The Chicago Bulls have emerged as one of the main drivers of the offseason by adding important pieces to the roster. A team led by Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic that, from now on, will also feature DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, among others.
Some analysts and fans have been skeptical about the track compatibility of two pure scorers like LaVine and DeRozan. However, the two-time Dunk Contest champion was quick to close the debate by stating that it will pose no problem for the Bulls.
“I don’t understand that debate at all. Because it is only that, an external narrative, “said the escort according to the media. Heavy.com. “We are some of the best basketball players in the world and we know how to make something work. It’s our job to get out there and get to know each other, as people and as players. It’s easy to make things work on the court when everyone shares the same goal: to win. ”
The Bulls star also shared his feelings about the mindset they are trying to build as a group and how they will collectively resolve any issues.
“I don’t think anyone on this team is selfish,” LaVine said. “In the future, if this is the standard, we can solve anything because as basketball players we are very good, we work a lot and we care too much about this game.”
While both LaVine and DeRozan pack a lot of shots, they are also capable of contributing from inception. In fact, the already ex-Spurs registered his assists cap last season in San Antonio (6.9). In addition, having Lonzo Ball will bring discretion and distribution to the offensive system.
On paper, the Bulls now have all the necessary pieces to star in an important qualitative leap and fight in the noble zone of the Eastern Conference. Of course, the team will have to work from now on and demonstrate that it lives up to these expectations.
