What the Chicago Bulls Can Look Forward to Next Year

It's been almost a year since Bulls fans saw their franchise player on the court.

It has been a tough year for the Chicago Bulls, as several injuries have kept them from reaching their full potential. However, their performance leaves them with a lot to be excited about for next season.

Many of the Bulls starters have elevated their play in Derrick Rose's absence:

Joakim Noah and Luol Deng were selected to their first and second All-Star appearances (respectively), and Carlos Boozer has the third-most double-doubles in the East with 38.

The emergence of sophomore forward Jimmy Butler has been a big surprise. His performance and potential to be even better could garner him a starting role in 2013.

The former league MVP, Rose, is expected to start next year, which could mean a championship run for the Bulls.

It hasn't been the best year for Chicago, but the future is certainly looking bright.
