I live in the Washington, DC area and as a fan of both the Bulls and Geogretown Hoyas, I can't help but see a couple similarities in philosphy.
I'm encouraged by what I see from both teams, not only for the long term, but also short term future. Let me explain....
- Motion Offenses-- I know Chicago doesn't run the Princeton offense like G'Town, but everyone in the league knows we run the best sets out there. In both offenses, u'll see excellent ball movement and patience that eventually ends up in a good shot. When executed right not many teams can defend it.
- Team Makeup-- Another thing that I noticed and am really excited about is the fact that there isn't any true set positions on either team. Meaning, that u don't really have a PG and SG or PF and SF, u just basically have a backcourt and frontcourt. Many times looking at both teams u'll find that out on the court at any given time, there is one big man(in Chicago- Big Ben, at Gtown- Hibbert) and a mix of 4 athletes that can do multiple things. This makes it hard for the oposing team to match up.
- Team Philosphy-- Both teams are built around solid execution on offense and playing bone up man to man D.
