I'm going to go ahead and declare this bulls season dead. Injuries aren't going away and it's pretty clear they will lose the #1 overall seed as they have a tough 3 games left and the Heat really only have one tough matchup, but ONE more game than the bulls.

So chances are Bulls will get the knicks first round, and D'antoni is no longer there screwing everything up, so I don't see them getting past the knicks. IF they do, they will not beat the Pacers in the second round, who know the bulls well and play them tough. If by some miracle they do get by those two teams, the Heat will sweep the bulls.

Chicago went 0-4 in sports yesterday. I don't know why I put myself through this crap.

Injuries are clearly an issue, but you are really really over-reacting here. They won't get out of the east if Rose isn't healthy and if that's the case then so what? Crap happens like this and they're a young team that will be even tougher next year.

However, I think the Bulls can get to the ECF without much help from Rose and that means he has a month or more to recover.

P.S. Hockey and the Cubs don't count.

I'm prescribing him 1000cc's of malty beverage and directing him to go look at some nice boobs somewhere. He will be ok.

Yeah, this should still be a good team for a long time. I just had high hopes for this season. I probably take this harder than I should.

Just when you start thinking hmmm Knicks might not be terrible, they go and lay an egg against one of the worst teams in the league!

Ugh!

How about Boston almost pulling one out on the atl with no rondo, Allen, Garnett, pierce.

Can we put that loss to the lakers to bed? Or how about the notion that the spurs can't play against teams with solid bigs who rebound well?

Spirs have played 4 games in 5 nights including a B2B2B with 2 games vs lakers and they have averaged 23 point wins. Spurs have won by 91 combined points this week.
