  • Just listening to this podcast further assures me that this Bulls team was thrown under the bus this year because of the Rose injury, and thrown on top of that all of the other injuries to the other players this year. I know injuries are part of the game, but the Bulls over the last 3 to 4 yrs. has had beyond their fair share. And the league need to just give the championship to the Heat barring any major injuries to Wade and especially LeBron. Won't be an interesting playoffs at all this year. Here's to waiting on 2014-15 season, Mirotic, if he decides to come to the Bulls by then, and the big free agency plan...LOL...

    Playoffs will be interesting. The Knicks and celtics play heat very well. I'm sure they won't be blowing those teams out in four games if they happen to face them in playoffs. Clippers and lakers would be interesting so would nuggets thunder. I'm not counting bulls out if they can get fully healthy come playoff time.

  • In reply to bullzfan:

    The West will be interesting, the East won't be. When everybody (fans, local media, national media) agree the Bulls+Rose have the best shot of challenging the Heat, you know the Heat has a free lane (pun intended) to the Finals.

    It really comes down to if any West team can beat the Heat. All these run-and-gun uptempo offensive teams (OKC, DEN, LAC) stand no chance against MIA. MIA plays the same way, except they play elite defense.

    I hope OKC loses before the Finals because they'll get embarrassed again. I'm rooting for the Spurs as I see them with the best shot of beating the Heat.

  • In reply to YouBlewwIt:

    Yeah totally agree, the Spurs have the best shot at beating the Heat if they can make it out of the west. And my mistake in saying the playoffs wont be interesting cause the west will be very entertaining with the way the Nuggets are playing going down the stretch heading to the playoffs.

  • In reply to YouBlewwIt:

    I agree. The West playoffs will be awesome, the East playoffs will stink. I guess you could get an interesting series in the East, but you know it will be irrelevant because Miami will crush the winners anyway.

    I also agree the Spurs have the best shot at beating Miami because they can play D and have the best offensive scheme.

  • In reply to bullzfan:

    I'd bet the Heat don't have to play the Knicks or Celtics and would annihilate either team if they did.

  • Is it me or has Rose attitude of playing with the Bulls have turned sour?

    Not for this season, but even for next season...........saw the last couple of interviews, and he did not seem positive of playing at all.

  • In reply to CubsTalk:

    Yeah, with the same expressionless demeanor and his 'I'm good man' quotes, forget next season, t's really easy to tell he doesn't want to play with this team in 2014 season either.

  • In reply to YouBlewwIt:

    Rose wants to win and I'm sure he sees how this team was partially torn apart with no real fix in sight as long as he has a bazeball loving owner running things. Reggie Rose comments are well on point and Derrick Rose I'm sure agrees with everything that he said, he just has to keep him comments about the team PC

  • In reply to Reese1:

    And i mean who can blame him if he doesn't want to play for the Bulls anymore, he's in a top 3 market in the league and he has to look at teams like Miami, NY, both L.A. teams add players around their stars as well as other teams.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Or shall i say a better supporting cast of players around their star player. Rose doesn't have that anymore, maybe 2 to 3 at best.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Speaking of supporting cast, who on this blog was calling the last month or two for Bulls to add Kenyon Martin to the Bulls roster?

    Whoever it was is a better talent evaluator than GarPaxDorf who have instead given us Lou Amundson and Malcolm Thomas.

  • In reply to Edward:

    I would have loved K-Mart too, but Kenyon Martin specifically wanted to go to the Knicks. You can't make a guy want to come here.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Are you saying Kenyon Martin intentionally sat out 70% of the season, turning down offers from other teams, solely to play with the Knicks at the end of the season? That is not the case.

    Martin previously told Yahoo! Sports he was open to signing a contract with any NBA team for any team role. "If someone calls me tomorrow, I don't care who it is, whether it's losing or winning at this point," Martin said. "If someone calls me tomorrow and wants me to come in, I'm going.”

    Did the Bulls make an offer for K-Mart? Were they turned won? I don’t think that is accurate.

  • In reply to Edward:

    My fault, I was thinking it was last year and he was signed in China and came to the Knicks after his contract was up.

  • In reply to CubsTalk:

    I don't think you can take much from his interviews. He's being asked the same stuff over and over again and doesn't really have an answer. At some point, I'm sure it's just frustrating.

  • You can't go by expressions its always the same. Interviews always boring with the way he speaks. Monotone.
