How far can the Bulls go without Derrick Rose?

Throughout the whole season, there was the storyline of how the Bulls would do without Derrick Rose. He was missing time with minor injuries and the Bulls still had some success. He never had an injury as serious as the one he suffered in Game 1 today though.

Late in the 4th quarter with the Bulls up by 10+ points, Derrick Rose was still in the game. He drove to the basket and landed awkwardly, tearing his ACL and MCL in the process. It’s an absolute shame that he has suffered another injury, but now he needs to work towards getting back next season.

The question now, though, is what the Bulls will do without Rose. The Bulls have been pretty good without Rose and were still able to lock up the #1 seed in the East. The painful truth though, is that without Rose the Bulls can’t win a championship. I hate to count out a team like that, but it’s the truth. CJ Watson and John Lucas have been good, but nothing on the level of Rose and nothing that can stop the Heat.

While I think they will still beat the 76’ers, the Bulls chase for the championship will most likely come up short again.
