You might as well cut the Agenda, it won't work. Nobody cares about who or what is needed right now. Bulls are fighting with what's available, and that's the end of it.
Uhh, yeah. Of course. Who are you arguing with? I mean, what you're saying is pretty undeniable, but who said otherwise in the first place? Yes, they're fighting with what's available. Who said they weren't? What's to possibly disagree with? What am I missing?
and yet so many people on here were saying Thibs was exposed.
Same ones screaming after the fact about Rose still being on the floor and Noah coming back on the floor...then yelling "YAY TAJ!" when he was out there on a bum ankle with 2:00 to go and a huge lead.
Defense is effort, and their effort wasn't there after Rose got hurt. Last night they stopped easy transition baskets by Philly and won all the hustle plays. Their two old pros provided the scoring they needed.
The knowledge of basketball for so many around here extends as far as the most recent games final score.
LBJ impact on Heat >>>>>> Rose impact on CHI
Bosh Impact on Heat>> Noah impact on Chi
That's not what my point is, take 2 of any team's best players away, have it's other top 3 player banged up and see how far that team goes. I dare you to name a team out there, however deep they are and do what happened to Chicago and tell me they won't struggle. You already conceding Miami wouldn't do to well because you say LBJ and Bosh are more important to the Heat than Rose/Noah to the Bulls (which is utter bullshit, they are the most important players along with Deng.
Take Durant and Ibaka out and have Westbrook play with one hand, ain't going far.
Take Bryant and Gasol out and have Bynum play with one hand, same thing...
Take Parker and Duncan out and have Manu play with one hand, ^^^
Take Rondo and Garnett out and have Pierce play with one hand, hopefully you now get the picture.
Look, us Bulls fans aren't whining and crying about our injuries, it happens, but if you can't see how a healthy team and an injured team will perform way differently, then you sir are basketball retarded.
BTW, two of our better role players are out there still giving it a go, Taj playing on one leg and CJ dealing with a bum elbow.
Bulls would be done with Philly if everyone was playing, you know that, stop trolling.
