NBA Power Rankings 2012: SB Nation's Tom Ziller Places Chicago Bulls At No. 2

With the start of the 2012 NBA playoffs right around the corner, SB Nation's Tom Ziller has released his latest set of NBA power rankings. Ziller ranks the Bulls at No. 2 overall, behind the San Antonio Spurs.

We worry about Derrick Rose's health, and rightfully so: He's the talisman on what has become the league's No. 6 offense. But Chicago has been pretty darned good without Rose this season, and there's a sneaking suspicion that the ailments that have kept the point guard out during the regular season wouldn't do the same in the playoffs.
