    Chicago Bulls Best Start Since 1996-97 Season, 4-0

    The Chicago Bulls are off to the franchise’s best start since the 1966-67 season, per ESPN. They improved to 4-0 on Monday night with a victory over the Toronto Raptors, 111-108. They had a busy off-season during free agency pulling key pieces. The Bulls seem to be reaping the benefits of their latest additions already.

    Bulls guard Lonzo Ball’s shooting has greatly improved since he’s come into the league. This past Monday, he knocked down five three-pointers for 15 points and five assists. The media sensation Alex Caruso pitched in with eight points off the bench and collected four steals on the defensive end. The All-Star DeMar DeRozan who spent the first nine years of his career in Toronto scored 11 out of the 26 points in the fourth quarter. Not to mention, some key buckets in the clutch.

    Undeniably, the Bull’s best player at the moment, Zach LaVine went for 22 points combined with all the help of his teammates that was previously mentioned. This is the result, of why the Bulls are a team to be reckoned with this year and having their hottest start in nearly 25 years.

    “Part of the reason why I even chose to come to Chicago was everyone was eager to be successful, to want to win,” DeRozan said after Monday’s game. “Everybody had that chip on their shoulder, from the city to the organization to the players that I spoke to.”

    “That was everybody’s mindset, it’s all about winning now. We’re not in a development stage, we want to win now,” DeRozan continued.

    How talented are the Chicago Bulls?

    The Bulls are off to a scorching hot start; however, their schedule only continues to get tougher and will provide a much better gauge of how well they match up with other contenders in the Eastern Conference.

    In their next six games, they look to play the New York Knicks, Utah Jazz, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Brooklyn Nets. This will naturally provide a better understanding of how good this Bulls team can be.

    “We’ve got a long way to go,” DeRozan said. “We’ve got a lot more to clean up, to learn. It’s a long season, man. [The 4-0 start] is great, but we’ve got a lot more basketball to go. We can’t carry this record like it’s some kind of badge of honor; we’ve got to understand that the next game is going to be even harder.”

    “I think we have a lot of high-character guys. We all want to win and we want to win together,” Ball said. “I think when you have a bunch of guys on the same team with the same common goal and the same mindset it makes it easier for the chemistry to click. That’s what’s going on.”
