Alex Caruso trusts the potential of the current Bulls

Chicago was one of the most surprising teams last season. Those from Illinois not only returned to the playoffs after four years of absence, but also went up to 46 wins in the regular season, a figure they had not reached since 2015. The step forward was remarkable, but the Bulls had a certain feeling that with a bit of luck they could have done more. Perhaps they are right. Injuries to key players like Lonzo Ball weighed them down when they seemed to be on the go. Alex Caruso speaks exactly about it. The guard He is optimistic about a 2022-23 season in which he sees his own team as a dangerous rival if injuries are respected.

“I don’t know if we get to see our full potential. To have so many guys having to miss so many games… Lonzo not being able to come back and play in the playoffs… They are big absences that damage the symmetry, the chemistry, the ability to create habits throughout the season. I think we’re a really good team with some really good pieces that have a chance to be really special if we can work and get to where we need to be,” he tells Joe Cowley of Chicago Sun-Times.

Caruso was one of those players who missed quite a few games last season. After several minor physical problems, a hard foul by Grayson Allen kept him away from the courts for up to two months. He returned shortly before the playoffs and once again showed the intensity that he always brings to the parquet. Now, thinking about what lies ahead, he is working on improving his body.

“I just try to gain a little bit of weight, a little bit of muscle in the lower extremities, a little bit in my back as well… And then, you know, work on my game. I have been in the gym for the last month and a half », she warns.
