The Chicago Bulls' 2012-13 campaign will go down as one of the more forgettable ones. Although they managed to snatch the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and stun the Brooklyn Nets by winning Game 7 on their home floor in the first round of the playoffs, they had no chance to compete for a title this past season.
Derrick Rose's injury was certainly one of the major reasons, but absences of other key players in the playoffs, like Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich, was just too much for the team to fight through.
However, there have been some positives, like the emergence of Jimmy Butler, Joakim Noah's first All-Star appearance and Nate Robinson revitalizing his career with his spectacular postseason play. The Bulls are set to make a lot of noise in the 2013-14 campaign, and the following slides are my complete predictions for the Bulls next season.
