4. Heat has no one to match up with Deng. Haslem? Miller? You're not serioius!
5. Bibby is a non-entity; Bogans is light on offense but plays shut-down defense. (Will be interesting to see what he can do with Wade). Bogans will hit the occasional 3.

Bench: Goes to the Bulls - who get solid contributions from Gibson, Asik (especially on interior defense) and Korber. Watson can spell D Rose for short periods. Miami's bench is pretty pitiful.

Coach: No contest. Bulls

If the bulls get solid defense (like they played on Thursday night), then their 9 deep rotation should stifle the Heat.

I like the Bulls in an excellent series.

Why would you compare Rose and James in match ups? Neither will be guarding each other. It will be Wade or Chalmers on Rose. Remember the shut down defense Wade played against Kobe the 2 regular seasons game they played? Wade vs Rose should equal each other out.

Wade vs Boozer?! It is Boozer vs Bosh...Bosh should get the edge in this matchup. Boozer havent been playing extremely well in the post season. No where near his season averages. Edge goes to Bosh.

Noah vs Joel Anthony or Big Z. Edge goes to Noah. Nothing to argue about that.

Deng vs Lebron. Lebron gets the edge. Pretty much self explanatory. Edge goes go Lebron.

Bench: Equal. Miami have solid contributor also. Joel Anthony's defense, James Jone big 3s, Juan Howard, Mike Miller, Eddie House, Mario Chalmers.

The bulls have edge for coach.

Here is how I see it (and this is with honest die hard bulls fan bias aside - I'm a realist).

Bulls are way deeper than Heat - I don't think even LeBron himself would refute that. Sure LBJ and Wade together far outmatch the combo of whomever you want to call our big 2 stars (Rose/Boozer, Rose/Deng, Rose/Scalabrine, Scalibrine in uni/Scalibrine in suit), but basketball is a team sport and that is the reason LeBron left Cleveland, his team sucked.

I look at it this way though. Wade/James only have each other to count on (maybe Bosh too, he's been left out a lot I feel like). The Bulls have Rose, and Deng, and Boozer (on the right nights) and Noah, and Korver, and Gibson.... ect. I'd play the zLaw of averages, you'd probably rather have 7-8 guys who consistently score 15 pts or more a game rather than 2 or 3 who get you 25-35 a game but everyone else is like 8-10. If either LeBron or Wade goes flat, even for a half, their entire offense suffers. If Rose goes flat for a half, there are 7 other guys who can keep the offense afloat. I'm not saying he can suck and we can still win - I'm just saying the short droughts will determine who can sneak ahead.

The Heat have 2-3 of the best defenders in the league but I think the Bulls TEAM defense is much MUCH stronger. A lot hard to score on a team who plays well as a group of 5 instead of 2-3 guys who are just good, all you have to do is get the ball to someone who isn't being guarded by one of them.

I dunno, I feel like its gonna be a BATTLE for sure, it can easily go either way IMO, I won't discount the Heat have a real good chance if they play it right. But even as a #1 seed, the Bulls thrive on being the underdogs and that's what it feels like they are here. Don't count them out by any means, they came to play, and play as a team, not 3 superstars who thought they could just walk in and own it.

oh don't even start. I said I think it's going to be a VERY close series, wouldn't be surprised to see a repeat of the BOS-CHI 1st round stuff from 2 yrs ago where every game went to OT or even 2-3OT. But yes, I think my Bulls will rely on the fact they have a team around them and one hell of a coach guiding them and that will be the difference maker.
