The Chicago Bulls this past offseason went through a major roster shuffle that included the addition of Dwyane Wade via free agency. This has boosted the expectations around the franchise for this upcoming season. In a recent interview with Chicago Tribune, Wade has quickly tempered those expectations for his team.
Wade said Bulls’ focus has to be on improving day-to-day to point they’re playoff team again. Called goal of winning title “unrealistic.”

This may come off the wrong way to some fans, but Wade is just keeping his expectations realistic about the upcoming season. The Bulls have the potential to be a top team in the East, but that’s if their trio of Wade, Rajon Rondo, and Jimmy Butler can coexist on the floor together. There is still plenty to work out in terms of chemistry and feel for each other on the court.
The primary goal should be getting to the playoffs after the disastrous 2015-16 season that saw them miss it for the first time in several years. Each of their other aspirations will fall into place as the year rolls on. All in all, the Bulls will be a team to watch this upcoming season.
