Chicago Bulls: Do They Need a Better Bench?

+Read full article
Chicago Bulls

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

The one thing that may separate the Chicago Bulls from the Larry O’ Brien trophy is there teams’ bench performance. They already have a solid superstar leader in Derrick Rose, a passionate on-court presence in Joakim Noah, and a solid scorer in Loul Deng, but do they need a better bench surrounding their core guys?

It’s been no secret that over the years the Bulls’ team have been fully acquainted with letting Defense be their main focal point in the way there team plays. With that being said, if players like Carlos BoozerTaj GibsonKirk HinrichMarquis Teague and the fellow bulls bench lock in on their defense, this Bulls’ team will be fine without the additions of any new bench players. The focus should now be set on working with the guys they have now making sure everyone is set on the same goal.

The most important part of building a team is making sure the chemistry is healthy between the players, even if you have to create bonding moments between the players like going out as a team or taking trips together. The focus should be on team development, not just on the basketball court, but making sure the players have a good relationship with their fellow teammates. So far, the chemistry and signs of trust that the Bulls’ team are showing makes you think that there team is just fine the way they are for now. Even though its still the preseason, the Bulls’ team have been looking up to positive things!

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
