Eh.

It really comes down to each series.

Stats and predictions have been debunked during these playoffs... as we all have seen.

So I won't be predicting. Just rooting.

Go Western Conference! (I don't care who it is at this point.)

What is to dislike about this bulls team?

Or is Chicago the new city you are going to troll now that you had your fill of trolling Philly fans?

Hawks are a streaky team with size and talent. Teague is playing out of his mind....which is a nice boost too.

With that said, Atlanta can beat anybody on a given night but are too erratic to advance deep at this point.

Now you are just being silly. Rose is about as humble and down to earth as any guy in the NBA.

Let's be honest....you just have a sore butt from what Rose has been doing to your teams.

The Heat's biggest problem vs. the Bulls are rebounding and bench depth. The Bulls can throw a lot of different guys at Lebron and Wade and just keep pounding the glass.

For a #1 seed everyone keeps predicting them to fail and they just slowly grind their way through teams with defense and rebounding.

Well, we are likely to see Bulls vs. Heat....I will take the Bulls.

He's 22, just won the MVP and is ESPNs favorite toy right now. With all that he is still very humble and seems to have a very realistic perception of where he is. I don't know Derrick, but I do watch/read just about everything I can on him and nothing suggests he has an inflated ego or feels high and mighty.

Luol Deng and him are two of the humblest guys in the league as is most of the roster...It's a great time to be a Bulls fan whether they win a title this year or not.

I hate to Jinx you long-suffering Mavs fans but you are pretty much the favorite to win it all right now.

Wonder if Danny Ainge is kicking himself 100 times over for trading away Perkins, why on earth would he hedge his bets on Shaquille Oneal at this stage in his career? Hands up, who isn't surprised Shaq would be an injured non-factor for the playoffs? ME ME ME!
