While the Bulls winning run of late may tempt the front office to alter its long-term plans, the upcoming draft class remains the focus of many NBA fans.
The elite talent category seems to be growing with the likes of Marvin Bagley Jr., Mo Bamba, DeAndre Ayton and Trae Young doing big things in college as freshmen (that doesn't even include the injured Michael Porter Jr. and Slovenian prospect Luka Doncic). Young dropped 39 points and 14 assists in a 90-89 win at previously undefeated TCU on Saturday.
That was his 11th straight game with 20 points or more. The last Sooner to do that? Former Bulls forward and current announcer Stacey King.
King took note of Young's accomplishment:

Young is averaging 28.7 points per game and the only game in which he didn't score 20 or more was his collegiate debut (he still had 15 points and 10 assists in that one). The 6-foot-2 guard has rapidly climbed up draft boards with his stellar play. For more on Young, check out Mark Schanowski's draft profile of him.
The Bulls may not be losing enough lately to have a chance to draft Young, but plenty of Bulls fans would love to hear King yell "Gimme that hot sauce!" in reference to a fellow Sooner next year.
