    Did the lightbulb finally come on for Denzel? Discuss.

    The lightbulb has pretty much been on since he got in the league. When he's healthy, he contributes. The rest is team chemistry, and some players need chemistry to take it up another few notches.

    He's a better rebounder than I thought he was, but skills wise he's about what I expected coming out of college. Heady player, moves the ball well, can shoot the 3 at a good rate. Would like to see his overall FG% go up, but he takes so many 3s that it might not happen.
    Bulls season be like

    Hopefully, it's a sign that the young & athletic movement is starting to develop!

    Damn Raskolnikov, Did you have to neg me and go on and on about Valentine not being athletic? WTF? Are you saying that the Bulls are not younger and more athletic? Just where the fuck did I say that Valentine was the most athletic player on the roster? WTF dude, maybe you better lay off the weed.

    He seems more comfortable exhibiting his athleticism this year. What I mean is, he's looking to create his shot more often (and doing a capable job of it), he's penetrating and kicking better than last year, he just looks like an actual NBA basketball player so far through 34 games. Last year, he seemed pretty robotic, and if he put the ball on the floor, bad things tended to happen. He's cut what feels like 25% of that "Bad feeling" when he tries to create out of his game. While the light hasn't come on completely, in my mind, you're definitely seeing tangible development from a guy who *could* be a bench piece when this team is ready to try and win 55 games in a couple years.

    Agreed, I think he could develop into a heady role player for the Bulls moving forward. I can't wait to see how Zack fits in the current roster. I like what the Bulls are doing!
