Bulls’ Mirotic accepts Portis’ apology

ESPN — Nikola Mirotic says he has accepted Bobby Portis‘ apology and is hoping both he and the Bulls can move forward after a practice altercation between the pair last month. Speaking for the first time since an Oct. 17 fight with Portis that left Mirotic with multiple facial fractures and a concussion, the veteran forward made it clear that he feels he can coexist with Portis again in the future.

“We are teammates,” Mirotic said after Wednesday’s practice. “We are on the same team. Obviously we are fighting for this team. We both are going to do what we need to do to make it work. Yeah, I did accept his apology.”

Mirotic said he did not want to address events in the past and did not directly answer a question regarding whether the pair has actually sat down and spoken. When asked if Portis knew that he had accepted his apology, Mirotic responded that he would eventually.

“I guess he will know now,” Mirotic said.

Well look at that.  Good for Mirotic! Fresh off of getting his jaw unwired and being able to speak again, he says that he accepts his apology.  I am not sure if I was in Mirotic’s shoes I would be able to just forgive him after eating boost for breakfast and ensure for dinner.

CHICAGO BULLS 14/15 NEY YORK 14/15

Maybe this will turn around the Bulls season and they can actually focus on winning some basketball games.
