Amongst many legendary players who have played for Chicago Bulls, Who are the top 3?
Chicago Bulls if one of the biggest names in NBA. A franchise that dominated almost whole of 1990s has certainly lost its recognition in the last few years. But the history cannot be forgotten and what they have managed to achieved is unprecedented in many ways. Let’s have a look at their top 3 players of all time.
3 Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose was a key part in post Jordan era for the Chicago Bulls. He sort of lifted the supporters and the players with his presence. Upon his arrival the fans were finally able to connect to a player after Michael Jordan. In his first season with the team he averaged 16.8 PPG and 6.3 APG. He also earned Rookie of the year award in the same year. His best season came right before his injury where he averaged 25 PPG and was named as the NBA MVP.
2 Scottie Pippen
Pippen is arguable one of the best defenders ever. He was a key player for the team who won 6 titles. His pairing with Jordan was a match made in heaven. Pippen was also very well versed with the offensive game and when Jordan took a year out of the game he stepped up to the played and averaged 22 PPG and 8.7 RPG. He was often considered as the number 2 for Jordan but Pippen showed up when it mattered the most.
1 Michael Jordan
I mean who else could it be. Jordan was the driving force that led Chicago Bulls to it’s success. Without him the two time 3-peat could not have been possible. Michael Jordan is arguably the GOAT of basketball. He was a force of nature while playing. It seemed like nothing could take his eye off from winning and nothing actually did. Jordan would probably be Number 1 in almost any list that is related to basketball.
