The Chicago Bulls are clearly on the come up, but the question now is: Where do they stand in comparison to their Easter Conference competition?
How far will the Bulls go in the Eastern Conference Playoffs?

Tough question until the seeding is settled, but the Bulls will go as far as they can until they face the Knicks or Celtics. Either of those teams eliminate the Bulls in the playoffs.
^The Knicks? Seriously?
Wait..are you serious?
1st in Points allowed, 1st in FG% D, 1st in 3PT FG% D, 2nd in assists allowed and 1st in Rebounding. That’s with Boozer playing defense most of the time. Bulls have DRose, who nobody at his position can guard him. ECF is a given at this point, since they’ll most likely have the #1 seed at season’s end.
As much as I love the Bulls and want them to make it to the Finals there’s something holding me back… They play good defense but so much of their offense depends on Derrick Rose and over a 7-game Playoff series any decent team is going to find a way to slow him down…
hahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha…. .whew..nope not done hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!
he said KNICKS! HAHAHHAHA
ppl seriously dont give boozer and deng enough credit
Been saying they’ll lose in the second round because of the inexperience. If they get Miami in the second round, I think the Heat will take the series.
… and, yes, I know they haven’t lost to Miami this season. I’m just a little conspiratorial when it comes to the Playoffs.
Ryne’s probably got everyone looking up the word “conspiratorial” now….including me.
To those laughing at Orange, the Bulls are 0-2 vs the Knicks this season…just saying.
The Easter Conference is the end of April right? Just kidding they will make a hefty 2nd round opponent
The Easter conference must be some kind of church league…
I think people are underestimating the Knicks…They’ll give any team in the east trouble and I think they’ll suprise some people.
They will maybe make it through to the finals but i think they will lose there. They arent experienced enough as a team to make it that far and win a championship. I want them to but i just dont think its going to be this year. I bet they see the Heat in Easten Conference finals
riiiiiight…and the knicks record against the cavs? playoffs will be a whole nother monster, and as shallow as the knicks are, i dont see 2 wins in a second round for them
Bulls fans better brace themselves for the sWEEP at the WMFA this April 12 on TNT.
Knicks will go fishing early!!!!
ECF….and first of all, the new look Knicks have had some 9 games togethers 7 considering the Chauncey knee injury, so anyone thinking they can judge there future sucess on the few losses they’ve had is completely fooling themselves….anyways yeah, the Bulls have a chance to see the ECF. They just play like they are ready for it, in fact I’m not so certain they don’t steal 1st place and homecourt advantage out East
The Bulls will go as far as D Rose takes them. That said, the bulls have the best defense in the league and win close games in the half court which is crucial in the playoffs. If they are healthy they have one of the best froncourts in the L, a great bigman rotation and a bench that is arguably the best in the league. Deng is severely underrated. Barring injuries, they can make a big run to the Finals. Experience will be a factor as well.
Rose is good but he is no wade an def not no Labron
He does get to the line enough an in the playoffs we know Labron an wade gets all the calls in the playoffs
