Chicago Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau's Smartest Moves of the Season

If you follow the NBA, you already consider Chicago Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau one of the best at his craft. He took a team, which won 41 games in consecutive seasons, and led them to the Association's best record the two years after. He is the fastest NBA coach to reach 100 victories.

His calling card is developing different ways to stop teams using defense. Few coaches are as adept as he is when creating a defense to give opposing teams fits.

Like most of his ilk, he has flaws.

Creating offensive schemes is not his strong suit. Partly to blame is that he has always coached Bulls teams filled with one-way players. For the first two seasons, Thibodeau had players who were defense-oriented. This pattern has reversed this year, but the results are paltry.

Derrick Rose has missed the entire season at this point, and the Bulls offense has become stagnant. Thibodeau went creative on both side of the ball to compensate for loss.
