The Heat are heavily favored to beat the Bulls by the media and most of PSD. That's not to say that they shouldn't be, but it is what it is. That said, do you think the Bulls have a larger underdog role than the Mavs did vs LA? Keep in mind that Dallas did not have HCA and the Bulls do.

Mavs... Most fans don't even know who the underdog is in the Heat-Bulls series (Bulls).

^I'd beg to differ regarding your sentiment that fans cannot identify an underdog in the Bulls-Heat series. The Bulls are heavy underdogs imo. ESPN, NBA TV, and a large portion of PSD seem to think the Heat will win the series. However, I do agree that the Mavs were probably bigger underdogs since they were facing the champs without HCA.

Again, the Bulls are favored on Sunday and the majority of America (53% of ESPN users) pick the Bulls. Not huge underdogs :shrug: NBA.com was 54/46 in favor of Miami...again, not a huge gap. CBS is 54/46 in favor of Chicago instead.

Hell, look at the poll here. More people are picking Chicago (so your claim is a bit off...)

Dallas was a significant underdog going into that series...both in Vegas and amongst the public.

IMO the Mavs were bigger underdogs. Just cause for me it's tough to say the Bulls are big underdogs when they swept the season series (Not a shot at Heat fans, just fact). Sure, it's the regular season and not the playoffs and while it doesn't guarantee anything, it should be considered when you're looking at the matchup. Should be a great series!

This is a very transparent attempt to once again place the HEAT in a no win situation. Once again, if they win its, "Who cares, they were suppose to win," and if they lose its, "Ohhh the big bad HEAT got knocked out by the underdog Bulls."

What a joke!!!

I mean seriously, you cannot truly believe that the Bulls are the underdogs and also truly believe they will win the series, bc those two things are contradictory...

I don't even get how this is a serious question honestly...

I can't think of an argument suggesting the Bulls are huge underdogs. Hell, I think it's almost easier to suggest that they're favorites. And the fact is, the majority of the country (including users here) are picking the Bulls to win this. So again, how are they underdogs? I actually think they're the favorites to an extent.

There is really no clear underdog in the Bulls-Heat series. I think the Heat are the better team but the Bulls have HCA.

of course they're not underdogs. when u say a team is an underdog ur referring to a team like the grizzlies.

its gonna be a dogfight regardless.

lol what's wrong with people? There's no way that the Heat or the Bulls should be heavily favored in this series.. I guess this is what happens when a bunch of random bandwagoners decide to vote. :P I think the series is going to be very close. The Mavs vs the Lakers was the bigger underdog before their series.. Based on their previous early exits, it was a shock to many that they were able to get by Portland. Also the Lakers were basically handed the Western Conference title at the beginning of the year. lol

I dont think anyone is really saying that the Bulls are over whelming favorites either... that's kinda the point. The HEAT have a star advantage... but the Bulls are the number one seed for a reason. Both teams are good. The series ultimately could go either way. There really is no favorite here...

For me the Bulls are the underdog here.

The Bulls have the best record in the league. They have home court advantage. The easily win the PG and C match-ups, and PF is a wash in my book, perhaps an edge going to Boozer. But while LBJ will easily outplay Deng, there will not be as big a difference between what LBJ does on Deng and what Rose will do on Bibby/Chambers. Key match-up is shooting guard for Miami. But these teams are both good and neither can honestly be considered an underdog.

Dallas was an under dog in the LA series, but not as much as Memphis was in the SA series.

so just because Rose said you're underdogs, your underdogs?? Look nobody is underdogs in this series, not you guys, and not us. The guys on ESPN are stupid as crap as it is. You guys act how ESPN analysts are dumb, then turn around and act as if what they think hold any merit when you can use it like this (to call the Bulls an underdog).

The Mavs are surprising to me only because of their past. However, earlier I would've said the Heat were the underdogs but now I think it's the Bulls. Even though the Bulls beat the Heat during the regular season. Go all underdogs. I hope it's a Memphis-Chicago Finals.

