What happened to the Bulls?

Opinions varied as to what type of team Chicago would be this season, but nobody thought it would be the kind that loses at home to the 1-19 Nets.

High expectations greeted the Bulls this fall after they narrowly lost an epic playoff series against Boston last spring. With a promising young point guard in Derrick Rose and with forward Luol Deng returning from injury, most experts pegged Chicago for the playoffs. Some thought they could be a 50-win team and challenge the East's upper crust. Certainly nobody thought they'd be a 50-loss team.
