Hinrich, Deng, Hunter are captains; Rose, Noah have options picked up

A couple of minor notes.  The players voted on captains and Hinrich, Deng, and Hunter are the captains (per the score, per realgm reader).   Also, per the Bulls PR email notification, they've picked up options on Noah and Rose (shocking I know). Seeing as the options are a complete no brainer, let's discuss the captaincy a bit.  

The primary thing that's interesting is that Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah are whom most Bulls fans would consider the most important pieces going forward and neither are captains.   The choices are logical, so it's hard to argue with the guys who are included.  Deng and Kirk are returning captains and Hunter makes sense since his job is basically assistant coach in a player's uniform. 

However, it's still interesting that the players most fans would identify as most important to our future are not captains.  The players voted on captains, I'm not sure if players put themselves up for nomination which might raise the question did Rose or Noah ask to be a captain? 

Something worth asking next time I'm at a Bulls practice.

  • Rose needs to be a captain. I don't get the Deng pick.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Agreed... Deng isn't a vocal leader and he can't really lead by example while he's still not full strength and might start the season God-awful. The only thing Deng should be captain of is a pirate freighter outside of Somalia. (Although I do agree with a statement Doug said earlier that he might turn it around near December.)

    TyThomas should of been Captain. Period.

  • In reply to Simeon2UC:

    Tyrus is so stupid he probably didnt even know what he was voting for. How could he be captain? a team with him as a captain is a ship that would sink fast. Good choices. Rose seems not a talkative guy but who will lead on the court.

    Geez

  • In reply to Simeon2UC:

    im a Gator Grad and a diehard Bulls fan.....is there really anyone who actually wonders why Noah isn't a captain? really?

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    I like the idea of having the PG's as captains. Rose could captain the starting lineup and Hinrich the bench. Oh well.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Rose should have really been the captain. I can understand guys look up to kirk and lindsey but deng has no business being a captain. Rose needs to learn to lead and with all three captains being our pgs we would always have one on the floor. What a waste. Do we have any clue how to develop talent?
