I saw the preseason game coming tomorrow against Indiana. Which reminded me of how tough that series was. I wanted to check up on them and the other teams, since you know the teams in your division effect your playoff seed since you play them alot.
The Pacers lose T.J. Ford, Dunleavy, and McRoberts. This hurts their guard play and outside shooting, and takes away another inside goon. David West if healthy makes them stronger inside, but without that guard depth they lose to us 4-1 in last years series imo.
The Pistons got worse, but they sucked anyway.
The Cavs who suck got a little better, Kyrie Irving could be good, and Omri will help aging parker and baronless guard play.
NOW...the Bucks who were injury plagued got a lot better. They actually are probably a sleeper team of sorts to go farther. They got rid of dooling-salmons(ew) and maggette, but they picked up a much better set of guards: Livingston-stephen jackson, Udrih and Dunleavy.
In a perfect game for the Bucks, they have inside presence with Mbah and a healthy Bogut. Jennings, Steph Jax, and a host of guard role players. Kind of scary actually.
Just thought I would share!
Are you serious Bro! These guys think cause we lost Ford and Mcbob that we are actually a worse team than we are now. That is the arrogance of the Bulls fans. Honestly they think that they own the Division. I think they are in for a real suprise this season. I do think Rip will help them, and it does make them bettter if he hasn't lost a step. Pacers need a win tonight . . . I don't care if it's meaningless.
