Kyle Korver: Team Chemistry = Good

From SLAM:

“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.

    Bulls are the underdogs, but theyre going to win the title over the Heat. If they dont win then im not innocent. Im willing to bet.

    Bulls have a lot of new pieces that fit well. If the team is able to mesh quickly – watch out… The bulls are loaded – unlike the punks in Miami.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we won it all either this year or next year. I can only imagine all the good will that will be funneling towards this team if we meet the Heat in the Conf. Finals. (The team the big three spurned starring a hometown hero who actually is very humble and wants to be here and a bunch of good character high chemistry guys.)

    Yup, I totally agree and who knows maybe before the trading deadline of 2011 we mate acquire 1 or 2 players that mate put us over the edge against Miami, Orlando, Boston and even the Lakers. Hopefully without the Bulls trading their strong valuable players like Noah, Rose and Boozer. So they can win their 7th championship title.

    GO BULLS!!!

    This Bulls team is totally closer to a 7th NBA title and counting with Noah than Carmelo Anthony and so many other good players. Chicago must keep Noah in the Windy City if Chicago is totally serious about returning to that greatness they once had in the 90’s. GO BULLS!!!!

    It’s not necessarily about overall talent, it’s about finding players that work well with each other. If you don’t believe me, ask some of the US squads from past years. If you think that we didn’t have vastly more talent on our squad in 2004 than Puerto Rico, you’re a fool. If you think we were less talented than Greece in 2006, you’re a fool.

    I think Miami is going to learn an important lesson that’s been taught to American squads in the past. It’s not simply a matter of grabbing good players, throwing them together and saying, “Go win it all”.

    How could you not write anything about the fact that CJ Watson is the third side of floyd mayweather’s love triangle?

    Camp starts in 9 more days, then we will start to see if there isw chemistry on the 2010/11 Bulls. I can’t believe that I am looking forward to the NBA season more than the NFL season. I guess I have no faith in Cutler.

    you should be believing in Cutler after today

    I’ll start believing in Cutler when heleads the Bears past the Pack…
