The Chicago Bulls 2022-23 season is on the verge of going off the rails, and we aren’t even halfway through it yet. The Bulls have had the same problems that plagued them during the second half of the 2021-22 season pop up again, and they have quickly become one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA so far.

Dragic opened up on the Bulls’ struggles, and it doesn’t offer an encouraging outlook

The Bulls have a lot of talent on their roster, with DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine, and Nikola Vucevic leading the way. But they have never clicked together for whatever reason, resulting in Chicago crawling out to an 11-18 record so far. That is well below what the Bulls and their fans were hoping for, and at 11th place in the Eastern Conference, they wouldn’t even qualify for the Play-In Tournament if the season ended today.

Everyone knows by now that the Bulls are in rough shape, and from the sounds of it, it doesn’t seem like things will be getting better anytime soon. Goran Dragic opened up on the team’s struggles, and his insight on their woes offers a concerning outlook for the Bulls and their fans, who are hoping that the team will be able to turn things around this season.

Can the Bulls save their season?

It’s not a stretch to say that the Bulls are in jeopardy of watching their season go down the drain in the next 10 or 15 games. They are already way behind the top teams in their conference, and it looks like they are at risk of falling out of the running for a spot in the Play-In Tournament as well. Granted, it’s still early in the season, but overcoming the hole that the Bulls have dug themselves into is tough.

Chicago hasn’t looked right since Lonzo Ball went out with a strange knee injury in January last season, and their star trio has struggled to keep up their offensive production without him. Dragic’s comments show that the Bulls are struggling to find a true facilitator of their offense without Ball on the floor.

Until the Bulls get someone who can conduct the offense for the team rather than themselves, they will likely be in a lot of trouble. Right now, their season appears to be going off the rails, but there is still time to change their future outlook. But as Dragic’s comments here show, there are some deep-rooted problems the Bulls are facing, and if they don’t figure them out soon, they will be in a lot of trouble as the season progresses.
