    Really, these guys didn’t behave so well beating my Celtics. No way I can root for them. I was hoping for Memphis the misfits but now I have to root for Tom T our coach and Derek Rose is a quality human being. No circus act.

  2. I don’t know Ryan….

    Not only do I think the Bulls are a better team, I think they’re more fun to watch. D-Rose is unbelievable and could easily be the best player on the court this series. As much as I hate Noah he’s an energy guy and a total pest—the kind of guy you love if he’s on your team and hate if he’s playing against you.

    I don’t blame Cleveland one bit for hating LeBron forever. The way he left was so over-the-top inexcusable I believe it’s justified. People can forgive a player for taking more money somewhere else, but they cannot (and should not) forgive him for drawing it out, making it all about him and helping to create a show where your city gets a proverbial dump taken on it on live TV.

    Sure I like D-Wade. Good guy great player. But Bosh??? What’s so exciting about watching Chris Bosh? I don’t see it.

    Go Bulls.

  3. Bosh only wnted to fit. No one knew of him till he joined d wade would of just rather took boozer. But drose has him now give it 3years till Bosh or wade decide they wanna get traded cause lebron fails at getig to the top lol C-bulls 4 lyphe

  4. Sorry, but if you’re not from Cleveland and you don’t understand and haven’t experienced all the decades of sports misery the city has been through, you have no right to stand there on the outside–especially as a callow youth–and judge the city as pathologically scary and unfairly judgmental against LeBron or for hating the Heat. There is no way in hell the average Clevelander will ever be able to root for him or for any team he plays for, and the mere fact that someone like you doesn’t understand it doesn’t make it “ugly.” It’s just Cleveland. I love it, and I always will. I will save my rooting for the players and team that bring us another championship, not someone who promises it for years and then skips off to play with his buddies. And, yeah, we noticed the intensity he’s playing with this year vs. his “who the hell cares, I’ve got one foot out the door anyway even if nobody knows it yet” playoff efforts in a Cavaliers uniform. A city doesn’t forget that–and there’s nothing sick about it. Except our hearts.

  5. I don’t hate Lebron, but I don’t want the Heat to win the championsip either. It’s the principal. I don’t like the idea that a group of the league’s best players can get together in the preseason, pick the city with the best weather, and walk off with a championship less than 1 year later. It cheapens what a championship is supposed to be about. To me, the Bulls represent Chicago; D Rose has been there for a few years, the rest of the team has been building up around him, getting stronger, along with fan support and city excitement. If the Bulls win, and people say Chicago won the championship, it will mean the Chicago Bulls, their fans, and the city itself won a championship. If the heat win? Lebron, Bosh and Wade will have bought/won themselves a championship in a city with warm weather.
