The game of basketball is hard to predict. Teams get a clean slate each season, and start to change how their team is viewed by others. The Chicago Bulls finished last season in a postseason exit in Milwaukee. However, their early season luck has been non-existent. These are my takes on the state of the Bulls currently, and how they can improve.
The Bulls have brought back most of last year's team along with new players like Andre Drummond and Goran Dragic. After viewing their loss 108-107 to Orlando the other night I have concerns. Zach Lavine is not playing to his potential matched with his large contract extension. There is not much consistent chemistry with Nikola Vucevic at the center position. I believe this negatively impacts post-play for Chicago.
The front court of the Bulls is a serious issue. More size and post-play are necessary to help the Bulls compete more consistently. The coaching staff is too set in their ways to make changes. Head coach Billy Donovan has the potential to lead this team in the right direction. Bulls fans should not fear as this season is still early thus far. Chicago Bulls players need a wake-up call as they sit in fourth place in their division behind Milwaukee, Cleveland, and the young Indiana Pacers. Get it going Bulls because Chicago needs you at your best.
