Chicago Bulls: Why the Rest of the NBA Should Be Very Worried Right Now

Going into this year we all knew the Bulls would be good. Most thought the Heat would be better. And possibly the Celtics. And maybe the Knicks?

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.

Los Angeles Clippers - A sleeper team in the West with the addition of Chris Paul. Rose made All-Defensive 2nd Team Paul look old, slow and average.

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.
