Finally, we arrive at the leader of the Bulls. Derrick Rose led the team to a 62-20 record, and eventually went on to win the league's MVP Award. He has improved his game considerably each year he has been playing professional ball, and one would expect him to do the same this year.
Obviously, Derrick is a very gifted offensive player. He led the team in scoring and assists, with 25 and 7.7 respectively. Add in his quickness and his 40-inch vertical, and it allows him to attack the rim harder than any other point guard. His offense is at its best when he can penetrate into the paint.
On the other hand, his decision-making has been called into question, especially after a season of taking almost 20 field-goal attempts per contest. He also tends to force the ball when he can't get penetration, and turns the ball over a lot as a result, as evidenced by his 3.4 turnovers per contest last year.
Derrick's development could go one of two ways. If he works on passing and facilitating the offense like a true point guard, his assist numbers would rise, and his turnovers would likely decrease. However, I think he should work on his three-point shooting, as this adds more dimensions to his offensive game. It will also force his man to play tight all the way to the three-point line, allowing for more opportunities to beat his man while running isolation plays.
