Heat Burned The Bulls Last Night
The writing is on the wall whether we want to read it or not. The Chicago Bulls are not doing well in the heat. Last night in a must win game they came up short in overtime. The team with the best record in the NBA, the team with the MVP, the team with the coach of the year, and the team with the best record in the NBA is on its last leg and could be done by tomorrow night.
History is not on their side. They cannot and will not come back from 3-1 to win. That just goes to show that if you don’t have anything left in the tank for the post season, then you’re going down and out regardless of your regular season record.
Derek Rose is clearly burnt out. He carried the Chicago Bulls through the regular season and now he is drained. This is one “Rose” that’s fading fast. Better luck next year. As much as we did not want to see the Heat win – the writing is on the wall. No need to watch anymore. Derek Rose is great but he is not greater than Jordan. There is no one greater. Let’s give Lebron James his due. We don’t like how he jilted Cleveland Cavaliers with “The Decision,” but he is the best player in the NBA. Is that how you feel? If not, please leave your comments.

Chicago Bulls Ready For Bull Run
The NBA 2011 season is drawing to a close and the teams that are left are exciting to watch, but apart from Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Derek Rose and Carlos Boozer, everybody else seems to be from Cheers, “Nobody knows their names.” If I watch any more games here on, it is because I am a sports fan. Other than that, I am not interested. I can guess many people are like that too. I was speaking with a friend recently and he said he doesn’t follow it anymore. He has more interest in baseball now. What are your thoughts on the conference finals?
It would be safe to say that the Heat vs Bulls conference finals is what most sports fan predicted and wanted to see. I believe the NBA champions will come from the east. For all the Heat haters, you better root for the Bulls. It’s not the Jordan Bulls, but the Bulls led by Derek Rose is a formidable team. I think in this series we are going to see Lebron James play like he’s out of his mind because he wants this one. Winning this championship after the debacle of “The Decision” will bring satisfaction to him and silence his critics. I only saw D. Rose play a few games and he is great, but this series is a high stakes series and is even more climatic than the finals, because it’s either the Heat gets “gored” by the Bulls or the Bulls succumb to Heatstroke.
Whatever happens – this is where the NBA will up their ratings. I much as I don’t want to see the heat win, I predict Heat in a sweep as Bulls succumb to heatstroke.
How many people believe that the Knicks would get swept when the NBA 2011 playoffs started. Nobody! But the reality has set in and while the Knicks were competitive in the first two games away from home, they came home and lost both games by double digits. Well, it’s over now!
Are the Boston Celtics the team to beat in this NBA championship? Who is coming out of the Eastern conference, Boston Celtics or Chicago Bulls? Is Denver Nuggets going to win a game or be swept also? Please send your comments especially if you were against the trade for Carmelo Anthony. The Knicks are the first team to get eliminated from the NBA 2011 playoffs. Will the Celtics beat the Miami Heat in round two? Please comment
The NBA playoffs are in full swing and so far, apart from Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs, and Los Angeles Lakers, the top seeded teams are winning, but they are not convincing. Again, Indiana Pacers have been able to withstand the “Bull run,” so far, and are showing they belong in the playoffs. I did not see much of them during the regular season, so I am really surprised to see how well they are playing Chicago. It is just a pity they did not win game one. It seems quite a daunting task for them to upset the Bulls, but they should be able to win even one game.
The Chicago Bulls are relying on one player an dif he has an off night they are done. So, looking at them going to the finals will be very challenging. They cannot beat the Miami Heat nor the Boston Celtics with one player. This is the playoffs and everybody ought to step up. Had it been any other team, the Bulls would be down 0-2 right now. Rose is blooming but it’s time for Boozer and the others to come to play and help Rose. If rose gets worn out from the first round, what chances do they have when they get to the second round? I am not cheering for the Bulls, except if the Celtics cannot make it over the Heat, I see them beating the Heat.
Indiana Pacers have no reason to hang their heads. They just need to try and win one game. Don’t focus on winning the series against the Bulls, just try to win one while they only have one Chicago Bull do to deal with. They don’t want a real bull run an dnow is the time to get that one win. There are other teams who should be thinking the same. The New York Knicks just need to win tonight. Win tonight an dcome to MSG with the series tied and take it from there.
I am not concerned about Chauncy Billups being out, because it is clear if the Knicks play at Celtics Speed they will always come up short. They need Thomas to run the point and pick up the pace. Score 120 if you can or else you will be going out in four games and with loses of 6 points or less in each game. I am not a Knicks fan, but I love what’s going on with the Knicks. I like it that Amare and Carmelo were not afraid to come to New York and play their hearts out. Even if you are not a Knicks fan you have to love Carmelo and Amare just because you are a New Yorker.
