The Chicago Bulls will reach the playoffs this year unless a colossal meltdown takes place.
While there are probably a couple of teams the Bulls wouldn’t want to play in the first round, there has to be a few that they wouldn’t mind facing.
Chicago has played respectable basketball without superstar Derrick Rose, who hasn’t logged a single minute this season due to an ACL injury.
The team currently owns the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference, thanks in large part to gritty defense and contributions from All-Stars Joakim Noah and Luol Deng.
So just who would the Bulls prefer to meet in the opening round? This list will rank the most desirable opponent to the least.
