Since the Bulls traded Luol Deng to Cleveland earlier this week, there’s been talk in Chicago of tanking. Of the lottery and rebuilding. Of Derrick Rose’s future and losing an identity.
After taking part in the Bulls’ morning shootaround Friday morning, heretofore hobbled power forward Carlos Boozer said he felt great. “Terrific,” even.
The Bulls, despite trading their best available player earlier this week, are currently on a three-game winning streak and have won six of their past eight contests.
