DeMar DeRozan delivers hilarious analogy when asked about Bulls' recent struggles

Chicago Bulls star guard DeMar DeRozan offered a hilarious explanation when asked about the rough stretch his team has hit since the All-Star break. The Bulls entered the All-Star break tied for the first place in the Eastern Conference but have since gone 7-15 and are set to enter the playoffs as the sixth seed.

On Friday, the Bulls suffered a blow out 133-117 home loss to the Charlotte Hornets. It was the fourth consecutive loss for the Bulls. "It's just one of those tests we wish we would've had earlier in the season," DeRozan said after the Bulls' latest loss, per ESPN.

"We had so much success so quick, so fast that I knew at some point we were going to have to deal with this type of adversity. You never want it at the end of the road. "It's kind of like, going through high school, you getting all A's as a freshman, sophomore.

Then as a junior and senior year, you get AP classes and that s--- is extremely hard. But now you've just got to buckle down and kind of put the extra work in. Studying. You've got to take it to that next level if you really want to -- if you want to go to Yale."

DeRozan and Co.

never stood a chance

The Bulls never really stood a chance as at one point they trailed by 37 points. DeRozan didn't shoot much as he went a solid 7-of-13 from the field for 17 points. "They attacked us," DeRozan said. "We couldn't guard them.

They had their way." Zach LaVine, who scored a team-high 23 points for the Bulls, underlined the Bulls have got to do better. "We just got to do a better job because it's right around the corner," LaVine said of the playoffs. "We can't let this happen. It's embarrassing."
