The Bulls seem to be predicted to break out every single year....

I just don't see it...

Good PG who doesn't play defense or shoot, no replacement level SG, inconsistent injury-prone average starting SF, injury prone PF who gets owned by tall bigs, and to top it off another average or slightly above big...

this is a contender?

I won't speak on the Bulls, but the Knicks have been underrated for sure... a lot of people had them worse than the Nets, out of the playoffs and basically no knowledge of the players on the team (hating on the players).

Relax, its not like he said the Knicks are better than the Bulls. Bulls are considered a top 4 team in the east and the Knicks are projected to MAYBE get a playoff spot. So yes the Bulls are overrated and its not that crazy to say the Knicks are underrated, its an opinion but nothing to get mad about.

A slow start and now we're overrated. Funny.
U were always overrated, even before the season started. Ur result right now just confirms u are overrated.

Utah owned u by 21 point at ur home.
U barely won Pistons...only by 1 point.
Clippers owned u by 15 points.
U won Blazers by 1 point...
And Boston just confirmed that u are not Championship caliber team at your home.

Basically ur record right now is like 1-5, but you pulled of 2 games by 1 point.

And as far as I remember before the season started everyone were crowning you as West conference finalists and Kevin Durant as MVP, so yes, you are overrated.

P.S: Thunder was my 3rd favourite team before this season

Bulls overrated??? Based on what? They were projected to be fourth in the East, and they will be fourth. Their second best player is injured, and they have faced 5 playoff teams in the first 6 games. You all are Bulls haters. I will make a sig bet with anyone that the Bulls will end up top four in the East.

How the hell are the Bulls projected to break out every year?

in 06', they were considered the next up and coming team. In 07', they underachieved and jumped 12 teams to get Rose. Since then, many have regarded them the next breakout team, when really not a ton has changed. But yes, adding Boozer is going to help quite a bit, so this may actually be the year they move into contender talk. Though I don't think they are with no SG, and minimal depth

Normal people projected them 4th in the East.
Chicago homers projected them 2-4 in the East.
Ur second best player is Joakim Noah, after him - Boozer, just because he is injury prone.
U won't be seeded 4th because of 4 reasons: Magic, Celtics, Hawks and Heat.
And I doubt u will be seeded 5th as NY might give you competition.

I see your point if you think that Bulls fans think that the Bulls are contenders. They aren't and I don't think most Bulls fans think they have a legit shot at a Championship unless a lot of things go right. Most people think fourth in East and second round exit. Which isn't overrated. Bulls with Rose, sg, Melo, Boozer, and Noah would be a contender.

I stand to be corrected. We might be fifth due to the Hawks. As far as saying NY might give us competition is a complete joke. Do you think the Bulls won't get fifty wins or that the Knicks will get 50 wins?

Actually you are wrong. Bulls fans projected ourselves to be 2-4 in the east when we knew we had a healthy roster. Once Boozer went down, our perception was different.

Also we clearly would get a top 4 seed as long as we win our division. The rules enforce that.

that is mostly what I am getting at.
And yes, if you add Melo with only having to give up Deng and a pick, you get a little better. Not a lot, but better. Deng is actually underrated at this stage. But you still need depth, and a legit SG. I loved the attempted Reddick signing, but that didn't work out unfortunately

And yes, I've actually heard A LOT of talk about the Jazz and their title contention this year because of the almighty Al Jefferson (obviously outside of PSD). And if people are calling them title contenders that's overrating them. If you want to get bent out of shape, so be it.

While Deng is good I have to disagree. I do think we immediately become contenders if we get Melo. The Bulls have nice depth in Brewer, Taj, Korver, and Watson. I know it isn't spectacular but Boston's bench isn't far better. Also Melo, Rose, Boozer, and Noah puts the Bulls at contender level. Not saying dominant because they still have to learn how to play together, look at the Heat, but it would give us a chance to reach the Finals if everything went well, and if all the players played to their maximum potential. It is hard to get a team together and say they are going to get to the finals because there are such good teams out there. Look at the Heat. They got 2 of the top 5 players and another all-star in Bosh and still you can't say they will get to the Finals and win it because of Magic, Spurs, Lakers, and Celtics. The Lakers, Celtics, and Spurs are so far ahead of everyone team chemistry wise that it would be tough to beat them based on higher talent. Plus, they have some talent of their own :).

