I think we can be. I mean take a look at the situation.

If Rose comes back in the last 15 games of the season and is the same old Derrick Rose, and we finish 4th or 3rd in the East then I don't see why not. Maybe we can get back to the ECF this year if all goes well. And if we have a beast series then we might be able to actually beat the Heat...

No, I don't really think so.

Rose will need a big period of adjusting after so many months being out while he'll have to build chemistry with his new teammates. There are many teams that we'll be able to beat but I don't think we can actually contend this season. You never know though.

Bulls won't even make the playoffs.

:smug:

If they do, first round exit.

Bulls will not contend this year. It's possible but there is a very slim chance and the #1 reason is Rose.

First round exit? Nah.

The bulls aren't even guaranteed to make the playoffs let alone get out of the first round. You're being way too optimistic thinking this team has even the slightest chance to get to the second round

No I expect a first round exit aswell. ACL injuries take one year to be 100% physically and another to be back into NBA 100%.

Be serious man. Geez.
Of course we're a lock for the playoffs. Still a top defending and rebounding team with very good players and good roster. I can't really see how anyone thinks the Bulls won't make the PS.

Whatever though. Everyone has his opinion I guess...

Lmao, no.

Unless Derrick Rose comes back like Adrian Peterson (which I heavily doubt AP's a beast of an athlete), then the Bulls will most likely be a first round exit..

You need to get rid of Boozer and bring someone better. Rose, Deng, Noah are good, but Boozer not really. Your team needs another star / superstar.

It can be done..

LOL its the Eastern Conference we are talking about. The Bulls will make the playoffs for sure. They are the best team in their division anyways, as long as you win your division no matter how bad your record is, you will be in the playoffs.

There is no way someone believes that the Bulls won't make the playoffs.

Its the beginning of the season, they're not guaranteed to make the PS. And they aren't the best team in the central, pacers and the bucks are better. Both have beaten them and hold the current tiebreakers

Pacers will most likely win your division... if so, then is a chance you wont make PS.

LOL!
Whatever you say.

We lost that one game by the Bucks because we committed suicide. I'm pretty sure we're gonna win the next two games as well. And about the Pacers, one game doesn't mean anything. Besides, look at the records...

Saying that the Pacers and especially the Bucks are better than the Bulls just shows ignorance. Really, this argument doesn't deserve my time.

If the pacers knew they were going to be w/o granger for 3 months they would've had a better record. The bulls had all off-season to prepare their game plan, the pacers found out about grangers injury a little before the season started. The pacers are better, i'm not sure about the bucks but the pacers are better. Once grange returns i'm still leaning towards the pacers. Hibbert should be playing better by then and the bench as well. They have the most realistic chance out of all central teams to win the division this year. And even if the bulls do win the division, so what? They're not going to do anything in the PS, you and other bulls fan can be as optimistic as you want, the bulls aren't going to win anything this year

Like we believe we're gonna win the championship...

But don't give me the "And even if the bulls do win the division, so what?" stuff. Just stick with your opinion on who wins the Division cuz I'll remember this thread.
Also, when the Bulls played with the Pacers we didn't have Rip either. JS.

And what exactly would the Pacers do if they knew Granger would be out?? Replace him? Please. You can't replace your best player. You can't afford it.

But I'm used to people like you who believe that the Bulls are nothing without Rose. You don't watch the games so your opinion doesn't hold much water here. I've seen a good amount of Pacers and Bucks games to know what I'm saying. And of course, as almost everyone you overlook coaches' impact so much.

Like I said though, I'll remember this thread. Even if Rose returns in March, I believe we win the Division unless we have key injuries.
