When it comes to Chicago Bulls forward Denzel Valentine, there is a clear difference in his play from his 2016-17 rookie campaign to his 2017-18 sophomore season. According to a recent article published by Sam Smith on NBA.com, Valentine opened up about his transition from last season and his ability to play to his strengths. “I was programmed from last year to just catch and shoot a three,” Valentine said. “Get yourself going from three and that’s how you are going to be inserted into the game. But that’s not my game at all. That’s just a piece of my game.” Denzel Valentine also knows that in order to succeed in the NBA, he has to be able to adjust on the fly and be patient along the way.
