Once again, much of the posting on the game threads was to trash their own players. It's hard to tell who Bulls fans hate more: KG, Piercne, and Rondo or Hinrich, Deng and Salmons. They just aren't a happy bunch over there in Bulls land. Some entertaining stuff here. I hope you enjoy this edition of "Comments from the Other Side."
This is going to be ugly. The Celtics are going to try and embarrass the Bulls because they want to prove that series was a fluke without KG.
Unless we get another 36-11 from Rose or 35 from Salmons, and Noah pulls down 20 rebounds this isn't going to be fun.
So Boston to win by 20+ and Vinny to get another step closer to being fired?
If they keep the Celtics running, they have a shot. The chances of that are small.
We will see what kinda heart this team has tonight!!!
Unfortunatley they don't have much at the moment but lets hope they show up to play tonight!
Upsets happen in the nba all the time .. The crowd must be a factor
I hope Luol Deng has something left in the tank after playing 52 minutes last night.
I hope we win. I want us to win. We need a win.
I don't think we will win though.
Is this Vinny's last game?
Is Lawrence Frank house hunting in Chicago?
I got three words... We are dead
The BULLS are going to need all sorts of miracles to beat that punk team of the New England area.
Kg is too intense for us.
We'll lose by at least 30, guaranteed. Actually we might lose by 40. This is such a monstrous mismatch. The only question is if we'll break the 70 point barrier and also will they break the 110 barrier. VDN should just tell Rose, Noah, and Deng not to suit up. Why risk injury is such a forgone conclusion. Yes, this is what its come too this year.
What I want to see: Hard Foul on Rondo. I haven't forgotten he threw a punch at Miller and threw Kirk into a scorer's table.
This is an easy win for the Bulls.
If there is one game not worth watching this season its going to be this one.. We might as well start Hunter/Pargo/Johnson/Miller/Gray and let our other guys get an extra day of rest.. Or maybe they can just have the night off and go practice or something.
This is going to get really ugly. However, I got used to all those blowouts, so I'd like to add another one to my collection.
Just like the playoffs...rondo eats rose alive. Celtics win by 15+.
It's games like this that really help the tank.
How the Bulls will win is going to defy all logic, reasoning, and competence. Just know that it will happen. Just have to think outside the box.
Bulls win by 14, 130-99, Gibson with 20 and 15, Rose with a real triple dub (not those weak ones Rondo gets) with 25, 13, 10. Luol with some clutch three pointers and toughness.
KG continues doglike antics, bites Noah. Gets put to sleep after the game.
I don't care about the score of this game. What I do care about is this team not letting KG walk all over them and run his mouth all night. Hard fouls please.
If the Bulls lose by only 10, it's a victory of some sort.
Someone pop KG in the gob, preferably you Joakim, and I'll class this one as a win.
100 - 45 I am expecting us to break our own record tonight. If not tonight, then definitely against the lakers - for least points ever scored in an NBA game
I thought I was being pessimistic, but you just showed me I could be a lot worse. Thank you for that.
Hopefully they won't think they need to give 100% to stop our anemic offense and we can hang around for a while.
Bulls win 104-102 on a Pargo jump shot, James Johnson injures KG
Rondo would suck if it hadn't been for the Celtic;s Big Three. I can't wait for the day he's got to play without them.
We are talking about Celtics defense here - especially with KG in the lineup. They will lockdown Rose and let others take turn with crap-shoot/brickfest and it will be in Celtics' bag after the 1st qtr. I am expecting TON OF BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSS by the 3rd qtr.
Which Celtic shows the Bulls up on national TV? That seems to be the theme lately; have a joke on the Bulls. My pick goes to Ronda.
Way too obvious. It will be a scrub like Eddie House or Marquis Daniels Doc will give his backups big run when they have the lead.
Nice to see that I'm not the only one that thinks there's a possibility the Bulls could lose by over 40 points, one of the poll options is Celtics by 42 and 7% of respondents have chosen that.
Noah better not get called for a loose ball foul all night. Perkins is literrally putting 2 hands in his back and shoving him 3 feet away.
wtf was Funk talking about after Pierce's first FGA? He “looked tired”? Is he serious?
Love what Miller did.
HAHAHA PAY BACK RONDO YOU LITTLE ****
Rondo with the fake but BRAD WITH THE REVENGE!!!!
BRAD, REVENGE IS SO SWEET
That was my favorite Brad Miller play of the year
Brad should have stepped on Rhonda afterwards
Rondo should have been put on his arse months ago.
Rose has to watch out for Perkins now
So that's a flagrant, but Rondo doing the same thing wasn't?
Thanks for the confirmed bias NBA officials.
Wow, good point. And Rondo's was still worse since he actually got Brad in the side of the face.
Doug Thonus just called out Rondo for laying on the ground for 10 seconds after Miller fouled him. He also makes an excellent point that he was T’d up for a lesser foul than what Rondo did to Miller
John Salmons has what it appears to be a career high 3 assists.
I love it when Noah instigates! You know KG wanted to punch him.
Ragin' Ronda reaches in a lot.
Deng wants to show everyone that it wasn't ONLY KG who missed the playoffs, He wasn't there as well and probably would have made the difference.
The defense isn't good, but the offense looks WAY less retarded than usual.
