The cavs will continue to be talked about, they are our team. This a thread for comments on teams around the league.

The intensity is starting to pick up.

I will start by talking about the Bulls. I watched them destroy the Hawks tonight. This is a young,skilled,energetic team.

Offensively you have no answer for Rose. Boozer scores at will against most post players. Deng has played out of his mind this year. He has been more than a role player for sure.

They play defense and are deep at every position. This team will BEAST for years to come.

I just saw the replay of Bynum taking out Beasely, he drilled his ass.

You kneed that presence around the hoop. That being said, he probably deserved one game. I don't know about 2 but I guess that is splitting hairs.

Chicago has the PG, Bogans is a defensive minded 2 that doesn't need the ball, Deng has the freakish length that makes him a nice defensive player and an underrated shooter and finisher. Then you get to the bigs. You have an offensive talent that can play on the blocks and shoots a high percentage. Boozer is no slouch on the boards either, and you team him up with a defensive/rebounding force in Noah, that can also quickly put up 10-15-20 points because he moves so well off of Rose's playmaking.

Your bench has the shooter in Korver, a verstitle wing in Brewer, a solid backup big in Gibson, grizzled banger Kurt Thomas. IMO they are the team to beat.

ETA
Rookie coach, but one with plenty of playoff chops and a focus on defense. Nice team.
