That's one thing about that league is you'll see plenty of future stars on their way up.

When I lived in Arizona I'd go to Arizona Fall League games all the time. It was great. $5 a ticket, sit where you want, see future stars before they're stars. Plus, you couldn't beat watching baseball outside in November.

You would be correct. It's way to much of a committment to get season tickets. I'm 15-20 minutes away and can go on a moment's notice for dirt cheap. The summer got more entertaining.

I ordered the below shirts off the Lids website. They were picked up today. I got all four shirts for $15 total.



They showed up just in time for this series to get turned around.

Stacey King makes watching a fairly dull team (sans Rose) still be entertaining.

Not the first time he has bitten someone either. Racial abuse, diving, cheating, biting. The guy has talent but it a complete and total moron/A-hole. He brings a bad name to Liverpool who have had to cover for him, he isn't worth keeping around because it will only get worse.

Good first half. Of course C.J. Watson is playing great now for Brooklyn after playing like crap in every game last postseason for the Bulls.

I just went on a rant about the same thing.

That one is certainly horrible, something about how he did it during play this time makes it crazier to me, though.

I love Suarez but there's no defending what he did, guy has anger issues. I'm guessing 10 games which sucks. He cleaned up so much of his diving stuff this year and then he does this....

As I expected.

If the Bulls show up with effort and intensity, they are a clearly better team than Brooklyn.

There is no doubt about that. Wins are extremely welcome the next couple games so we can afford to blow Game 5 in Brooklyn and still get a shot to close it out at home.

That'd be great. My prediction was Bulls in 6 before the series started.

Noah looked much better tonight.

It won't happen but........

Imagine if the Bulls win this series and Rose comes back for the Miami series and plays great and helps the Bulls eliminate the Heat.

How the haters would have to run and hide in the same hole Sadam hid in from the storm of crap coming their way.

Won't happen, but an awesome what if.

I don't want Rose back this year.

Aren't the series for the NBA 2-3-2? That's why the lower seed almost has an advantage if you ask me. Game 6 would be in Brooklyn, or am I mistaken? That's how it was in the Heat/Thunder series last year.

Under 200 losses. That's incredibly hard to do.

I became a hater once I found out he would not return in the regular season.

If he does return next round, I will cheer him on, but I don't think that would be the first game he could have played in. The more I see Noah wincing in pain on the floor, the more ridiculous I feel the situation is. I'm more of a doubter and just a dissapointed fan. I have been a supporter of the theory he wanted to wait and see if the team was good enough around him to get out of a playoff round before returning.

The thing is though that they both look like 100 loss teams

I'm curious to see what happens with Sveum if the team finishes worse than last season. I doubt he would get fired, but Theo may not be happy with the progression.

He's safe for at least 1 more year.
