5. Derrick Rose(notes), Chicago Bulls (last year: 11th)
I take in quite a bit of noise for Bulls fans for pointing out Rose's bad defense, his inability to consistently get to the line, and his so-so passing. But I also saw him hit a three-pointer a few days ago - it had arc, rotation, follow-through; the whole schmear - and I can't help but bump the guy up. Especially with a screening and finishing partner in Carlos Boozer(notes) waltzing into town.
