If The Bulls Don’t Beat The Cavaliers In The NBA Playoffs This Season, Will They Ever Do It?

The Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight is officially over. And now that it is, you’re thinking, “What next?” For weeks now, the fight has been all that anyone has been able to talk about. Who’s going to win? How’s it going to end? Is there going to be a rematch? Er, okay, so maybe people will still be talking about it for months to come, even though the fight is over. But at the moment, an even better fight is about to start. It’ll tip off tomorrow night, and it’ll feature LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. And it’s expected to be one hell of a matchup.

It’s not going to be quite as good as we all thought it was going to be, though, because unfortunately, Kevin Love injured his shoulder during the Cavaliers’ first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics and won’t be able to play for four to six months. So the series is going to be slightly less intriguing thank it would have been if Love was available. However, Love’s absence does add a little something extra to the mix if you’re a Bulls fan. Because this might be or, rather, definitely is the first time in a long time that the Bulls are going to be somewhat favored to make a trip to the 2015 NBA Finals. But before they do, they’re going to have to overcome LeBron, who has owned Chicago in the playoffs.

In the past, the Bulls have been dismissed by LeBron’s teams in the postseason time and time again. So it’s clear that they need to get over the hump when it comes to playing LeBron. And even more importantly, they need to do it this year, because Love’s injury has basically given them a decided advantage over the Cavaliers. That’s not to say that the series is going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, there’s an added pressure that comes along with having the advantage that they have. But if they aren’t able to beat LeBron in the playoffs in 2015, when else will they be able to do it?

Don’t look now, but a great fight is about the take place. And even though it doesn’t involve Mayweather and Pacquiao, something tells us it’s going to be great.
