1. Jabari Parker

I feel like putting Jabari at the No. 1 spot is a little bold, but at the same time, I’m not sure he belongs anywhere else on this list.

After returning from injury last season, Parker struggled to find his way back into the Milwaukee Bucks rotation. He only played in 31 regular season games during the 2017-18 campaign and averaged 24.0 minutes per game. Despite all that, he still managed to put up 12.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game on 48.2 percent shooting from the field and 38.3 percent shooting from 3-point range.

His per 36 numbers were 18.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists. I’ll take that.

Unlike most other players on the Bulls roster – Parker has some playoff experience. On a team filled with young talent that has hopes of making the playoffs ASAP, that experience is invaluable.

Yes, Parker has struggled with some tough injuries and finding his way back into Milwaukee’s rotation seemed like it had been tough for him, but don’t over-think it.

Jabari Parker is the best player on the Chicago Bulls and it’s really not that close. Not yet, anyway.
