Every year, Bulls fans look forward to the off-season, waiting for the big move to put them over the top. Waiting for management to do something, anything, to get better than the Miami Heat. After all, we'd better answer Reggie Rose's call and get some talent in here or perhaps Derrick Rose won't play again. Every year the Bulls make some minor moves on the bench and appear to come back worse...
So I was reading some random piece about how the Heat won't win 72 games this year, to which I thought, of course they won't. They're not a regular season team. However, what if Miami was coached by Tom Thibodeau? What if they had a coach that would push them in the regular season...
So the Miami Heat came to terms with Greg Oden in a deal that means nothing or everything. The thing is Greg Oden has been in the league for five seasons, but he's played in a grand total of 82 [one season's worth] of games with the most recent ones coming three seasons ago...
It might be a perfect storm for Chicago and Derrick Rose. The Bulls will reportedly open the season in Miami on ring night against the defending champion Miami Heat...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
