21 Days to Opening Night: Bobby Portis' points per 36 minutes


We’ve written it before, but if you’re new here let us explain just how good Bobby Portis was in a limited role last season: Though Portis only averaged 22 minutes he was one of THREE players in the entire league to average 21 points, 10 rebounds and 1.5 3-pointers per 36 minutes.

The other two?

Kevin Love and DeMarcus Cousins. That’s pretty remarkable territory.

And while we certainly aren’t comparing Portis to either of those two, you can see the kind of numbers Portis puts up when given minutes. Now he’s in a contract year and looks better than ever.

Sixth Man of the Year consideration isn’t too far off, and between him, Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. the Bulls are putting together a dynamic young frontcourt.
