Chicago Bulls Ranked Seventh On SB Nation's 2011-12 Watchability Scale

When you are perusing your TV Guide and looking for quality NBA action this season, keep in mind that SB Nation has created an easy to use "watchability scale," and know the Chicago Bulls come in as the seventh-best team in the league to tune in and see.

It's a fun little project that takes into account a myriad of factors, including: overall team talent, presence of a star player (Derrick Rose, anyone?), effort, ball-sharing tendencies, etc. Here's what SB Nation editor Mike Prada had to say about the Bulls:

7.  Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose, whether he deserved the MVP or not, is one of the top five most electrifying players in the game. He alone makes the Bulls worth checking out every night. But don't forget about that defense, which stifles players not by brute force, but rather with effort and incredible attention to detail. Don't call it ugly, because that does it a disservice. If there's anyone in the league that can turn something as unheralded as a defensive rotation into poetry in motion, it's the Chicago Bulls.    

In case you were wondering, the top five teams were the Miami Heat, LA Clippers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies.