Everyone that said Houston is overrated is on crack and are bunch of brainless idiots.

they are simply looking at their record. Houston will be in the playoffs. But some experts even had them as high as #2-3 out west this year. With Yao coming back and having to find his game again, the roster adjusting to him, and the various injuries they have had this season, a bad start was not that out of the question. I don't think they are overrated per say, but I also don't think they are a contender. They are kind of the Bulls of the west I guess.
But Houston will still win 45+ games imo. Could even break 50 if they get a few nice win streaks going, and put away the teams they are supposed to beat

Sixerlover
11-09-2010, 06:12 PM
Houston was a favorite team of mine coming into the year, the backcourt scoring was deadly, it's a shame that Brooks got hurt. Plus look at the teams they had to play so far, brutal. They'll still be in the playoffs all things considered hopefully.

agreed for the most part. But I have made my feelings clear on Melo's play. I don't think he is that great really. Obviously he would be an updgrade over Deng, but not by as much as most would think. Deng is an excellent defender and passer. He can't carry a candle to the scoring ability of Melo, but I don't think the Bulls would be THAT much better with Melo honestly.
The Heat are a perfect science experiment this season. We all get to see what throwing the two best players in the NBA together, along with another talented big man, with a bunch of role players, will grow into.

You must not very educated when it comes to NBA basketball, whoever win the Central will be the 4th seed by default.

Most analyst are prediction the Bulls to be a 43-47 win team, which seams reasonable and by means overrated; I believe ESPN has them rank around 15th. You must be making all of observation of basketball by what people write on PSD.

It seams very pre-mature to make all of these conclusions on teams, there's a lot of basketball to be played, but the only overrated team I have seen so far is the Heat. They are very good team, I'm not trying to take away from that; this the team before the season was the Vegas odds on winners, people have talk about them breaking the Bulls record for win this season, and the team was jumping and dancing around saying "we did it". They have accomplished nothing yet and unless they have big turn around I can't see them winning it this year.

Can't really pick 4 for all of them...

Overrated

ThunDurant: the hype machine, as I predicted, has completely overrated both the team and the player, no MVP, no WCF...and as much as the media and fans want them/him to be so great...they just aren't at that level
Atlanta: anyone who thinks they'll be better than 4-5 in the East anytime soon is wrong
New Orleans: I just wanna see more from them, they are not a top 5-6 team in the league

Underrated

Heat: they'll get it going, and by season's end, they will live up to the hype...sadly, people are looking for negatives too hard; they're there, but they aren't really much to write home about
Spurs: as long as their big three stays healthy, they'll be fine, I think their depth will get them close to, if not all the way to the WCF
Clippers: they'll get it going, and they are better than a 1-6 team

Just Right

Rockets: didn't like their team before last year, didn't like them before this year, and I still think they finish around 10th in the West..the 1-5 start isn't a fluke
Magic

I wonder if anyone know that they were less then .500 heading into December last season? It's 6 games, give it a little more time. And if they still struggle, then I will be the first to admit the truth. People are way too quick to judge on this site.

They didn't make the playoffs in his first year but people were acting as if Rose was the 2nd coming of MJ.

Uhhh. Yeah they did. They took Boston to seven games.

How are the Bulls overrated:confused:. People on PSD sure as hell don't overrate them when most of them take every opportunity to insult the Bulls or there players. Was it ESPN that was overrating them when they had them at 16 in there last power ranking. The only people who you could say overrate the Bulls are bulls fans, and honestly what fan doesn't overrate there team. It's as much apart of being a fan as watching the game or wearing a team jersey you hope and you pray for your team to succeed and along the way you convince yourself there better then they really are. It's sad when you read a thread title and you immediately know that at least half the people who post in that thread are going to say something negative about your team, it's even sadder when it happens on a semi-regular basis

I can't wait until the Thunder prove everyone wrong. It's amazing how six games can turn them into an "overrated" team full of unwarranted hype.

I wonder if anyone know that they were less then .500 heading into December last season? It's 6 games, give it a little more time. And if they still struggle, then I will be the first to admit the truth. People are way too quick to judge on this site.

Way to early to judge I like the thunder and think they will be a top team in the west... keep having faith in your team and ignore everyone else

Im lovin' that the Warriors are gettin' some love as an underrated team. As a lifelong fan, I will bask in this as it hasn't happened very often in my over two decades of allegiance. I'm hoping that can remain healthy and sneak in as an 8 seed!

