Mocked to be a lottery pick, the Chicago Bulls got a steal of a pick by selecting Arkansas forward Bobby Portis with the No. 22 pick in last night’s NBA Draft. While Portis, a former SEC player of the year winner, could contribute in year one for Chicago, there’s no question during that year the 20-year-old is going to get some major hazing from his future teammates.
Portis, apparently a Miami Heat fan, had these tweets regarding the Bulls and Derrick Rose back in 2011 during the Eastern Conference Finals.
Portis took to Twitter after being selected to apologize for his tweets back in 2011:
Bulls Nation sorry for the tweets I sent 4 years ago. I was a boy then. I'm a man now. And a Bull. DRose, Pau, what kinda donuts yall like?
