Also, he shoots three-pointers very well, so we can say that Bulls got even stronger this summer, maybe they are finally climbing from the hole in which they were past few years. However hard to imagine them reaching playoffs this year. But if they will keep investing in young, passionate and ambitious players, next year they may reach playoffs. Of course, all teams must perform well to keep those players. And Bulls have a good opportunity to start their season with a win.
It was a magical season for Raptors as they became the first Canada team to win NBA Championship. However, they lost Kawhi Leonard, who joined the Clippers. This is a huge blow for the team and although team owners talk about how they want to win NBA once again, without such a player it is almost impossible. Also, team left Jeremy Lin and Danny Green. Basically, Raptors lost 2 starting 5 players from last season, so this will be a very difficult season for Canadians.
