3 Comments

For any team trying to reach the NBA Finals out of the East, LeBron James has been more than a hurdle, he’s been Everest. For five straight NBA Finals, it’s been his team — at times there only because of his force of will (and freak physical nature).

Is this the year the Bulls — with a healthy Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol, Jimmy Butler, and Joakim Noah — finally get over the LeBron hump? That’s the question in this latest edition of PBT Extra.

If it were only LeBron and the Bulls were healthy, I could see it. But there’s Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and a host of other problems for the Bulls (or the Wizards, Heat and everyone else).
