Richard Hamilton has been out of action for most of the year, but finally seems to be healthy. He’s battled a ton of nagging injuries (along with Derrick Rose), and now would be a great time to shake those off as the playoffs are right around the corner. The Chicago Bulls are likely going to clinch up the 1 seed for the second straight year, and will likely meet the Miami Heat in the conference finals for the 2nd straight year. Last year, the Heat took it to the Bulls pretty good- however this year is completely different- all because of Richard Hamilton
What’s important for the Bulls is Hamilton’s ability to move without the ball, and create his own shot. Last year, Derrick Rose had to do everything himself without a lot of help and that can’t happen again. If the Bulls want to be a finals contender, they’re going to need Richard Hamilton to do the things he does well.
If Hamilton proves to be a weapon, the Bulls are going to be dangerous. It’s going to allow Derrick Rose to pick his spots, run the offense, and distribute the basketball a little bit more than usual, and that’s where the Bulls are great. This is one of the few teams out there that go 10 players deep, and that’s fun to watch. Either way, this team is going to have a major shot, but it’ll depend on Hamilton and how he performs in the postseason. I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t wait to see how the Bulls react this year. They aren’t far away from being a title team, so let’s hope Richard Hamilton can serve as the 2nd go to guy on the offensive side of the floor.
