I think the Magic have the deepest team in the East, the Celtics have the oldest team and the Heat are going to struggle, but they'll get it together. I think the Orlando Magic are going to have the best record, but the most dangerous team in the Eastern Conference is the Chicago Bulls. Especially once they get [Carlos] Boozer back.

http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nba/news/story?id=5867625


The Chicago Bulls have all the pieces in place to defeat any team in the East according to Mr Barkley. Apparently Carlos Boozer has also proven to be the difference that takes a team to the championship.

Cool, lets just call it a season and give it to them. I mean, it is charles!

That's also some really elementary analysis there. Didn't really say anything of substance.

If moses malone says who he thinks will win the west tomorrow should I make a thread about it?

I appreciate the fact that Chuck thinks so highly of the Bulls, but we haven't even played a game with Booz in the line up and he's crowning us ECF champs? :confused:

Gotta give it some time. Personally, I think the Bulls are an SG away from being true contenders, but we'll be able to give some teams a run for their money this season.

This is a week late. He said this on Inside the NBA on thursday.

Bulls are interesting though. If I was a 5-8 seed and had to pick between Orlando, Boston, Miami and Chicago I would pick the Bulls. But at the same time I think the Bulls have solid mathcups within there. Noah is one I think could do a solid job on Howard. Especially if Boozer comes back strong, where them 2 could limit Dwights offensive boards. And against the Heat I think they have ok matchups too. DRose obviously has the advantage at PG and once he gets into the paint he dosent really have anyone to challenge shots. Noah would control the boards there easily too. Still think the Celtics are the favorites though. To much depth.

He clearly states that the Magic will have the best record, meaning they'll win the East. However, I do agree with him on the Bulls being the most dangerous team. I really like the core of Rose, Noah, Deng and Boozer. Although Barkley's opinions and predictions never come true.

I think the Bulls can beat Orlando AND Miami, but not Boston. I'm even having trouble seeing LA beating Boston.

The Bulls have completely different personnel now, new identity, new coach, better players in Rose and Noah, and a low post presence in Boozer. I still don't understand how you can use that as an argument.

Now in saying that, I personally think the Celtics are the best in the east so it's not like I agree with what Charles is saying here. Also I don't mind if others disagree with his opinion especially if they really feel that way and not just because they hate Bulls fans lol.

I disagree with those statements, if the 7th seeded Bulls with an stupid head coach and some inconsistent players can take the championship Celtics to 7 overtimes in 7 games what do you think the improve elite team of the east with a smart head coach and better players in the Bulls can do to the Celtics with overrated Rajon Rondo. The heat can't beat teams above .500 and the Bulls are above .500, the only reason the heat beat the Magic because the Magic wasn't shooting the 3 good like they normally do. The Magic is the only thing that made sense because the Magic are tough with Dwight Howard being the only center in the NBA better than Noah and with their 3 point shooting.

Per Sam Smith


Look at that lineup around Howard: Lewis, a waif like three point shooting power forward; Quentin Richardson, still unable to be insured with perennial back problems; Jameer Nelson, who can get posterized by Earl Boykins. And the dunker formerly known as Vince Carter. With 25 percent three point shooting J.J. Redick second off the bench after Chris Duhon. This is supposed to be a championship team? They donít have even one player close to being an All Star after Howard.

So itís no time to defer to what the Magic did before. Theyíve gone from the Finals to the conference finals and seem headed backward.

Interesting. I still call Celtics win it in the East. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Bulls vs Celts in Conf Finals.

The Bulls are like the Jazz, Thunder, Hawks, Nuggets, and Hornets...

They are all good teams, but noone thinks they are actual title contenders

how can you say that without even watching the bulls with boozer one game? also you never know who the bulls might end up trading for as well.

Well I figured it was assumed that we were talking about the team as is. I mean technically NJ could trade for Melo and CP3. I mean that would change opinions about the Nets and the East.

You are right about Boozer. Noone knows what will happen when he comes back. I mean I personally think that he will make the team better. He is a nice player. But noone knows that for sure. He could completely ruin chemistry or reinjure himself.

Anyway I guess my point was that I was talking about the Bulls and all of the other teams that I mentioned with their teams right now, Dec, 1, 2010

The Jazz and Thunder are title contenders.

Since when? :confused:

The Thunder haven't been out of the 1st round just like the Bulls, so how can they be title contenders when the Bulls aren't?
