HEAT FANS COME OUT AND PLAY!
I'm a Bulls fan...but we swept the Heat last season, and look what happened in the playoffs.
I hope you two are right..
I'm just sayin.
Not that Boozer a huge step up, LoL.
But also consider we didn't have Rose or Rip the last time we beat this Heat team.
We didn't have Rose or Noah the 4th quarter tonight and we held our ground just fine.
If we can accompolish what we have against the Heat without our full puzzle in place, just imagine the upside and possibilities.
I say the Bulls at this point are quite simply the better TEAM....
Make this thread when the Bulls win the playoff series(Which I already said I wouldn't be surprised by).
It's a good win. That's it.
Microcosm of why it's tough to pick the Bulls over the Heat in a 7 game series:
Lebron nails a 3 pointer last night in crunch time to take the lead and when they show the replay Boozer and Noah are sitting on the bench.
When a team is consistently sitting two of it's top 4 players in big moments it becomes tougher to see them taking down a team with 3 Top 10-20 players in the NBA
Again regular season=/=playoffs.
Get this through your skull.
Bbbbut but but what about the playoffs last year?
What about 2 years agao?
What about 15 years ago?
Bbbbbbbbbbut but but but NOTHING!!!!!!
What about this year?
Fuck last year that you keep repeating over and over again.
Next season are you going to make posts screaming,"but what about the playoffs 2 years ago"??
My point is that the Heat, the team you think is better, the team with the two "superior superstars" both had chances to beat our "inferior" team and didn't. But CJ Watson, our backup point guard, did. Huge moment for him, another shitty moment for the Heat, who're playing .500 ball leading up to the postseason. That's my "point." They're backing their way into the playoffs. They were on a tear last season and made it to the Finals. As you've already addressed, this is a crazy season, I don't think it'll be quite as easy.And Wade could have hit the game winner but didn't.
Disagree 100%. That depth is always going to help us in the regular season. You know what that is, right? That part of the season where you have to consistently win in order to get to the post-season? Or did you forget about that training for your half-marathon last night?Which I would argue is a LARGE part of the Bulls problem long term.
A flukey NBA season?
So how in the world is this win a "statement" win if the Bulls nearly lost the game twice?
It's a nice regular season NBA win over a very good team by another very good team.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
CJ Watson hits a 3 and it becomes a statement win. CJ misses a three and it's "who cares we didn't have Rose/Rose playing well". You'd rationalize this either way to make yourself feel better.
You again are too stupid to understand the bigger picture and long term issues.
