Yes, Mrs. Lincoln. But other than that, how did you like the play?
It was a productive first day of Bulls practice Tuesday morning under new coach Fred Hoiberg.

Probably someone in this stats infested sports world measures it, though I haven’t seen it yet. But the Bulls probably just completed the best ever 45-win regular season with a second round playoff loss.
