Video: Highlights from the Bulls regular season
There isn’t much the Chicago Bulls didn’t accomplish this year. After an offseason where a few of the NBA’s best players took their talents elsewhere, the Bulls added a new head coach and 10 players to their roster, and entered the 2010-2011 season with soaring expectations.
The results were the league’s best record at 62-20, the overall No. 1 seed in the playoffs and leading candidates for Coach of the Year and Most Valuable Player. And all of this despite losing key players to injury for nearly 60 games. In short, it’s been a remarkable season.
But the Bulls aren’t done. As the team opens the playoffs Saturday against the Indiana Pacers at the United Center, expectations are even higher than at the start of the season. Led by All-Star point guard Derrick Rose and tireless coach Tom Thibodeau, who some credit as the key to the Bulls success this year, the team is primed for a deep post-season run.
Chicago Loopster takes a look back at some of the top plays from this season and reasons why the city of Chicago is looking forward to the running of the Bulls.
