The Chicago Bulls staged an impressive 21-point comeback against the Miami Heat, yet the triumph unfolded with notable drama, according to insights from the Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley.

Star guard Zach LaVine reportedly exhibited frustration by nearly storming off the court and resisting the team’s PR director during attempts to fulfill post-game media duties, citing a “miscommunication.”

“Just a miscommunication with the PR team,” LaVine said. “We’re all fine.”

Sources reveal the front office is displeased with LaVine’s actions, and coach Billy Donovan is reportedly discontented upon learning of the incident.

This incident follows recent reports suggesting LaVine and the Bulls are open to exploring new opportunities.

Despite LaVine’s stellar individual performance, the Bulls, with a 5-9 record, face challenges, including the absence of Lonzo Ball.

Cowley notes that the post-game episode may stem from a misunderstanding, yet the reported dissatisfaction from the management and coaching staff accentuates the perceived disconnect within the team.
