THE RATINGS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Derrick Rose (PG)
Overall 83 (down from 87)
Close 88
Med 87 (up from 84)
3pt 67 (down from 68)
FT 79 (down from 84)
Layup 99

Vertical 99
Off Dribble 81
In Traffic 77
Quickness 99
Hustle 88
Hands 92
Ball Defense 75
Standing Dunk 50 (down from 75)

Outlook: Rose is the most athletic point guard in the league, and quite possibly ever. He needs to improve his defense and long-range shooting going forward. If he does that, he'll be a sure-fire superstar.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Luol Deng (SF)
Overall 83 (down from 84)
Close 88
Med 83
3pt 73 (up from 71)
FT 77 (down from 81)
Layup 80
Dunk 77

Stam 95
Dur 80
DefAwr 79
OffAwr 80 (down from 83)
Potential 82
Strength 68
Vertical 76
Off Dribble 79
In Traffic 80
Quickness 76
Hustle 88
Hands 87
Ball Defense 79
Standing Dunk 50

Outlook: Deng struggled under the pressure of his new contract and eventually had season ending surgery. He does a little bit of everything, but could stand to improve his 3pt shooting in order to truly break out.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

John Salmons (SG/SF)
Overall 82 (down from 84)
Close 88
Med 83
3pt 87 (up from 86)
FT 83 (down from 84)
Layup 82
Dunk 72 (down from 78)
Handle 84 (up from 83)
Pass 68
PostOff 74
PostDef 65
Block 56
Steal 65 (down from 78)
RebOff 62 (down from 64)
RebDef 67 (down from 73)
Speed 82
Stam 95
Dur 85 (up from 75)
DefAwr 73
OffAwr 83 (down from 85)
Potential 70
Strength 63
Vertical 73
Off Dribble 85
In Traffic 76
Quickness 80
Hustle 71
Hands 84
Ball Defense 72
Standing Dunk 50

Outlook: Salmons filled in for Deng after his injury and the team didn't miss a beat. Now he'll fill in for Ben Gordon as the team hopes for a similar effect. Since they are both good scorers with poor defense, I'd say it's pretty likely.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Kirk Hinrich (PG/SG)
Overall 82 (down from 84)
Close 75 (down from 77)
Med 83 (up from 80)
3pt 86 (down from 88)
FT 81 (down from 83)
Layup 84 (down from 87)
Dunk 56
Handle 88 (down from 94)
Pass 78 (down from 83)

PostDef 57 (up from 52)
Block 59 (up from 54)

RebDef 62 (down from 63)
Speed 85
Stam 95
Dur 80
DefAwr 82 (down from 84)
OffAwr 80 (down from 81)
Potential 82 (down from 87)
Strength 59
Vertical 79
Off Dribble 84
In Traffic 69
Quickness 87
Hustle 93
Hands 91
Ball Defense 88
Standing Dunk 50

Outlook: Lost between the emergence of Rose, and Hinrich's injury, was the fact that he rebounded from his poor season a year prior. He's the primary backup at both guard spots and will probably see more time at SG due to how many minutes Rose is capable of logging (and with Pargo in town, that might push Hinrich exclusively to SG).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tyrus Thomas (PF)
Overall 81
Close 72 (down from 76)
Med 77
3pt 64 (up from 62)
FT 78
Layup 76

Strength 68
Vertical 97
Off Dribble 72
In Traffic 74
Quickness 73
Hustle 82
Hands 73
Ball Defense 77
Standing Dunk 99

Outlook: An athletic player who has yet to consistently apply it to his game. He doesn't have much of a post game, and he hasn't developed his perimeter skills enough to play SF. Entering his contract year though, which could mean he finally "gets it".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Brad Miller (C)
Overall 81 (up from 79)
Close 82 (up from 80)
Med 84 (up from 82)
3pt 77

Off Dribble 70
In Traffic 74
Quickness 58 (up from 53)
Hustle 66
Hands 84
Ball Defense 53
Standing Dunk 75

Outlook: One of the best backup centers in the league, thanks to his excellent shooting ability. Still rebounds well and is a very intelligent offensive player. He offers a nice alternative to Ben Wallace-esque Joakim Noah.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Joakim Noah (C/PF)
Overall 80
Close 72 (down from 76)
Med 56 (down from 60)

Off Dribble 58
In Traffic 63
Quickness 70
Hustle 95
Hands 63
Ball Defense 74
Standing Dunk 75 (down from 99)

Outlook: One of the best rebounders in the league, and a great defensive player for his age. A poor offensive player, but still an effective player going forward.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jannero Pargo (PG/SG)
Overall 76 (up from 67)
Close 70 (up from 62)
Med 79 (up from 75)

Vertical 72
Off Dribble 81
In Traffic 63 (down from 71)
Quickness 83
Hustle 84
Hands 82
Ball Defense 83
Standing Dunk 50

Outlook: Returns to the league after spending last season in Europe. A good perimeter defender and shooter, two skills the Bulls certainly needed more of.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

James Johnson (SF/PF)

Outlook: An all-around player, but won't steal much time from Luol Deng and John Salmons at the outset.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Taj Gibson (PF)
Overall 75

Outlook: The 24 year old rookie is actually older than Tyrus Thomas, the 4 year vet he'll be backing up. He doesn't have much upside, but he does have a few of the same skills which make him an insurance policy if Tyrus leaves as a free agent next summer.

Lindsey Hunter (PG)
Overall 74 (up from 72)
Close 63
Med 75 (down from 78)

Outlook: Basically filling a player/coach role with the team. As usual, he won't see much time until the playoffs come rolling around.

Outlook: Gray's pros and cons are summed up with three words - Big Slow Center. Decent offensive player and rebounder due to his size and strength, but simply can't keep up on the defensive end.

Outlook: The worst contract of the century will be retiring at seasons end due to a knee injury.

I like your ratings, I just think that Jerome James needs to be in the 50s, but that's just my opinion, and Taj needs to be higher, he's showing way more consistency than Tyrus, not trying to make an argument, just look at the number..[#1 Chicago Bulls Fan]
