Chicago could win so I would say no it would not surprise. Though, the Heat are still my pick out of the East. Lebron turns into a different player post season.

Wise post. 10ish games left in the season, let's see how Rose is doing when he comes back.

Personally, I think the absence of Rose has helped the rest of the team develop....but it raises uncertainty.

Bulls have a legit shot, OKC is beasting....I honestly have no pick for the Champ this year other than Bulls, Miami, OKC and maybe the Spurs.

Yes, I would be surprised and happy. In a seven game series with the Heat, I see Miami winning again. Much depends on how healthy both teams are. Deng has a bad wrist and is not 100%, Rose is not back and hasn't proven he's 100% yet. Hamilton just came back. I think the Bulls are need another piece to beat the Heat in a 7 games series.

The Bulls can win and I predict them to win. Bulls took care of business last night aginst does same Celtics that blew the Heat out on sunday. Keep in mind that D Rose wasn't even playing.

I don't know though, the more and more the Bulls play, they look like a they'd be a threat in the playoffs even if Rose wasn't playing. Pretty impressive that they're playing so well without their only superstar player.

They are a scary team. I just wonder about the introduction of Rose and their conditioning. NO question they are a scary deep team. I will be on vacation during the ECF and finals this year;.....bring on the margaritas!

Wait a minute, are you a diehard NBA Fan because I'm confused that you would take a vacation during the ECF and Finals especially if the Bulls are in it? Why not go on vacation after the season is over?-lol

I think most hotels have TV's with cable in them. But maybe Mathguy is taking a vacation to Afganistan and cable won't be available but for some reason i doubt it.

No one is watching the playoffs if they are on vacation which leads me to believe he is not a diehard Bulls fan.

I can watch the playoffs anywhere, and on vacation is as much of a treat as any other time. Plus I have 6 other people involved in the decision that have summer trips with grandparents and camps and so forth to negotiate around.

So, I will fish in the morning on the beach I'm staying on, have some breakfast, kayak a bit, take a nap and maybe um.....wash my gf's back in the shower..... ..... then head out later to drink daquariis and watch the Bulls!

Repeat the next day.
