The Chicago Bulls start a season 3-0 for the first time since 1996-97

Now we're not saying anything, but the Chicago Bulls are going to win the NBA title in 2017 (of course they aren't, but we can allow the fans to get a little excited after their turbulent summer).

Nobody really knew what to expect of the Bulls following the addition of Rajon and Dwyane Wade but the early signs have been very positive.

The much-publicised spacing issues we kept hearing about have not come to fruition and the Bulls have surprised many as they currently lead the league in team scoring.

Three games is not enough to draw conclusions about an 82 game marathon, but their hat-trick of wins have certainly raised expectations in Illinois.

Considering the Bulls led the NBA for regular season wins in 2010-11 and again in 2011-12 - tying with the San Antonio Spurs - it's incredible to think this is the first time they have been 100 percent after three games since 1996-97 when Michael Jordan was at the height of his powers. And we all know what happened that season.

The current Bulls will face a lot tougher challenges than their opening trio of encounters - their next match-up against the Celtics at TD Garden certainly falls into that category - and they will give us a better understanding of where Chi-Town is at right now.

Wade, Rondo and Jimmy Butler have hit the ground running this season with some fantastic support from role players. Regardless of what happens in the coming weeks, it will certainly be an exciting season for the fans.
