Chicago Bulls’ star, DeMar DeRozan, is optimistic about the team’s potential for the upcoming season.

Despite high hopes, the Bulls failed to make the playoffs last season. The team missed Lonzo Ball the entire season and is set to miss him this whole year again.

In spite of this, DeRozan is confident that Chicago has what it takes to be very successful.

“I think we can accomplish it all,” DeRozan told Mark Medina of SportsKeeda. “From a lot of mistakes we had and ups and downs last season, it’s about understanding that and knowing how to correct that. That will make us even better than we were last season.

“We were pretty good, but we were too inconsistent. I think addressing a lot of the flaws that we had last season come next week in training camp will be the start of that. How much we correct that will determine how good we can be. I definitely think we can be extremely good.”

Last season, DeRozan played a pivotal role in the team’s performance, averaging 24.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 36.2 minutes per game.
