I Think We're Selling Ourselves Short...

I'm not saying we will be a title contender next year, but we will make the playoffs and be a tough matchup for someone.  Most of the teams that got better in the East were already ahead of us

Think about it for a second..  Boston adds Sheed, Orlando gets Vince, the LeBrons pick up Shaq, but what did 4- 6 really do?  Atlanta looks like they will come out better, since they kept Bibby and picked up Crawford.  But Philly and Miami did absolutely nothing to get better, unless u figure that Brand will actually stay healthy the whole year.  Now for the guys below us, Detroit might have snatched up BG, but they have no guys inside.  U not doing anything with Kwame Brown as ur best low post option, almost forgot about Charlie V, even though he isn't really an inside player.  And their D will be atrocious.  Toronto defintely looks to have gotten better, signing Hedo was big for them.  Washington getting Arenas back is huge, if he can stay healthy, but they have a team full of guards and none of em r really all that good except Caron, and they all are injury prone. Do Charlotte, Indiana, NJ, or Milwaukee really scare u?  They don't scare me.

I'll take a year of aging from D.Rose, Ty, and Noah, a full year of Salmons and Miller, a healthy Deng, and 2 more than servicables rookies against any of those teams.  I'm going to predict that we may have lost a 20 pt scorer, but will still have not only one but 2 next season.  Salmons will average 20 and D.Rose will average 20.  I don't know what his numbers were last year but if D.Rose can hit around 37% of his 3's, he scores 20 easily.  We are gonna be more than just respectable.  This team will prove a lot of people wrong in their thinking.  And end up a very attractive destination for young vets looking for a run at some rings.  Fellow Bulls fans keep ur head up.

My predicted Top 8 for the East:

1) Boston

2) Cleveland

3) Orlando

4) Atlanta

5) Toronto

6) Chicago

7) Washington

8) Miami
