I think so. If Boozer continues to be a non-factor on offense, Rose will find it difficult to be a one man team with 6'6" Shumpert slowing him down and Chandler defending the paint

I'd say the opposite. The Knicks matched up well against Heat after that Melo trade, stunning the big three in Miami in March. The Bulls tough defense will shut down the Knicks though.

Um, no. It was one meaningless regular season game. Chicago and Boston got the better of Miami in the regular season as well, and how'd that play out?

Knicks are now the 2nd best team in the East after Miami.

Knicks have a better front court and Baron Davis is about equal to Rose in terms of being a PG so sure. Bulls might be better off letting Rip handle point and Rose play SG

Rose is obviously better then Davis.

However a healthy B.Diddy is a better Leader/Passer/PlayMaker then Rose is right now.

Davis was dropping 7-8 dimes per game for what like 10-12+ seasons?

I feel these 3 teams been the class of the east with Boston falling substantially (5th seed at best).

Anyways as i look at the matchup what's gonna be interesting to see is if Rose can score & penetrate at will with Chandler down low. Also if Boozer continues to play like shit Stoudermire is gonna have a field day anytime they matchup.

My guess is NOT. Which brings me to a Miami vs Knicks EFC. They are the team that best matchup with the Heat, Anthony on Lebron with Chandler protecting the paint.

Having said that i think the Knicks are 1 year away still & Bron Bron will get a chance at redemption.