DaBear
05-14-2011, 12:49 AM
I don't think the Bulls are as big of underdogs as you think. Miami fans will make you think that because a lot of them are cocky, but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to think the Bulls have just as much of a shot as they do of winning the series. The Bulls swept them in the regular season, have homecourt advantage, and a strong front court which is Miami's weakness.

DaBear
05-14-2011, 12:51 AM
And like someone mentioned, the Bulls were favored 52-48 percent by the ESPN poll voters. Just because the majority of the ESPN "experts" picked the Heat does not mean they are heavily favored among the rest of the sports world.

Is this a trick question? If the thread was OKC vs Memphis or LA vs Mavs that is one thing. Mavs were huge underdogs, come on now. They were playing the 2x defending champions, a player in Kobe who was 24-1 in series with HCA and also they themselves had a history of losing in round 1 to inferior teams so imagine against a championship team.

The Mavs were picked by virtually nobody to advance past the 2 time current champions.

The Bulls are not favorites...turn on your TV and this will be evident. And what's with everyone saying "what does the media know?". They sure as hell know more than we do. These guys study basketball for their lives and most have played at the professional level.

Also, of the 15 ESPN analysts, only 3 picked the bulls to win. Of those same 15, all 15 picked LA to win although 5 picked LA in 7. If these so called champs were supposed to roll over the Mavs, I doubt analysts would predict such a close series.

Bulls are now SLIGHT underdogs, nothing drastic (like 52-48, almost a coinflip).

Despite what everyone else has said, these games will be close and close games come down to coaching. Chicago has a gigantic advantage in that department.

As for the Mavs, we're all still shocked they're still here, they're the REAL underdogs:

No respect when they played Portland
No respect when they MATCHUPED against the Lakeshow, let alone play them.
Now they will probably get less respect regardless of who they play next round.

Personally, I'm surprised the Bulls aren't favored to win, even by a little or to go 7 games.

A lot of people had Dallas being ousted by Portland. Then playing the 3 time defending Western champs, probably 10% of America gave the any shot.

It's just a bad comparison. Maybe using the Thunder/Griz instead of LA/Dallas would be better fit.

Bulls were 3-0 Against heat.

Bulls have home court

Bulls are deeper and have a deeper bench.

Miami has the big 3 and I am picking them to win by a short margin only because how they looked against the celtics and Sixers. Everything clearly favors the bulls to be honest so I am just trying to figure out how the heat are favorites.

Doesn't momentum have something to do with it too? On paper the Heat are far and away better, but for the majority of the year the Bulls were the better TEAM. Miami's just now figuring out the team concept they've been missing all year. If the Bulls play better team basketball than the Heat it could be a lot closer than most people think

If you want to factor for momentum, heat win that on heavily...they just dispatched the celtics in 5 while the bulls went 6 games with the hawks...It would take 4 amazing games from the bulls to beat the heat and i think we have only seen 1 really good game from them in the post season so far.

Bulls-Hawks series was never really all that close... we handled them in the 4 wins and won by double digits each game... as for the Heat-Celtics series, yes the Heat looked pretty good in beating them, but just because the Bulls-Hawks series was one game longer than the Heat-Celtics series doesnt mean that the Bulls were that much worse... let's just let them play the games and see what happens

I think it's funny that the Bulls are the underdog in the series. They've had the Heat's number all year. I'm saying Bulls in 5.

You didnt get the memo? The regular season doesnt mean anything, the Bulls don't have a 2nd gear, the Heat are unstoppable, the only way they will lose is if they have an injury

I agree with this to some degree. The Bulls were in control in one of their losses, Game 4 I think it was, until Josh Smith went through one of his "smart" basketball phases. Game 1, the Hawks were just on fire. In all the Bulls wins, they won pretty decisively. The only true blowout the Bulls had in that series was Game 6. Still, I never got an itch that the Hawks would win that series, even when the Hawks were playing well.

I will admit that the Bulls looked awful against the Pacers except for Game 5, in some ways, the Bulls-Pacers series was a lot tougher than the Hawks series, even though we lost more games to the Hawks
