With the reemergence of our main-man Derrick Rose, medical the Chicago Bulls are once again considered a top threat in the Eastern Conference and NBA Championship title contenders. After getting down and dirty with an 8-0 preseason record, cialis we can tell our Bulls are hungrier than ever.

Over the past three years the Bulls have established themselves as an elite NBA team coached by Tom Thibodeau. After last season, hospital the Bulls have also proven that no matter who is on the court, Thibs will find a way to make them competitors. With Rose’s explosiveness leading the pack, this Bulls team has lofty expectations.

The countdown for the 2013 NBA season is less than 24 hours away and that means it’s time for your Chicago Bulls-Brush-Up. Know who’s rocking the red, black and white jerseys for the Bulls this season.

Starting Lineup:

Derrick Rose #1
Position: Point Guard (PG)
Age: 25
Get up, or get out of the way. Derrick Rose is healthy and ready to get himself that NBA tile he so greatly desires. His athleticism and strength is apparent and his offensive improvements (sassy jump shot) during his recovery have only made him a more powerful force on the court. Expect an improved field goal percentage and less turnovers from DRose this season. Look out King James, DRose is looking to knock you off your MVP throne. 
Joakim Noah #13
Position: Center (C)
Age: 28
Next to Rose, Noah has become a fan favorite here in Chicago. He had a monster 2012-2013 season full of triple doubles, All-Star appearances, and a spot on the All-Defensive First Team roster. Jo-No and his messy-bun-swag give the Bulls an extra level of intensity that will only be heightened with his teammate Rose alongside him. However, the Bulls must be careful with Noah’s lingering plantar fasciitis. He was already shutdown during preseason with a sore groin injury. Restricting his minutes throughout the season will ensure a healthy All-Star center come spring.
Carlos Boozer #5
Position: Power Forward (PF)
Age: 31
There are still plenty of Booze Cruise haters, but Boozer had another solid offensive year for the Bulls last season (his defense could use a makeover). We need to accept that Carlos Boozer is never going to be the aggressive powerhouse Chicago had anticipated, but he can improve the offensive play of the team. Boozer had a solid preseason and benefited from Rose’s playmaking on the court. He is also the most active Bull on Instagram – Booze loves editing those family photos and sharing them socially.
Luol Deng #9
Position: Small Forward
Age: 28
Luol Deng has been one of the most consistent performers on the Bulls roster since being picked up in 2004. He’s made two All-Star appearances and been a silent leader of the team’s defense. Unfortunately, we’re not sure if Deng will be a Bull much longer. Sources state Deng and the Bulls have yet to agree on any sort of contract extension. Come summer, Deng’s asking price will be too high for the Bulls to afford so many are suggesting the Bulls shop around while they can get someone useful for the All-Star.
Jimmy Butler #21
Position: Shooting Guard (SG)
Age: 24
Jimmy Buckets has a bit of a fro going for the start of the 2013 season. Butler emerged at the end of last season, stole the spotlight during the playoffs and earned himself a spot in the starting lineup this year. We got to see a different side of Butler who has always had suffocating defense, but also became a presence on offense. It’s only going to get better with Rose in the lineup to create more open looks for Butler. Expect JimmyB to log quite a few minutes this season.

Bulls Back Court:

Taj Gibson #22
Position: Power Forward (PF)
Age: 28
Did Taj get himself a jump shot over the off season? He apparently spent the summer working out with DRose and Kevin Durant and we are loving the results. Taj has always been a tough defender, but with a solid jump shot, Mr. Gibson could be awfully dangerous. His game looks more powerful and smoother than in past seasons. It is very possible we’re going to see Taj’s best season yet. Early season rumors has him in the running for the Sixth Man of the Year award. 
Kirk Hinrich #12
Position: Shooting Guard
Age: 32
Captain Kirk is back for another year with the Bulls. Last season Hinrich was responsible for running the offense, but with Rose back on the court Kirk takes on a new persona for the Bulls – a tough defender who can shoot the ball. Thibs will have Hinrich come off the bench for most game starts, but we’ll be sure to see some DRose-Hinrich mixes in the lineup.
Nazr Mohammed #48
Position: Center (C)
Age: 36
Nazi isn’t the youngest buck on the Bulls, but he’s got heart. He earned some major street cred with Chicago fans when he pushed Lebron James right on his booty after James had been fouling Boozer. He stepped up during the post season putting up some necessary numbers when other teammates were struggling to produce offense. He’s not an All-Star center, but he gives his all every second he’s on the court. 
Mike Dunleavy #34
Position: Shooting Guard (SG)
Age: 33
Dunleavy joins the Bulls  after a half season with the Indiana Pacers and two years with the Milwaukee Bucks. Dunleavy is entering his 12th season in the league – don’t be fooled by his baby face ladies, this guy is a seasoned vet. The Bulls have added another Duke alum to the lineup and Dunleavy is quite excited to play under the coaching of Tom Thibodeau. 
Marquis Teague #25
Position: Point Guard (PG)
Age: 20 
He may be the youngster on the roster, but Teague has a full year of NBA play under his belt.  It’s going to be a do or die type of season for Teague who needs to prove his worth to this Bulls team with plenty of point guard talent. We could see a big season out of Teague, or we could also see him get traded during the season. 
Mike James #8
Position: Point Guard (PG)
Age: 38
Mike James nabbed the 13th roster spot for the 2013-2014 season. He’s a seasoned vet within the league, has played on multiple teams and was a part of the 2004 Piston’s Championship team. He has always been on Thibodeau’s radar and for that reason we might see more playing time than expected from the third string point guard.  He’s not in the prime of his career, but the Bulls are hoping to get some productivity out of James. If Rose or Hinrich were to face injuries, Chicago would need to lean on James to lead the way.

Bulls Rookies 

Tony Snell #20
Position: Small Forward (SF)
Age: 21
Snell may not be the sexiest guy on the bench, but he fits coach Thibodeau’s mold. He can play tough D and isn’t afraid to pull up and take his jump shot (he was a little inconsistent during the preseason, but he’ll gain confidence with time). To most of us Snell was a big mystery draft pick as we don’t see much of the west coast NCAA play here in the midwest. Expect to see pretty good things out of this 21-year-old rookie.
Erik Murphy #31
Position: Power Forward (PF)
Age: 23
Big-man-rookie Erik Murphy won’t see too much playing time this season, but that doesn’t mean Thibs won’t utilize his three-point shooting ability in clutch situations. Murphy will also come in handy if Boozer, Taj, Noah or Nazi get into foul trouble and Chicago needs a larger presence on the floor. 

Bulls Head Coach

From NBA.com

Tom Thibodeau
Coach Thibodeau proved himself yet again last season advancing in the playoffs even without a healthy roster. Thibs instills a defensive mentality in his players that challenges even the most talented of opponents. If Thibs reputation holds true, he could see himself with another Coach of the Year award under his belt. Pair the wisdom he’s gained during his time in the league with his best roster yet and we’re in for a treat. 

What’s Next:

Bring us an NBA Championship DRose and company! It’s going to take a healthy roster, but the Bulls have the talent and depth to defeat their most rivaled opponents and finally get themselves to a NBA finals.
