I think Chicago is gonna make the ECF this year. At least. They don't have enough scorers to win a title, though. Screwed up pretty badly in the draft.

So they're going to make it past Miami, Detroit, and Cleveland?

Man, I don't know.

They're better than Detroit. You all gonna be surprised to see just how much Ben meant to that team. He's the anchor that made everything happen. Cleveland is just too poorly put together to be a serious contender. Miami? Miami will be the team that sends them home. If they lose to anyone it's Miami. I believe that the Bulls can take any other team in the league. If Haslem and Posey can give Dirk fits, Nocioni will straight send him home crying.

I just really believe in Ben Wallace. He's got a lot to prove, too, he won't be mediocre like he was last year. And he's got a coach that shares his vision unlike last year.

Wade has played great in all the exhibition games. He had a bad opening game against Puerto Rico. Hell, it really wasn't that bad. 4/10 shooting is not as awful as you make it seem.

Do you Kobe nutlickers have to take a jab at Lebron or Wade every chance you get?

Not to try and give recognition to JPR or anything, but the Bulls will be much better in the playoffs than they will be in the regular season, because of that defense. Cleveland, New Jersey and Miami might get better records, but Chicago can beat them all.

Wrong, if there's a contender they do beat, it's Miami. Miami always has trouble against Chicago, and that was with Tyson Chandler as their best big man. Now they have two guys who are way better than Chandler. The big 3 in the West should be able to beat them though. And no Houston is not anywhere near that group, because they always flame out, and I just can't take them seriously anymore.

As for China, this was not a test at all for the US because China has the backcourt of a crappy WAC team. Yao can't do much when he doesn't even have the ball. I'm surprised China didn't lose by 40+.

To say that nobody wants to see the Rockets on national tv is just ignorant... What about all of China? I'd say that's a pretty good market.
