Little do we all know, the Chicago Bulls are in the best position in their race for the NBA championship. Sure they’re not off to a hot start like everyone thought they would be after finally welcoming back their MVP Derrick Rose, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. When you’re looking down the road at a long 82 game season, the key is pace! Its better that the Bulls work through their team issues now, than down the road entering the playoffs.
My mother always told me that anything good will take time. You must put in the work in order to reap from what you sow. Becoming a championship caliber team doesn’t happen overnight. If we look back at the 2011 Dallas Mavericks team, I’m sure we all didn’t see them coming when they went on an epic championship run. Who thought that they would beat Miami’s Big three? They trotted through their race like that dark horse coming from behind, everyone sleeping on their presence. Surely we shouldn’t do the same for this Bulls team! They’ve proven in spurts that they can be a team worthy of the Larry O’Brien trophy. Now Chicago must put forth their best basketball on a consistent basis, for a full 48 minutes.
And we as fans should steadily watch the growth and the strides that takes place game by game. So in the end when the Bulls get to the finish line, we can proudly say that we were running right alongside that dark horse!
