    Major kudos for the Chicago Bulls

    Missing Rose all season ... missing Hinrich and Deng in this series ... Nate Robinson barfing in the trash can the other night  ... that's a lot of heart they showed. Very well done.

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Noah was only averaging 9 points and 9 rebounds in this year's playoffs. But in this Game 7, he had 24 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 blocks!

    Think about it, if KG did something like what Noah did tonight, the Celts would most probably have 18 championships and a possible 19th banner last season.

    It's called rising to the occasion.



    You truly are selective in your criticism.

    Bulls are now the surrogate Celtics

    Unselfish ball, defense, heart, and Thibs.

    Go Bulls.  Beat the Heat.

    I am rooting for the Bulls.  Every time I see Nate playing I wonder why we were so quick to get rid of him,  we may have beat the Knicks with him.

    They can't beat the Heat.

     




    You're probably right.  But who wants to see the Heat win?

    "Think about it, if KG did something like what Noah did tonight"...

    That's unfair man. Noah is half KG's age. Noah has no hardware. Noah has a lot to prove to ever be in the same category as KG. 

    KG showed a lot of heart and is not why the Celtics lost to the Knicks. 

    The Knicks actually showed a lot of heart and resolve themselves. When it mattered they came to play.

    The Bulls were amazing and deserve major kudos but the Nets also collapsed and exposed themselves as total frauds. The Bulls did something amazing but the Nets helped them by caving and giving up a series they never should have lost.

    The worst thing is the Nets matchup well against the Heat (great point guard, beef inside) and could have given the Heat a series. This hobbled Bulls team has NO SHOT. Unless for some reason Rose decides he can somehow play (not likely).

    I think Derek Rose has played his last game as a Chicago Bull....

    We'll find out on draft night I guess.

    I say Rose gets traded, Just a feeling...

    Just another thread the FUNGUS ruined and turned into his personal ego fest..

    on a side note, Thibs showed what a good coach he is... his team played hungry all season and in the playoffs and figured ways to win with so much firepower out. We should have kept him and let the inferior Doc retire...

    Great win for the Bulls. But isn't their situation very close to ours? Star PG out, starting forward out, sackup PG out. Actually their situation is a little better the ours, cause their players (besides Rose) weren't out that long AND their core (Noah, Deng, Boozer) is much younger than ours. Deng played 5 games this postseason logging 45/game. So much for overplaying the players. Thibs as great as he is, is yet not known for using his rotation well.

    In the end: We lost against the 2nd seed in 6, they won against the 4th in 7. Does this make Thibs great and Doc an idiot?

    In 2010, Doc gassed out his players. That 4th quarter, the starters had nothing left in the tank. Once again, Doc left his starters out too long and had no faith in other players once the lead was built. The starters had nothing left when it mattered. Can't believe you are putting blame on KG.

    I'm not saying Noah is as good as KG. No way Noah is on the same level with KG. But Noah delivered when the Bulls needed him the most.

     

    All I'm saying is when put in a Game 7 situation, KG usually does not perform at a high level.

    Back in 2010, Game 7 Finals, it was there for the taking. But KG got outplayed by Pau Gasol in the biggest game of their lives.

    Last season it was Lebron vs. Pierce, Ray vs. Wade, and Bosh vs. KG in the east finals. The only match-up that favored the Celts was KG vs. Bosh. And KG couldn't take advantage of Bosh who was not at 100% because of injury.

    All those players you listed above are relied upon by their teams to score points... KG has never been a big time scorer for the Celtics.  He gets his 20 here and there, sometimes more.. usually less. His mobility and jump have diminished from his earlier years... so what is it youre expecting from him?? To score 30 with 20 rebs in game 7???

    The guy is physically unable to do it every night, including 2010 and last seasons ECF finals. Lower your expectations... not everyone is gonna pull a Larry Bird and get off traction at the hospital and lead the team to victory with a triple double .... thats as rare as finding the next Bill Russell

    why is it that today's players are bigger, stronger, faster, etc.....and yet they can't play the minutes that the old Celtics played back in the day...? in the 68/69 championship year Havlicek averaged 47.2 mpg in the playoffs....Russell in his last year in the league averaged 46.1 mpg....this was a team that relied on the fast break...why can't todays stars do the same thing...?

    Great win by Chicago last night.  They keep winning despite their injuries.  I don't believe they will a series against Miami but should win a couple of games.  Imagine how good they would be if Rose was back this season.  Although, I am surprised that he hasn't returned yet.  If he had returned before the playoffs began and been even 80% of his original self, the Bulls would have had a good chance of advancing.

    Well, possible. As muscles need a lot of oxygen, it is possible that with the added bulk the minutes have to go down. Could also be that the average talent is higher know. An exhausted star in the 60s might still be the best player. An exhausted star in 2013 might be overhelmed from a fresh player with less overall talent.

    Thibs is one hell of a coach, Boozer shed his soft rep and Noah showed he has arrived.
