The Bulls’ defense should also be as prominent as always, with lockdown defenders like Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah anchoring the defensive unit. At Iowa State, Hoiberg coached his team to the NCAA Division I’s 23rd ranked defense. The fact that Hoiberg joins an organization with so many pieces already in place only makes his transition to the NBA more promising. The Bulls figure to once again be instant contenders for the championship next season, most likely with an improved offense and the same tough, intense defense that has characterized the Chicago Bulls for so long. Bulls fans everywhere should be excited for next season, as the future is looking very bright in Chicago.
