Don't call it a Comeback

Though far from a finished project, the Chicago Bulls have surged back to the upper-echelon of the NBA and resuscitated the city's bravado that's been horribly deflated since the late '90s.
Let's just hope Derrick Rose doesn't get a LeBron James-like urge to publicly ditch his hometown in favor of his superstar friends during a moronic hour-long television special.
It's Rose, after all, who's dazzled defenders and floored fans around the league en route to last weekend's All-Star game, where he became the first Bull to start the mid-season exhibition since Michael Jordan's regular appearances. The fact that Rose has practically kept Chicago in cruise control at 38-17 despite injuries to Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer has only solidified his place among this season's MVP candidates.
Most of us understood how good Rose could become, but few of us knew the third-year dynamo would excel this quickly. Just as surprising has been the consistency - and durability - of the oft-criticized Luol Deng. While it's true he's usually the answer when fans are asked who they'd most like to see the Bulls trade, Deng has played at an All-Star level averaging career-highs in points per game and three-point percentage. More impressive, perhaps, is that Deng hasn't missed a game in spite of playing a team-high 39 minutes a game.
Most of the supporting cast has pulled its weight, too. Kurt Thomas has done an admirable job in Noah's absence, while Ronnie Brewer, C.J. Watson and Kyle Korver have been spark-plugs off the bench. Turkish rookie Omer Asik has shown promise as well, going toe-to-toe with the league's best big men without fear.
If Chicago is to be a serious threat to a Celtics-Lakers NBA Finals rematch, the Bulls will have to accumulate more victories away from the United Center, something that's been as difficult as attempting to explain the reason behind Kim Kardashian's celebrity. Then there's that question at shooting guard. Unless, general manager Gar Forman can deliver a Carmelo Anthony-type of talent, the Bulls are best off standing pat before the trade deadline with a less-than-stellar stock of players available at that position.
No matter the potential additions, the Bulls are leap years ahead of the Central Division, three games out of first-place in the Eastern Conference and legitimate title-contenders again.
The Bulls haven't had this much going for them since the NBA was still being televised on NBC. Yes! - in my Marv Albert voice.

  1. Bulls have got to get a tough 2 guard and Lee is not it. Losing to Toronto tonight when we are trying to be a 1 seed is unacceptable. I don't want to be just competitive, I want to contend for a championship.

  2. We can't count on staying ahead of the central while standing pat as basketball teams can rise quickly by drafting the right player, that said I just can't stop beaming about this franchise right now. We are back and we are going to make a run at championships for years.

  4. bulls should trade boozer, a big failure. this is a man who deserves 15 millions a year? GAME 5 agianst the Heat: 5 pts,6 rebs,1/6 FGs, 0 stl, 0 Blks, 0 assists. And all of his playoffs were simply embarassing. If bulls front office would like to waste money, then go on with power forward carlos boozer. with all the GREAT stars ther were out on the free agency of summer 2010 they took the worst! GOOD MOVE, VERY SMART!
