Who does not love a good surprise? A Christmas present that was totally unexpected. A new job possibility opening. A basketball team that exceeds expectations.
OK, so maybe some thought the Chicago Bulls would be this good this quick. Not this blogger.
At 43-18, the Chicago Bulls currently stand as the second best team in the NBA's Eastern Conference while eclipsing their win totals of each the last two playoffs seasons. By sweeping their season series with the Miami Heat yesterday winning nine of their last 11 games, the Chicago Bulls made a statement in South Beach. Not necessarily to the local media contingent, but to the national one. By defeating the big three for the third and final time this regular season, critics are starting to take notice that the Bulls could indeed be a legit contender for the Eastern Conference crown.
Wait a second......what did I just say?
Is it too early to believe that this Bulls team could win a NBA title this soon?
