8 Reasons Chicago Bulls Can Win Central Division

The Bulls won't be looking up at anybody in the Central Division at the end of the season.

Let the haters hate. Even though the Bulls will play most of the season without former MVP Derrick Rose, Chicago has enough talent and depth on its roster to win the NBA Central Division in 2012-13.

The Bulls did just fine without Rose last season, going 18-9 in games that he missed. Sure, things came apart without the team's superstar in the postseason. But winning in the regular season and winning in the playoffs are much different.

To win the division in the NBA, a team has to have above-average overall depth (check). It has to play terrific team defense every night (check). And it has to have enough talent on the roster to roll through the less-superior teams (check).

The Bulls certainly pass that test. There is no reason to believe that Chicago can't win the Central for the third straight year, especially if the team gets Rose back for a month at the end of the season.

Here are eight reasons why the Bulls can win the division in the 2012-13 NBA season.
