The Bulls had a good season last year, by most accounts. The team produced two All-Stars in Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler, earned the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference and progressed to the semi finals of the playoffs.
But the team’s major mission remains unaccomplished as the Bulls have yet to win a championship in the Derrick Rose-era.
With a new coach, new system and a young rookie looking to earn a role on the team, Chicago has a new outlook on its title aspirations. A new work environment combined with past anguish from losing to LeBron James may be just what the Bulls need to push past the Cavaliers in the playoffs.
