I don't think the Bulls are big enough to win it all. But I would love to see the Thunder in the Finals. I hate the Lakers

Bulls are the best rebounding and defensive team in the league, and number 1 overall. They've got a legitimate shot if Derrick Rose closes games like he did in the regular season.

Conference finals matchups I'd like to see

Chicago vs Miami and NO vs OK City

With the Heat and Thunder meeting in the finals. I used to be a HUGE Bulls fan but I refuse to root for any team with Joakim Noah.

They're gonna need someone other than DRose to step up or it'll end like it did with Lebron when he took the Cavs to the Finals. One man teams don't win it all.

You obviously don't watch much Bulls ball do you?

Does Carlos Boozer ring any bells? He is a Playoff stud, 20 points/10 boards easy.

Luol Deng. Still one of the more underrated players in the league, and consistent as they come.

Chicago has the MVP in Rose, and legitimate 2nd and 3rd scorers. And defensively, there regarded as the best. And they'll have home court advantage all the way through the Playoffs, where they tied for the best home record in the league at 35-6 with the Spurs.

The only "weak" spot this team has is their 2 guard situation, where it's just a clusterfuck of Bogans, Brewer, and Korver. Brewer is one dimensional, Korver is one dimensional, and Bogans just isn't that great. If they have issues, it'll be from that area.

Im happy to see the Pacers actually made it to the playoffs this year, although I don't give them much hope against Chicago.

I'm hoping my Pacers can at least put up a good fight vs the Bulls. Since I'm realistic and see the Pacers most likely will not win the series, I'm rooting for my 'other' team (Thunder) to make it to the Finals. Would love to go to a playoff game down in OKC!

I agree pretty much completely,

it has also been promising to see Hansborough putting up good numbers later in the season, I was unsure of what type of NBA player he might be.

Never said that i don't think they're not good, just not good enough to win a title yet. Just that outside of Rose they're not very scary. Who else on their team is a legitimate threat to drop 30 a game? look at past champions, Spurs, Celtics, and Lakers, hell even Jordan's Bulls. Multiple superstars that work together and each on any night could score 30+ points. Teams win Championships not single great players, case in point Nowitzki with the Mavs and LeBron and the Cavs. Besides their main guy no one else was a real threat to scare the opposing team. I like these Bulls and DRose should be the MVP and is a monster PG but his team to me isn't there yet.

Strong game by the Pacers so far! Up by ten ~5 minutes into the 3rd quarter.

Granger is hitting some clutch ass shots. While all Rose can do is get to the line.

5 players in double figures. Deng and Noah with double doubles. Korver hitting 3s. I guess that's a one man team.

I don't care what anybody says, D. Rose is overrated.

That being said, Go Celtics.

I'm picking Lakers and Bulls for the finals. They have wayyy too easy of a road to the finals in comparison to all the other teams.

And then I'm picking a Laker threepeat. Bigs are most important for a NBA series. Bulls play wayy too much on the perimeter and a cold streak away from losing.
