Comparing Chicago Bulls' Current Bench Mob with Last Season's Version
Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

One of the Chicago Bulls' strong points last season was the bench mob. They had a collection of great shooters, lockdown defenders and big men that could fill in perfectly while the starters took a short rest. The 2012 season brought an entire new cast, however, and many wondered if they could match the production of the former unit.

The 2012 bench's major contributors averaged 43 points per game while this year's (including Kirk Hinrich) averages only 40.3. There were also better defenders in last year's unit, most notably Omer Asik, whose presence is missed in Chicago's thin frontcourt.

While this year's bench mob may not be scoring as many points as the previous one, there have still been some big improvements in overall personnel, as the Bulls now have more complete players on their second unit than they did a year ago.

Note: All stats are as of Jan. 15, 2013.
