There was a time when the Chicago Bulls were one of the best teams in the NBA. They had a smart, wily head coach in Tom Thibodeau, an up-and-coming superstar in Derrick Rose, a defensive wiz in Joakim Noah and good supporting pieces that made opponents miserable due to their tough, hard-nosed defense.
The peak of the Bulls came in 2011, when they won 62 games and made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals before falling to LeBron James and the Miami Heat.
Since then, it has been a downward spiral.
