I know what you're thinking. Hey, that Derrick Rose guy was awesome in college! Joakim Noah is fun! Tyrus Thomas makes highlight plays. And wasn't that the same team that played in that awesome series vs. the Celtics? All true. But this is a new year, and let me tell you, this team has absolutely no cohesion. There is no organized "offense," just Rose dribbling around the perimeter and Luol Deng and John Salmons shooting contested 20-footers (the worst shot in pro basketball). Rookie forward Taj Gibson is lauded for being cerebral, which should tell you something about his entertainment value. It's the classic case of a team who is so much worse than the sum of its parts.
(Though it is funny to watch Vinny Del Negro's "coaching" in action. "We missed a couple of freethrows, they got a couple of offensive rebounds, we missed a couple of shots! NO BIG DEAL!!")
It's awfully hard to argue with this. I don't get to spend a lot of time watching non-Bulls basketball, but I can't imagine a team less watchable than the Bulls who are among the worst teams in the NBA on offense and don't even come up with many wow plays given their supposed youth and athleticism.
Sad for me that I'm still watching every game then eh?
