The Chicago Bulls will tip off their regular season against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night at the United Center. I know hopes for Year 3 of this core stand about as high as Mogusy Bogus, but I’m also a sick human being who will always enjoy a fresh season of Chicago Bulls basketball!
This is especially true when we consider they have a couple of very winnable games on the calendar to start the year. Opening night will see the Oklahoma City Thunder come to town. As bright as their future is, this is a very young group that is looking to establish a more efficient offensive identity. These are the kinds of games where “continuity” is supposed to provide the advantage, right?
Matt Rooney and I got into some of the key things to watch on the latest episode, as well as described why we expect this to be a tight battle for the Chicago Bulls.
