Have faith, Math. Should Chicago win tonight, that places all the pressure on Miami to win game 7. Will they rise, or buckle under that pressure? In a prospective game 7 anything can happen. In fact I'd put money on Bulls in 7, even seeing how this series has played out, so the Heat NEED to close this by game 6, ideally( for them) tonight in 5....

i did say and do think that we could have taken the bulls or the heat and had a better outcome than getting swept in the first round by the celtics. the celtics and the magic were our worse possible matchups and we ended up with the celtics in the first round. even then i feel like we could have hung if they didn't have ref assist and if stat didn't try dunking from half court in practice, which caused his injury (he's an idiot for that...who does that??).

Well...there's always next year. Rose is a good dude. I know he'll take it hard but I'm sure he'll learn from this and come back harder.

After this series I feel confident with this:

2011 Derrick Rose = 2001 Alan Iverson

Tonight's game was staged. I swear this seems like a JOKE, the Bulls was up 12 with 2 mins left and lost?

Agreed.

No calls for the bulls. All calls for the heat.

And that lebron flop was a joke.

Those 6 consecutive free throw shots where ridicilious.

Even with those 3 heat 3 pointers, and those missed bull shots in the last minutes..

bulls would of won if it wasn't for all these ridicilious fouls.

I'm jumping on the ref BS call bandwagon.

So I'm wondering if Wade doesn't get that four point play do the bulls win

Eh. I'll wait for the heat defenders to come and see what they say.

All they will say is "waah waah losers" and not acknowledge any foul play.

I'm not a Heat defender and I HATE James but the Bulls choked. The Heat drained a ton of 3's. Not sure how you can mess with that. The Bulls missed a ton of shots because they choked. It's that simple.

the bulls definitely choked.
and i'm definitely not a heat defender at all. here's a post from another site that i go to from another poster:

Quote:
I have never seen such an epic choke job in my lifetime.

THAT WAS ALL ROSE RIGHT THERE.

Rose bricks shot...lebron 3
Rose passes to the heat...wade layup
Rose passes to the heat...wade layup and 1
Rose bricks shot...Wade hits 3 and 1 (Rose foul)
Rose bricks shot...lebron 3 to tie
Rose bricks shot...lebron 2 for the go ahead
Rose gets fouled...chokes at the line
Rose gets blocked on 3 point attempt
BUT, from another poster:

Quote:
LeBron's clearly the best player in the league.

But you guys hating on Rose right now are no different than the guys who were hating on Bron. Every champ needs to face some early struggles. Rose's future is as bright as anyone's.
i hope rose doesn't take it out on himself too much. like i said, he's a good and humble dude. he needs more help. he carried the team and the city on his back, period. without him there is no ecf for the bulls.

now i'm not gonna feel too bad for you guys because i want OUR guys to make it next year and the year after and so on and so forth. lol.
hoping for:
