Default Any other Bulls fans feeling uncomfortable with the game 1 overreation?

Honestly, I never put much weight into what the so called "experts" on ESPN say anyway, but today many of them seemed to all but bail on the Heat bandwagon. Which most of them appeared to be readily attached to as recent as Friday.

I don't know about you, but I prefer the Bulls be underdogs and Heat fans overconfident.

I think it's a pretty sure bet that Miami is going to come out with a better effort in game 2, but hopefully the Bulls can withstand their best show and go up 2-0.

Not really. Only the fans are overreacting. The Bulls team never does. They all follow Rose and Thibs mentality of "The next game is what matters right now."

So, no. And another reason.. The way the Bulls won is why I'm not worried. We weren't getting every foul call, we weren't getting stupidly lucky on every shot. We were winning with fundamentals and the strengths that we've always won with. Hustle, hitting the glass, and playing suffocating defense. We've beaten Miami 4 straight times because we outplay them in those three integral categories. That isn't a thing Miami can just FIX overnight. They can't suddenly be better at rebounding. They have a talent issue and gameplanning won't change much.

Ive actually stated many times prior to the game that thibs will establish a masterful gameplan to beat the heat... And I was right, go figure. The bulls are one dedicated mothafvckas... They look at film after the game to pinpoint mistakes, strategies, and ways of improving their overall game. I know every team does this but for some reason the bulls seem like they actually implement their gameplan with flawlessness. Derrick stresses many times during interviews that coach thibs always has a scheme set up for them... and it has clearly shown in game 1.

I think it was Harion who replied to my prediction saying that the heat's allstars will eliminate any gameplan that coach thibs has because of their individual skill... What an imbecile

Hell no, I'm not worried. I've been saying Miami, wade and LeBron, have been overrated the whole season.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm sure Miami will come with a better effort, but the personnel to rebound with us, just isn't there. We have such an advantage on the inside against them it's almost hilarious.

Miami fans can say their team will rebound better, which could be the case, but it's going to take so much of a team effort against us that it is going to jeopardize Miami's biggest strength, which is getting in the open court and getting easy fastbreak points with LeBron and Wade.

So go ahead Miami, have 5 guys go to the defensive glass to keep our bigs off the glass. I'll gladly take our half court defense against LeBron and Wade iso'ing us all day long. Miami is going to have to have their shooters (Jones, Miller, Chalmers, Bibby) step up and knock down shots, but will Wade and LeBron actually trust them to take more shots and move the ball?

It's just 1 win, and we need 3 more to advance, but we won because we played to our strengths and exposed their weaknesses. I don't see that changing.

Vanish? Ive stuck with the bulls the entire season and playoffs, get the fvck outta here. If the heat win, cool let them have their turn bashing the bulls and starting dumb threads. It's a vicious circle, a constant cycle of meaningless rebuttals for temporary satisfaction, bring the hate b!tch

Get back to me when you're done jacking off to pictures of kyle korver and jonas jerebko

I wont vanish, ill happily give credit where it is due.

This is a case of good vs evil, you cant take short cuts to winning championships Lebron, a champion team will always beat a team of champions...And its showing in this series, if you dont think Lebron is at home or wherever he is thinking about the decisions he's made, you are surely mistaken. He would be shitting bricks right about now, at least he's got all that money to spend to drown out his sorrow once the heat go down

Sure ... it's just 1 game. Adjustments will be made, it's a series. D Wade is the Heat's best player and he didn't show up at all. He won't play that bad all series. Heat are still the favorites, IMO

How are the Heat favorites? The Bulls have a better record, HCA and they went 3-0 against the Heat during the regular season.

I didn't see nearly as much overreaction as I did with...certain other team's wins. And to be fair, many people picked Chicago before the series started.

The heat are still in trouble because they still won't respect the Bulls as much as they should in game 2. Miami has had the easiest road so far -- Philly doesn't require comment and Boston was a bunch of humpty dumpties. Atlanta would have beaten Boston in 5-6.

But Miami doesn't know theyve had it easy. They think Boston was the team trying to three-peat. They're mentally lost. Have been all year. Not talented enough not to ever run into adversity. They are now, and they will fold


As others have mentioned, Chicago is on a mission. Good luck to the WC representative trying to stop them.
