I think it's silly to discount this years team over what happened last year.

Even though the Knicks got a big win today I can't give them full credit because Rose and Deng missed 4 straight foul shots allowing the Knicks to tie the game. So it;s no way you can feel bad about that loss if you are a Bulls fan

No matter how it happens, a loss is a loss. Whether by 2 points or 20, it goes in the column to the right just the same.

Moot loss, critical win for 8th seed Knicks.

Rose hasn't played in over a month, I really don't give a crap about a single win or loss.

They also coasted several starters on minutes and played 9-deep extensively....and <tips hat> carmello was hot today which I have to say after being critical of him other times.

Really, it's meaningless Bulls have a 2 game lead over any other team in the NBA with season almost over. See everybody in the playoffs.

I have went on this in the past and explained that a LOSS is not always a LOSS and a WIN is not always a WIN. Yes it counts in the loss column but that still doesn't mean it's a real loss based on certain situations in the game. So since the Knicks stole that game, they most likely will lose by 13 or more on Tuesday night to the bulls.

Now if the Bulls lose on Tueday then today's game becomes a REAL LOSS on top of having a L in the loss column.

<shrug> The important games are the 2 bulls vs heat matchups in their last 9 games. Those will decide home court AND psychological momentum.

are you being serious... centers rarely if ever need an 'outside' shot.. especially when you shoot close to or over 50% fg for your career and rebound./block shots.. (edit-one sentence deleted)

What happens in 8 years when he is unable to jump as high?
why are you talking about whats gona happen in 2020? blake's a second year player, he has years to develop further and at this point he's a 20-10 guy, (mod edit-one sentence deleted)
