    Bulls’ Justin Holiday, left, goes to the basket against Charlotte Hornets’ Nicolas Batum during Nov. 17’s loss. Yes, Holiday seems to shoot a lot but look at it this way, the Bulls took a career role player and tossed him into a situation where he’s expected to be a veteran leader and go-to scorer. Naturally, Holiday is still figuring things out when it comes to shot selection and he may not have it in him to be a consistent 16- to 18-point scorer in the NBA. If the Bulls can add some talent in the next couple years, Holiday could learn from this experience, slide back into a supporting role, and be a valuable piece if the rebuild starts climbing the stairs.

    Time to give thanks for the Bulls rebuild? Not quite, but here’s a mailbag

    Maybe this isn’t the time to give thanks to the Bulls. But since the team has a rest day on the road, this is a good time for another Twitter malbag with Bulls and NBA questions from readers.
