Rose is not 6'3. He's closer to about 6'1. NBA exaggerates certain players heights. Iverson was listed 6' and he was like 5'11. Steve Nash is listed as 6'3, and he is NOT 6'3.

Rose didn't struggle to blow by LeBron. You obviously didn't understand what you were watching.

The Heat had no respect for the other Bulls players, they sagged off many of the perimeter players (Bogans, Brewer, even Korver) they didn't respect them, none could create off the dribble or finish at the rim v.s. elite athletes and defenders (Bron, Wade, even Chalmers)

Rose was the only one. Rose couldn't attack the rim the way he did v.s. the Pacers and Hawks, because everyone was focal pointing Rose drive to the basket. They wanted Rose doing step backs and shooting jumpers. Miami absolutely played Rose perfectly. I'm giving them the credit.

It was NOT however Rose and Bron on an island. The four other defenders weren't being distracted or held accountable for any other Chicago offensive threat. The rim was being defended well by Bosh, Haslem, and Anthony..

Bron took advantage of the situation dealt. Contest Rose jump shot. NOT THAT BIG of a deal. And certainly not the hand cuffs the way Miami / LeBron fans act like he put on Rose.

It was a situational defensive setting, and Bron did his job. It wasn't some superman effort taking on a player individually, with no help defense. It was Miami's help defense that shunned Rose's penetration game. Rose is so quick he is allowed to look past his man defender, and worry more about the other layers of defense.

In those 2011 playoffs, he had no where to go off the dribble. Seeing as how he had to be a playmaker and scorer to beat Miami, he was forced to hoist jumpers that were being contested by a top five defensive player in the league. And probably that season the best perimeter defender in the game.

What else do you seriously suggest Rose could've done? He was seriously handicapped by the talent on his roster.

Im just saying, no way Rose comes back with that mvp fire he had in 2011.


The Heat should worry about the Knicks way more than the Bulls

the heat last season went 7 games with the boston celtics. you know who else went 7 games with the boston celtics? rookie derrick rose and a poorer bulls, and this was when the celtics were defending champions not a washed up contender like last season.

thats just to give you a perspective of how overrated the heat are.

And the Bulls have to get by the defending champs before they ever see the Thunder so they should be concerned about them.

Probable one of the better responses I've seen on ISH.

Chicago can't beat either in a series. Simple as that.

I really like this Chicago team, but I don't see them beating the Heat 4 out of 7 times. I like the way they play, with hustle and team ball, but their lack of offensive threats would become problematic when the game is on the line.

Exactly this. They don't have enough offensive threats in a series.

A team that lacks "big", but still beat opponents who have the "bigs." Yeah, Miami Heat is the sucks.

Among the legion of LBJ/Kobe/Irving fan boys, Rose must be the most hated. Rose fans never talk shit about your favorite players.

Butt hurt little kids.
