Last season, the Chicago Bulls made a significant advancement in their pursuit of a seventh championship. Their offseason acquisition of DeMar DeRozan propelled them to a guaranteed playoff berth. They were defeated by the Milwaukee Bucks early in the season, which was unfortunate for them. Despite this, there are still good reasons to have faith in the team.
However, one former Bulls player is skeptic about the Bulls’ prospects for the upcoming season. One of the key figures in the team’s dynasty in the 1990s, Scottie Pippen, offered his opinion of the current lineup. Pippen acknowledged the team’s outstanding performance during the regular season. The legend, however, had this to say about the playoffs. (Source: NBC Sports
“I believe that they sort of reverted to the position that they have held for the past 10 or 15 years (during the postseason).” Simply put, they’re not a postseason-ready team, Pippen said. “They suffered some injuries this year, but the other teams are getting better,”
Pippen also emphasized the Eastern Conference’s emerging talent, which includes players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid. Pippen thinks they won’t get very far because of the presence of these players and the Bulls’ largely silent offseason. Although it may sound harsh, there is a lot of truth in what is said.
DeMar DeRоzan hasn’t yet demоnstrated in his career that he can dоminate in the pоstseasоn. The Bulls are unlikely tо advance very far in the pоstseasоn withоut acquiring a player with a similar level оf dоminance. Maybe they can make a mоve оn a particular displeased star in Brооklyn?
