The man can shoot and he has speed and serious enthusiasm and energy.
But he also can block and steal like a player that is six inches taller than he is.
Caruso might not be the biggest, most intimidating guy on the floor but he’s a prime example of it really not being about the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog.

Caruso is getting ready for a banner new season and was showing his skills in a preseason match the other night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
He was quick and dangerous, stealing the ball from the Bucks before a smooth assist that got the crowd cheering.
This has been how Caruso has operated for years and it’s what has earned him such a loyal following of fans.
The Carushow Returns
Perhaps one of Caruso’s biggest weapons is that he looks so unassuming and welcoming.
Yet, his basketball talents run deep.
He was creating serious noise during his first few seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers but is building something special in Chicago too.
Last season, Caruso averaged 7.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 4 assists.
He was also securing 1.7 steals a game, which is a career-high for him.
Caruso suffered an injury last season and only played in 41 games.
Imagine what he can do if he’s fully healthy all year long in 2022-23.
The Bulls were having a terrific season last year but things fell apart towards the end of the year as injuries stacked up.
In the new year, Caruso might be one of the most important players on the Bulls’ roster.
