Despite a rough outing, the Chicago Bulls’ season opener is just one game.
It was just one game, and one game is all the Chicago Bulls should treat it as. In their 2020-2021 season opener against the Atlanta Hawks, the Bulls were routed. The final score of 124-104 did not even come close to depicting the full lashing Chicago received, as they were once down by 40 points.
But, for a team under a brand-new head coach, let’s give them some grace. It will take a bit of time before the Bulls get into a groove. Also remember, the Bulls weren’t entering this season with championship aspirations. At this point, if they were to shape up and squeak into the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, this season would be a resounding success.
