To many people around the NBA, Dwyane Wade's move to his hometown franchise of Chicago is still an uncomfortable, unbelievable thought.
The legendary shooting guard was the pillar of the Heat. He was the spine of the three championships they have ever won and was almost a lock to see out his entire career with the franchise in the same way Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan just managed.
Now that the 34-year-old is in the Windy City, his new coach Fred Hoiberg is very excited about having so many playmakers at his disposal with Jimmy Butler and fellow new recruit, Rajon Rondo, also operating in the backcourt.

"I'm really excited to get him on board," Hoiberg said via phone from Las Vegas, where the Bulls are playing in the NBA Summer League. "Obviously, he's a guy with championship experience and gives us another playmaker on the floor. I've been watching a lot of film to see how to best utilise the talents of the players on our roster.
"Dwyane is a tough matchup for opposing teams with him and Jimmy (Butler) on the wings and Rajon (Rondo) at the point. A lot of how we attack will be based on matchups and who the defender is and whose hands we're going to put the ball in to make plays."
Hoiberg doesn't appear worried that there might be too many chefs in the kitchen in Chicago; he sees the glass as half full.
With so much talent on his roster than can do so many different things, the second-year Bulls coach knows the onus is on him to find a way to bring out the best in his players.
"We have multiple playmakers now, multiple guys who can get in the paint. We do have floor spacing on this team. It will be important to have guys who can knock down shots."
Can Chicago make a return to the playoffs this year?
