Congratulations Chicago Bulls fans! The heartbreak of the Derrick Rose injury and the long, slow, organizational meltdown that followed it are behind you. Your team is the champion of the NBA (Las Vegas Summer League), thanks to the late heroics of Denzel Valentine.

The rookie hit a late jumper to send the game to overtime, then followed it up with an even more ambitious game-winning turnaround shot to deliver the Bulls their hardware. The last team to win in Las Vegas was the Spurs, so the Bulls are probably headed to greatness in 2016-2017.
