The Chicago Bulls’ 2013-14 season certainly hasn’t been what fans expected, but there are some reasons to celebrate.
There have also been some outstanding individual performances from Noah and Gibson, which should give the Bulls plenty of hope as they keep grinding through the season.
Chicago has shown that they aren’t going to roll over for anyone because their roster doesn’t stack up to others on paper. Tom Thibodeau won’t allow it and the players won’t either, and they've shown it with a 23-22 record and a possibility for a top-four seed.
It’s been a tough and ugly season, but like Thibodeau has said before, he doesn’t care about aesthetics.
So what can Bulls fans take away from the first half of the 2013-14 season?
