    I think Sharp pretty much got it right this time.

    Both teams are better, and if Ben wants to show anyone up, it's Flip. Not his previous teammates.

    I really don't care whether Wallace does well or poorly. I honestly don't. Just give me a Pistons victory in the series.

    Like Roscoe, I too am going to root for whatever guy is in the red, white & blue (or Teal :)). Always have. Always will. It may make for passionate and lively debates but the rest of this stuff doesn't matter to me. Never has. Never will.

    We talked about the whole Ben Wallace thing and the rivalry. I asked him for some enlightening words and he sang............................

    I was watching the Suns and the Lakers last night, when Mrs. Linwood asked me who was playing. When I told her she said "oh... for me there are only two teams: Detroit and Chicago; the good guys and the bad guys. Let me know when that game is on!"

    There has been some talk of Cuban's interest in buying the Cubs lately. After that, they will no longer be lovable. Imagine Cuban in the front row yelling at the umps the whole game.

    Chicago sux and blows!!!!!!!!!!!

    The reason I-94 is such bad shape? Its connected to Chicago.

    The reason Dennis Rodman became a rainbow fruitcake? He played in chicago.

    The reason Chet Lemon is sporting bling bling on his right hand? He left Chicago.

    The reason I'm not a brat eating-bed wetting-Sears Tower wanna Empire State building watching disgusting fat body? I dont live in Chicago.

    The reason for the riots in 67? People came down from Chicago.

    The reason Scott Skiles takes out so many of his emotions at games? He married a man from Chicago.

    The reason there is a MOTOWN sound and not a CHITOWN sound? People cant sing in Chicago.

    Other reasons to hate Chicago?

    Hawk Harrelson
    Phil Jackson
    Bill Cartwright
    Wilbur Wood
    Mike Ditka

    Great stuff HQ. Time to back away from Hate. Look for some finger rolls.
    -
    CWalker, rebounds can easily cancel our turnover advantage. I would like to see CWebb just block BBeen out. No double digit boards for BBeen.

    This is really good HQ. Lets get them out of the playoffs quick, so that we don't have to talk about it. But I must admit deep inside I love Chicago as a city. I always loved to visit when I lived in D-town. But when it comes to sports - I hate Chi. Although it was hard lately since lately they only had one good team - Bears. Now Bulls are there too. And Ben just adds oil to the fire.

    But rebounds don't disrupt an opponents offensive rhythm and kickstart your own offensive tempo like turnovers.

    It's what the Bulls like to do, and what the Pistons are best in the league at not doing. This is why I have a pretty good feeling each game will be dependent on this one stat.

    Rebounding is second on my list, however I think the Pistons could keep Ben off the boards and still get trounced if they lose offensive continuity like they did last year.

    I this game Pistons outrebounded the Bulls. I am just hoping they can keep it up. Pistons have some tall guys to go after the boards - Sheed, Web, Tay, Dyess, JMax was good too.

    Ineresting how all the hype has been comming out of Chicago. Even after game #1 Wallace/Deng said a few things.

    From the Pistons all we get are "Chicago is a good team", "This is going to be a tought series"...

    The Pistons are not giving anything that can inspire the Bulls.

    Just do all the talking with their play. Looks like they are really locked in this year.

    Here is a poll in the Chicago Tribune that gets my vote for worst poll ever.

    Who is your least valuable player from game one?

    a) Ben Gordon
    b) Luol Deng
    c) The bench
    d) Three-point shooting
    e) FT shooting

    Chicago Bulls - ChicagoSports.com

    This off-season, they should really try to trade FT shooting for a true center.

    Tay, don't forget, three of their five sports analysts picked Bulls, and two of those three think that Bulls can wrap it up in 6 games.
