Bobby Portis has a future as a wordsmith when his basketball-playing days are done.
The Chicago Bulls forward reacted to Derek Rose’s signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday with a one-word description that’s nothing short of perfect. Portis used Twitter to say what others might have been thinking but might have been too tounge-tied to say.
Portis’ perfect tweet refers to the swelling number of former Bulls in the Timberwolves’ locker room, starting with head coach Tom Thibodeau, who coached Chicago between 2010 and 2015 and his assistant coaches Andy Greer, Ed Pinckney and Rick Brunson. Rose joins Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, John Lucas III and Aaron Brooks among former Bulls players on Minnesota’s roster.
How far the Timberbulls progress this season remains to be seen, but they’ll continue their journey with a fresh nickname, thanks to Portis.
