Chicago Bulls media day highlights

With former MVP Derrick Rose set to miss at least half the season as he rehabs his ACL, the Chicago Bulls will have a completely different look this season. Kirk Hinrich takes over at starting point guard, and the bench has been completely reshuffled, giving the Bulls basically a whole new team.

Which makes this media day and start of training camp basically a very new beginning. A season that will look quite different from the past couple years.

Here are some of the highlights of what was said at media day

Post-NBA life has been less-than-kind to Woolridge who was released on bond after his arrest for stealing aluminum tubing at a drill site in Louisiana.
