A Bunch of Bull

If you waded through the flood of NBA preseason predictions, you probably found a handful of adventurous pundits who envisioned the Phoenix Suns and Chicago Bulls throwing down in the NBA Finals. Sorry, but we don’t see the Bulls living up to their end of the bargain, so this is probably the only time to catch up-and-coming stars Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, and Kirk Hinrich in Phoenix this season. Ever since negotiations that would’ve sent Kobe Bryant to Chicago broke down, the Bulls have struggled mightily, losing their first four games of the year. Meanwhile, even without star center Amaré Stoudamire playing at 100 percent, the Suns appear to be as strong as ever to open the season.
