I wouldn't go that far.

Roy Hibbert is the most important player.

Unless the Spolestra comes up with better offense, but I highly doubt it.

Part of that is because Stan never used that combo much at all. If the opponent has a limited SF, put Jameer/Reddick/Rashard/Howard/Gortat. If they happen to have an excellent onball defender, but limited SF, then Jameer/Hedo/Rashard/Howard/Gortat

Don't see Pau Gasol helping Bulls much. He is WAY out of shape. Granted, he's still better than Boozer.

Not when you still got Boozer. He's going to screw up you guys one way or another.

That's probably the best player they can get for Granger. Maybe EJ would stop getting frequently injured if he is with the Pacers.

I have not seen Wade being used as a screener. It worked for Lebron. I'm sure it can work for Wade.

That is a good point. Bulls don't have much great ballhandlers. They definitely need guys like Pau Gasol who can pass or create/cause a mismatch much like Noah.

Bosh is certainly not being used in the post (and probably hardly ever will). Wade will continue to decline unless his shooting got better, but his knees are completely shot.

They won another championship, so the desire to go at it again is lessened.
