It has been a season that Derrick Rose came back to life as he is providing MVP type of numbers to his new team this year. Still, the lack of personnel that can provide the team consistent contributions is still lacking. Reggie Jackson and Luke Kennard are still in the injured list along with Blake Griffin who has been contemplating getting a surgery that will shelf him the entire season. Andre Drummond has been the team’s franchise player for the past decade and he has been on the trade talks more often. Still, the big upside right now is the emergence and progression of “Dr. Doom” Sekou Duomboya who has shown flashes of what he could be in this league as he took over the minutes of Griffin.
