Since the Bears are in a free-fall…yet again. Let’s set our sights on the Bulls. I said earlier in my blogging history that I would a preview on the starting five Bulls. Apparently, Boozer “fell over his bag” (or punched a wall), so I’m not sure who else to preview. However, I will preview two folks that have a chance to start this season that begins on Wednesday.
Years Pro: eight
09-10 Stats: 4.4 ppg, 1.2 apg, .6 spg
Pros: a defensive-savvy veteran. Bogans has been apart of many winning teams and brings that experience.
Cons: Not much of a shooter. Bogans has essentially taken the spot of long time Bull Kirk Hinrich.
Outlook: Bogans will fill the defensive-minded Thibodeau’s scheme. However, with Bogans filling the Hinrich role, the Bulls have stacked their team with role players to make him have some value. It looks as if Bogans will get the start, for now. However, Kyle Korver or CJ Watson might be the sg after a couple of months, for more scoring opportunties.
Years Pro: three
09-10 Stats: 10.7 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 2.1 apg
Pros: A player that enjoys working hard inside the trenches. Very good at cleaning up garbage under the rim and tip ins. Noah likes to attack the rim, and adds a little 15-foot shot that he’s beginning to knock down (as of last year). Noah and Rose showed a little chemistry last year as they sometimes went back and forth trading assists.
Cons: He battled plantars faciitis last season, and was out for 18 games. The injury hopefully is cleared up by this seasons so he doesn’t have to take a trip to the Caribbean midway through the year.
Outlook: The Bull’s second or third most valuable player. Like I stated earlier, the man loves playing ball in the trenches, and is very physical. His point totals might decrease once Boozer comes back. Noah will always be there to follow-up garbage shots.
