What a joke of a performance. The Pacers didn't even bother to match Chicago's intensity.
Dunleavy, Hibbert, and McRoberts can take a hike as far as I am concerned.
Danny proved that he's better than a lot of people on here thought. He may not be top tier like Kobe, Lebron, Rose, but he's among the top of the 2nd tier players.
Add to or one of our guys (PG) become equal to or a little better and then we really have something.

God I hate the offseason.
Thibodeau's best move of the series was simply sticking with Rose. Everything fell into place after that. It sucks that it had to end like this, but I can't remember a time I was more excited about basketball. Let's be smart in the offseason, continue to develop Paul, DC, and Tyler and make a better run next season. Constructive criticism will come later, as the emotions die down.
Bulls out played us but we were still fine.... and in came a ridiculous amount of threes. lol. Oh well, fun season.
I had to work so I got in just before half time, so someone clue me in.
Why was the game thread closed and where is the this mysterious live chat link?
-Hats off to the Pacers for exceeding our expectations and making us believe in the team again, in the post-season and next season
-I hate Carlos Boozer, but I also hate Noah, probably more
-Bulls came off somewhat classless (hey, just like their fans) for running up the score by shooting 3's with plenty of time on the shot clock in the last 5 minutes and up by a ton.
-Hibbert pulled another disappearing act in the biggest game of his career. Can't win a series when so much hinges on the play of your big man, and he can't control his fouls and can't hit shots that a man of his physicality should be making.
-Bird should make Vogel the permanent coach tomorrow, so they can get to work on the draft.
That said, I do have this sense as well. Certainly the experience helps immensely, but I just feel like we're more players away than what I did before. I only see two definitive starter quality talents on a good team. A lot of solid bench players though..
I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.
Bulls got hot.. Not much else to say. Can sometimes recover when one guy is hot but when 4 guys are making 3s its just one big headache.
I want to know what Granger said to the Bulls
He is gettting ripped on the Bulls board , getting called a punk and classless
Sittin on top of the world!
well, it was a semi-fun series to watch, if not frustrating almost every game.
I'm still mystified as to how the team can come out so flat and uninspired for what was their final game. Worst showing of the series, actually. They only looked alive at the beginning of the 2nd half. Oh well.
Our shooting is atrocious, and we're young. Fix the salaries situation, and get a true PG that can get 10+ assists a game. In fact, i'd replace every guard on the team, but then I'm usually too aggressive when i'm losing.
best wishes to all in the off season.
I don't think everyone should be so down on McBob, he didn't seem "right" the entire series. His first playoffs and he was hampered by some type of injury.
He should not have retaliated after Noah started it, but how many of you guys would have loved to hit Noah upside his fool head?

where is the postgame press conference, NBATV is not showing it
If we see next year what we've seen this year post-O'Brien along with near-50 wins and home court in the first round, count me in for the ride. I think this goal is realistic.
