BULLS SEASON ENDS
“There were a lot of times this season when we could have cashed our chips in. But we worked hard and made the most of it”.- Ben Wallace
Amen. The Bulls proved to the entire NBA that they are the hardest working team in the league. And they never gave up. How easy it would have been to fold up after game 3 and start telling themselves what a great season they had. To start thinking about summer plans and healing injuries. But they brought it again. And again. And then last night came up short. In the end, it’s probably what should have happened. After all, the Pistons are on their way to their 5th consecutive conference final.
Now tucked in the recesses of their minds the Bulls have a stunning sweep of the current champs and a 2nd round series where they proved to themselves they can persevere through the toughest of times. And play with any team in the league. The way they compete is extraordinary. Such a joy to watch; such pride to be a fan of a team like this.
“We went from a bottom-five team to a top-eight team in two years. That is not easy to do. We did it with young players and they deserve a lot of credit.” – Scott Skiles
As do you and John Paxson. Now comes the lottery on Tuesday, and the trickiest offseason yet for Paxson. The need for a low post player is evident. How will he acquire one? If by trade, who does he deal?
