Chicago Bulls Deepest Team in NBA?
Mike James was playing in the D-League showcase a couple weeks ago. Now he’s the backup point guard on the best team in the league.
Yes, life is pretty sweet for the grizzled NBA veteran right now. But the fact that James came in and dropped nine points and 10 assists in the Chicago Bulls’ 95-89 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night just reinforces the same points that everyone around town has been trying to make for several weeks now.
The Bulls have the deepest team in the league.
The type of team that is capable of doing very big things down the line, like winning a championship.
“Championship teams are not built on individuals,” James said. “It’s built on a team. It’s not just the starters that make a championship roster. It’s everyone from 1-15. So you have to be able to step in if your number’s called, you have to be able to play your role and that’s all I was trying to do.”
