Taj Gibson says his role will increase, and the Bulls will still compete (http://espn.go.com/chicago/nba/story/_/id/8335151/chicago-bulls-guard-taj-gibson-expects-step-game-derrick-rose-sidelined). I like his confidence, but I don't know if he understands how much his team depends on Derrick Rose. In his last healthy, full season - 2010-11 - he scored 25 percent of the Bulls' points, completed 34 percent of their assists, grabbed 9 percent of their rebounds and took 14 percent of their steals.
Where do you think the Bulls finish without Derrick Rose?
For me, the loss of Rose made the Central Division the weakest in the NBA, despite my thinking that Indiana is still a top-4 team in the east. The Bulls will still make the playoffs, in my opinion, but they'll be in the bottom half, and they're offense will be seriously laconic without Rose directing it. You can't deny that they have, perennially, one if the best front courts in the league.

If by "compete" he means they can lose by less than 20 points a night, then yes.

I put them at a little above .500 without Rose all season. 42-48 wins, so a 6-8 seed. Thibs is too good of a coach not to lead this team into the playoffs in the East. This is assuming that Noah, Boozer, Deng, etc. all stay healthy themselves.

How many timez must we prove to you people that we're an elite "TEAM" in the NBA period. 2 yrs ago we were the number 1 seed with Noah, and Boozer missing about 50% of the season. Last yr we were the # 1 seed with Rose missing half of the season and Deng banged up.

Miami... you got your rings by default because Rose got hurt... just admit it. This team we have now actually has the potential to be better than those teams with a healthy D. Rose. Say what you want,... the defense is still gonna be HELL, and the offense has just increased!

K. Hinrich, M. Bellini, N. Robinson, and our rookie J. Butler trumps

CJ Watson, Brewer, and K. Korver. FACT.... so keep sleeping. Our biggest loss was ASIK... hopefully we get another big.

I say we finish 5th in the East. See you in the playoffs....

they should tank this season and grab a high draft pick to become Rose's sidekick

like what Westbrook is to Durant

this is not a hit to Chicago. Its just if they tank this season and when Rose comes back and eases him back to the game slowly, next season they will absolutely dominate with the return of a 100% healthy Rose and high draft pick coming in

amnesty Boozer, team option Hamilton and offer a max contract to Harden

The bulls will be better than most people think and without rose still should be a decent regular season team. We have to see how the new players gel and compare to last years team (they could actually be better in the playoffs). But, the bulls will need rose in the post season for sure.

As for taj, he's saying what all players will say. Nothing surprising there. There isn't anything untrue in what he said anyway. They will be competitive even without rose.

Nobody goes into a season with the plan to tank. They may go into the season with ****** rosters, like ORL and CHA, but nobody wants or plans to lose. I hate when people say they should tank, because it would never happen with any organization. If it did, many people would lose their jobs which is why teams don't just go into the season with the mindset of "tanking."

Sir... I hate to tell you.... but your friend Le'BRICK James can't do half of the stuff D. Rose does with the basketball. Rose is the best "FINISHER" in the NBA. He has layups more spectacular than your fAVORITE L. James dunk.
PERIOD. and all FACT.

Lebron James shoots 15 freethrows a a game to avg 26ppg! If D. Rose shot 15 freethrows a game he would avg 30ppg. What kills me is Lebron gets bailed out with freethrows all day and he's 260 pounds, but Rose has to play like Emmit Smith through NO CALLS.

If u were so elite why did u lose in 5 games in the ECF to Miami in our first season together.

Yet U think a banged up recovering from traumatic injury D rose on a slightly worse bulls team can compete with the upgrades other real contenders have made? Get out of here.

You will make the playoffs but once he comes back u still have slim chance against Miami and boston. You might be on Indiana's level with him in the playoffs though.

buddy ball is the best way to play. prolongs your team's ability to win. Look at Rose, in an instance he becomes injured from the way he plays and Chicago is ****ed..

Rose is not the best player in the NBA. He's the best finisher but not the best player overall. Lebron can guard up to 4 positions, put up big stats, and win. He took his team (Cleveland) to the NBA Finals by himself with a bunch of role players. Rose has yet to do that on probably a better Chicago team with Deng and Noah.

really? cuz getting 15 free throws is hard in itself.

