It’s an impressive rendition featuring Bulls-specific tunes that capture the whimsy of Beauty and the Beast. Benny the Bull and the Luvabulls make an appearance as Belle tries to find the Bulls game. The best part of the story has to be that the villain is Robin Lopez who plays Robon (a combination of Robin and Gaston), which is fitting since Lopez has beefed it with mascots before.
“(Nikola) Mirotic and (Serge) Ibaka have confirmed their availability,” Scariolo said to Onda Cero radio. “Obviously there is a different status and situation, but all of the players have confirmed to me their availability, although with certain provisos. Each has his own circumstances and own situation, but the availability of all is very good.”
Scariolo will only be allowed to call up Mirotic or Ibaka, but not both, since each can only compete for the country as a naturalized Spaniard. Ibaka played at FIBA EuroBasket 2011, the 2012 Olympics and the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup while Mirotic represented the country at FIBA EuroBasket 2015 and at last year’s Olympics.

Lopez will return to the Bulls lineup Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers, a relief to the Bulls considering the league could’ve taken a harsher stance with Lopez — a two- or three-game suspension was being mulled at the league office, sources tell CSNChicago.com Lopez was pushed into Ibaka after Jimmy Butler hit a three in the second half, and the two combatants squared off underneath the rim, with officials, teammates and coaches trying to separate them.
