Indeed.... until then, easy on your claims that the Sixers are the second best in the East.

they are still the second best team in the east until

1. they lose mutiple games to the bulls
2. lose the lead of the division to the celtics
3. lose to a team in the east besides the heat


btw...."celtics will only be 3 games behind the sixers if they beat the lakers tonight"

You keep repeating that to yourself....You're delusional if you think Philly is at BEST third behind Miami and Chicago. No way in hell would they beat either in a playoff matchup.

No, the Bulls are 1-2 in their last 3 trips to Philly. In both losses the Bulls were missing several starters.

It's ok, keep flailing away because I'm almost feeling guilty for how bad the ribbing is going to get around here in a month.

(I think you are counting one of the 2011 games in Chicago where they split 1-1 as being in Philly, otherwise you have to go back to 2010 to get the 3rd game in Philly)

OH PLEASE STOP with the missing starters crap. Come on man, Derrick Rose, the MVP played in both losses.

Against a bad team yeah the Bulls could sit some starters but vs. probably the 4th or 5th best team in the east on their home court that's a tougher proposition.

P.S. I've changed my mind about grouping Philly, Atlanta and Indy together. I think Indy is clearly better and Atlanta has regressed....not sure where to put Orlando though.

I refuse to figure out the rest of the east beyond the heat, bulls, and sixers because last night

Pacers lost to atlanta and the Heat lost to the magic.
