We analyze and discuss how the Bulls fell short in Game 3 despite their valiant effort. What needs to change heading into Monday's Game 4? Even though the series is far from over, we also examine the Bulls chances against the Heat in the future with a full roster and try not to sulk in this year's lost opportunity. Be sure to also listen to the very end to help celebrate the show's birthday!
The battered, but not broken Bulls stunned the rested, but rusty Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, and we try to make sense of it all. Listen in as we bask in the glory of arguably the greatest two game stretch in Bulls playoff history. How is this happening? We don't really know, but no hyperbole is safe. One game doesn't make a series, but does one game have us drinking the kool-aid? We also fulfill our contractual obligation to talk about Derrick Rose for 10 minutes too long.
The Bulls Show MEME of the Week (1 of 2 below)
How do you celebrate the most improbable playoff win in Miami? With a rapper in the club, of course... and in Vlad Rad's case, dressed like a tourist in his licensed team apparel. I went and got the 2nd picture from the future, obviously. - Nillz, Bulls Show (1st photo via Rip Hamilton's Instagram).
Our new "Big 3" talk about the highs & lows between games four and five, and the uncertainty surrounding game 6. After a few days removed from Saturday's triple overtime thriller, listen in to see if we can provide proper (and coherent) perspective on the Bulls epic comeback. Also, is Thursday night a must win for the Bulls? Will this be our last recording during the season? Could/should the offseason feature a blockbuster deal for Kevin Love? Find out our thoughts on all this and more in episode 42 of the Bulls Show.
While the site was down this week, The Bulls Show launched their latest as Mitch & Nillz bring you "Grit & Guts". Note that it was recorded right after Game 2 the other night so keep that in mind as you press play for some breakdown of the Bulls-Nets 1st round playoff series. Game 3 is ongoing at post time so be sure to follow them on Twitter (@TheBullsShow & @MitchDontLie) for live game updates and hilarious tweets. This episode was a great one that not only touched on Bulls-Nets, Kirk Hinrich's "grit" and Joakim Noah's "guts", but also the ongoing D-Rose D-Rama and a great analysis of poor front office management. "Grit & Guts" not only features the stylings of Mitch & Nillz but also special guest, winner of The Bulls Show fantasy league, and a "tastemaker" homie of GWHH — Eugene (who needs a cool nickname). I enjoyed Euge's thoughtful commentary to the 3-man weave, how Mitch & Nillz constantly ripped on him, and the personal shoutout as well!
