I haven't been this excited for the start of an NBA season in over a decade, and it's not entirely because of the Rockets. Rose is healthy. Love is healthy. Both conferences are as wide open as they've been in years. I don't even care that Houston's not playing tonight. I'm just thrilled to watch relevant basketball again.

Heat fans are incredibly weak for how good they are TBH. How many games do we see with a good amount of the seats empty even now? Miami is like LA where it's a pretty damn fickle sports town, but even more so.

I don't mind it, so long as Nicholson gets more minutes. We have ZERO low-post defense or toughness. Starting games off with the one guy who has that is fine with me. Bring the scoring off the bench.

has nothing to do with tonight. as a matter of fact, i expect the pacers to come back and win this game easily.

the pacers r just not as good as the bulls, and do not have the toughness that the bulls have.

i said this before the season, considering that i believe the bulls r finishing 1 in the east and possibly the nba, its not a surprise i think this

the pacers r getting lots of hype because of what they did in the postseason, nearly beating the heat.

they were nothing spectacular in the regular season , and although they did add some nice pieces in scola, copeland, etc, they r not on the bulls level with a healthy rose.

well, you certainly made it sound like you were willing to use this game as evidence for your opinion.

and if there's any team that can match the Bulls' physicality it's Indy.


(note, I do think if the Bulls can stay healthy they are a superior team...I just don't think anything that happens for a few weeks or even months really means anything come playoff time)

Eerily being reminded of the countless times I'd wonder why the Heat wouldn't attack the rim as Derrick Rose was showing them exactly why and how to do it. I get labeled a Rose-hater because I didn't think he deserved the MVP and because I think RWB is essentially his equal, and other things too...but God, I've missed his play. So fun.

These teams must hate playing the bulls, you know damn well they don't want to play hard until the second half, and bulls go all out every second of the game.

Quite frankly on a talent level the bulls arent that good, but they work harder than any team in the NBA.

They got rose for that. The problem is in games like when chi played Mia in the playoffs, bron made rose his personal slave, and no one else had the talent to make baskets or make the game easier for rose.

I don't see how any of that has changed.

This is why I don't believe in teams like the Bulls or Pacers to win it all like many predict this year. Offensively they are just so damn awful. Defensively top in the league but I'd much prefer betting on teams like the Spurs and Miami who are top 10 on both offense and defense, than these teams who may be ranked 1st on D but like 21st on O etc.

How the fu** are you going to have 26 at nearly halftime as a so called elite team? 10-37 shooting.

Yea which I don't get anyways. Dunleavy isn't anything special at this point in his career. I'd honestly take Korver over him now. Even Butler's emergence probably isn't enough to make up for the HUGE drop off in depth they have went through the last two seasons.

Yea if they were this bad they wouldn't be a playoff team lol. Although I think people may have jumped the gun calling them Heat beaters this year with the return of Rose. Or saying that they would have the best record in the NBA etc. Rose has to prove his body can come back and handle 82+playoffs now on the knee. Butler has to prove his 30 games of blowing up last year or w/e is here to stay.

Bulls are the kings of the try hards. That coach would have his starters in vs a team a paralyzed midgets, and still be trying to run up the score.

Thibs is a heck of a coach, gets a every oz of energy out of every player. But he's ridiculously arrogant in his ways.

Gotta say that's true. I remember the hype in 2011 especially. Bulls fans SHOULD be optimistic, they have a contender with upside who can CHALLENGE the Heat but as I said it's going to take a while to integrate Rose when the games count and get a flow on offense with the emergence of Butler, loss of more bench pieces. At the half Rose has 7 points on 3-9 shooting, 1 rebound, 1 assists and 4 turnovers. This is the guy everybody was saying last week was back to MVP level and would dominate etc. It's going to take him time.

For sure. Rockets and Bulls are both legit contenders IMO but... I won't even predict sh** about my Clippers because the league is as deadly as ever before. Too many teams that will underachieve and overachieve this year. Don't get me wrong.. I expect WCF or I'll be bummed out, but I'm not going to claim it before they earn it.

We need to talk about this. Bulls had the best bench in 2011. The last two summers they have blown that bench up and now have one of the worst in the league easily. That was a big reason they were so damn good in 2011. The emergence of Butler doesn't make up for losing so many damn good role players IMO.
