The Bulls aren't that good..... They've done nothing but be average all year

You keep on saying that all year but do you realize when their starting 5 has played together without injury they are 21-5. And don't act like the hawks wanted them in round 2. Raps or wiz was a much better choice. Bulls probably wont beat the cavs...but they will give them a hell of a series

They haven't exactly been dominating the Bucks.

Then again, the Hawks haven't been dominating the Nets... the Cavs haven't been dominating the Celtics.

Strange shit in the east right now

And? They have a team full of all-stars and is currently the No. 1 seed.

Talking about a weak path to the ECF/Finals...

And Al Horford is their best player.

scrub bench has surprisingly got us out of alot of jams .. I think what we are all missing here is the fact that Beal and Wall are entering that next level (Splash Brother Backcourt level)

Beal is not only playing with an edge but he's sharpening up in post game interviews.... acting like he gives a damn .. Less shooting from Wall and more from Beal and the sky is the limit for this team and Gortat has looked great so far it will interesting matchup for sure. That said, Hawks trashed on us this season but we are playing different ball right now Pierce has released the beast in these young pups.

You are gettin some replies here ;-)

I wouldn't call it "free pass" since they got this confortable situation after winning 60 games in RS.
