Usually, being a Chicago Bulls fan is a great time. The team always looks great playing, with plenty of fancy moves and energizing teamwork that is fun to watch. However, with some talk that the Bulls are lacking a superstar player, not everyone sees what all the hype is about.
The Chicago Bulls might not be home to a player like Stephen Curry or Russell Westbrook, but that is no reason to write them off as one of the best teams in the league. Instead of one superstar player, the Bulls have amazing team players and an ability to find a rhythm between each other, which is what being a good basketball team should aim for!
If you have never been to a Bulls game in person, this is something you have to see to really understand. If a game is sold out, there are always plenty of resale tickets. If you aren’t sure if websites like Vivid Seats or Ticketnetwork are legit, stick to something like StubHub.
To prepare for the joy of seeing the team in action, here are some of the 5 best players on the Chicago Bulls in 2021!
Lonzo Ball, Point Guard, #2
With a last name like Ball, is it any wonder that Lonzo has found the top spot in this list? Drafted in 2017 from UCLA and joining the Chicago Bulls this year, Ball has been a key part of some of the most exciting moments in the Chicago Bulls season. He might be new to the team but he has really earned a nod as a great addition to the team.
This season, Lonzo Ball has played 17 games total. So far, Ball has a very impressive 43.6% rate in 3 pointers and 83.3% for free throws.
Tony Bradley, Center Forward, #13
Also joining the NBA in 2017 from the University of North Carolina is Tony Lee Bradley Jr. Just this year in 2021 he signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bulls and has done an excellent job of proving his merit on the court.
Having played a total of 14 games this season, Tony Bradley has a field goal rate of 53.3% and a rate of 80% for free throws.
Alex Caruso, Point Guard, #6
A point guard drafted from the University of Texas A&M in 2016, Alex Caruso signed a 4-year contract with the Chicago Bulls this year in 2021. Given his steady ascent as a player of extremely high quality, I am sure that we are going to see some magnificent things from Caruso in the next few years. He is guaranteed to be on the team.
Caruso has played in all 17 games this season, with a rate of 39.6% for field goals and 28.6% for three-pointers.
DeMar DeRozan, Guard Forward, #11
Joining the NBA from the University of Southern California in 2009, DeMar DeRozan already had a great start to his career with the Raptor before joining the Chicago Bulls this year.
DeRozan has been on the basketball court for all 17 games of the season, earning a rate of 48.9% for field goals and 36.4% for three-pointers.
Zack LaVine, Guard Forward, #8
Last, but certainly not least, is my personal favorite player — Zack LaVine. Not only has he won two Slam Dunk Contests, but he was also recognized as an NBA All-Star this year. Lavine came to the Chicago Bulls in 2017 and has become a fan favorite since.
In his 17 games on the court this season, he has scored a total of 26.5 points. Lavine’s field goal rate is a stunning 49% and his three-pointer is 38.7%
