The Chicago Bulls are still recovering from an incredibly disappointing season that saw them miss out on the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

In Fred Hoiberg's rookie season as an NBA coach, the former Eastern Conference powerhouse struggled with injuries and limped to 9th with a 42-40 record.

Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah are now with the New York Knicks while Pau Gasol has switched coasts to join the San Antonio Spurs. Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo have come in to form a new big three.

In an attempt to avoid a repeat of last season, and ensure they return to the playoffs next year, franchise star Jimmy Butler has been working hard throughout the offseason.

Despite going to the Olympics and winning gold with Team USA, there appears to be no rest for the two-time All-Star as he has been working with Doug McDermott and trainer Travelle Gaines on Los Cabos beach.

Butler gave his all last season to the Bulls as he was voted to the All-Star game for the second time in his career. A repeat performance of his 20.9 points per game will be vital to the franchise in their pursuit to compete once again.
