Bulls/Celtics Series – Retrospect

2 05 2009

What a great series. So many ups and downs, most games decided in the last second….

In this bloggers humble opinion, it was THE BEST playoff series he’s ever witnessed.

Even though the Bulls lost, it was a hard fight, and it showed that as a team, they are growing. They were hungry, but sadly, not hungry enough.

To anyone still sour, remember, we took the DEFENDING WORLD CHAMPIONS to 7 games, the limit, to 7 overtime periods.

What a great experience for the still young Chicago Bulls. There’s only one place to go from here…. Conference Semi-Finals 2010. (at least)
