General Manager - Gar Forman

[b]1. TRUE or FALSE: Joakim Noah is more important to the Bulls success than Derrick Rose.
The Bulls won their most games when Noah missed a lot of games and had his worse year in recent memory. They went their farthest in the playoffs when he had his worse playoffs. He was 8 and 10 and getting benched in the 4th quarters for bad play. I love him but he isn't a franchise player yet - he is consistently a very good player. which is critical for a lot wins. Rose, when healthy broke down more defenses than any player playing. Right now there might be only three or four players that do that consistently in the league, but none at the level of Rose.

2. TRUE or FALSE: Jimmy Butler is THAT good.
One year is never good enough to evaluate a player (see Lin). You don't know until the scouting report goes gung ho at a player. With that said, yeah he's a player.
3. TRUE or FALSE: Despite Thibodeau's defensive genius, Bulls need to improve their offensive creativity.
They ran plays last year but only excelled when Nate Robinson dropped the play book in the playoffs. So they still need to develop offensively.
4. AGREE or DISAGREE: More Taj Gibson, Less Carlos Boozer.
Yes. Taj is more versatile and uses his height better. Better defender and just as creative offensively as Booze. Not as skilled yet but can attain that level.
5. The one "X Factor" that can catapult the Bulls over the top East competitors is:
If Jimmy Butler improves and becomes a legit second option the Bulls can win it all with a healthy Rose.
