Movin’ On Up: Bulls All-Time Statistics Projections

With  Kirk Hinrich coming back, we were curious to speculate on where these players could end up with one more season down. Along with just 2012-13, how close are these active guys to moving up on the main all-time team leader boards. Keep reading to find out more.

Kirk Hinrich is the only active player to lead any one of the franchises all-time stat categories. Three-pointers made and Three-pointers attempted. At 31 years of age and a two-year contract, he could hold those records for some time.

But what about any other records? Seeing they are dominated by a man whose name rhymes with Schmordan, it’s likely that he wont touch any of those, or any other Bulls player, anytime soon.

All lists are the top 10 all-time leaders in order, then any close active players are listed in addition. Some other players were thrown in for pure comparison.


Games played: It would take Luol Deng 5 seasons to beat out Jordan in a perfect world. Jordan holds the team record with 930 games played. Luol has 539 to his name, being the closest Bull to his airness. Unfortunately, Luol is still playing with a torn ligament in his hand, and has an injury track record.

Minutes Played and Minutes Per Game: Luol will be close, to getting up to the 4th spot on this list within the season. Fifth is only a matter of 3 minutes, to pass up Mr. 48 minutes of intensity himself, Norm Van Lier.
