Bulls SG Alex Caruso’s championship reaction to Tim Hardaway Jr. declaring Chicago ‘back’
It’s a great time for Chicago Bulls fans, as their team continues to hover near the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference. While doubts on the Bulls’ legitimacy as a true title have been immediately cast by naysayers after Chicago went on a 4-0 start against teams that didn’t make the playoffs last season, Alex Caruso and company have done a magnificent job of silencing their critics. Following back-to-back losses to the Philadelphia 76ers, the Bulls are now back on track with two consecutive wins against teams inside the playoff picture of their respective conferences.
Chicago defeated the loaded Brooklyn Nets last Monday and the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, both at home, which prompted Mavs guard Tim Hardaway Jr. to speak up on Chicago’s resurgence, per Jamal Collier of ESPN.
“All I can say is, the Bulls are back, man,” Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. said.
Caruso knows how his team’s hot start is invigorating Windy City, but at the same time, he wants to temper down on comparisons people are making between the old Bulls and the new Bulls.
“Eleven games into the season, I don’t think you can say anybody’s back, especially for the prestige of the Bulls. They won three championships in a row twice. Being back, that’s a big statement.”
Spoken like a true GOAT.
