Lauri Markkanen made the list at No. 19, but the centerpiece of the Jimmy Butler trade didn’t make any of the three panelists’ Top 25. Usually cool, LaVine flashed a little bit of incredulousness once he had a chance to gather his thoughts. “You guys (media) don’t think I’m better…Top 25 players under 25? If I’m not in the Top 25 of that, then I obviously haven’t done what I’m supposed to be doing out here,” LaVine told “I don’t worry about that. I know I’m a lot better than what they think. Random people talking.”
LaVine is usually one of the first Bulls players finished with the post game shower and interviews, but once again Friday night he lingered late, dressing slowly and perhaps repeating the word “frustrated” a half dozen times. “Just frustrating, the consistency,” LaVine told reporters, ever gracious and cordial with some lament in his tone. “You have two good games, two bad games, good game, bad game. Something like that where I’m not used to having that. It’s frustrating, but you have to fight through it. You can’t keep your head down too long. It’s a day to day thing; get it out of your head and get on to the next one. Just part of the game, part of coming back,” LaVine added with his intellectual side that tends to battle his emotional. “It’s frustrating, but I think I’ve been dealing with it pretty well. You can’t hold on to it because it will affect you the next one and one after that.”
Every team hopes for that kind of player, like James Harden, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, Steph Curry, LeBron James. There’s not really enough to go around, but LaVine was looking like he might take that leap before he fell into his medical maw. “At some point I was expecting to have some good games, some bad games,” LaVine said. “But I always have a (big) confidence in myself to do better regardless of what I am doing. I think I should be doing better and I am going to keep striving for that.”
