great coaching couldnt do a thing w jordan or kobe when they wanted to destroy a team. melo just isnt like that. although he has the talent to be something v close to those guys, he just doesnt have the mentality.
i grew up liking the bulls n watching them win multiple titles under phil jackson so i know what great coaching looks like. still though the bulls without jordan or pippen were beatable. same goes for this yrs bulls team w/out rose. coaching is very important. but players make or break you.
the bulls as currently constructed are still a balanced team even without rose, w good bigs, a solid bench n players who understand their roles. thibs is a gd coach, but our team is pretty gd too and we'd just beaten them a couple nights prior, w their best player beasting. y'all need to stop w the loser mentality nonsense. we couldve taken both games.
