5. Bulls Miss Playoffs For First Time In Eight Years
The Bulls were advertised as a championship-caliber team that was in need of a different voice to help get them over the hump. That being said, the organization turned to Fred Hoiberg to be that voice in question.
As I alluded to a bit ago, the Bulls got off to a decent start in Hoiberg’s first season. But thanks to their inability to play well on a consistent basis, injuries and lack of team chemistry, the Bulls were eliminated from playoff contention with two games left to go in the regular season.
The irony here is the previous coach won 65 percent of his games and the team never finished lower than fifth in the conference during a five-year stretch. That being said, it will be interesting to see if Hoiberg will fare any better in year two.
