Dwyane Wade: Bulls’ goal of winning title is ‘unrealistic’

Dwyane Wade is keeping it real with Chicago Bulls fans.

Even though the Bulls made splash signings in free agency with himself and Rajon Rondo, that doesn’t mean a championship is coming to Chicago in June. Wade told reporters on Tuesday (via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune) that the Bulls’ goal of winning a title is unrealistic. Instead, the Bulls’ focus has to be improving day-to-day to a point where they’re a playoff team again.

After five straight playoff appearances under Tom Thibodeau, the Bulls missed the playoffs in Fred Hoiberg’s first year as coach. Chicago went 42-40 and finished in ninth place in the East last season.

Wade, the Miami Heat’s all-time scoring leader, signed a two-year deal with the Bulls after 13 seasons with the Heat. He knows a thing or two about winning championships after winning three with the Heat. If he says it’s unrealistic for the Bulls to win a title next season then it is.
