And now does everyone believe that we are an elite contender?
first of all none of the top 4 teams in the East would be top 4 teams in the West. second of all they all have *basically* the same record. so that fluctuates wildly. I havn't checked but I bet they aren't more than a game or 2 up on the 4 seed.
but yeah they *been* contenders. they're built for the playoffs.
Once Shaq gets back Bulls will be the 3rd best team in the EC. Definitely a contender in the East but by no means in the NBA. We haven't really beaten any good teams thus far and are a very poor road team. Still a year or 2 away from becoming a title contender.
They routed the bobcats but they lost to the friggin knicks. I love the Bulls but they'll make the ECF at best. They should of tried to get Iverson but he wears a headband so I guess he can't play for them.
