CTL: Are the Bulls contenders?
Tue, 12 Feb 2013|
The CTL panel discusses how far the Bulls can go with or without Derrick Rose, and whether they are legitimate contenders in the East - 2/12
You're giving this guy -- all time -- been a head coach for three years three plus he is huge because if you wanna see a good coach -- -- about the gotten -- -- -- -- I don't know really good field. No doubt about that it's goes down in history as one of the greats no question when he sustained a lot of people don't know why did got to look at it -- get a lot of doctors they do that that is Syria and I'm sure that all of us all of a force. If they think you're healthy to put you back on the floor and I think you know my doctor loses job. He pulled him out he's not ready so that's why I think rose's comments are interesting because a lot of doctors there he's watching no being like full. Forget this -- go out there on my terms has no has been so far cleared to play. Why is he playing anyone with a mindset back feel like why they just rest don't play all star game he has an injury that rest will help him. It did admirably got to know he's wanna play my judgment mentality that he has the Bulls have to be bigger in this situation like. Why also why just take ten days off. He's not gonna fall out of shape he's not in maturity more give -- a rest that's why I think that the Rose comments -- think is most like. Forget that they're not gonna push me back out there and I know they're not but I think him saying that's the media. Raise a red flag in my mind that he wants. Be absolutely certain that he is healthy but I still -- you've got me back this year I really do I didn't -- no matter what could there's some people are less that I did you have out artists have because I know that. Who wasn't Magic Johnson sits up in -- -- welcome back for next year earning him like that. I do still think you know you've noticed don't get up last night I still think they're going to be in a decent position. In this kind of pathetic Eastern Conference so great then they'll be in good position -- come back you bring their growth and I think they can contend. I'm not saying they can beat the heat I must admit it all because LeBron is part of a level that we never you know just another level I mean I thought he was great already now he's taken it to another level. And he's they're gonna be tough to beat. But I do think they can contend and maybe be in the finals maybe in the Eastern Conference farm. I agree I don't do you have any Eastern Conference finals in any scenario -- okay. OK who's gonna be there cap the money anyway yankees. This guy who picked brutal group the fifth save. In these -- and not finished picked and all my career high center roll back the taste it just goes seven or eight you don't get one of those three Deion was -- number -- throughout their right now right now other currently fourth half game behind the Pacers. And you trust the Knicks when the nets and the Pacers more than boards every -- in the net serve. I think -- Knicks are better team I think the Pacers are better team yes. Whole lot you just said team and Carmelo Anthony in the same sentence I did -- did you watch how we have 44 in the on the weekend and his team lost by its morning there is most selfish -- athletic it's -- -- -- From Baltimore -- biggest on the fifty times. Most -- offensive player ever seen. More talented than LeBron offensively he's only cares about himself. When the Knicks will never win or Carmelo Anthony just like no team NBA's number one with Carmona and I think the Bulls are in good -- some paper please mark the tape. So whether I'm right now we can play it back. Got into OK yeah. Had another step though. Darren Williams I know he's hurt now -- that. He hasn't been the guy either to put the Mets over to Tony -- it -- -- off -- they've brought an -- Joseph judge they thought they did a good match every brook Lopez's play and probably better than anybody on the team and that's that's when my dog can't find -- more than that's the -- the Pacers are buying more on the -- I like to face yes I like to pin locations in the mix when you guys are. Adding a lot of Bulls team that doesn't have its best player right now there and you don't know when he's coming back. When he does come back Q you both advocating. Limited minutes form right now so I you just don't know what you're gonna get from a 'cause I this team right now even with him isn't built. So to win the NBA -- Each of color dot -- I agree with you but you know what. I'd like we're coached two of those I'm like I said last night was just -- a little bit without them here but I got just like the way he coaches a game like the way because I know there's a lot of people to get on his case about leaving guys out there -- -- minutes and stuff like that. But I think they'll get to at all string now what -- right there but I do think. As you slowly bring their -- into Atlanta and other guys is gonna make other guys better because I think didn't make the other guys better. Last four games law thing has been terrible here and looked up the numbers shooting 30% from the field for a horrible he needs to be consistent each and every game. Honestly the Bulls need to play well to win they can't just show up they're not that talented we've seen them lose to I don't have anything or rather in the Eastern Conference final. I think the one word that makes the Bulls special is the word team room and you've -- -- at least in conference don't forget the Bulls you have a lot of effort every night. When you get to the playoffs everyone else comes up today they'll have another gear especially if there were eleven Americans agree with him when he said. -- anything is affected team they didn't play team basketball last night. The Spurs did. The Spurs were moving the ball around they were on an open man nineteen turnovers and I -- well I mean just we're not playing team basketball when they play team basketball there okay.
