That's because the Bulls greatest strength is Boston's biggest weakness: Rebounding.

The Bulls slaughter Boston in the paint and beat them 3-1 this season.

Miami's chance at catching the Bulls died with the OT loss to them heads up last week.
dont get me wrong i dont think the bulls would lose to the celtics BUT thats not a cake walk series for either team. like i said i would rather face indy/orlando (especially if howards back is jacked up?) then face the celtics.

Lebron is one of the best all around players of all time. People just don't realize how good he really is...maybe cuz they're tired of hearing about him all the time, but make no mistake, he is one of the greatest....he and KD are the front runners for MVP.

I do think that he has pretty much abandoned what he learned this summer from Olajuwon as far as posting up. Like one NBA analyst alluded to about whether Lebron will use those postup moves in a close tight game or go back to what he is comfortable with. It seems he is doing the latter. He could easily get 3-4 more easy baskets per game if he would just commit to posting up when he needs to. I don't see him lasting as long as Kobe. He gets fouled pretty hard going inside with all those layup drives.....gonna take a toll on his body. I believe KD has the best chance of passing Jordan's career scoring record than Lebron. KD has been healthy his entire career and being a perimeter shooter helps too. I do think KD will need to develop a post up game as he gets older also. My bet is on KD if he stays healthy.

Kobe should pass MJ's scoring in the last year of his contract(2013-2014). If he doesn't have another title by then, i think he hangs it up. Plus, his body is going to break down, so his decision will be easy to make. Don't see him passing Malone's scoring record much less Kareem.

I'm going to be the first to give Lebron credit tonight. He played really well. He's got to keep it up though because they still have a chance to steal the conference from Miami.
