|Bulls Seeking More After Making Conference Finals
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were stocking the trophy case the last time the Chicago Bulls were this good. Now, Derrick Rose wants to add to the collection.
The league's youngest MVP has his sights set on the biggest prize of all as the Bulls get set to open the season.
Chicago came close last year but ultimately fell short, losing to Miami in the Eastern Conference finals after winning 62 games during the regular season.
The Bulls boast the reigning MVP in Rose and Coach of the Year in Tom Thibodeau. They won more games than any other team during the regular season after back-to-back .500 records and first-round playoff exits. Even so, they couldn't beat the Heat.
Chicago opens the season on the road Sunday against the Lakers.
