The Chicago Bulls had a decent season last year, which ended in the first round of the playoffs with a 4-1 series loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. They finished the regular season with a record of 41-41, as they have for the past two years.

With the major signing of Carlos Boozer and Kyle Korver from the Utah Jazz, they have definitely entered their name into the short list of teams who could make a pretty big impact in the playoffs this year.

They also picked up Ronnie Brewer from the Grizzlies and Kurt Thomas from the Bucks. These could also prove to be some good additions as role players and supporting cast members.

The one person they shouldn't have let go is Kirk Hinrich, who went to the Wizards via trade. Either way, they definitely have made the most of this offseason despite not landing the Big Three that signed in Miami.

The Bulls will still be putting a solid squad out on the floor come the beginning of the season. PG Derrick Rose will be running the show with 20.8 ppg and 6 apg last season. C Joakim Noah was also very productive putting up 10.7 ppg, 11.0 rpg, and 2.1 apg.

The Bulls seem to have taken the right steps to build upon their playoff entry last year. They should be the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference this year with around 50 wins. By my predictions, this would pit the Bulls against the Hawks in the first round. The Bulls should win that series.

They would then move on to play the Miami Heat in the Conference Semifinals. They should be able to take that series to six games but they still will lose that series in the end.
