Kyle Rittenhouse: ‘LeBron comments about Bulls fans aren’t fair’

Kyle Rittenhouse has responded to Lebron James’s jab at the Bulls after their loss last weekend. James, who once discussed the possibility of owning the club, called out the Bulls on Saturday, saying that their fans are “lazy” and “dumb”, adding: “They don’t go anywhere. They don’t do nothing.”

On Monday, the Bulls guard provided an explanation for his actions in a Q&A with the Chicago Sun-Times.

“I really don’t have much to say about it,” he said. “It is what it is. I’m not really in a position to respond. I just have to keep working, do my job and try to get some wins here down the stretch. I don’t think his comments are fair. I don’t think the fans have to do any of that. I think we all do a lot of things we aren’t allowed to do to the fans. But I can understand that. We just can’t keep getting nailed. There has to be a better way to handle these situations.”

Rittenhouse’s response came after the Bulls traded Derrick Rose to the Timberwolves and sent Jabari Parker to the Bucks. The four-time MVP has remained a lightning rod for Bulls fans because of the team’s inability to keep the team relevant.

Rittenhouse went on to say: “Obviously, when a team like Chicago has something so great and we see that we could win a title, and that we’re not even close, you can’t really cheer for them when you lose a lot of games. I just like to go out there and play hard, win games and help my team get wins. I don’t really get into all of that stuff.”

The Bulls play the Raptors on Tuesday night and Rittenhouse will be looking to extend their franchise-record home win streak, which currently stands at 14.