I saw people as soon as Rose was drafted that they would be making the playoffs.


Even last year, I saw people saying how Rose will lead the Bulls past the Cavs.

:crazy:

And we did make the playoffs. So how does that show that we are posed to break out yearly? I don't consider making the playoffs as a 8th or 7th seed as breaking out.

We lost to Boston by 8 and it was our first game at their house, Bosh and Wade struggled.
We lost to NO who are undefeated still and we were the closest ones to beat them at their home.
And now Utah got lucky and won us by 2
Those 3 loses don't mean a lot.
We need to get Spo retired, because he ruins everything and when we will see.
He doesn't give Chalmers or Pittman minutes, he makes stupid decisions...at some period there was noone from big 3 in the court in 2nd quarter last game..wtf with that?

If we lose to Boston at our house, you can proudly call Miami overrated.

No the Heat are overrated. This team was to run away from everyone. They have as many losses as the Bulls, Pacers, and Cavs. Goes to show the Cavs were a whole lot better than people thought.

#1 Clippers (Blake Griffen you sir are a beast, now clippers trade Davis and go to work)
#2 Kings (Evans + Cousins = A superb Tandem(
#3 Warriors (Its hard to believe maybe all these years it was Donnie holding em back?)
#4 Cavaliers (No Lebron, No Problem! ... Okay maybe a bit of a problem Enter JJ)
#5 Nets (so much talent and potential lets see it go somewheres)

OVERRATED
#1 Chicago (Maybe this will be the year they can bust away from this title)
#2 Heat (Find me a championship team without role players and Ill show you luck)
#3 Denver (Really,Who's playing second fiddle to Melo? A old Billups? They need better)
#4 Atlanta (Joe Johnson, Max Contract, Good Joke)
#5 Mavericks (If you find a playoffs and not choke you could break free from this list)

APPRECIATED
#1 Lakers (3 finals appearances in a row..Must be doing something right)
#2 Celtics (The big 4 earn their respect each time they take the court)
#3 Spurs (They always seem to be right there knocking come playoff time)
#4 Magic (Maybe not a legit title contender when stacked up but they deserve this list)

Underrated:
Spurs (You are right, the Spurs are the Spurs and remain a legit title contender)
Haslem (Outrebounding the guy he backs up EVERY night!)
Cavs (4-4 might not sound like much, but its only half a game behind Miami, and Varajao and Hickson have proved to be solid players, and Mo-Will may not be the best point guard in the league, but he plays with a lot of heart, and the Cavs have been without Jamison all season....Byron Scott may get these guys into the playoffs yet!)
Landry Fields (second reound, and even the Knicks picked somebody else ahead of him, showing he's got an NBA ready game and looking to leap frog a lot of lottery picks to the All-Rookie team).

Over-rated
Pat Ewing (sorry... I know that's old school, but I always have to bring him up when people talk about over-rated and basketball).
Miami (5-4.... I know they gotta work on chemistry, you can just build a team out of spare parts, but considering people were talking about them and the 72 win Bulls in the same breath this offseason and they already have as many losses as that Bulls team had in Febuary... just saying).
Bosh (getting outrebounded by his back-up every night... did i mention that already?)
Amare (sure, he outscored Lee in their head-to-head, but Lee's team won, and the Knicks could have had both these guys playing side-by-side if they played their cards right)

appreciated
LA v Boston (outisde of the Spurs, these two are my fav teams to watch this year, well coached, talented and unselfish).
D-Will v CP3 (now that both are healthy, they are sparking the debate again: whose the best PG in the league? Of course Rondo is in the coversation as well)
Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose (Are the Bulls overrated? Maybe, but you gotta love watching the guy who is poised to take the rebounding title from Howard and the young point guard whose making D-Will, CP3 and Rondo work their @$$#$ of to stay in the running for best point guard in the league).
Wade and LBJ (I may have the Heat in as overrated, but anybody who loves basketball has to love the way these two have been moving the ball on the fast break- they love passing to each other and its fun to watch them when they are on their game).

Thats the Point Exactly. The Point is many people projected you to break out after drafting Rose. Bulls Fans/Analysts alike. That makes you overrated. Making the 7th/8th seed after missing the playoffs the year before isnt exactly breaking out. Your still a great Team with A Franchise PG, but no.

No one projected the Bulls to break out with a first year coach, and a rookie PG both leading a change in direction from where the organization was just the year before.
