Splitter will also be able to take the pressure off Duncan in his first playoffs with good minutes, and can run the pick and roll just effectively as Tim

I still believe in quality over quantity. Thats why you get the superstars first. And you guys have quality. And thats the bulls downfall too thats why they got demolished last season by miami and your team lost to a team with quality frontcourt in memphis.

This is almost always the case. Very few exceptions of teams winning without at least 1 superstar and 1 other elite player.

You can shorten rotations and your stars play 41 plus minutes most nights. Playoff basketball is hugely different than the regular season.

I don't understand why people find it so hard to comprehend.

Spurs run out of gas after the first round unless it is a sweep, they are just too old and fragile to dominate.

If they've made it this far through this shortened season with the compressed scheduling and come out of it near the top of the standings they'll be more than fine when the playoffs start. Playoffs are going to be a walk in the park compared to the regular season

He doesn't have to. More time off between games, easier travel schedule. The games themselves are slower paced, have the extra official timeouts and longer ad breaks. Playoffs are always easier than the regular season and this year the difference will be even greater

Typical "I don't watch the Spurs, I just assume" statement.

I think you got your words mixed up there but I get your point. The real question is, do the Bulls become a better team if you take away Noah, Boozer and Deng (depth) and just swap in Dwight Howard (star power)?

For some teams star power is the answer, but in a lot of situations it also can be a team's downfall ala 2011 Southbeach. I personally think Chicago, because of depth, defensive ability and coaching will have a really good shot at taking out Miami this postseason.
