Maybe the Bulls just aren't good enough

We've heard a bunch of explanations about why the Chicago Bulls' NBA season has, well, tanked. They're not trying hard enough. They're not communicating. They're playing selfish for their own stats, and not as a team. It's the coach's fault. It's management's fault.

Not often heard is the possibility is that the Bulls just are good enough. Perhaps not even good enough to make it to the playoffs--a severe disappointment  especially since we had been prepped to believe that the could be an NBA champion.

If they're dogging it, shame on them. It's hard for any wage slaves (almost all of us) to understand how someone who has reached the pinnacle, achieved his childhood dream and is getting paid a king's ransom could be dogging it. Maybe they are, but watching them play the thought occurs to me that maybe they're just not all that good. At least not as good as they once looked on paper.

Maybe Bulls fans should just get used to the idea. But if it were me on the team, someone saying I'm not good enough would be all the motivation I needed to prove them wrong. Do the Bulls feel this way?
