Split the season series. If it wasn't for the injuries Bulls were on their way to being the 5th and at least the 6th seed.
Even as the 5th or 6th seed this team has too many lapses that don't help win playoff series. Though D. Rose superstar bud is beginning to blossom they just don't have enough to put a team away like the Cleveland LeBrons. They may win one or maybe two games, but this isn't a beat-up, old Celtics team they are playing. Don't let the end of the season fool you, the LeBrons will at the least make it to the 2nd round.
With Shaq Big Z and Jamison aren't they an old beat up Celtics team. Lebron is all talk first it was the dunk contest, where was he? Then it's the scoring title, how about you prove it instead of sitting out the last 4 games? Let's not forget walking off the court pouting last year as he lost to the Magic. And now he warns Noah and the Bulls that they are going to face a whole new monster on Saturday. It seems like Lebron talks he chokes and all these big moves to match up with the Magic might not help against a young team who will run and has nothing to lose. Let's Shock the World
I don't disagree with your thought that LeBron might choke (emphasis on might), as he just routinely does in the playoffs.Swept in his only Finals appearance, lost to Orlando last year...
I mean, are we really supposed to bank on a 37 year old Shaq and 33-year old Jamison to make this team a title winner?
They have a good team, though. And despite some aging veterans, they DO have the recipe for a return to the Finals. I think it's more of a "hope" on my end that Orlando gets back there and finished the job, but how does Cleveland take the number one seed and home-court and fail for the second straight season? Especially with added scoring and defense with Shaq and Jamison.
On paper, there is no way they lose. Just no way. I mean, they won't lost to the Bulls. That's easily said. But can they really handle the Magic and the three-point game? I'm crossing my fingers that they can't, but the NBA wants this Kobe vs LeBron game even more than they wanted Celtics vs Lakers two years ago.
What the NBA wants, the NBA gets.
Did anyone think the Bulls would have swept Dwade, Shaq and the Heat out of the playoffs? How about the Warriors beating the Mavs? It is time for Lebron to go down so maybe the talk of the greatest can end or at least take a backseat for a while. He hasn't won anything and with the Cavs bowing to him and letting him run things he never will
