The Chicago Bulls in 2013-14
The Chicago Bulls are hanging tough in 2013-14, even though things are not going to
plan. The Bulls spent the offseason in anticipation of Derrick Rose's return, only to see the former Most Valuable Player
suffer another injury early in the season. While Rose's 2013-14 campaign looks lost, the Bulls' is not. This team still has
a lot of good players on the roster aside from Rose, and head coach Tom Thibodeau always has the team playing great defense.
This team knows how to play together and could very well make the postseason without their best player, just as they did last
season. That says a lot about this team and how well-coached it is.
Losing Luol Deng in a trade was a blow to the team,
but the Bulls have not even blinked. This team is relying heavily on center Joakim Noah, who has developed into more than
just a defensive presence. Noah gives maximum effort on every play in every game, and his energy is contagious throughout
the roster. Players like Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler might not get a lot of national attention, but they're having fine seasons
and helping to keep this Chicago team in the mix for the playoffs. The Eastern Conference is wide open behind the top two
teams, Indiana and Miami, and the Bulls could rise to as high as the third seed in the East if they can play stellar ball
down the stretch. This team defends night in and night out, and that's a great way to win games, even in the modern NBA. Be
there in the United Center when the Bulls take the court this postseason.
The Experience of a Chicago Bulls Playoff
The atmosphere at an NBA game is simply electric every time these amazing athletes take the floor, and that is
even more the case when it comes to the playoffs. The National Basketball League is filled with great players from all over
the world, athletes hailing from a multitude of countries and continents. This is the top hoops league on the planet, and
that will be evident as soon as you see a couple of plays from your very own seat in the stands. The biggest fans come out
to the arena on a regular basis, and once you see the camaraderie that exists at the United Center you'll be ready to return
right away. In the playoffs, everything is taken to the next level, so make sure to experience that the next time the Bulls
reach the postseason and host a game.
Chicago Bulls Trivia
Did you know that Joakim Noah's father was
a professional tennis player?
That's right. Yannick Noah had a notable pro tennis career, and it probably doesn't hurt
to have that kind of athletic genes when you're a pro basketball player. Noah has developed into one of the top centers in
the National Basketball Association, especially on the defensive end. He has come a long way on offense since entering the
league, though, and head coach Tom Thibodeau uses his great passing ability to facilitate the offense without Derrick Rose
on the floor.
Chicago Bulls Postseason History
The Chicago Bulls have had some incredible seasons over
the years, and the fans of the team have many fond memories of Bulls playoff moments. Chicago's fans have seen some incredible
contests in the postseason throughout the team's history, especially during the Michael Jordan era. The Bulls have won their
division title nine times, which is always the preferred way to make the playoffs. Chicago has appeared in the NBA Finals
six times, winning each series behind the great Michael Jordan. Jordan led the Bulls to two three-peats, that's three consecutive
championships, during his illustrious career with the Bulls. Jordan had some of the most memorable playoff moments in the
history of the National Basketball Association. Two of his best-known game winners came against the Cleveland Cavaliers in
the first round of the playoffs and against the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. Other Chicago Bulls have had a number of clutch
moments in the postseason as well.
