The one outcome that is inconceivable in Chicago is that the Bulls will lapse out of playoff contention. In spite of Rose's year-long absence last season and numerous injuries to his teammates, coach Tom Thibodeau drove the Bulls to 45 wins and the second round of the playoffs after upsetting the hopeless Nets. Between Thibodeau, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and their other high achievers, the Bulls are sure to be back in the playoffs -- they may earn home court advantage in their mediocre conference.
