Drink: NB Martini
Well, I have to say that I am glad the Bulls went out on the NB Martini. It offered the perfect amount of kick-you-in-the-ass alcohol content that this game required. As for the game, well, it picked up on the theme that was the last four games of this series. And that would be the Bulls complete inability to close out a game. Much like the last game, there is little else to say, other than the greater theme of the entire series.
There are times when you watch a sporting event and a team is giving away the game, but the opponent never takes advantage of it and eventually loses. It is very frustrating if you are pulling for the latter side. The Bulls added a new twisted to this motif. The Bulls defense were giving the Bulls the series, while the Bulls offense wanted nothing to do with it. They were their own worst enemy. Granted, the Heat were playing some D, yet the Bulls offense looked like it could be broken down to a one-dimensional threat quite easily. I am sorry that, like the Bulls, I am too defeated to go on with more…
This series offered so many questions the Bulls will have to address. Questions that pounding another NB Martini (like I am as I write this) is not going to answer. Questions that I will certainly try to offer some insight to when I am something less than hammered.
This season was a great season to cover. It is too bad it had to go out on such a sour note. In the coming days I will offer a season review, as well as my view on where the Bulls are/should be headed. Until then, I salute your 2010-11 Chicago Bulls with two Reagans. A better effort in the Conference Finals would have netted them three Reagans, but the way they went down hurt my heart (and liver) too much.
