Why The Chicago bulls are frauds
By: Anthony Krenek
Well, Well, Well here we are at the beginning of March and we are getting towards the end of the regular season for the NBA. This 2021-2022 season has been a good one, but there are some NBA teams out there who I believe are not as good as their record shows. The main team that stands out to me is the Chicago Bulls. The time this article is being written at Chicago stands at 39-23 and they’re 1st in the Central Division. Demar DeRozen has been going crazy this year and I am not discrediting him in any way; he deserves praise for his play on the court. This Chicago Bulls team has a great supporting cast with players such as Zach Lavine, Lonzo Ball, Nikola Vucevic and Alex Caruso. This team has a lot of talent, but when the NBA playoffs come it is the best competition that we get in the NBA. In my opinion I just don’t see this team making a deep playoff run. Chicago is a regular season team who got off to a hot start at the beginning of the season. They have been dealing with injuries such as Patrick Williams with a wrist injury, Lonzo Ball with a knee injury and Alex Caruso who also has a wrist injury. Those three players are very key role players for how the Bulls run their system.
Injuries are unpredictable, but even if the team is healthy I just don’t see how they can get past the second round of the playoffs. Teams such as Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Miami and of course Brooklyn will pound this Chicago Bulls team into the dirt. When it comes April and the playoffs start teams are going to find ways to shut down Demar DeRozen. Who is going to step up for the Bulls? I am a very big Zach Lavine fan, but he has no experience in the playoffs. Nobody besides Demar DeRozen has deep playoff basketball experience and I believe that it is going to show in their first round matchup. Demar DeRozen has fit like a glove in the system that the Bulls are running. He is averaging 28.4 points per game. He is a MVP caliber player, but at the end of the day I believe that teams are going to find a way to shut him down. I just don’t see anyone on this team stepping up to contribute to help them win a playoff series. Will the Bulls prove me wrong? I don’t think so and when they get eliminated in the second round I will be screaming from the rooftops “I CALLED IT’.
