    Anyone have any thoughts on the series?


    I'm predicting a Bulls upset. The Bulls should be getting back most of their starters and are coming off a very physical series where they fought through injuries and the flu.


    I think it goes to 7.

    If Rose plays I say the Bulls win.

    If he doesn't, I'm not going to bother even watching the series. No point imo. They could re-sign Jordan..

    I heard Kenny predict that he'd play on the pre-game show. I thought it was just hype and still feel the same way.

    If Deng is back and Henrich then I think the Bulls have a solid shot. They split the series in the regular season but I give the edge to the Heat without Rose in the lineup.

    The Wild Card is the Bull's heart.

    They said he went out on the court prior to the game and played 5 on 5 and looked really good. So my hope is he would play, but he didn't. That makes me think that since it was a game 7 on the line and he didn't atleast try to play, maybe he really isn't ok.

    Boozer is my new favorite Bull.

    It would be one hell of a come back if he did play against the Heat.

    Boozer's finally won me over after hating on him for years. I used to hate that he didn't back down players and bang in the paint like some of the other forwards but damn, his mid range is money. I can't even hate ha ha.

    I think its gonna be a series that a lot of people are watching by game 3 or 4.

    Did you say you lived in Chicago CJ? If you do, is Rose getting a lot of hate or people still seem to love him?

    Heat in 5

    Rose is a bum. No competitive fire in that guy whatsoever. If ya'll think CJ doesn't care, at least CJ suits up.

    Rose won't be back. The guy is Yancey Thigpen soft.

    Bulls might take one, but wouldn't be surprised if they are swept. Miami are well rested, unsure if Deng will be back, same with Hinrich. We're basically suiting up our bench.

    Thibs will have something up his sleeve, but hard to take out Miami in a 7 game series. If he does, he should be coach of the century.

    It's been a year since Rose tore his ACL. Is he healing slower than Britt or something???

    These days it shouldn't be taking young athletes longer than a year to recover.

    The problem with returning now is that he's going to be incredibly rusty and will be playing against the best team. Could be a rude awakening for him. Even if he did return, I'd still pick the Heat.

    If for some crazy reason he doesn't want to play at the beginning of next season, then I'll call him a b*tch, no doubt.

    He was cleared to play in March, been dominating in practice but has come out with these piss poor excuses like "I want to be 110% when I get back", "Only God knows when I am coming back", and the latest was some BS about muscle memory in his knee or something.

    A lot of this stuff won't happen unless he plays.
