Default Which Bull has to up his game most

Thread is simple. Which player has to take his game up to the next level for the Bulls to get to June.



In my order, top 5 are -

Boozer
Rip
Lucas
Watson
Deng



We have seen Boomer light it up with Rose out and he has to do that. He had a sub-par game in game 1 but he didn't have enough shots. Of course now Rip has to lead our team. He's won it all and can lead the team with his experience and playmaking ability. He's looked much better the past few weeks and isn't afraid to shoot it whenever ala Rose. Lucas has to be the X Factor. He can get as hot as anyone on the team and has a quick trigger and cocky attitude like he's a top 5 player. This is what makes him valuable, he will not shy away from the big moment. Watson has to up his distribution that much more. He can move the ball well but I honestly think he should not start. I would like to see the bench mob stay intact for the playoffs. Let JL3 start because the bench flows so well as a unit.






What are your guys opinions???





On a side not, first Cutler, now Rose. Damn. And not to mention these were the seasons after we lost in the conference title games.

Korver has been playing at such a high level of late. If he can keep a high level of scoring efficiency throughout the playoffs, while accepting the added volume, then we really can't ask for anything else from him.

Watson is the natural person that we need to step up. He has been off and on effective in his recovery, but between him and Lucas, the answer has become obvious.

They don't have anyone who can really take over games now that Rose is out. They just need to play great team basketball like they did when Rose was out. Everyone needs to step up their game.

The Bulls not only need Derrick Rose but they need another superstar player.

Great point. Just about every player need to step up but if there's one single player that can really help their cause while others just increase their output a tad bit, it would be CJ Watson. As in Less mistakes/turnovers, hitting his shots while dictating tempo, playing good defense and setting up teammates.
