While the focus of the NBA has been on the Miami Heat this year, the Chicago Bulls have been constantly overlooked. Even as a 76ers fan, for some reason, I would rather play the Bulls in the playoffs than the Heat or Celtics. I am part of the problem, and the reasoning is because the Bulls do not have the star power that the other teams do. But that does not make them any worse.
The best player on the Bulls is (obviously) Derrick Rose, who should be the league’s MVP this year. Outside of that, they have a great front court (when healthy) with Boozer and Noah. The Boozer signing went virtually unnoticed this summer due to what happened in South Beach.
The Heat have the most dynamic big three in quite some time, and the Celtics have the championship experience, and a bunch of legendary players no their teams. But just because Rose is a new superstar does not make him any below the others.
If your team is playing the Bulls in the playoffs: Good Luck. They are for real.
