Saturday night, the Bulls added another team to their list of pathetic losses this season by losing to the almighty Washington Wizards by double-digits. It wasn’t even that close. The Bulls had a whole bunch of turnovers and that’s what did them in. In the last 30 days, the Bulls have lost to the Bobcats, Suns and Wizards. What contending team loses to three of the shittiest teams in the NBA?
This all lies on head coach, Thomass Thibodeou. It’s one thing to be in the game and lose because the other team is better but it’s another to not show up. The Bulls always play down to their competition and it’s the coach’s responsibility to have his team ready and for the most part this season, that’s not the case. Their record doesn’t mean anything either. Look at all of the games they have had double-digit leads only to see them piss it away in spectacular fashion. When I was at the game in Toronto two weeks ago, the Bulls had a 19-point lead, blew it and should have lost the game but thanks to a blown-call at the end of the game (Deng pushed off a defender for the game-winning shot), it didn’t happen.
On Monday night, Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats return to the United Center. This is going to be tough. The Bobcats are the only team that can match up well with the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
