Five of the best point guards in the history of the Chicago Bulls

For NBA fans and other people who love watching basketball, and are die-hard fans of the Chicago Bulls, then they would already know by now that the team has been playing for more than four decades already. So, some players have at least two or three years with the team. Another thing is that players will be classified under one position only even if they played at more than one.

Reggie Theus – This two-time All-Star player, who played from 1978 to 1984, was a very good slashing point guard for the Chicago Bulls. Theus was one of the most popular players in the Chicago Bulls, especially since he played before the era of Michael Jordan, so he was really looked up to by a lot of players and had a great number of followers and supporters. He averaged 18.8 points, with 3.4 rebounds and 5.6 assists for his team with two years of playing where he got more than his average, more than 20 points each game. He has an amazing career total of 6,453 assists which made him join other players in the top 25 of the history of the league.

Derrick Rose – Rose played for just three years now and he is already considered a franchise player and, of course, an MVP winner. He is also known to be one of the greatest point guards in the history of the Chicago Bulls. Two years ago, Rose won the Rookie of Year award and then just last year he made it to his very first All-Star game. And by the third season of 2010-11, Rose led his team to the best record in the league and, of course, as everybody knows, he also bagged the NBA MVP award with averages of 25.0 points, and 4.1 rebounds, and 7.7 assists each game.

Norm Van Lier – He is a three-time All-Star point guard and ran the Chicago Bulls’ offence during the 1970s. He played for over seven seasons and was in the All-Defensive teams for all seven seasons that he was in the Chicago Bulls. He left the team in 1978.

Clem Haskins – He was a point guard during the early years of the Bulls. Although he only played for a short time, he was able to reach the peak of his career during those times.

B.J. Armstrong – He was an All-Star and also one of the fan favorites. He started as the sixth man but later on became the starting point guard. He has contributed a lot with the Chicago Bulls’ first three NBA Championships.
