I know what you're thinking: The Bulls are under .500. But a team with this much talent just can't be held down all season. Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich, Ben Wallace, and Tyrus Thomas should find a way to get it done for Chicago. Rookie Joakim Noah is the perfect energy guy off the bench. Andres Nocioni is as tough as they come. The Bulls may have a poor record, but there's not a single team in the East that doesn't prepare for Chicago like it's a big game.
