Charles Barkley makes a bold prediction about the Bulls.
People are becoming believers thanks to the Chicago Bulls. Charles Barkley, a Hall of Famer and NBA on TNT broadcaster, appears to be the most recent believer.
Barkley noted on a recent episode of the show that “the Bulls had a hell of a summer,” referring to the team’s offseason additions of DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball, and Alex Caruso. The Bulls are still my favorite team. “The Chicago Bulls will finish ahead of the Heat,” Barkley said after being briefly interrupted by Shaquille O’Neal, who is one of the few who has gone on record to appreciate what the Bulls did in the offseason.
The Bulls, according to Charles Barkley, will finish ahead of the heat.

The Bulls are about to enter a crucial stretch.
The Bulls have beaten the Detroit Pistons (twice), the New Orleans Pelicans (without Zion Williamson), and the Toronto Raptors in their first four games of the season (without Pascal Siakam). To their credit, the Bulls had 30-point leads in many games and won comfortably, despite nearly blowing the game against the Raptors late on Monday.
All you can ask of them is that they beat the teams on their schedule. However, the road ahead for Chicago is about to get bumpier, and it begins on Thursday night when the Bulls visit the New York Knicks at the United Center. The Bulls have the following games after their battle with the Knicks:
vs. Utah Jazz vs. Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets vs. Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers vs. Denver Nuggets vs. Indiana Pacers
Even though the Bulls won’t have faced the Miami Heat for the first game until this period is through, we should… Nokia News – Quick Recap
