Chicago Bulls fans, it is that time of the year again! The playoffs have begun and the Bulls—along with 15 other teams—are vying for an NBA championship while the remaining 14 teams are home. Fans of every team have gathered together to discuss how the players on their favorite teams performed throughout the year.

How did the Bulls fare? That question has been asked in several locations.  

The Bulls entered the 2012-13 season already behind the eight ball.

No Derrick Rose—who has been sidelined the entire time after tearing his ACL—means no title.

It has been a year full of surprises. They finished out the year with a record of 45-37, had two representatives in the NBA All-Star Game and many unsung heroes.

The Bulls have played with resolve all year, defying the odds despite falling victim to countless injuries to many key contributors.

Overall, the Bulls deserve a B.

There are some things that could have been handled better, most notably the situation regarding Rose’s recovery. The organization failed to control a couple of PR disasters that would cripple most teams.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau gets a B for his best job coaching. Had he learned to harness his players and handle their minutes better, an A would be his grade.