Don't get me wrong, Rose is a top 5 talent but Lebron is undoubtedly the best player and has been for a few years now. If you keep saying Rose is better than Lebron right now, you have to take your homer glasses off.

Nate Robinson is a chucker that why he gets more points he is also a much much worse defender and a huge liability on defense. Belineli is a worse shooter than korver so what if he can get his own shot he's easily defendable with korver it doesn't matter if he was stand still he could drain them from anywhere and with hands in his face belinelli won't. Hinrich only scored more points cause he was on worse teams he will not be scoring so much on a solid bulls team.

And Omar asik was your best post defender. Thibs would use him over Noah when he needed lock down d. His points are irrelevant compared to his defensive impact. And LMAO at Nazi Mohammad replacing him that guy is a scrub so what if he is close to 7 ft he's a sub par defender and 0 offensive game.

Reading King's Rose/Bulls posts are like reading BKLYNKNICKS talk about Melo and the Knicks... It's fun to engage the trolls for awhile then it becomes tiresome. We all remember the literary classic If You Give a Moose a Muffin and the lessons are applicable here haha

The Bulls can certainly compete in the regular season. They have a great coach, play great team defense, and have enough balance in the lineup that they can get a mid to low seed going into the playoffs. Unfortunately, unless Rose is 100% (very, very, very unlikely) come playoff time they will not be a factor next season. It takes at least two stars to win a championship, and the way I see it the Bulls have none until Rose is healthy again.

However dont expect them to be a top seed again, likely in the 4-6 range.

Miami is lucky D.Howard was injuried because if not they would have faced okc in the finals

If by "compete" he means they can lose by less than 20 points a night, then yes.

If the Bulls lose by 20 then the Heat will lose by 40

Lol sure. And I didn't say they were gonna lose by 20. I said they will "compete" by losing by less than 20.

Our team dosn't fear "the little 3".... you aint real champs until you come through Chicago. See you in the playoffs.

lol.. Rose gonna be even more dangerous. Yall makin a MONSTER. Rose was already the most talented player in the league "WITHOUT WEIGHT TRAINING"..... now he's gonna just be an absolute nightmare to guard.

:facepalm:

This tool does not represent Bulls fans as a whole...

WAMP WAMP WAMp. the fact is...... we just added a potential 25- 30 more points to our offense, with the same solid defense. It's gonna be much harder than you think. See you in the playoffs.

This would be so genius if he was trolling... but he isn't.

Bulls should absolutely tank this year. It's almost like a blessing in disguise because there really isn't any other way to get a legit 2nd guy to complement Rose.

Doesn't Chi have the Bobcats pick too? Even if they don't want a rookie - they could always package the picks for a serious talent infusion.

Yes; I'm sure Rose hadn't been lifting weights like most other NBA players, just like I'm sure Dwayne Wade or LeBron James would never be able to guard him.

Lebron could. Wade never could.

They pride themselves on being regular season champs, so they'll never do that.

^^^ I'm glad the "BUDDY BALL" system got their 1 ring in MR. Rose's absence. Thats the ONLY way it was goin down.

Rose is the best player in the NBA....Anybody can make 15 freethrows Lebron.

He did it for the llullz.

Bulls fans, you don't need to worry about what other fanbases are going to feel about you because the rational and objective posters here are going to know better about grouping an entire fanbase together based on 1 poster.

KINGBAIZE, I commend you for being a radical fan because I know I am in regards to the Heat. Even so, I know how to temper it so I can be objective when it comes to player analysis and the sport as a whole. You need to seriously temper your fandom here. Bottom line is that we'll never know how the playoffs would've gone had Rose not gotten injured. No doubt it changed the landscape of the playoffs simply because he's the superstar on a title contending team. But to try and downplay Miami's championship because of it is very short sighted of you, especially when you're coming off a year where you lost to Miami 4-1 in the ECF. You don't really have a leg to stand on here dude no matter how you slice it.

On topic, Taj Gibson is absolutely right here. They performed well without him in the regular season, so there's not much a reason to believe that they won't this year. Granted the bench isn't quite as good as last year based on the chemistry that was shown, but it isn't anywhere near as bad as some seem to believe. Plus, Thibs is their coach and they have an outstanding defense.
