chi.gifMatt from Blog-a-Bull breaks down the Bulls:

2. What are the team’s biggest strengths?

Depth. The Bulls have as many as 10 players that deserve minutes in the rotation (Rose, Hinrich, Gordon, Hughes, Sefolosha, Deng, Nocioni, Thomas, Noah, Gooden). This allows for plenty of flexibility as well as damage control in the event of injury or trade. In fact, look for the Bulls to deal from some of this depth, especially from the backcourt, to thin out the roster. If not, while it's good to have options, Del Negro will have a tough time keeping everyone content with their minutes.

Nels from Give Me The Rock shares his thoughts.

3. What are the team’s biggest weaknesses?

Defense. Yeah, Larry Hughes gets a lot of steals, but I’m hoping he doesn’t get a lot of playing time. The Bulls frontcourt looks to be Drew Gooden and Joakim, and while not terrible defensively, they’re probably going to have a hard time shutting down other teams’ big men. Contain maybe, but they - Gooden especially - are going to have to make up for it on the other end.
