And 1

In case the refs need another reason to blow the wistle on the Bulls, please call me for a "MAKE UP RANDOM FOUL, CAN'T BE ON LEBRON OR WADE" on Wade while shooting a 3.

I thought we got rid of these fixed games

This is why I stopped watching this wothless p.o.s. league.

Indiana's 2012 Class Ranked #1

Considering the Class of 2011 hasn't even come into school yet, this may be a little premature. But hey, it's good publicity for the University, right?

Granted, our last highly ranked class is still developing - if Christian Watford, Mo Creek, and Jordan Hulls don't make The Leap next year, it's doubtful they ever will. And that class was rated top five, easy.

I like the idea of Yogi Ferrell coming in and learning from Hulls during Jordy's senior year, and then taking the reins himself, but I still think next year with Cody Zeller is going to be very make or break for the Crean era at Indiana.

Dwight Howard A Bull?

So, I was stumbling around the internet today (and no, not with stumble upon), when I found multiple references to the Bulls being one of, if not the, front runner to land Dwight Howard this offseason. Essentially, the Bulls would have to trade their first two first round picks this year, a first round pick next year, and two of either Noah, Gibson, Boozer, or Asik, and possibly either Deng or Brewer as well. A lot of the talk has been that it would have to be a package of Noah, Gibson, and Deng with the three first rounders for Howard and either Hedo Turkoglu or Gilbert Arenas. Apparently Orlando is going to want to dump one of those two huge contracts. Either way, it is very conceivable that next years starting Bulls roster looks like this:

PG: Derrick Rose
SG: Gilbert Arenas
SF: Ronnie Brewer
PF: Carlos Boozer
C: Dwight Howard

I'd prefer that if we were giving up three players that we NOT take on Arenas or Hedo, but oh well if you have to. It's a lot to give up, but the guy you are getting may actually be the overall most valuable player in the NBA.

Bulls Panic Meter is High But I Believe They Will Likely Win Tonight

Why is everyone talking like the Bulls are out of this one? ESPN has already discounted the Bulls. If you ask them its already guaranteed to be a Heat-Mavs finals, even though the series is 2-1. ESPN has determined that the Bulls just can't keep pace with the Heat. I don't buy it. The simple fact to me is that the Bulls have played two very BAD games.

The Bulls have shot a combined 37% in the last two games and still have been right in the games until the very end, despite the Heat shooting around 49% in those very same games. In game 2, the Bulls shot 34%! Had they shot a measly 42% they would have won that game!

WHEN the Bulls start shooting around 44% they will win. And you can run around and say the Bulls are shooting that bad because of the Heat defense, but that's not true. The Heat's D is good, but not that good. The Bulls will more than likely revert back to the norm, just as the Heat will too. Don't be surprised if the Bulls win the next two.

And to go back to ESPN for a moment, does anyone else hate Michael Wilbon aside from me? He tries to act like he's a Chicago fan but he is just some guy who USED to be from the area and has lost any all connections with it, including the sports teams.

Anyways, my predictions for the games:

Game 4: Bulls win 96-86
Game 5: Bulls win 91-84
Game 6: Heat win 101-98 OT
Game 7: Bulls win 94-92

Series: Bulls win 4-3.
