Which team do you think is the favorite to when the championship?

I think it's the Celtics they can beat any team in a 7 game series the way they're playing unless the Heat or Lakers take their game to another level(which I don't see happening)

I think it'll be a Celtics-Spurs final, with the Celtics taking it in 6 or 7 games.

Alternatively, it could be another Celtics-Lakers finals if the Lakers can overcome the Spurs.

Sorry Heat fans, I think the Celtics are too strong (when healthy) this season.

bulls need a true pg? are you ****in ********, how stupid can you be. dont be mad because rose is already better then rondo,and fans like him more (starting pg). face it, he's just better. i mean who is better then him, d-will, cp3. give till the end of the year when he takes home the MVP, then he'll get his respect


Rose >>>>>> Rondo

and wtf is up with everyone saying the bulls arent contenders!?!! look at the heat, i cant wait till playoff time when they get embarrassed. what are they gunna do when their is 4 seconds left in the 4th and they need a 3 to tie, who get it wade or lbj?

and damn, the bulls arent even 100% healthy right now, wait till after all star break.. but go ahead everyone keep talking their crap, ill be the one laughing in the end,

Not a bulls fan but Drose is playing at a mvp type level. Look at their record and they havent even been fully healthy yet. I didnt think Rose was gonna handle pg when he first came into the league but he prove me wrong. What they need is a real sg to really contend for a title

There's no such thing as a "true" PG. Each PG does whatever it takes for their teams to win, they have different teams so they all call for something different from their PGs...so, yeah.

Rose is a dime a dosen there is a rose in every draft. When both players are retired for 10 years who are people going to remember more? Its going to be Rondo by a landslide. Rose is just anouther above avg sg that is all.

youre stupid, rose in every draft? like i said, the big 3 that boston has will be gone in 3 years, that means you just have rondo, bulls will be better with OUR big 3, we will win more championships then rondo, we are one of the youngest teams in the league, like i said, in 3 years the bulls will have at least 1 championship. nuff said.

$11 million for a streaky shooting, undersized, no defense SG is not something I wanted long-term, and I'm glad the Bulls FO thought so as well. He was a constant headache from one game to another.

Not to mention the fact that Rose definitely doesn't progress the way he has with Ben Gordon still on this team and we'd be in a much worse position financially.
