Recommended Posts

This is a fun team to watch. They do all the little things and scrap like crazy. It was grteat to see them beat Toronto last night and clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 98.

They seem to be a nice reflection of their coach. Skiles was as scrappy as they come during his playing days.

 

Note: I think he may still hold the NBA record for assists in a game (something like 31 or 32)

Very happy for that team. As a KU fan it is nice to see Hinrich have such an impact on that team.

Welcome back to the playoffs. Enjoy your stay. Please remember to vacate the area after playing Miami or Detroit.

Maybe against Miami, but the Bulls have played the Pistons tough this year. I believe they have beat them a few times this year.

Great job by Skiles.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but other than adding Gordon isn't this basically the same personnel as last year?

They also added Luol Deng out of Duke. I haven't had the chances to follow the Bulls this year as much as last since I didn't get the NBA package this year.

 

Regarding Chandler and Curry, I had heard a few trade rumors earlier in the season about Chandler, not sure if they will still look to make a move prior to the draft or not or if thy will hang on to him.

 

Now if the Warriors could manage to keep all of their players heading into next season and maintain the way they are playing right now I will be a very happy person.

Yeah, the Fisher signing looks real bad now that htye added Baron Davis. With Foyle (I forget the actualt cap numbers offhand), they at least have a guy that is a very consistent shot blocker and defensive presence, but not much offensively.

 

But, on the plus side, they have Rishardson and Murphy locked up long term, Fisher provides great depth at either guard position, Pietrus is coming on and will likely flourish for a different team now that his rookie contract is about up and I have a feeling Dunleavy will be traded this offseason.

 

I figure they either deal Dunleavy and picks for a serviceable center and draft small forward this year, or they move picks and players to move up and go after a legit center in the draft. Biedrins is just too far away from being reliable enough to depend on in the middle.

 

Oh well... I've lasted 12 years without playoffs... but they are coming.....

richardson is awesome, and b. davis is when he's healthy and playing hard. pietrus is turning into a nice player. it'll be interesting to see if they can make a run at the playoffs next year.

 

they're gonna get their asses handed to them tonight, though :D

Anything to help get more shots at an earlier pick :-)

 

Though I am very happy how they have been playingover the last few weeks.. Davis has really helped tem a lot... something like 14-8 since he arrived I believe was the stat I heard.

for the bulls they also added A. Davis, Chris Duhon, and Andres Nocioni (sp?). Davis and Duhon are starters and Nocioni is a spot starter. So the roster has changed.

everything Paxson (GM) has said indicates they will re-sign both of them. they're both restricted free agents so the Bulls have the opportunity to match any offers they get.

the bulls lost last night in OT. a mental breakdown by Davis and a not needed pass by Gordan screwed them over as they were leading by 6 with 2 remaining. you can still see the immaturity within the team.

yeah, they're at the bottom of the league as far as turnovers/game, but they play some tough D to make up for 'em.

And they still split the series with the World Champs this season.

it's a huge blow to lose curry for the rest of the year. i was looking forward to them making some noise in the playoffs.

I'd like to send an apology now to all Wizard fans for your early departure from the first round of the playoffs. You can start making your tee times now Wizards.

its nice to see the bulls doing well. i don't keep up with basketball much but this is a pleasant surprise. all the so called eggspurts are on the wizard bandwagon in this series. mostly due to the injuries. i think the bulls have a good chance of advancing though. time to check the series price at the sportsbook.....lol.

As a warriors fan, part of me is pulling for the Wizards to see what could have been (Arenas, Hughes and Jamison all ex-Warriors), but the Bulls have an amazing nucleus of young players, but I fear their lack of playoff experience will hurt them.

 

Should be a good series.
