Is Skiles giving the rest of the NBA another 9 game head start on the season?

As a non-Bulls fan that had high expectations for this team, what is going on? Is Skiles still experimenting with lineups? Is the defense not there? How is the effort?

We miss both of our centers. Not so much Eddy but AD. We replaced Eddy with Sweetney and got added rebounding in return, but we miss AD and the D he gave us at the center spot.

Tyson struggled to play center full time.

But we are 4-5 compared to 0-9 last season.

IMO we lost to GS and Seattle. The other games we could have won! All of them.

Also early on, our team defense is down from last season. We gave up just 93 pts all last season. This year its 98.

A third thing is we need to lift our shooting %, especially deng and Gordon. It's a lot easier to play defense after you've made a shot and get to set up your half court D.

Our turn overs and rebounding is on par with the opposition, our shooting % sucks majorly though.
