A culture-changing season for the Chicago Bulls ends in a disappointing manner
The Chicago Bulls had a stellar season in comparison with their previous season. The arrival of Demar DeRozan and Lonzo Ball really made them a good team, and it was quite visible in the regular season.
However, injuries to their star players completely ruined their season. Zach Lavine, Alex Caruso, Patrick Williams, and Lonzo Ball missed a huge proportion of their season due to injuries.
Nevertheless, they should take pride in their season as changed the culture around the franchise. The team looked good after many years, and it was their first postseason appearance in 5 years.
Things are looking bright for the Bulls in the future, and some good acquisitions in the offseason can make them a legitimate contender next season.
