The Chicago Bulls are off to an unimpressive start to the 2012-13 season, and it's largely a result of a handful of players whose performance thus far has been disappointing.
The Bulls are currently 6-7 and some may argue that this is right around where they should be while Derrick Rose remains sidelined. However, they went 18-9 during the regular season last year without Rose, and the Bulls should thus have higher expectations than merely hovering around .500.
The frustration of the Bulls' season was summarized on Monday night, when they blew a 27-point lead and lost to the Milwaukee Bucks. There are clearly some players on this roster who are underperforming and need to step their games up if Chicago expects to remain competitive in the Eastern Conference.
Here we will examine the Bulls' most disappointing players thus far, while also analyzing how they can turn things around in a hurry.
