It was just one line by Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News, but could the Bulls really expect Derrick Rose back for the playoffs...
LeBron James dominated game seven of the NBA finals to look the part of super-duper-star helping to cement his legacy as an all-time great rather than a guy who chokes in the clutch, and it's amazing just how tenuous that moment was...
The Chicago Bulls have fought hard in these playoffs. It's easy to forget that when seeing them crushed by a vastly, vastly superior team. However, it was less than two weeks ago that they send the Nets pack on pure will power and took game one against Miami for the same reason...
Everything went right for Chicago twice, the result? A narrow victory and a somewhat less narrow loss. Everything went about as expected twice and the result? Two Heat blow outs...
In the end, the Bulls slowed Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on Friday. They didn't give up a layup line or a ton of points inside the paint. They forced Norris Cole to beat them from the perimeter and Chris Bosh to knock down mid-range jumpers. Honestly, that's probably about as much as you can ask for...
Deng is finally out of the hospital, but he's lost 15lbs and is still far too weak to play. Hinrich had a second MRI on his bruised calf that showed the muscle damage he sustained hasn't improved any. In short, don't expect either player to suit up in this series though they're both listed as day to day and doubtful for tonight...
The Bulls became a great story by taking game one with a depleted roster and Nate Robinson outplaying LeBron James. Many things went right for Chicago in game one, including the Heat missing many wide open corner threes taken by quality three point shooters. Chicago will have to hope to improve on the formula that brought them a game one victory, because the Heat are likely to bring it tonight...
Watching Nate Robinson in the playoffs lots of thoughts enter my mind. Would the Bulls really be better off if Derrick Rose came back right now? Can the Bulls afford to keep Nate next year? Will they try? How much money has Nate made for himself with this playoff series...
The Bulls reward for winning game seven? One day off, and a game one match against the well rested Miami Heat in Miami. No one ever said it'd be easy...
