With Derrick Rose sidelined, the Chicago Bulls' offensive and defensive strategy needs to be defined, or perhaps "redefined" is the better word. Their schemes will look much different while their superstar is recovering from his torn ACL.

However, while their schemes will look different, their identity will remain the same. This is entirely because of coach Tom Thibodeau.

Thibodeau has been at the foundation of the Bulls' success the past two seasons. He preaches defense, and he's always in search of ways to make the Bulls a better all-around squad.

This task is much more difficult without Rose, and so Thibodeau figures to adjust their strategies accordingly.

Here we break down Chicago's offensive and defensive strategy for 2012-13. If the Bulls solidify these approaches, there's every reason to believe they can remain a high-quality team even without D-Rose.
