“People say I’m a three-point shooter. I think I bring more to the table than that,” Chicago Bulls shooting guard Kyle Korver told us last month at the Converse Open Gym event at the Great Lakes Naval Base.
We’d say Kyle brought the goods and set the table last night in his Bulls debut and NBA preseason opener, dropping 22 points on 7-of-12 from the field.
“I like to be involved in the play,” Kyle says. “Knowing that my guy didn’t sag off me, so that Derrick Rose was able to get to the basket, I take pride in that.”
After last night’s performance, don’t expecting opposing teams to be sagging off Kyle anytime soon.
As promised last month, we’ve got exclusive video with Kyle from the Open Gym event. Peep the vid above to hear Kyle dish on learning the fundamentals of the game and what it means to be a role player. He also offers a taste of what else he’ll bring to the table for the Bulls this season.
