Q: How does it feel being one of the fans’ favourite players in Boston, and did you expect to play such a role? And the second one is are there any personal teasing with other German NBA players because you are the only one playing on a team at the top of the league? Daniel Theis: First off, I would say the Boston fans are special anyway, so every game is sold out. Every play I get, it’s loud from the fans for me. I mean, I should say some fans. It’s an honour for me, for sure. I just try to play like I’ve played the last years, bring energy. And the second one, for the other German players, now in Chicago they’ve made a run. They’re getting better. They have played the last year on the highest level. [Chicago’s Paul Zipser] played a lot of games. So I hope all the other German players and teams they play for, they’re going to get better this season.
During one training-camp media gathering in October, Bulls general manager Gar Forman strolled through the scrum and asked why there weren’t more preseason stories on forward Paul Zipser. Whether it was out of curiosity or an instance of Forman tooting his own horn for grabbing a then-potential starter in the second round (48th overall) of the 2016 draft was unclear, but bet on the latter. It’s safe to say that Forman isn’t looking to push Zipser stories these days. “Paul is staying positive,’’ coach Fred Hoiberg said Sunday. “I had a good talk with him [Saturday]. He’s still going to get his opportunities.’’
