Default Prediction: Bulls will Struggle at the Beginning of the Season

Okay, as some of you may know, the circus comes to Chicago at the beginning of every season and the Bulls have to play an insane road trip that makes them look mediocre as hell.

Then the media runs out in full force and blasts them for being such a letdown.

Then their schedule evens out and they win about 50 games and that's that.

So... if we all could... not jump to conclusions after 25 games regarding the Bulls.

I hope this was all worth a thread, because it will be fun watching people flip out yet again, for no real reason.

But, 25 games is a part of the season, and you still have to play 41 road games in a season, so it isn't much of an excuse. And most likely, when they start going on a run late in the season, everyone will be hopping on the bandwagon once again.

No order.

I'm not talking excuses.

I'm talking history repeating itself.

It's amazing how people can so consistently ignore information that's been there for years and continues to prove certain trends to be true.

I know.. and it will happen again when the Bulls are about 11W-12L this season.

Can't wait!

Well, the reason why Bulls was struggling during the beginning of last season is that they had to play much more road games than home games. Besides, the team was still exploiting for new ways to play with the arrival of Ben Wallace. I think they have the ability to win much more at the beginning of this season and finish the regular season with more than 50 wins, if they ain't bothered by disastrous injuries.

Bulls should do better this season in the beginning because they have a more balanced team right now. Actually several of the games they lost in last years road trip were by 3 points or less. Hopefully they'll find out how to finish off those games this time around. My prediction for wins this season for the Bulls is 54.
