The Chicago Bulls are 14-13 on the season, and frankly playing a little better than that record suggests. While the offense is pedestrian — and the predicted lack of shooting has caught up with them — they have a top 10 defense and look like a playoff team in the muddled East. That’s about as much as should be expected from this team.
However, as the Bulls were getting drilled by the Bucks at home last Friday, the fans booed.
Dwyane Wade didn’t like that at all. Via Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago.com.
Fans pay a lot of money for seats and to see their team play, and they have the right to boo. It’s easy for us to sit at home watching on League Pass and say “it’s just one of those nights” or “it’s a schedule loss,” but for the fans that pay to see the product they are understandably frustrated. Can’t blame them for that.
Wade is right in the big picture, this is a solid Bulls team playing about as well as could be hoped, and with a couple of signature wins. They just happened to stink up the joint for a night. But Wade wanted to go home where the expectations were high — Chicago is not a town where if the home team had a bad night the fans just say “oh, well, let’s go get some mojitos and ceviche.” He left that place. And his new home is going to come with some scrutiny.
