Here's a closer look at the Bulls roster, along with Mike McGraw's assessment of the players entering the NBA playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.
1 Derrick Rose
Ht.: 6-3; Pos: PG; Yrs pro: 2
Stats: 25.0 pts., 7.7 acts, .858 FT pct., 37.4 minutes.
The only thing left to do in an MVP season is lead the Bulls to a title at age 22.
3 Omer Asik
Ht.: 7-0; Pos: C; Yrs pro: Rookie
Stats: 2.8 pts., 3.7 rebs, .553 FG pct., 12.1 minutes.
Rookie may not get a ton of court time in playoffs, but he's changed games this season.
5 Carlos Boozer
Ht.: 6-9; Pos: PF; Yrs pro: 8
Stats: 17.5 pts., 9.6 rebs, .510 FG pct., 31.9 minutes.
He had clutch playoff moments in Utah, which is why Bulls paid the big bucks.
6 Keith Bogans
Ht.: 6-5; Pos: SG; Yrs pro: 7
Stats: 4.4 pts., 1.2 acts, .380 3-pt pct., 17.8 minutes.
This says it all: Bulls are 26-2 when Bogans scores at least 6 points. His defense is usually solid.
9 Luol Deng
Ht.: 6-9; Pos: SF; Yrs pro: 6
Stats: 17.4 pts., 5.8 rebs, 2.8 acts, 39.1 minutes.
In the Bulls' only playoff series win since '98, Deng averaged 26.3 points vs. Miami in '07.
11 Ronnie Brewer
Ht.: 6-7, Pos: SG; Yrs pro: 4
Stats: 6.2 pts., 3.2 rebs, 1.3 stls, 22.0 minutes.
Sprained left thumb shouldn't stop his relentless defense, which has been vital this season.
12 Jannero Pargo
Ht.: 6-1; Pos: G; Yrs pro: 7
Unlikely to be on active roster in playoffs. Bulls brought him back for leadership and practice.
13 Joakim Noah
Ht.: 6-11; Pos: C; Yrs pro: 3
Stats: 11.7 pts., 10.4 rebs, 1.5 blks, 32.8 minutes.
Just like at Florida, Noah gets pumped for the postseason. He's averaged 13.1 rebounds in playoffs.
15 John Lucas III
Ht.: 5-11; Pos: PG; Yrs pro: 2
Stats: 1.0 points in limited minutes.
His main job is to play the point in practice, so Rose can get more rest.
22 Taj Gibson
Ht.: 6-9; Pos: PF; Yrs pro: 1
Stats: 7.1 pts., 5.7 rebs, 1.3 blks, 21.8 minutes.
Front-line depth has been one of this team's strongest assets. Gibson steps up whenever needed.
24 Brian Scalabrine
Ht.: 6-9; Pos: PF; Yrs pro: 9
Stats: 1.1 pts. in limited minutes.
Fan favorite is likely to stay inactive during playoffs, but uses his experience to help teammates.
26 Kyle Korver
Ht.: 6-7; Pos: SF; Yrs pro: 7
Stats: 8.3 pts., .415 3-pt pct., .885 FT pct., 20.1 minutes.
One of the league's best spot-up shooters, Korver is usually on court in crunch time.
32 C.J. Watson
Ht.: 6-2, Pos: PG, Yrs pro: 3
Stats: 4.9 pts., 2.3 acts, .393 3-pt pct., 13.3 minutes.
Serving as Rose's backup has meant less playing time for former Warrior, but he hasn't complained.
40 Kurt Thomas
Ht.: 6-9; Pos: C; Yrs pro: 38
Stats: 4.1 pts., 5.8 rebs, .511 FG pct., 22.7 minutes.
Veteran center, who played in '99 Finals with Knicks, still defends as well as anyone in post.
45 Rasual Butler
Ht.: 6-7; Pos: SF; Yrs pro: 8
Stats: 2.7 points in limited minutes.
Former Clipper hasn't played much, but hit go-ahead 3-pointer vs. Nets on Wednesday.
