Before @dennisrodman was traded to the @ChicagoBulls, @PhilJackson11 asked him if he could apologize to @ScottiePippen for his hard play as a member of the @DetroitPistons #Bulls #Pistons

Have there been inconsistencies in his game? Absolutely. But nothing unexpected. Still, it’s important for LaVine to enter the offseason feeling like he’s recaptured his rhythm on offense. “Still just getting my feet wet, man,’’ LaVine said, when asked about just shutting it down for the season. “I mean how many games, [24] games [played], so there’s still some games to go out there and get in a rhythm before getting into the offseason and working out. “I mean I’ve had some parts where I’ve been frustrated, and I’ve had some parts where I’ve been happy with my play and the team’s play. But I didn’t have any expectations really coming into it. I was excited to get back on the court and get back out here and playing, stuff like that.’’
But the bad? How about the Mar. 5, 1-for-11 shooting night against Boston? Or the 3-for-15 in Detroit two weeks ago? “He’s had some really, really good moments for us, including right when he came back when he was on the 20-minute plan,’’ coach Fred Hoiberg said about LaVine this season. “I thought he played great. That first game, he came out and hit his first shot and carried some momentum over those first three games. He had the Minnesota game, which is as good a performance as we’ve had all year from any individual player. He’s had some other good moments as well. I don’t think unexpectedly there’s been some highs and lows throughout this process, as there is with any player that comes back from a lengthy absence from injury like Zach had. […] You have to see the overall package with the athleticism and the ability to shoot with range. I know he’s looking forward to a summer to hopefully get that rhythm back. And we are as well.”
