Grading the Bulls' Starting 5 Heading into the Stretch Run of the Season

For the Chicago Bulls this season, it doesn't matter who is out of the lineup or who they are playing because all they do is win.

Currently they have the best record in the league at 38-10 and were the last team to lose their 10th game.

They also have the best point differential at an even 9.0 while also having the best road record. Their four home losses actually is just one less than they had all of last season but is still good enough for third best this season.

In my past grading pieces this season, I have focused on all the key players, but this time around I am just looking at the starters.

Unfortunately for coach Tom Thibodeau, he has started nearly everyone on the team once this season. Actually, only four of the 14 players have not started this season. Those four are Taj Gibson, Brian Scalabrine, Mike James and rookie Jimmy Butler.

If Thibodeau doesn't win his second straight coach of the year, it will be a shocker with all he has dealt with this season.

So let's see who is performing up to expectations and who needs to pick up their game as the Bulls head down the stretch.

If you are interested to see how I have been grading throughout the year, here are my grades for the first third of the season and the first half.
