Which four current and/or former Chicago Bulls players had the best run during the 2020 calendar year, just a few days ahead of New Years Eve?

A highly anticipated New Years is just around the corner around the globe. It’s not just a team like the Chicago Bulls and first-year head coach Billy Donovan that is ready to move on to greener pastures in the very near future in the fourth year of the rebuild. In the midst of a crazy year, namely in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic, there’s more people than not that are ready for what the next calendar year will bring.

Most of the results provided by the Bulls during the 2020 calendar year did anything but inspire confidence in the direction that this rebuild is headed. But ownership/top management enacted a lot of changes since the spring (and the de facto outset of this team’s 2020 offseason) to change the look of this organization from the top-down.

All of the changes within this Bulls organization during the offseason haven’t led to many fruitful results at the outset of the 2020-21 regular season slate, but that was to be anticipated. The Bulls wound up finishing off the 2019-20 regular season, that was shortened in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a record of 22-43.

Chicago finished 21 games under .500 last season under the direction of former head coach Jim Boylen, which was good to place them in 11th place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Donovan has led the Bulls to a winless 0-3 start this season, which doesn’t inspire much confidence either. But patience must win the day for the Bulls after all of the changes made during the long and dramatically altered 2020 offseason.

Nonetheless, here’s a look into the four best Bulls players from the 2020 calendar year.
