This is the first part in our 6 part series breaking down this championship caliber team the Bulls have put together. Over the last six games, we will breakdown the Bulls crucial pieces starting with the bench.
It has been nearly a decade since the Bulls were on the top of the NBA world. Since 1998, the Bulls have been struggling to build a team reminiscent of the Dynasty team of the 90’s. But now that the Bulls are back on top, and their team has been built from the ground up, the result is more than just reminiscent; it’s nearly identical.
Rose is the new MJ.
Noah is the new Pippen.
Thibodeau is the new Jackson.
The major pieces have parallels in terms of the Dynasty team and the current championship caliber team. But this current team, although it deserves to be compared and coupled with the 90’s squad, the fact of the matter is that this team is really unique all of it’s own. Each player on the roster has contributed to this championship caliber run for the Bulls.
It’s the very definition of a team effort.
