The Chicago Bulls Are Struggling, And Dwyane Wade Is Pissed

The Chicago Bulls fell to 23-24 with Wednesday night's loss to the Atlanta Hawks, and stars Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler aren't having it.

Atlanta finished Wednesday's game on a 19-4 run, overcoming a 110-100 deficit with 3:02 remaining to win 119-114.

The Bulls wasted huge efforts from Butler (40 points) and Wade (33 points) in the loss. After the game, the two star guards were clearly upset, accusing the team of not caring enough.

Wade reiterated this himself on Twitter late last night, posting a picture of Michelle Obama from the Inauguration that went viral over the weekend. https://twitter.com/dwyanewade/status/824496762631163904 A few of the younger Bulls clearly heard the criticisms from Butler and Wade. Guard Jerian Grant went on a bit of a rant on Twitter last night as well.

At 23-24, the Bulls are a game clear of the Milwaukee Bucks, and currently sit in the No. 8 seed of the Eastern Conference. That clearly isn't enough for an aging star like Wade, who probably had high hopes for his return home after an illustrious career with the Miami Heat, or an emerging star like Butler.
