It’s difficult to not let the repeated voices, bad-mouthing, and negative criticism gets caught up in our minds and has an effect on our opinions and viewpoints. With the technological advancements over the years, things have just gotten out of hand in many ways. We click on a Google article to read about the Chicago Bulls’ losing season, and the first thing we see is crushing remarks about the head coach and staff.

The majority of people walking around will, in turn, continue to read the article, get wishy-washy in their thinking process, and take their comprehension into play by believing and agreeing with the context. Honestly, this is a natural reaction. The bold, firm, and high-strung individuals will do the opposite and will do it with utmost sincerity. They will stand up for what is right, even if that means they are standing alone or with few followers.

We are downright fools to have any kind of specific say on what goes on inside an NBA organization. We don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, what interactions that are taking place, what struggles are happening to players, or particular relationship issues. It takes a whole lot to not only be an NBA professional athlete but to also lead the team and coach. Sure, we watch games, see highlights, view stats, watch teams in huddles, and look at post-game press conferences. Because of this, we feel we are inclined to state what we want to. We all need to take a step backward and put ourselves in these individuals’ shoes.

Head coach Billy Donovan has had an immensely positive impact on the Chicago Bulls organization.

Chicago Bulls head coach, Billy Donovan, is in the midst of wrapping up his third season leading this Bulls team. Donovan’s track record and history speaks for itself and shows exactly why he is not only a significant coach, but a tremendous human being. He is known for his humble and modest demeanor of shying away from publicity and attention.

In many ways, Donovan was the SEC equivalent of “Coach K” while at the helm of Florida’s basketball program for 20 years. His tenure at Florida and the Oklahoma City Thunder  he can be a winning coach. We have seen glimpses of this in Chicago as well.

Coach Donovan has put in almost three solid seasons with the Bulls. Yes, these seasons have been an “up and down roller coaster ride.” However, his time in the Windy City has been relatively successful all things considered.  Things were a tad rocky in his first season in 2020-2021, but this last season was one to remember for him. Leading the team to a consistent top-two placement in the East through much of the season proves he’s a capable leader, mentor, and guide for a team that could be something special.

With this current season long underway, we have been very disappointed about the Bulls’ play. The men compete from start to finish, play games close, take some into overtime, and then can’t pull them out. It’s been the story a lot this season. With key plaguing injuries, this has really struck the entire team very heavily.

There are still a ton of games to be played this season. Though the Bulls are ranked 11th in the East with a 11-17 overall record, this cannot get into their heads or take a toll on their performances. I see loads of comparisons and similarities between the Bulls and the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are ranked 10th in the West with a 14-16 overall record. When fully healthy, I believe that Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan are the two top drivers and finishers of the NBA just like Steph Curry is the top shooter of the NBA.

Fantastic things are in store for Coach Donovan, the rest of the staff, and the squad. Spirits need to be up at all times, and success will be the result. Coach Donovan is an amazing coach and will continue to get these guys playing Bulls ball and get the wins tallied back in the column.

Next. Bulls need to commit to winning or losing. dark
