Re: Did the Bulls overachieve last regular season? Phil Jackson thinks so
I said this all season that they overachieved. As a young team with key injuries for a prolonged period of time, whole new situation and starting consistency from only two positions, no player of distinction in any area outside of Rose. Outside of Rose the team lacked dribblers and was deficient in creativity. Not loosing to a top 8 team since Dec. 3rd? 22 year old leader. A lot of close games and 4th quarter wins with Rose not getting calls. No vets to win games on simple know-how. They could have had more excuses than anybody in the top eight, but they came away with the best record.
I'm glad Phil said something cause folks were dieing to ignore this.
Phil also said Rose was unstoppable and could be better on the pick and role.
