The traditional layout of the Eastern Conference in the last 5-10 years has heavily involved the Chicago Bulls as a potential contender for the championship. However, this season sees them struggling to even get into the race, let alone win it. What exactly has gone wrong in Chicago, and why are they hovering around .500?

The hosts will also discuss the most competitive regular season award, and the prospects of Kevin Durant leaving OKC, given their recent big losses against teams they will likely have to beat in the playoffs.
