A really solid article about the unique circumstances of what made the 72 win Bulls so unique. Chemistry, leadership, and expectations are what makes Phil Taylor doubt the 2010 Heat can beat the 72 win record. As a lifelong Bulls fan, I agree.
"...Drew Gooden aggravated his right ankle injury during Monday's practice and will be a gametime decision against the Lakers on Tuesday."
As for Phil Jackson's comments:
"I think he's a playmaker, first and foremost," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said after practice Monday. "I think he's learning scoring in the NBA because we score so many points and it's really an open game. I think that's what he's going to find as he comes along this year. But, really, I think his playmaking, his teamwork and his capabilities of getting the ball to players is really what's an important aspect of his game."
I think Phil is doing a little more than admiring though. Look for him to try and get the ball out of Rose's hands and make someone else direct traffic.
