Why the Chicago Bulls shouldn’t sign Russell Westbrook: No need for a ball-dominant scorer
The Chicago Bulls go as far as DeRozan and LaVine will take them. Some fans were annoyed that the front office didn’t do more to surround the core with better players but at the end of the day, if the top-end talent isn’t there, Chicago isn’t going to make a lot of noise in the playoffs.
