After not winning a playoff game in the past four seasons and grappling with inconsistent quarterback play, former Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson made the switch to the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in March. The Pro Bowler thinks another Chicago sports star should also be looking for greener pastures: Bulls guard Zach LaVine.
In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Robinson wrote, “Zach Lavine to Dallas or Portland would be a great fit.” The 28-year-old also tweeted LA is a “good” match for LaVine, but he hasn’t confirmed whether he was referring to the Los Angeles Lakers or the Los Angeles Clippers.
It’s hard to blame Robinson for his attitude toward Chicago. During his Bears career, the former Penn State star had Mitchell Trubisky, Nick Foles, Andy Dalton and a freshman Justin Fields throwing the ball to him — and his coach was the now-fired Matt Nagy. Despite this, Robinson produced two seasons with over 95 catches and 1,100 yards.
Like Robinson, LaVine has put up some smashing singles in Chicago but is yet to make the second round of the playoffs. LaVine’s best shot came this year, the Bulls’ only postseason trip since his arrival in 2017-18, but the Milwaukee Bucks dominated them 4-1 in the first round.
LaVine is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so he can take Robinson’s advice if he wants to. Whatever team gets LaVine, it’s getting an offensive phenomenon, as the UCLA product has averaged at least 24 points and four assists each season over the past three seasons.
