    Jimmy on Miami "Bulls must stop 3-peat"

    The official 2013-14 NBA schedule has yet to be released, but it would seem the most anticipated game of the season will be the opener between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat. D. Rose will finally be back on the court and LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will receive their 2012 NBA Championship rings, their second in a row.
    In the midst of this celebration, Miami's chief rival will stand there and watch all of this unfold. Or will they?
    "I don't think anybody wants to watch that on our team, so we won't pay too much attention to it," said Jimmy Butler on the season opener. "[Miami] deserved it, they won the championship. But they've gotta deal with the Chicago Bulls for 48 minutes coming out right after they get their rings."
    It's that kind of attitude that adds to Butler's status as a fan favorite in Chicago. Fans want nothing more than to see the Bulls knock LeBron and Co. off their proverbial throne, and the team's future star understands the rivalry between these two teams goes well beyond the action on the floor and that it's bigger now than it's ever been.
    "It's not just us, it's the city. That rivalry is crazy," Butler said. "They're the back-to-back champions, but when you think three-peat, you think Chicago. So we can't let that happen."

    I like it. It shows the intensity of the rivalry, the competitive drive, and the eagerness you like to see. I don't think it's the perfect answer per say, but it's definitely an answer you like to hear.

    Miami should have traded Bosh for an anchor in the middle. Personally, I believe the Pacers knock them off this year if they match up again. All in all, I'm pretty confident they don't 3 peat.

    Their window is rapidly closing and they'll have some interesting decisions to make after this season, whether they 3-peat or not. At some point, having the best player in the world (LeBron, obviously) won't be enough for them.

    Jimmy said all the right things. Hoping for a breakout season from him.

    I have no doubt in my mind Jimmy is going to take a HUGE leap this year. He just has so many attributes that should make him great. I think if we are healthy the Heat might be screwed!!! We are already better at the 1,4, and 5. With Jimmy and Deng, we have arguably the best combination of D for Lebron and Wade.

    Greg Oden hasn't played a game in over 3 years and still isn't healthy.

    He's not even practicing full time. So I highly doubt he'll be an anchor in the middle

    Lebron was glad we had injuries, otherwise the Heat would not have won any of those titles the past 2 years.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
