    Cavs vs Bulls in a playoff series. Who ya got?

    Based on paper and assuming the Love deal finalizes and everyone on both rosters stay healthy, who wins in a playoff series?

    Assuming health, especially with Rose, I'll take defense and go with Chicago. The Cavs may need a year or two to develop chemistry and learn defense.

    Bulls in 6 or 7. More balanced team, more cohesion and chemistry built over years than a new team obviously. I also think we've seen time and time again that to win titles your defense has to be at an elite level and the Cavs don't have the personnel for that as it stands IMO. If they add Marion and a couple other defensive specialists for minimum, obviously it may change.

    Depends on Derrick Rose. If he's 100%, I'd lean Bulls at the start of the year. But the Cavs have more offensive weapons. And elite ones, at that. The Bulls are great defensively, but the Cavs have a ton of offense. If Cleveland learns to play any kind of decent defense, I think they're the better team.

    Depends on Rose really. With Rose I can see it going seven games, with either team winning.

    Without Rose, Cavs in five.

    If healthy bulls of course, but health will be a concern for them once again

    Lebron will have hard times playing with irving and love on the defensive end, I mean they didn't play defense at all their whole career

    Assuming all is healthy I think it's a toss up. This is going to be a great rivalry the next few years as the cabs begin to gel and the bulls young players get some experience under their belt.

    Yeah, but who was really holding them accountable for it? I find it hard to believe LBJ won't be all over them if they aren't contributing. And significantly contributing. Just a thought...

    The Bulls have 2 high upside "wildcards" that could tilt it in their favor. Nobody has seen McDermott or Mirotic play an NBA game yet but both have intriguing upside that fit well with the Bulls culture. Both are lottery picks (Mirotic projected in top 5 of this years draft according to Fran Frascilla because of his success overseas at such a young age.) Those are 2 pieces that I think could put the Bulls over the top because they can overwhelm you with effort and depth. Thibs won't have to play anyone 40 mins a night which means by the Playoffs they'll be in much better shape like the Spurs have been.

    Bulls only if Rose returns to form. We have the most battle tested roster and two of the most NBA ready rookies and the 2nd best coach in the league.

    Both teams have injury prone stars. Predictions at this point are stupid.

    The cavs are also going to have Ray Allen, Marion, and Mike Miller as bench players.

    The Bulls have one winner on their roster. Pau Gasol.

    Cavs - they have the best player in the world and the teams otherwise are close enough
