The old saying goes "To Be The Best, You Need To Beat The Best." Meaning to become the absolute top of your craft, you need to find a way to be better than the top of your field. Businesses around the world use this saying as a way to motivate their employees always to go that extra mile because it is always better to be the best in your position/field. We all want it and while only some of us strive to be the best in our professions, the desire to be better is always there.
The NBA is no different. The Chicago Bulls are currently the third best team (record wise) in the Eastern Conference at a record of 34-16 only trailing the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat. Outside the San Antonio Spurs you could argue that the Chicago Bulls are the most surprising team in the league while they continue to win games missing key pieces of their starting rotation. You could also say that the reason behind the success of the Chicago Bulls is because they have the MVP of the league in Derrick Rose running the point for them.
Although I am not ready to hand over the MVP to the first overall pick of the 2008 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls could have a real problem come the playoffs that has nothing to do with any health issue of any player on the floor. In fact it is something so small that most fans do not even recognize it.