One thing you can learn from the Celtics are how to run double and triple screens. Of course wed get call for moving screens.
Damn Boston hacks at everything.
Looks like House is the one to get punked on National TV, not the Bulls.
Haha Noah taunting Garnett. I love it.
LMao kg goaltended Noah's shot after the whistle
C'mon Noah, make him earn those 2 points
(actually I just wanted to see KG get clobbered for once)
Let's see who's bench is worse
I don't think I want to know the answer to that.
Salmons getting owned by Scalabrine now?
Every time I watch SHeed against any teams, he is usually at the 3pt line but today, he has been mostly down in the post? WHy?????
Vinny giving James Johnson a talking to. Probably about hair conditioners or something.
I really **** hate Garnett.
If ever there was a game for JJ to unleash Hell, its this one
Preferably a chop KG’s skinny neck
Drose on the oop, Rondo hits him no call. When will the kid get a call from the refs?
I think I got it, Rondo benefits greatly by playing with Allen/KG/Pierce, and Perkins benefits by Rondo benefiting off of those 3. If my math is correct that makes Kendrick Perkins the worst player in the history of the nba
Defensively rondo is able to gamble all the time because he has great interior defenders behind him
Deng is 5-15, just KILLING Pierce man!
Pierce faking an injury? Quick get the wheelchair!!!
I hope Pierce is ok. If it was KG I would be hoping its career threatening.
Pierce is destined to be a dying man on a soap opera
Salmons has 9 assists!!! I cant remember one pass of his.
Obviously someone has been counting his passes to the Celtics as assist...
*waiting for Pierce to come back in the 4th to prima donna it up*
Perkins always looks mad, he could hit a 3 pointer while fouled and make the extra point after and still look pissed off
Perkins is such a bitch.
Yeah, but at least he isn't a clown, fake intensity loser like KG. Perkins is just an old fashioned bully. Oakley-like.
Rondo with another flop Hate that guy!
Then he does the unneccary under his leg dribble pass on the fast break
What I hate even more is how overrated his defense is he plays defense the same way iverson does, and everybody calls iverson a defensive liabilty, yet Rondo is somehow the next GP…
I officially hate our announcers now
I can't stand Rondo
I hate him but I respect him
Kinda like Rodman.
God I hate Rondope
Blowout is on. Commence 'stop trying', wetting their shorts, and loss of confidence.
Celts do get away with LOT OF hacks and fouls.
LOL Ragin' Ronda hitting stepback jumpers on us. Priceless.
Kirk Hinrich is a great ball handler
He ought to be for all the dribbling around aimlessly he does.
And Hinrich gets called for the same reach in that Rondo has been getting away with all night.
Boston is too consistent for the Bulls
We actually look pretty sharp at times, it's just that Boston is a lot better
We is bad.
I hate Kirk's complaining. I hate his stupid overdribbling. I hate his inability to run an offense. I hate his stupid face. F*** Kirk Hinrich.
The entire Boston team can set excellent screens That’s a direct reflection of their coach
We have the worst TV announcer in basketball the worst Radio play by play man in basketball and the worst PA announcer in basketball.
We have the sleepiest crowds
Where are those creepy fans, aka the "6th man" from the commercial?
Probably in jail
Vinny's postgame: "We gave good effort" "The guys competed"
Which soundboard line is Vinny gonna go with tonight!?!
Maybe Sheed's "Both teams played hard!"
Brad is out of here after this year and looks like his level of caring matches that. His objective this game was probably just to get Rondo back. Mission accomplished en route to getting smashed on the scoreboard.
Anyone find it odd that none of the Celtics cares that Brad hit Rondo
I heard some of the Celtics don't really like him
Yea, I know what you mean, I've heard that as well
But I still don’t think they’ll let that stand, no matter who the teammate is
Well if it was like Ray Allen they would have been crowding Brad
You don't think the "retribution" would have come a little quicker if they cared?
The coaches looked upset, but I didn’t see any of the other players try to get in Brad’s face or anything
Maybe they all think he's a little punk, too
Of course, the idea of KG and Sheed thinking of anyone else as a punk is kind of funny in a way.
We're fighting to not lose by 30!
How are there still fans in the seats?
Cause there's still beer at the bar, they didn't come to watch the game anyway
Lol @ Celtics announcers having a field day on Aaron Gray.
"He's so large...he should be allowed to have 3 digits on his jersey...he should be #345"
I think it's pretty safe to say that rondo > rose. My jaw dropped when people were acting like it was a no brainer before the game. Well guess what, league wide people consider rose and rondo about equal. Personally, I think rondo is better than him.
Put Rondo on this team and see what happens. There's no doubt he's a better passer and rebounder but there's no way he could play to his strengths on this crap team
Ronda's PER is currently 20.0
That's amazing. His PER in the title year was only 16.
Last year, his PER was 18.
It has nothing to do with the other guys. Ronda is just flat out improving on his own, and is probably one of the best defenders in the game today.
I hate that I have to defend this little b****. I hate his guts for being the sleazebag he is. But IMO, he just is better than Rose, no two ways about it.
I agree Rondo is far better than Rose and that he could succeed anywhere at this point of his career. But the benefit of playing with all-stars is in how he developed.
I have tickets to Thursdays knicks game. I used to look forward to bulls knicks. Now it’s like punishment.
