Quick reactions to the Milwaukee Bucks-Chicago Bulls preseason game

Derrick Rose-Brandon Jennings

The biggest stories surrounding the Chicago Bulls this week are 1.) Joakim Noah’s contract extension and 2.) Carlos Boozer’s serious injury. I would like to get your take on the latter because the Milwaukee Bucks are a franchise that leaned on a very injury prone player for so long in Michael Redd. Obviously, that’s not the case anymore, as the Bucks’ are a team with a more balanced scoring and overall production load.

What were your big takeaways from tonight’s preseason game? I know that’s a difficult question to answer since all preseason games are inherently meaningless, but we can start with avoiding injury – obviously, that’s the #1 aim of all these scrimmages. But what else did you notice that meant something out there tonight?
