3. Kirk Hinrich (2003-2010, 2012-2016)

Number of starts: 583

The most tenured point guard that the Chicago Bulls had on the roster all throughout the 2000’s, even up to this day, is also on the NBA Hall-of-Fame ballot for 2020. While the 6-foot-4 and 190 pound former seventh overall 2003 NBA Draft pick of the Bulls, Kirk Hinrich, is on the Hall-of-Fame ballot, he’s not even close to likely to get inducted.

The fact that Hinrich is on the ballot in the first place is a testament to his consistency and winning ways in more than one decade of seasons total in a Bulls uniform. He also played in three seasons total with the Atlanta Hawks and one with the Wizards. The last games that Hinrich played during the 2015-16 NBA season came with the Hawks.

Since this is a list that just runs off of production from the Bulls starting point guards in this past decade, Hinrich doesn’t get the top or second spot in the rankings. Most of the games he started with the Bulls came due to more various D-Rose lower-body injuries. But he did start in 583 of the 748 games he played in total with this Bulls franchise.

Hinrich averaged 11.4 points per game, 5.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.1 steals, while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from three-point range in his 11 seasons with the Bulls. He racked up 8.5 win shares during his stint with the Bulls during the last decade, which came between 2012-2016.
