What's up people! My name is Jaipal and today I'm going to bring you my knowledge, thoughts, and opinions on the Chicago Bulls. In my second post of the day, I've decided to talk to you about the Chicago Bulls, as they are one underrated team in the playoffs as of this moment. I will post three things today, so enjoy!
Anyways, the Chicago Bulls are the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference, currently playing against the 4th seed Brooklyn Nets (Chicago leads series 3-1). Now the Bulls aren't as dominating without Derrick Rose, who, by the way, is physically approved (even by his doctors) to play in the NBA. But the mental fortitude of doing so won't be so easily taken by Rose's mind. He just isn't prepared mentally. Just wait for the next season. The starting lineup for the Bulls: Kirk Hinrich, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah (who is playing hurt), LOL, and Richard Hamilton. Let's start with Hinrich. He's a veteran currently playing his 10th season in the NBA. He is consistent in his game by dishing assists everywhere left and right. He has a consistent on the top of the key shot (almost 3-point range). Those goggles of his sure are spexy (Word Play!). Carlos Boozer is awesome. You can always hear him yelling as he runs up and down the court. The referees better beware when he celebrates because he might just punch you in the balls (ask Danny Crawford). He is a mid-range shooter and good from inside the paint. He has been one of the key players for the Bulls, carrying them to a 3-1 lead over the Nets. The player who still hasn't yet come alive for this team is LOL. He has been missing every shot, averaging about 3 to 4 points per game in this series. He's having the same performance Charles Barkley had when he played for the Suns. He had one game against the Rockets (back when Kenny Smith and Hakeem Olajuwon played for them) and he was 0 for 10 from the field with 0 points. The Suns lost by 36 points to the Rockets. Hell yeah! LOL has got to get back together because his performance is poop as of this moment (I have refrained from cursing, but I think you guys might like it, tell me in a comment). Joakim Noah is the arguably the best passing center in the NBA (Marc Gasol is also close contender). What he delivers on the court are offensive boards, putbacks, and second-chance points. The dude is an offensive machine, specifically calibrated to dominate inside the paint. His most distinguishing feature is that ponytail of his (he's got just as much swag as James Harden). One of the eldest players on the Bulls is Richard Hamilton (the oldest player on the Bulls is Nazr Mohammed in his 15th season) who is an extremely talented shooter. He plays shooting guard, and when you see him play, you can tell why. The dude is a J-er and he wears this protective face mask, although I'm not sure why.
Notable players off the bench would be Taj Gibson and NATE ROBINSON. Taj Gibson is a back-up power forward who is well known for his excessive jams. He averages about 11 points per game and also 8-9 rebounds. NATE ROBINSON is a phenomenal player, especially in that 4th game if any of you saw. He almost beat the record with the most points scored by a Bull in a quarter (mj: 24; NR: 23). The dude was extremely crucial to their win. At 5'9", this dude is underestimated due to his size, but that seems to be his defining aspect. He brought the Bulls back when they were down 14 in the 4th quarter and went on to beat the Nets in a triple-overtime game. Because of that performance, they should construct a statue of NATE ROBINSON right next to Michael Jordan, except make it taller than Jordan to bring about the irony. It was one of the greatest playoff games I have ever seen.
I'm going to post another thing right after this. See ya!
