This Bulls team, coached by former-NCAA coach Fred Holberg, is busy trying to find a leader within its core system of players. Is it Derrick Rose? Is it Jimmy Butler? Is it Pau Gasol? Is it Joakim Noah? Usually, the most vocal player is the leader. Since we’ve heard from the Chicago Bulls, it’s usually Butler who has shown signs of leadership. Since Butler’s improvements over the last two NBA seasons, Butler wants to show he can lead a team.
If Jimmy Butler is the leader, he must decide how to integrate the players on his team into the flow of the offense and decide how they must play defence as one team.
