As the Chicago Bulls get set to enter the regular season soon, we look at one area every starter can improve upon in 2018-2019.

It’s been too long since we’ve been able to see the Chicago Bulls on the United Center court. While this team doesn’t necessarily have championship aspirations, they will certainly be better than last year. Head coach Fred Hoiberg seems to be coming into his own and has a youthful team ready to run.

More from Da Windy City

The Bulls are nearly ready to open the regular season on October 18th against one of the surprises of the NBA last year, the Philadelphia 76ers. Chicago will have their hands full with the young, talented core in Philly. But, in any event, it will be great to have Bulls basketball back once again.

Chicago is looking at a starting five which includes Kris Dunn in his second year with the team, Zach LaVine freshly-inked to a 4-year extension, Jabari Parker who has returned to his hometown, Lauri Markkanen in his second season as a pro, and (probably) veteran center Robin Lopez. We’ll get to that “probably” a bit later.

If you haven’t heard yet, though, the team will be playing without Markkanen for a bit, so we’ll see who ends up garnering a starting spot in the meantime — also more on that later.

From last year to this year, there have been changes. Guys have set out to improve in certain areas. But, which areas? I’m ready to dig into which areas I want to see every single starter improve in 2018-2019. Let’s go.
