Wade, who is averaging 11.3 points per game with the Cavaliers after receiving a buyout from the Bulls before the season, took to social media to praise the team’s young core, and head coach Fred Hoiberg:
“As a fan of the game and as someone who played with some of the young guys last season, it’s cool to see the Young Bulls grow as the season goes on,” Wade tweeted. “Fred and his staff has done a great job!”
Unfortunately for the Bulls, that strong play of late hasn’t translated into much of a boost in the standings, as they remain six and a half games behind the Indiana Pacers for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
They also remain three and a half games ahead of the Atlanta Hawks in the race for the league’s worst record.
