Rajon Rondo is not feeling the experts and pundits, who believe that even with the acquisition of he and Dwyane Wade forming a big three with Jimmy Butler — the Bulls are a bottom feeder.
With “the 3 Alphas” on the roster — Rondo believes the Bulls are headed back to the playoffs and had to laugh at predictions that the Bulls would finish in the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
Rondo saw predictions of Bulls being in bottom 4 in East. "Had to laugh at that. Looking forward to being in the top 4. That's the goal."

“We’re gonna surprise people,” Rondo added.
It’s hard to predict where Chicago will finish — with them losing the majority of their core – including Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Paul Gasol – over the summer.
New additions include Rondo, Wade, Robin Lopez — to go with young players such as Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic.
