The Chicago Bulls may not have the most dominant stars this side of the Milky Way. But they do roster two players who orbit that stratosphere.

That duo, of course, is Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, neither of whom cracked Bleacher Report’s list of the three most dominant NBA stars at each position.

Instead, LaVine received honorable mention along with shooting guards Jaylen Brown and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. DeRozan, meanwhile, earned the same distinction along with small forwards Brandon Ingram and Khris Middleton.

LaVine and DeRozan helped the Bulls quench a five-year playoff drought last season. In doing so, DeMar DeRozan earned All-NBA Second Team honors for what was arguably the best season of his 13-year-career.

To his credit, Zach LaVine was building a strong case to be considered one of the 15-best players in the Association, himself, before a knee injury in January.

Devin Booker, Paul George, and Donovan Mitchell topped the list for shooting guards. While Jayson Tatum, Kawhi Leonard, and Jimmy Butler ranked as the best at their position among small forwards.

Just a guy who loves sports almost as much as I love writing about them. Chicago through and through. “When they go low, we stay high.”

Hard to argue most of this…..accept Leonard…..I mean the guy hasn’t seen the court in almost 2 years. Yes he is a superstar, a great two way player, and as clutch as they come……still he hasn’t played in two years and who knows how long (if ever) it will take for him to return to an elite level when he does return. Look at Klay (GSW) return this year. His splits were crap (especially for him) and he still wasn’t close to his old form even though he was effective enough to contribute to their championship run this year. I hate it when awards or recognition goes to guys who aren’t even playing. Did they have Kyrie as one of their top PG or maybe Ben Simmons? How about in the future these brilliant talking heads leave guys who haven’t played the entire season off their current lists.
