Muller: Which Atlanta Team Will Show Up In Round Two?

I must confess: I did not see this coming. I fully expected the Chicago Bulls to be squaring off against the Orlando Magic in the teams’ first game of the Eastern Conference semi-finals tonight…not the Atlanta Hawks.

Muller: Derrick Rose Is As ‘Irreplaceable’ As They Come

Despite being the only player in the NBA ranked in the top 10 in points and assists per game, there may still be some debate to whether or not Derrick Rose has established himself as the MVP of the league.

The biggest question Bulls fans had about Carlos Boozer, after Chicago acquired the talented power forward via a sign-and-trade deal with the Utah Jazz back in July, was not his ability to perform on the basketball court.
