Not to try and give recognition to JPR or anything, but the Bulls will be much better in the playoffs than they will be in the regular season, because of that defense. Cleveland, New Jersey and Miami might get better records, but Chicago can beat them all.
If they lose to anyone it's Miami.
Wrong, if there's a contender they do beat, it's Miami. Miami always has trouble against Chicago, and that was with Tyson Chandler as their best big man. Now they have two guys who are way better than Chandler. The big 3 in the West should be able to beat them though. And no Houston is not anywhere near that group, because they always flame out, and I just can't take them seriously anymore.
As for China, this was not a test at all for the US because China has the backcourt of a crappy WAC team. Yao can't do much when he doesn't even have the ball. I'm surprised China didn't lose by 40+.
