Bulls Sent Packing; What’s Next?

By now you know, the Cleveland Cavaliers eliminated the Chicago Bulls from the playoffs. The Bulls were defeated on May 14th 94-73. imagesEveryone was confused by how they went out. Mike Dunleavy put it this way: “If you had told me going into the series that these guys would have no Kevin Love, LeBron would have five games below 50 percent shooting and Kyrie Irving would be playing on one leg… man, I sure would have liked our chances.”

After Nikola Mirotic’s flagrant where he clotheslined Iman Shumpert, it seemed like everything went downhill from there. The Cavs outscored the Bulls 53-33 the rest of the game. But now the Bulls are eliminated and Coach Tom Thibodeau might have coached his last Chicago Bulls game. Rumors have thibodeau-bulls-horiz-apjpg-ec9984ddf436f54dbeen going on all season that Thibodeau is not on management’s good side. Derrick Rose was asked about all of it: “If it is a feud or whatever’s going on, I just hope that they fix it. I don’t mind him as a coach.” Joakim Noah was asked if he thinks this team and these coaches could win next year: “That’s the goal every year,” he replied. “I come in every year focused and give myself a shot. Right now everyone is hurt, everyone is down, everybody’s disappointed with the way the season ended.”

Chicago was faced with an injury filled season and it seemed like their chemistry was even off. Reports are saying that Jimmy chicago-bulls-derrick-roseButler and Derrick Rose have been struggling with tension during the season and the issues finally boiled over during Game 6. Which could explain why the Bulls had a horrible game and the Cavs easily beat them. Jimmy Butler is going to get a big contract this offseason, either in Chicago or elsewhere. If he does stay, the Bulls will have one of the most expensive backcourts in the league. This team just needs to find a way to play together and they might have to find a way under a new coach.
