Just wanted to give some respect to the Bulls organization and you the fans. Couldn't have asked for a more competitive series and I'm happy that it involved another storied franchise (Chicago). Just a classic, classic series.
Clearly you guys would have preferred to move on, but you have a whole lot to be excited about in the years ahead. You don't need me to tell you that Derrick Rose has no ceiling. I have a feeling Ben Gordon will be back nailing impossible shots for you once again. TT and Noah will be swatting shots for years to come.
I know there was a lot of controversy with the calls and especially surrounding Rondo and I know quite a few Celtics fans got under your skin for defending our guy. Please take that for what it is: fans looking for the best in our guys. I still don't understand all the nuances about what makes a flagrant call or what doesn't, but at the end of the day it doesn't matter anymore. Agree or disagree with the league's decision, both teams had dozens of chances to win or lose the series.
The Bulls proved that they are already a very, very good team and I think they've proved that they have a great future as well. I've enjoyed sharing thoughts with most you here on Blog-a-Bull and on CelticsBlog. So hats off to you and best of luck this offseason and beyond. Cheers.
