There aren’t many talking about the Bulls this season, but there figure to be a lot around the NBA wondering about them. Especially in Chicago. With more than half the roster new and including two players who have started for championship teams and three long-time All Stars, the Bulls on paper appear to have the makings of excellence.

Jerry Reinsdorf says, as we all understand, it’s never like the first time.

The Bulls have a chance to be much improved, and what’s wrong with that?

That Thursday was the message from General Manager Gar Forman, who spoke to reporters at the Advocate Center following Rajon Rondo’s introduction as the Bulls’ new point guard. Forman was not permitted comment by league rule about Dwyane Wade, who is expected to sign soon with …
