The Chicago Bulls are clicking on all cylinders. They already have nine more wins than last year with thirteen games remaining on the schedule.
Their 50-19 record is tied for best in the East.
Not only are the Bulls beating average teams, but they are also beating elite teams. The Bulls are 8-3 against Boston, San Antonio, Dallas, LA Lakers and Miami.
They Bulls have MVP front runner and future Hall of Fame point guard in Derrick Rose, and are the best defensive team in the NBA.
All of these positives combined with the Bulls clicking and healthy at the end of the season should culminate in a long postseason run to the finals. Right?
Unfortunately no, though nothing would make me happier than to see Derrick Rose hoisting up the Larry O’Brien trophy, it is simply not going to happen this year.
Here is why.
