Big Boy Andrew Bynum expects to see his team in the playoffs.

I think the Cavs are a threat to make a run at the playoffs this year and be great in years to come if everything goes their way.

I'm hoping the Bulls can manage to stay healthy this year so they can have a decent run. They still need a big man scoring option though.

Warriors could do some serious damage this year with their lineup. Curry, Igoudala, Barnes, Lee, Bogut, and future 6th man of the year, Klay Thompson.

I'm going to bump this thread now that the 2013-2014 has started. I will say I am really surprised about the 76ers, 3-0 to start off, when no one thought they were going to be good. Michael Carter-Williams has been crazy so far this year, I expected him to be a bust.

Anfernee Hardaway, Grant Hill, Derrick Rose.

Realistically, the Bulls weren't going to seriously contend for a championship this year, and I don't think he was the piece to build around anyway, but he would have been 1a to whoever 1 would have been. Now, this version of the Bulls (2010-present/Tom Thibodeau era) is set to get parted and scrapped to facilitate a rebuild- with no guarantee that Rose will ever be the same player he was upon his return.

The maddening thing about this is that one of their greatest strengths (Tom Thibodeau) will hinder that process. His teams are unbelievably well-coached and will probably be good for a 4-6 seed in the playoffs, which effectively kills any chance of securing a higher pick in the draft. Not good enough to win, not bad enough for the consolation prize. Probably the worst place an NBA team can find itself in.

The other thing to consider is that Rose was cleared well before the end of last season by his doctors as the final part of the rehab for the ACL injury. The idea was that while he wouldn't come back and light the world on fire, it would strengthen both his injured knee, and acclimate the other one to minimize his favoring and overexerting it. He very clearly wasn't himself yet in this young season, and the point was to get that out of the way last year.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I would disagree with you about building around Rose, but I agree about the Bulls being stuck. Rose is the hometown hero. They're stuck with him and need to pray he can recover. I also agree they are going to miss out a rebuilding opportunity, since the east is still pretty terrible and they will definitely make the playoffs.

^ Yep, Thibs isn't the kind of coach that will let them go into tank mode, which is what they should do. Especially with this year's draft.

Hopefully they'll keep playing like they have in the last 3 games and that awkward conversation between Thibodeau and the front office can be averted entirely.

While I agree that Thibs SHOULD let the Bulls tank but won't, you're not guaranteed a good lottery pick even with a bad record. Ibelieve we had a .5% chance of getting the #1 pick the year we did and selected D Rose. Not saying it will happen, but you never know.

I personally think they need to shop Luol Deng and dump Boozer after this year.
