“I think we’re going to be really good. We didn’t land the “big name” pieces, but we got a lot of pieces that fit really well together and at the end of the day I think chemistry is something that’s really overlooked and I think it’s going to be one of our strongest suits, you know. … I think we have guys that can play off each other really well, especially with three guys coming over from Utah. We know each other’s games inside and out being that we’ve played with each other for several years now. We know what each other does well and we know what we don’t do so well and we’re able to kind of cover for that and help each other do what it is that we do well.”
It certainly won’t hurt team chemistry that three of our new guys already have significant experience playing together. And hopefully all the pieces — both new and old — fit well. It’ll be interesting to see how coach Tom Thibodeau assembles all the parts, what kind of game plan he’s going to use.
As a Bulls fan, I want a title. That would be amazing. But I know the odds are against it. I mean, every season, only one team out of 30 goes all the way. Which is why the chemistry thing is important to me. I want to see good basketball. I want to see players who enjoy playing together and are all on the same page. I want to see court smarts and hustle.
And hopefully, with the level of talent the Bulls have, that will lead to lots of wins.
