Chicago Bulls’ fans are getting anxious wondering how good the team will be without an injured Derrick Rose for at least the first few months of the season. After having the best record in the NBA for the second consecutive season, the Bulls went into the playoffs with championship intentions. The injury to Rose changed the team’s fortunes.
In the early stages of the offseason, many believed that the talent was not there for the Bulls to make another run at the NBA title. A trade or a splash in free agency would have to be made in order for them to compete with the likes of the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics.
This offseason fans have witnessed the retooling of the bench, and they have raised concerns about Luol Deng’s wrist injury. As of now, the Bulls are not the favorites to win the NBA Central.
With the uncertainty surrounding the team, Bulls fans are daydreaming—daydreaming about what player can place them back into the NBA championship picture and a healthy Deng and Rose.
One of the players that can place the Bulls back into contention is the Oklahoma City Thunder's James Harden. He is one of six players that Bulls fans would love to see playing alongside Rose once he returns.
