    People are underestimating the Bulls with rose. They can take the HEAT down

    By all accounts, Rose is going to be better than ever. He is much stronger than ever, in his legs and upper body. He will be able to take much more contact. He has had lots of time to hone his jumpshot. It looks much more fluid now. Rumor is he actually added 2 inches to his vertical.

    The Bulls will be a serious contender against the HEAT once Rose gets back.

    So this couldn't be said in the other exact same thread about this?

    And no, they couldn't beat them 2 years ago and won't now.

    Right, because teams and players are identical and no changes or development occurs.

    Let Rose come back first and play at least for a few weeks before we start this thread.

    I am glad it wasn't started by a Bulls fan or there would be like 100s of haters coming in no time.

    Even if Rose comes back better than ever, LeBron James is also better than ever. The way Miami is playing right now, no one is beating them 4 out of 7 games.

    Yeah there is change. And the change is Rose tore his acl and hasn't played in almost a year.

    Cute. This obviously goes with the assumption of a healthy Rose by then. Whether that will be the case remains to be seen.

    That aside, Heat fans have quite a selective memory. Let's not act like the Heat "dominated" the Bulls. Fact is, aside from game one, every other game went down to the wire. Heat faired better in those close games, but that's just it. Don't act like that is an indicator of a clearly better team.

    As a Heat fan, you should be as aware as anyone when Heat had a very poor record in close games during their first regular season together that close games tend to be a coin flip. In the end of the day, close games can go either way. Heat won it that series and earned it, but it's no guarantee that they can do it again, at least with a healthy Rose. Granted, again, assuming that is the case which is the entire premise of this thread.

    wade is declining, bosh is overrated and Lebron is the best player in the league. It would take Rose at 100% strength even with the other 2 under performing. The Bulls will hopefully be at 100% strength come playoffs, and if that happens, they can beat anyone. Technically, the Bulls can only get better and healthier barring an incredibly terrible streak of bad luck. The Heat are at their ceiling team wise. Lebron is great and idk how he can get any better. But Wades best days are behind him and bosh is an undersized center who just shoots jumpers and takes a page out of josh smiths book and launches 3's for no reason. They dont have a real center and Ray Allen is going on 50. In a nutshell, the Bulls with a healthy squad can compete with the Heat right now, and thats assuming the Heat are 100% healthy, which is no guarantee. If there is going to be a team in the East that takes down Miami, it will be a Bulls squad led by Rose.

    I didn't realize Lebron is the only player that will be playing.

    i doubt it. the heat are better then they were 2 years ago when they won in 5 games. they've had lots of time to develop chemistry together, and just the fact that mike bibby isn't the starting pg is huge lol. there really wasn't much in support of the big 3 back then. just a banged up haslem and miller along with chalmers and joel anthony. now miami has added battier and allen to the mix, cole is capable of some good defensive minutes off the bench at pg and along with birdman brings energy. i think the bulls are worse now too, they lost asik, and rose likely won't be himself in time for this years playoffs.
