Time for the playoffs.


1. The Blackhawks begin the playoffs against the Blues. Toews and Kane are healthy and ready to go. Injuries are never a good thing but for this case, the two stars were able to rest which is what they needed going in. The Blues are a MASH unit right now but without a doubt, they will still be a tough team to beat in a series. There hasn’t been a repeat champion since the Red Wings did it in 1998 so that just goes to show how hard it is to do so. The Blackhawks, if healthy, have the chance to do it.

2. The Bulls start Sunday night against the Wizards. As we all know, the Bulls may get lucky and get to the second round but waiting for them will be the Pacers. If, by some sort of miracle, they win that series, the Heat will be next in line. Let me guess, play the Heat, win the first game and promptly, lose the next four. While that is possible, here are the reasons why that could happen: Derrick Rose has two bad knees and won’t be playing. Joakim Noah, while playing, has two bad feet. Jimmy Butler’s legs are dead. Really, he can’t feel them. This entire team still can’t make free throws. Last, but not least, Tom Thibodeau is still the head coach.

    There are only 6 teams with higher FT% than the Bulls, yet “they can’t make free throws”. Really, the entire NBA can’t make FTs

    How about the Bulls can’t make free throws when they need them the most. The ones they do miss cost them games. Ever think of that genius? Or are you too goddamned busy looking at your useless bullshit stat sheet.

  3. Fro Dog Says:

    Or how about Jimmy Butler playing 47 minutes and 55 seconds in the last game of the season when he should have been resting? It made zero sense why the Bulls signed three or four new players when they aren’t even seeing the court.

  4. chucky Says:

    But Fro, what about the Bulls being 7th in the league in free throws? Doesn’t that count for anything?

    I didn’t think so.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Or the fact that if the Bulls were in the Western Conference, they wouldn’t even be in the playoffs. Apparently, I need more stats.

  6. chucky Says:

    No, I disagree with you there pal. I think your instincts are spot on. Screw the stats. Those are for bean counters and other assorted geeks. If you listen to stats like some people around here do, you’d think that Kevin FUCKING Gregg is the second coming of Walter Johnson.

    Just wondering, what is major league record for consecutive games getting shut out? The fucking Scrubs seem to trying to go for it. If I were Samardzjia I would demand to be traded today. I don’t think they’ve scored one fucking run for him. And they want us to get all excited about celebrating 100 years of futility in a goddamned urinal? Fuck you Ricketts!
