I've never even heard of their player named Teague. Objectively let's be real, they're playing with a one time all star in Noah, a 2 time all star in Boozer who was overrated for years and frequently disappoints in the playoffs, and a bunch of role players and guys I never heard of before this season. We had a legit excuse for losing in the playoffs, missing Kobe, Nash, Blake, and Meeks, having a gimpy MWP, Jamison, playing for the first time in months Hill, and the rest of our roster being pretty awful after Pau, Dwight and occasionally Clark. That's not an issue I'm debating, playoffs were always a loss going in with what we were dealing with as far as injuries go.
I'm saying the Bulls dealt with injuries all season too, but they keep fighting and fighting, and playing hard, they buy into their coach. I'm not going to discount what the Bulls are doing at all just because their perimeter role players are a little better than ours, not saying you are just that I'm for sure not. They have no Rose, Deng, or Hinrich, and Noah is not even healthy but still playing. That'd be like us having no Kobe, no Pau (if Pau was still good), no Blake and a limping Dwight yet winning a playoff series. The Bulls had no business beating a Nets team with Williams, Johnson, Wallace, Evans, and Lopez as a starting 5 and a bench with Watson, Blatche, and Humphries, that was healthy overall. I still don't know how that Nets team can stink it up so bad with that talented roster, got outhustled and outcoached I guess.
In the end I guess my point is if we had a better than below average coach we probably get a better regular season record at least, maybe Kobe isn't run into the ground, maybe role players are used better, taught better, inspired more, who knows. I just saw what great coaching can do for even an injury plagued team this series though, and I wish we had that going forward instead of this clown another season.
