GET ROSE A SUPPORTING CAST: PHIL JACKSON INSTRUCTS
Mon, 31 Oct 2011 06:43 PM EDT

Former NBA coach Phil Jackson said the Chicago Bulls overachieved last season, and he subscribes to the conventional thinking that the Bulls need to add pieces to help Derrick Rose. “I think they overachieved last year as far as record and how they got to the spots they got to in the playoffs,” Jackson said Thursday.

Phil Jackson definitely has seen this picture before. Before he took over the coaching reigns from Doug Collins in Chicago the Bulls were an exciting team with a dynamic superstar named Michael Jordan. No one could stop Michael so they stopped everyone else and the team suffered. Scores

Derrick Rose is now in the driver seat in Chicago and he has talent and the charisma to be a winner if he gets the help that Michael needed to win championships.

Phil goes on to elaborate. “They still have to have some steady shooters from the outside to complement the penetration they have, and then (Carlos Boozer) has to have that post-up game that he was brought there to give them. “They just can’t be one-dimensional in that regard. The new Bulls team has to have those complementary pieces to assist Rose in his game.”

The Jordan team was transitioned from a one dimensional team to a team that not only scored proficiently but played stellar defense. They had three point marksmen and could go inside when necessary. The created an offensive scheme to emphasize their strengths and minimize weaknesses.

The Bulls of the present can take a chapter from the Bulls of the past. You need your Scottie, dead eye marksmen like Paxson and Kerr, and your scrappy rebounding, hard-nosed rugged player like Rodman to provide Rose a championship ring.
Jackson has high respect and praise for Rose. “He shows himself to be unstoppable, and that’s a real tremendous year he had last year,” said Jackson, “But they still have to have some pieces around them.”

The Bulls finished 62-20 to secure the No. 1 seed in the NBA. They advanced to the Eastern Conference finals before losing to the Miami Heat in five games.

Rose became the Bulls’ first MVP since Michael Jordan played for Jackson’s six championship teams in Chicago in the 1990s.
