I have a prediction for this board, and its january so i want my props for saying it when it comes true.
I watched the bulls last night vs the nets.
IF THE KNICKS MEET THE BULLS IN THE POST SEASON, WE WILL BEAT THEM EASILY !!!!
The bulls are officially the most overated team in the east. Their offense consists of ben gordon, who is a great scorer, but he isnt iversion. I have seen too many games where he scores 26 pts in the 1st half and cant buy a shot in teh 2nd half. And its not his fault he is a great scorer but he cant carry the load himself.
They have a bunch of players on that team who cant shoot.
Also my prediction is that the knicks vs bulls will be a 4 vs 5 matchup in the playoffs. The knicks being the 4 after winning teh division. The bulls are a seriousely flawed team. I think they need to get Magloir from portland at teh very least they need some sort of low post presence, they struggle for points.
It's effort on defense and like I have been saying help defense and the willingness to intimidate in the paint.
That should be Curry's job since he is physically capable, but mentally I don't know if he has it. He has to understand that not ever game is his to score at will or be the go to guy, it's a team. He has other responsibilities, so when the scoring isn't there he has to have more emphasis on rebounding and playing D.
I also saw a lot of stagnation on offense.
But it's the defense and the big problem is Crawford. He just doesn't want to play defense. He doesn't ever help out as I see Frye, Lee, Jefferies, Q and Balkman do.
That's why Crawford is a bench player and should come off the bench for his instant offense. He is not a starter and is not strong enough to cover the bigger SG's in the league. Q is the 2 but has to lose a few pounds to get more quickness and flexibility.
