Basically, they will have to ((once again)) go through the Heat.


The Bulls are still behind the Nets, Cavs and Heat next year.

The Pistons still have McDyess and Davis at center, plus Cato is a free agent who can be resigned.

Sorry but Ben Wallace is not that much of a difference maker.

agree with Kingwillball


Nets are still a better team than the Bulls.



ask the champs Miami Heat, they said they hated to play the Nets perimeter players and the only reason they won was because Riley set up the drugs in Cliff's bag to deplete the already nonexistent bench with Brick Vaughn...


but they hate playing the starters... and so do the Bulls

The Pistons could make a trade for Danny Fortson and loss absolutely nothing in the win column

That's why they only won 1 game? And the bulls 2 against the Heat? Get the hell out of here man......

yeah I don't think the Nets will top the Bulls next season. The Nets win the starting lineup battle, but the Bulls are much deeper as far as I'm concerned, even with the addition of Marcus and Boone

Bulls, whether they trade Chandler for DEPTH, trade for a SUPERSTAR in KG, or stay with their same DEFENSIVE POWERHOUSE team, will be able to beat the Nets.

The Bulls are deeper than the Nets. They will outlast them in a playoff series. And, T=the Nets will have a hard time scoring.

If this is their lineup:

Ben/Chandler
TT/Mike Sweetney
Nocioni/Deng
Gordon/Europe dude
Hinrich/Duhon

that will beat the Nets and Cavs. I am sorry. That is the definition of a complete team.

Wow. The Pistons are now much much much less intimidating... Way to lose the heart and soul of your team.

Dont get ahead of yourself. By no means will teams have a problem holding down Ben to single digits in the point per column. Its who will be able to score on Ben that should be asked.

That Bulls team is not, in my opinion, clearly better than the Nets, Pistons, and especially the Cavs. It has good players, depth, and defense, but it's not as complete as some seem to believe. The frontcourt is more or less devoid of offense. I don't think Tyrus Thomas will start right away, either. The Bulls will rely on Hinrich, Gordon, Nocioni, and Deng for offense, and only Gordon and Hinrich can be counted on to produce every time on offense. This past playoffs, it was not their lack of defense that did them in, rather it was their offense. That hasn't changed, and the current style of officiating favors offense.

The Cavs have the backcourt to go up against the Bulls (provided Hughes is healthy), and their big guys should be decent at least. They'll be deep as well, and I think Lebron gives them the edge. The Pistons and Nets will both have a significantly better 1-3 than the Bulls, and each has a good player in the frontcourt. These teams both have depth problems, but I think the overwhelming talent advantage at the guard positions is enough to at least make them equal if not superior to the Bulls at this time.
