Chicago Bulls Win Chart through 61 Games

Two posts back I argued that Derrick Rose is not a serious MVP candidate.  He is having a good season, but nowhere near good enough to be considered the NBA’s most valuable player, at least in terms of wins and losses generated.

So how have the Bulls improved so dramatically?  I worked that out in a Win Chart below.  Essentially the Bulls are getting contributions from a number of different sources.  The most valuable Bull, by Marginal Win Score, has been SG Ronnie Brewer.  He has contributed the most Wins above 0.500% to the team… 0.6 wins more than Rose.  In fact, by my calculations Rose would only be the third most valuable Bulls player this season behind Brewer and Luol Deng. 

The only player on the Bulls who is having a poor season is SF Keith Bogans.  Besides him, most every other Bulls player is in the black when it comes to wins and losses generated.  Newcomer Omer Asik has really come on strong, posting nearly 1.2 wins above 0.500%.
