D-Wade says the 'Three Alphas' intend on developing a three-point shot

Published Add your comment

A lot has been said about the overhaul that has gone on in Chicago this summer and whether their acquisitions have been sensible, or more about name value.

Of course, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo are good players on their own merit, but with Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah leaving, the Bulls had to react.

They targeted a couple of big, veteran names in free agency and came away with Wade and Rondo, two former NBA champions who are experience Eastern Conference competitors.

However, Jimmy Butler is the leader of the franchise, and he has been ousted from his shooting guard slot.

Butler has been operating at the three-spot since the duos arrival, but Chicago have opened up preseason with two losses on the bounce, for what that is worth.

Bulls beat reporter Cody Westerlund tweeted out that D-Wade, Butler and Rondo all plan to improve their three-point areas. His tweet said: Dwyane Wade says he, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo have been encouraging each other to shoot 3s and feel comfortable doing so.

That's another problem in Chicago. The floor is always stretched in today's game, but all three of these men are better drivers with the rock and then jump shooters. They are certainly not three-point chatch-and-shoot men.
