13pts 3 ast in first preseason game back for D-Rose. Not bad.

What record will they end up with?
How far will they go? Can they beat Miami? Can they beat Indiana?
Will butler live up to his expectations? Stats? Most Improved this year?
Trade predictions?

And which Bulls games would be the best for me to attend this year (home and away) ?



My guess is 68-14 but I'm being optimistic
let's say 62-20 at worst.
2nd seed in the East, 1st round win, 2nd round game 7 win against the 3rd seed Pacers and game 6 win in Chicago against the 1st seed Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
And in the Finals...WHO KNOWS! 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7

I figure 60-62 wins and 1 or 2 seed.

I think they need a little more playoff experience to get past Miami, but it's possible.

We will have to wait and see about Indy, a lot of people extrapolate how good they might be based upon how they played the heat last year in the playoffs but the reality is that they match up very well against the Heat and not nearly as well against Chicago.

It is certainly not *crazy talk* that the Bulls could win a championship this year, but personally I think it's more likely in another 2-3 years.

I think 55-60 wins.

I also think they will make it to the finals and win in 6.

Kirk Hinrich must stay heathly. He's a big piece for bulls to beat the Heat.

With Butlers development and Rose back, they should be able to use heinrich more sparingly during the season.

What record will they end up with?
50-59

How far will they go?
Depending on injuries and seeding to the Semis, Conference, or Finals. If Pacers are seeded with the Heat and manage to beat the Heat then Chicago takes the East. If Chicago has to face the Heat at any time then Heat knocks them out.

Can they beat Miami?
Depending on injuries, yes potentially, but not likely.

Can they beat Indiana?
No, Miami got passed thanks to our perimeter shooting. The Bulls don't have that - if Bulls and Pacers meet in the playoffs I think it will go Pacers.

Will butler live up to his expectations? Stats? Most Improved this year?
Yes, not going to guess, and no

Trade predictions?
No clue

And which Bulls games would be the best for me to attend this year (home and away)?
Most hostile game will be against the Heat after last season. But go with whatever other team you like watching and can afford to see.

I'm confused by the underlined sections. Am I misreading or are those contradictory.

Indy's problem is that the Bulls have one of the bigger, tougher defensive interiors in the league and won't be as successful in the paint as they were against Miami. Bulls went 1-3 against Indy last year in fairly competitive games, without Rose.

Well, at least you aren't claiming the Bulls are no threat whatsoever like some of the other Indy fans that have decided it's time to start trash talking.

I really need to drink more coffee before posting! I'd love to say what I meant but I don't even know anymore and the more stats and things I consider the less I know.

Pacers / Heat / Bulls are all neck and neck. I think Bulls and Heat will have the better standing in the regular season but that the Pacers could very well take the post season. Bulls are missing perimeter shooting and what little they had last year out of Nate Robinson got traded to Denver. Heat lost Miller so we'll have to see how someone else steps up in the big moments. Pacers on the other hand only got stronger.

Hinrich, Butler, Deng, and Marco were decent perimeter shooters last year...

This year it's those first 3 plus Dunleavy and Snell...

I think they have decent shooting, but lacked more of an offense last year without a slasher and playmaker like Rose who could set up the open shots and the right plays...

I wouldn't say so...The Bulls' legacy was almost cut short in '98 in game 7
But great video. I love Reggie's cocky attitude. Too bad it was too soon
