Bulls Beat #324 - Spurs win!

Bulls Beat #324 - Spurs win!
I discuss the Spurs NBA Finals victory and how it will reshape the off-season of the NBA as well as set a new bar for the Bulls...

Spurs show the blueprint on how to beat the Heat

Spurs show the blueprint on how to beat the Heat
It's easy, just be damn good on both ends of the floor. While many will discuss how unselfish the Spurs are. How they pass the ball relentlessly give up the good shot to get the great shot, their offense really comes down to one thing...

LeBron cements legacy with second chance

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...

Spurs lose every battle except field goal percentage in blow out win

Fewer turnovers, more offensive rebounds, more assists, and despite Danny Green's magic, the Heat even hit more threes at a higher percentage. The Spurs aren't supposed to overcome a game where Miami gets 16 extra shots up and shoots 47.8% from the three point line, but they did by simply being unstoppable on offense...

Big three finally show up to the party

It took four games, but we finally saw Miami play like.... Miami. LeBron, Wade, and Bosh all connected for big nights. There was no more talk about facilitating, no more talk about balky knees, and no more excuses. The star players finally realized that they're star players, and played like it. The result? San Antonio looked like a second class team in comparison...

Danny Green and Gary Neal crush the Heat as big three quiet once again

The big three were quiet once again, which big three? Take your pick. The last two games have belonged to the role players as the stars have been silent on both sides. However, the pressure really only mounts on LeBron James, who's viewed as the best player in the NBA. Would Michael Jordan ever average under 17 points a game through three finals games...

Heat's cast lift the big three

LeBron James still fell far short of his typical play, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh played okay, but certainly don't look like stars, but the Miami cast came through big time to lift the Heat to victory...

LeBron James is right, he's reverted to his Cleveland days

You remember the ones where he had the best team in the league and then quit on them against the Boston Celtics? Yeah, LeBron had a triple double. Yep, Wade and Bosh were both pretty pedestrian again. However, make no mistake, LeBron James lost this game for the Heat...

Throw Rip Hamilton from the train

Throw Rip Hamilton from the train
So the Spurs game was fun for about a half when the Bulls offense somehow found it's rhythm behind the three point line, but the Spurs adjusted, Chicago slumped, and it ended in a rout. One thing became crystal clear from the game though, we need to throw Rip Hamilton from the train, hope he stays hurt, tell him to stay at home, or whatever else it takes to force Tom Thibodeau to start Marco Belinelli...

Could the Bulls be up for the challenge against the Spurs?

The Spurs are one of the league's elite teams. They crushed Chicago from the three point line in their last matchup despite playing without Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker. The Bulls will square off against the Spurs on the road while Parker misses the game again...
