Tony Snell’s 20-Point Game Gives Chicago Bulls Hope For Future

Tony Snell

Dennis Wierzbicki – USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls have now had nine different players score 20 or more points in a game this season. While most have called Chicago’s 2013-14 campaign a lost cause since Derrick Rose‘s season-ending injury; a few of the Bulls younger players will tell you that this season is hardly pointless.

In fact, the Bulls’ youngest player is none other than first-year shooting guard Tony Snell, who definitely made his mark versus the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. Snell poured in a career-high 20 points as Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has to be happy with the rookie’s progression. Furthermore, Snell’s improvements have made the Luol Deng trade distant memory to a few Chicago fans.

Of course, Bulls general manager Gar Forman has a ton of decisions to make this offseason, but Snell is someone that can rest easy. Surely, the rookie guard has a great chance at being in Chicago’s starting line-up come October. Offense has been a major issue for the Bulls since Rose’s arrival, so even the idea of Snell putting up nearly 20 points per game is likely to make Thibodeau and company drool.

Thankfully, the NBA season is still rather young, which means the rookie Snell could make massive strides from now until the end of the year. One thing is for certain: Snell’s Friday night explosion isn’t going to be forgotten anytime soon.

While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage.

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.
