Chicago Bulls off to historic start


Chicago Bull’s three stars.

     The Bulls have started this year 3-1 after being predicted to be in the bottom half of the league. It is still early in the season, but the Chicago fans are excited for the year

     The Chicago Bulls have made some very big changes coming into this season and it has shown in their success so far. The Bulls signed a big contract with Dwyane Wade over the off season and also signed former all-star Rajon Rondo to fill the position of Point Guard vacated by former Bull’s star Derrick Rose. These two moves have solidified the Bulls guard positions with some of the best guards in the NBA. Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade, and Rajon Rondo are a tough match for any team out there and the Bulls will compete with some very good teams. However, they have lost their two big guys down low. Both Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah. Noah was a former defensive player of the year, and Gasol was an all-star in each of his two years with the Bulls. This leaves the Bulls a lot weaker down low in the paint.

     Also, the Bulls lost three-point threat Mike Dunleavy leaving them weak from three. The Bull’s are going to need guys like Doug McDermott to step up this year, otherwise the Bulls are going to be very closed in around the rim.

     The Bulls lack of size is going to mean a lot of trouble for their rebounds this year. They also have a huge lack of experience in eight of their guys, which all have two or less years in the NBA. However, Wade and Rondo are entering their 14th and 11th seasons respectively and are going to fill a much needed leadership role on the court.

     Over all, the Bulls are having some quick success so far, but they may have some trouble keeping their success going this year with their lack of size and experience.
