I'll say the Bulls win this series in five, the next one in six, and they don't go down easy (if at all) in the ECF against Miami. Having Deng healthy for Miami is huge. You can't stop LeBron, but you can somewhat limited. I would LOVE to have to see Bosh elevate his game to a high level. He's a joke. Wade and LeBron will have a big ECF, but I'm not sold on Bosh.

Peavy dealt again. If he keeps this up you will get a solid prospect for him at the deadline.

Yeah, he's been a monster. 1.67 ERA, 33Ks and only 5 walks on the year.

Thib messed up, but he was probably trying to get Rose playoff ready since his game has been off.

Whatever you may think of to back up Thibodeau, there is no excuse for having arguably the best player in the NBA out on the floor in the final seconds of an all-out blowout win. I understand why he may use the "logic" of playing 60 straight minutes, tip-off to buzzer, but still, that "logic" is flawed.

Philly had narrowed the lead down... it is ridiculous to blame Thibodeau for a fluke injury like that. Blame bad luck if you want - that's at least more reasonable.

Bosh seems to light up Chicago all the time. He was great against them last year in the ECF.

Who cares about a lot of nights? He shows up in the playoffs, and that's all that matters.

It's the NBA, most of the league isn't trying much of the season. They know the regular season is a joke just as much as the fans do.

With as fragile as Rose is it would've been just as likely that he would've torn his ACL walking to the locker room anyway. Might as well get as much out of him as you can while he's healthy. It's a shame that he's the best player this town has seen since Jordan and he'll spend half his career sidelined with injuries.

He played 80, 78 and 81 games the past 3 seasons. He wasn't ready for the lockout shortened season. He's not fragile.

He's a third wheel.

He wasn't training and staying in shape during the lockout? I know the guy's been playing a lot of basketball in a short amount of time but with these injuries compiling like this I don't see how he can be considered anything other than fragile.

Bosh, from what I'd seen, was never really talked about before talks started brewing he was teaming up with LeFraud. He epitomizes third wheel.

He went out to LA and played street ball.

Wasn't an option in my analogy, though.

Can't blame anyone for a freak injury.


If this moron wins a ring then the Mayans where right and the world will end this year.


What a disgrace.

If the Bulls had Bosh instead of Boozer, they'd be favs instead of the Heat.

Bosh or Gasol would help Rose out a lot, who cares if fans think they're soft.
