The Chicago Bulls have simply been a power house just stampeding through the league earning themselves the most wins in the NBA and they did so without the presence of last year???s league MVP, Derrick Rose.  Most teams would struggle or at least show some marked change without their star player, but not the Bulls.  Chicago has remained consistent and resilient despite missing their team???s leader for much of the season as they went 15-5 without Rose on the roster and they do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.  One can just imagine that with the Bulls doing so well without Rose on the court, how good the Bulls would have been if Rose was healthy enough to play.

Despite not having Rose for five straight games, the Bulls still managed to win three of those five games and finish 11-3 for the month of February.  The following month, Rose would miss a season record nine straight games to a persisting lower back injury; however, the Bulls still perservered winning seven of those nine games losing just to The Orlando Magic by just five points (3/8) and the Portland Trailblazers (3/16) by eleven.  At a glance, it may not seem that the Bulls need Derrick Rose as they have been doing quite fine without him; however, that is far from the truth.  Chicago has been holding out well in the Regular Season without Rose, but there is no way that they can survive the Post Season without him.  Rose makes things so much easier for the Bulls as he not only creates for himself than to his speed and quickness, but he also creates for others through penetrating and drawing double teams.         (Click here to finish reading this post and so much more on JT's Hoops Blog)
