Re: GAME THREAD: Season Opener, Bulls vs. Heat
Holy cow, people are finally seeing this team as I do. Though it seems as if some are overreacting to ONE game, and the first real game back for Rose. Hardly a good judge of the team.
Clearly some positives to take away from the game....
Rose is back athletically. The rust will get knocked off. He's back.
Rose clearly has confidence in his shot, so it must be improved (or he got less intelligent when hurt).
Still the same, pesky Bulls that never quit.
Negatives, too, though...
No one but Rose can create their own shot, and the players surrounding Rose can't hit long shots. Been saying this for a long time now.
The starting lineup of Rose, Butler, Deng, Boozer, and Noah has exactly ZERO players that can hit a three more frequently than I can, and that's a problem.
We will not beat the Heat without the ability to get hot from downtown.
