9. Chicago Bulls (Previous Week: 7)
While speculation of Derrick Rose’s possible return this season continues, the best thing that the Bulls could do is shut him down for the season even if he is healthy enough to compete. With or without Rose this Bulls roster isn’t a serious contender for the NBA championship. Allowing guys like Joaquim Noah and Carlos Boozer to lead this team down the stretch will do wonders for their confidence next season. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)
