  • Mike

    Bulls as the four seed without Rose til….the All-Star break maybe? Bold.

    • janos

      I am pretty sure Rich not even know is hurt, not thoro post, just fluffy talk.;
      Today am see here now this site Rondos "atrocius AND overrated. At least Ryan make stat show, here is just list player; usiual bad post this guy. I am list stat o ok: game 6 last on heat? overrate?

      stupid.

  • Paul

    Jeremy Lin will be voted to the All Star team. It's a shame, but it'll happen.

  • NHBluesMan

    CP3 over Rondo for all defense team? And no mention of Bradley? Worst predictions ever

  • MJF

    Made it 13 words before a typo!

  • Rich Keefe

    BluesMan – Rondo is overrated defensively, and CP3 will average more steals and will likely be on the 1st team. They have both been 1st team twice. And do you know when Bradley is coming back? You trust those shoulders? Great.

    MJF- I read these for the grammar too!
