In an expected development year, the Chicago Bulls have experienced a fair share of ups and downs. Let’s look at the defining moments of the 2018-19 season.

Two years ago, the Chicago Bulls finally pulled the trigger and committed to a rebuild. For a franchise that had previously made the playoffs in 11 of the last 13 seasons, this was a crushing blow. How could a team that went 590-460 in that thirteen-year stretch ever become accustomed to losing?

Alas, with all that success, the team never earned a trip to the NBA Finals. It was time to adapt to modern basketball and rebuild through the process former 76ers General Manager Sam Hinkie revolutionized: tanking.

Although the Bulls will finish 2019 as an Eastern Conference cellar dweller for the second consecutive year, things are finally starting to look bright in the Windy City.

As the sun sets on the Chicago Bulls’ 2018-2019 campaign, let’s review some of the highlights (and lowlights) this season had to share.
