“Honestly, it’s different shooting outside than it is inside. We’re just having fun; raising as much money, raising as much money as we can – but definitely a little tight for me out there. It took me a little bit to get my rhythm down,” Ardiciacano said. “I mean, I love being a part of the Chicago Bulls – knowing that you have an offseason that’s more normal with a head coach who really is trying to emphasize establishing a culture – offense and defense and whatnot – so I think it’s going to be a great thing for our team, and we’ll see what happens when the season and training camp happens.”MORE NEWS: Data Show More Than 100 Carjackings In Austin Community This Year, Just 5 Not Far Away In Hermosa
The Bulls also acquired Nikola Vucevic midseason, so a full offseason for him with the team should be good too.
