gain early-season victories, especially ones nobody saw coming. However, we do not condone those victories coming through cheap circumstances. Bobby acted against the ethos of the Chicago Bulls, and he knows it, doing anything to win has not been the Chicago way since Michael Jordan. Those days are well and truly behind us”.
However, in recent Chicago history, even when they win, they still kind of lose. League sources said that Mirotic is expected to be out for the foreseeable future.
