According to Hoopshype, Marco has blamed his poor performance through the preseason on learning a new system, also noting that he's never played with a top-level team.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he play with DWest and CP3? How "top-level" is Chicago without D-Rose?
Presto, Marco, non ci saranno piu' scuse per la tua capacita' scarsa!

I couldn't care less about Marco Belinelli.
Hey Marco, if we weren't top level part of it's because of all the bricks you laid while wearing a Hornet uni.
There have been times through the first three preseason games that the moment has appeared to be too big for Marco Belinelli.
On Monday, the Bulls shooting guard admitted that so far it has been.
“I don’t want to use this as an excuse, but for me it’s a new system, and for me this is really the first time I’ve played with a top-level team,’’ Belinelli confessed.
Obviously, life with playoff-challenged teams such as Golden State, Toronto and New Orleans over the last five seasons hasn’t prepared the 6-5 scorer for the Bulls, or more specifically, life with coach Tom Thibodeau. But Belinelli might want to get over those feelings of being overwhelmed real soon, like starting tonight when the team hosts the Milwaukee Bucks at the United Center.
There are big plans for this team, as far as Thibodeau is *concerned, and it’s either all-in or in the way.
“The big thing is the attitude and approach, concentrate on the improvement,’’ Thibodeau said. “Knowing what your job is is very important, and then going out and doing your job, those are two big pieces you’ve got to get right. We’re getting there in that area. And the big thing is knowing when to shoot, knowing when to pass, knowing our schemes defensively, and staying disciplined. We’ve hit a few snags.’’
David West did something similar when he left and then went a step further and said he never played with a center as good as Roy Hibbert.

Marco cuffs his skinny jeans......whatever he says is irrelavant...
Damn, y'all are some vindictive people. The Hornets were not a top 4 seed in their conference when Marco was on the team. A 6-8th seed is not a top team. Even injured as they are, the Bulls should be right around the three or four seed in the East.

Worst shooter whose specialty is shooting in history of nba. We weren't elite-fact. You made us farther from elite -fact.
His 3pt% was pretty good for us... :shrug:

Lol I can't wait to see Chicago facepalm when they realize that Marco is no Kyle Korver.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
Aww I forgot Marco was even on the team last year. He has confidence issues and I think he's a more overall scorer than he is a shooter.
"I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery
That was a completely valid statement to honest, I don't really see that as him throwing us under the bus
Not a top level team but ironically it's the only one he's been to the playoffs with.
Anyways, good luck Marco. Except when you play the Hornets, or........
The Bulls are gonna love his defense. Good riddance to him.

Wonder if Chicago has ordered the Italian flags to fly when he makes a 3.

Honestly, who cares? He's a depth/bench player, nothing more. He's delusional if he thinks otherwise.

I hated marco on this team;.. just hated how bad he was, watching hornets games was painful seeing how many bricks he put up.. when he was always wide open. And he never had a passion for the game.. hated him
