View Full Version : How Far Can The Bulls Go Now?

So Rose is out, but the Bulls have been winning games all season long without him. They got Boozer and Noah collecting rebounds, Rip coming off screens and a decent PG filling in for Rose, one that it could certainly be argued is better than Chalmbers. Deng is a solid defender and Rip aint no slouch either. So the question is: How far can this team go without Rose?

And as a side note, that dude should not have even been on the court when they were up by 20 late in the fourth, espcially having come off of an injury. They need that time to get some playoff minutes for their bench and give them some experience. But I digress....

Could somebody add a poll to this thread... I meant to add one, but it didn't go through.

This is so sad... I don't know if they can get past Boston. Honestly, still shocked. Great kid. This year sucks.

They are done. I hope Rose can get back to where he was but it seems unlikely. Crazy how an injury of this magnitude has the ability to change an entire franchise's outlook over the foreseeable future. I just wish it would have happened to Lebron.

i can still see them make it to the ecf without him. gonna likely be a very tough series in rnd 2 with boston though with rondo doing work. not that i think they'd beat boston but they could still do it and i wouldn't be shocked. can't see them making the finals anymore though.

Not far at all. Will get worn down too quick in the playoffs without a closer. This is where a guy like Melo would be more useful over someone like Deng. I just don't think we have enough now and we sure as hell can't beat Miami 4 times without Rose. Hell not sure we can beat Boston 4x without Rose.

Bulls might not be able to get by 6ers without Rose.

How's Melo working out for NY.

I see the sixers taking them to 7 and even if they win they will be done by the next round.

I'm hoping they don't get out of the first round. Still feel bad for the Bulls however. For us however this is opportunity to get some very valuable post season experience.

Second round. They could maybe beat Boston and advance to the ECF due to their size, but I think they will struggle against their defense.

They still have 13 NBA players in uniform. I'm not going to make any predictions, I just better see some fight in every single one of them.

ECF, still. Deng and Boozer need to step up big though.

I think they might make it out of the first round but I don't know about the second round, it depends on the match ups.

I don't know, even this round. I'm rooting for Philly. I think Philly has a chance. however they outsize Philly by a lot.

They'll beat the Sixers this series most likely. But Celtics probi going take them apart.

I think they can make it to the ECF but it will be very tough - even tougher without Rose - Don't think they have any chance past that though.
