You Are Aware The Point Of Basketball Is To Not Touch Each Other, Right?

Dear Chicago Bulls,

I want to thank you for ruining last Friday night for me.

I'm hanging with a friend of mine I haven't hung with in ages, and we go to a sports bar to watch the game.  I dreaded watching the Bulls game after the epic meltdown you guys had in game 2.  I can take you guys losing a game.  I can't take you losing your composure like you did.

If that was a sign you shouldn't be winners, game 3 confirmed it.  That cheap shot on LeBron James?  You don't win games against the best team in the league by being stupid.  There's a difference between being tough and being an asshole.  Your heads weren't in the game, your heads were trying to be the Detroit Piston Bad Boys of the New Millennium.

That shit didn't fly when Detroit hit us with it during the Jordan Years.  It became a point of pride that Chicago could win without sinking to that level.  Now, here you are, embracing the anti-thesis of Jordan.

I'm expecting you to lose the next two games.  It's a shame.  You have fundamentals down.  You're scrappy.  You're a good team.

But your behavior sucks.

I hate Miami.  Always have, always will.  But I actually hate you more, and will until you cut the macho and actually play.

Peter G
