We are now getting a glimpse of what the Bulls truly will be this year - dominant.
We are only 7 games in, I grant you that. But with the cross section of teams the Bulls have played thus far I believe it can be viewed as a microcosm of the upcoming season.
Los Angeles Lakers - Average game for the Bulls against one of the West elite on the Lakers' home court, Christmas Day. Rose game winner. That's what winners do.
Golden State Warriors - Not an unusual let down, but a team they should have beaten.
Sacramento Kings - A good team playing on their home court - couldn't hang with the Bulls.
Memphis Grizzlies - Oh Dear God. This was a team many thought would emerge after their nice playoff run last year. The Bulls made them look like the JV team from my high school.
Atlanta Hawks - Never say die in a game where they could not have shot much worse through two and half quarters.
Detroit Pistons - Even on the road, a team the Bulls were expected to beat and they did.
