Chicago Bulls: Handicapping Players' Odds of Making 2013 NBA All-Star Game
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA All-Star Game is just a few months away, and fans all around the world are anticipating the revealing of the lineups to see if their favorite players made the team.

As for the Chicago Bulls, they have five players on the ballot this year: Kirk Hinrich, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah. The biggest surprise is Gibson; he's a great defender and rebounder, but his offense leaves more to be desired.

Still, the chances of a Bulls player making it on the team seem pretty favorable as they hold a good portion of the candidates.

Last season, the Bulls had two All-Stars (Luol Deng and Derrick Rose) for the first time since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were both on the team in 1997. They'll look to continue that trend as the end of voting draws near.

I'll be looking at each Bulls player on the ballot and predicting what their chances of making the team are.

Odds will be based on the spots available for each position as well as players that are a threat to take a spot. I will assume seven spots for the frontcourt and five for the backcourt.
