I just hope the Bulls can put it together this year in time to put up a good series against the Heat if they can make it far enough.

Last years competition was utterly pathetic in the East. The Heat were lucky Rose went down because it enabled them to cruise to the finals. Don't care about the Pacers series, that team wasn't gonna beat Miami, the Bulls shit on the Pacers too.

Meanwhile the Thunder had to go through a much more competitive West and the fatigue it took showed against Miami.

They knew it, we knew it, Heat fans knew it and even the Heat were worried about it.

When the Bulls went down, they had a sigh of relief and Heat trolls got very cocky right after. THey were worried about the Bulls. Heat title is tainted by not faces the best competition.

Just so i can say this....dont want to speak for all the Bulls fans here..


I personally felt great about the Bulls chances to beat the Heat last year but by no means did i see it as anything close to resembling a for sure thing.

I just happen to truly believe the Bulls were the Heat's biggest competition regardless of conference.

The Thunder had never taken on the Heat in a playoff series and were too young and inexperienced. The "moment" aka being in the finals....ate them alive.

The Bulls know all about this as they blew out the Heat by 20 in the ECF opener and then got eaten alive in a way in 4 straight games despite the Bulls having a chance to win every game they lost.

You simply cannot put a price on losing on the biggest of stages in the NBA. It gives teams and players a chance to learn more about themselves than anytime previously in their careers. Its as defining as winning can be.

Just hanging in there supporting our squad in these still tough times.

Like Derrick said, the injury is truly a blessing for many different reasons.

It's all about how you embrace the injury, the timing of the injury, and anything else that goes with all of this.

The Bulls are going to be the last team anyone wants to face in the East because of their uncertain, but yet intimidating ceiling of potential w/ Rose's possible return.

They had the best shot at it. Was it certain? No. But they had them dead to rights and the Heat knew it.

You mean w/out Rose and Noah? seeing as Noah missed 2 1/2 games that series when he turned the shit out of his ankle.


Nice try though
