The first week of training camp was interesting for the Chicago Bulls.
Of course, Derrick Rose stole all the attention and will continue to do so for the rest of the season. When you're a superstar who missed an entire year recovering from ACL surgery, you're going to receive a lot of attention. That's just how it goes.
Chicago looked good during their first preseason game, beating the rival Indiana Pacers, 82-76, on the road. Sure, it was just an exhibition game and not Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Yet, it was still a nice victory.
Bulls starting guard Jimmy Butler showcased improved ball-handling and was extremely aggressive, getting to the free-throw line several times. And the team's defense was on point, just like it always is when coach Tom Thibodeau is on the sideline.
