Many Chicago Bulls fans watched last season go up in smoke. After the injury to Derrick Rose in the previous season’s playoffs, many fans had mixed emotions on his return. It was an issue that divided the city much like that over which baseball team is better(Cubs or White Sox). The team had an up and down season going into the playoffs which saw the team win a hard fought first round series against the Brooklyn Nets, to the loss against the Miami Heat in the Eastern conference semi finals.
