Coby White has been one of (if not the) most improved player in the NBA during the 2023-2024 season.

The former UNC basketball star has played at an All-Star level all season long, as he's now made some franchise single-season history in the process.

On Tuesday night, White became the Chicago Bulls' single-season three-point shooting king. The former Tar Heel now has 205 three pointers made this season, passing current teammate Zach LaVine's record of 204 set back during the 2022-2023 season.

White and LaVine are the only Bulls to record 200+ made three-pointers in a single-season. The former Tar Heel will have a chance to add to his record over the Bulls' final stretch of the regular season.

What a season it has been for Coby White, as he's averaging a career-high 19.0 points per-game. He has essentially improved in every aspect of his game, as his rebounding and assists numbers have taken a significant jump from a season ago.

White has truly embraced his role as a full-time starter, as the extension he signed this past summer is one that looks like an absolute steal for the Bulls organization. The scary thing is: White is still only 24-years-old, as it looks as if he has a lot of good basketball ahead at this point in his young promising career.

The season didn't go as planned for the Bulls organization, but White has surely been a positive for the franchise. It's very likely that he'll be one of the players that the franchise attempts to build around this offseason and beyond.
