More like Durant or Giannis this time around.
I know, I was joking.

I've been saying for awhile the Bulls prob lose to Nets or Bucks.

At least soon the Bulls will play the Bucks, so we can get a taste of what that matchup looks like.

Again, I'll refer back to 2011.

That said, I do think Billy D will adjust in the playoffs a lot better adjusting to a 7 game series than what Thibs did in 2011.

Although, I can see how a team like the Raptors, Sixers, and Heat can be very tough matchups in the second round.

Yeah…

I thought our defense would be a lot worse. I thought we’d be punished inside and on the perimeter.

I think Covid chaos has protected us a bit and depth has made more value than the void at PF has cost us.

I’m sure they have played well enough to attract a veteran trade or late season buy-out.

How impossible is a Kevin love rental…like a slow move to L.A….we keep him for 2022 playoffs.

Yeah, thibs wasn’t the biggest adjuster. His lineups and rotations were pretty much etched in stone and he did not mix/match. Although, could have been more of an indictment on the talent at that time.

This Bulls team differs a lot though because I think they’re deeper top to bottom. The Bulls really had no offense or play makers outside of Rose. Deng/Noah were both limited offensively. Noah was obviously a great passer, and Deng a decent slasher and midrange shooter, but not ideal recipe in the playoffs. Especially against a stacked Heat team.

Bulls have multiple defense breakers and guy s who can get their own points. Specifically, Zach, Demar, Vuc, and Coby. Vuc is better when assisted, but he can still get points in the paint when needed. That’s 4 guys vs 1 compared to the 2010-11 team.

This team also has highly efficient scorers like Lonzo and two way players like Ayo/Caruso. DJJ is highly efficient as well.

That 2010-11 team were better defensively, but it was also a much different game back then. This team is top 10 D when healthy and much, much more potent offensively than the 2010 team.
