There are 12 point guards that got at least a dozen starts at the one for the Chicago Bulls in the last decade. How do they rank out?

Since the departure of the often-injured former Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose from the Windy City in 2016, there was not a whole lot of continuity at the position. Point guard was actually the weakest position in the starting five, and the entire Bulls rotation as a whole, since the beginning of the 2016-17 regular season.

As the Bulls are nearing the turn of the calendar year in the midst of the third season of the rebuild, there’s a lot to reflect about what went right and wrong over the last decade. Something that definitely went wrong was the line of point guards rolling through the Windy City since the departure of D-Rose, in that heralded trade with the New York Knicks in the 2016 offseason.

We’re going back to the 2009-10 NBA season to find the best starting point guards at any time in this past decade for the Bulls. There’s a couple that got a decent amount of starts in certain seasons thanks to the rampant knee injury issues that D-Rose underwent later on in his Bulls tenure. It was also a revolving door of starting point guards since the Bulls missed the playoffs in the last three years.

The criteria used here to select the best point guards of the last decade for the Bulls has to encompass at least a dozen starts at the position. And that player had to be considered playing the point guard position for the Bulls in those dozen starts.

Here’s a deeper look into the ranking of each starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls throughout the last decade, as we’re nearing the turn of the calendar year to 2020.
