I think I like this team more then the Jordan teams. Obviously the Jordan teams were better but is there anyone on this team you can't love? It's all heart, sweat, blood, and tears and they are using it to win. Imagine how crazy Heat fans would be going if they beat a 100% healthy Bulls team without LeBron and Wade, because the Bulls just did that. Won't win the series but will make the Heat go through hell to earn it.

Even for those who don't like the NBA, this Bulls team is a treat to watch. Obviously the far inferior team, but man do they give it all they got. Playing through tons of injuries and illnesses and still giving more effort than any team out there. Thibs has done a great job preparing them and there's some great leadership from the players.

I have been posting about the Bulls ever since we've had these non-Hawks sports discussion threads on this forum, and all I've heard about was how the NBA has no parity (which is very true to an extent), it's all about the Heat, the Bulls can't win, etc., and I have to say that I'm glad some of you are coming around.

As SPT said, it's all heart, sweat, blood, and tears right now. I have moved on from the Rose thing. Let's just ride this thing out. They could lose the next four and drop the series in five, but Nate, Marco, Nazr, Butler, and all other depth or emerging players are the guys that got them to the point where they are now going back to Chicago with the series evened up in the worst possible scenario. I'm really just proud.

However, excitement must be contained. I remember a big double-digit victory over the Heat at the UC a few years ago in the ECF. The Bulls dropped four in a row. I was naive and thought the Bulls was waltz to the NBA Finals. That's not how it works.

There is some work to do, but I'm proud of the work they have put in, what they have accomplished, and am excited for what the future holds. I'm hoping it involves more gutsy victories down the line this year.

Exciting to see them win. Need to see another win to really think they have a chance but great effort.

I regret doubting them at times. Anything is possible with Thibs at the helm.

I'd love to see the media pressure directed toward the Heat with them heading to the UC for two after dropping the first two of the series. A man can dream.

It would be quite the narrative.

Because they're fans? I really don't get what you're asking in the slightest to be honest.

Awful coaching by Spoelstra, should have put Lebron on Nate, Wade on Bellineli, and Allen on Butler.

Winning ugly is the Bulls' forte. Ugly, sloppy games give the Bulls the advantage, and they are of the same value as winning pretty.

To be fair, I've actually liked watching the Bulls this post season and I hate the NBA.

Hypothetically, if the Bulls won the title, would you give Rose a ring? Would you allow him to hold the trophy? I know they will. I know Rose will be acting like he won the damn thing. I'm just curious because it got brought up the other night when I was with people that are much bigger Bulls fans than me and they didn't want him getting a ring or having anything to do with the team if they win without him. I tried explaining that even guys that never played but are under contract will get a ring and be a part of the whole thing. That pissed them off.

Yes, he would get a ring.

He gets hardware but gets no credit for helping "his" team win.

Not giving Rose a ring would be the end of his tenure as a Bull.

Reinsdorf gave secretaries and flight attendants World Series rings. I think that answers whether or not he'd give Rose a ring...

That was never the question. Would YOU give Rose a ring? Would you be doing it just to appease him or would you truly believe he deserved it.

I would give him one but personally, if I was Rose, I wouldn't accept it. I wouldn't want the thing. He seems like the kind of guy that would be dancing on stage and be the Mark Madsen of the whole thing but whatever.

I feel sad for him. It's like he has the mind of a child, so innocent. I always thought he was pretty dim but not in a typical way, it's more of a confusion to the world. He really needs someone to help him though everything and unfortunately he's not getting that help from anyone around him. It's just such a sad story. The end part of his rehab is to play in games and he just doesn't believe in that at all. He wants to just wake up one day and have it all be right but according to what I've read and heard about this injury, that is 100% impossible so until he changes his thoughts, he'll never play in an NBA basketball game again.

I don't think this question matters. If the Bulls get far enough this year for this question to become relevant, Rose will probably be back in the lineup. Just my opinion though.

He doesn't want to play in games until he's confident in his knee. Until then he's risking overcompensating for the injury and getting hurt again. People forget that this guy was basically injured for an entire season before the ACL tear.

He'll either gain the confidence back during the playoffs this year and return to game action (and if he thinks what he's doing now is the route to doing that, who are we to question him? It's his body and he knows it best), or he'll be back for the first game of next season.
