On the year, Wade is averaging 18.6 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 3.9 APG.
There’s one apt adjective to describe the Chicago Bulls’ season thus far: tumultuous.
The Jimmy Butler trade rumors have been persistent all throughout the season. There’s still a question as to whether he’ll be back next season. Head coach Fred Hoiberg has garnered considerable heat from the local media. Rajon Rondo also caused a distraction with a viral Instagram post questioning members of the team.
These have been contributing factors to the Bulls’ current 32-36 standing. Chicago would be entirely out of the playoffs if they started today.
