The Chicago Bulls in Basketball Prospectus 2010-11

The Pro Basketball Prospectus 2010-11 came out recently. Bulls fans not willing to drop 10 General Washingtons on the digital download are fortunate enough to receive a free preview of the Bulls 2010-11 team!

The gist of the Bulls chapter: Things are looking good.

When a large swath of the preview focuses on how the Bulls will affectively challenge the Miami Heat, it portends well. Below is a chart comparing the projected WARP (Wins Above Replacement Player) for the Bulls and Heat. Basically, the Heat have three amazing players and a collection of also-rans, while the Bulls have three great players with a all-around solid depth:

If pro sports teams really do follow quasi-business cycles, then this Bulls team is in the most enviable of positions: The upswing. Our star players -- Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah -- are on the right side of 30 and our big off-season acquisition -- Carlos Boozer -- turns 29 next month (though that has no bearing on his injury history).

Here's to a great 2010-11 Bulls season!
