Here's my version:

30 Wed @ Boston 6:00 pm FSChi -- LOSS
Nov 1 Fri New Orleans 7:30 pm WCIU -- WIN
2 Sat @ Atlanta 6:00 pm WGN Super -- LOSS
4 Mon @ Toronto 6:00 pm FSChi -- LOSS
6 Wed Boston 7:30 pm FSChi -- WIN
8 Fri Dallas 7:30 pm FSChi -- LOSS
9 Sat New Jersey 7:30 pm WGN Super -- LOSS
13 Wed @ Milwaukee 7:00 pm FSChi -- WIN
15 Fri @ New Orleans 7:30 pm FSChi -- LOSS
16 Sat Memphis 7:30 pm WGN -- WIN
19 Tue @ Sacramento 9:00 pm FSChi -- LOSS
20 Wed @ Golden State 9:30 pm WGN -- WIN
22 Fri @ L.A. Lakers 9:30 pm FSChi -- LOSS
23 Sat @ Utah 8:00 pm WGN Super -- LOSS
27 Wed @ Boston 6:00 pm WCIU -- LOSS
30 Sat @ Dallas 7:30 pm WGN Super -- LOSS

PREDICTION : 5 - 11

And that's counting on two road wins, against Milwaukee and Golden State. Remember, they were 7-34 on the road last year. 20 out of 29 teams finished with losing road records in '01/'02 including playoff teams like New Jersey, Orlando, Toronto, Indiana, Portland, Seattle and Utah. Winning on the road in the NBA is probably one of the toughest things to do in all of professional sports.

I'm just being extremely optimistic, especially after the last couple of years and they way Chicago sports is going now, if they went 8-8 I'd be extatic.

My prediction is 16-0. Of course I'm a Cubs fan and actually am still waiting on 'next year'.

Wow...that first month has the potential to be disastrous for the Bulls. I don't see any gimmes on that one.

That opening schedule would be tough for any EC team, let alone the Bulls.

@Boston - WIN 1-0
Home Vs Hornets - WIN 2-0
@Hawks - WIN
@Raptors - WIN
Home Vs Boston - WIN
Home Vs Mavericks - LOSS
Home Vs Nets - LOSS
@ Milwaukee - WIN
@ Hornets - WIN
Home Vs Grizzlies - WIN
@Sacramento - LOSS
@Golden State - WIN
@LA Lakers - LOSS
@Utah - WIN
@Boston - LOSS
@Dallas - LOSS


10-Wins, 6 losses

We are just figuring this based on our "hunches", right? LOL

Injuries MUST fit into these win/loss scenarios at some point and a few of the Bulls opponents have ailing members...Hawks, Kings, Lakers to name a few...Bulls healthy? we could surprise some other teams!!!

GO BULLS!!!!!!!

Bulls 01-02 preseason record: 3-5

Bulls 01-02 regular season record after the western conference road trip: 1-12.

I'm not saying they can't improve on 1-12, and they will be healthier going into the regular season this year, but the regular season is a whole 'nother wheel of cheese from preseason.

I'm with blkwdw13-- I'll be happy with 4-12 as long as they're playing well.

Yeah I admit 7 - 9 is optimistic in the way the people think we should think about our team

I just get a sense though that the Bulls may be slightly under the radar and at Eddy Curry is the wildcard

Jalen and Yell are not getting their props because of the overall Bull thing with the pop media but Jalen and Yell are still Jalen and Yell and they are going to be our spearheads if we are about winning games

Eddy Curry has got to be that other spear head for now and if he can manage to stay on the court for 30 minutes and get around 12 shots a game in half of the opening 16 games in the opening month - I still say we will pull out 7 wins we will achieve this

Sure we have a tough opening schedule but we have no respect and this opening campaign is about legitimising who we are and getting some

I am quietly confident

Personally , I will be pissed at anything less than 5

Worst case scenario, the Bulls are 0 - 16. Best case: 10-6 Reality: 4-12.

Notice that all of the game where the Bulls might be considered favorites are on the road; Atlanta, Memphis, and GS. Boston is clearly the team-to-beat in the East, so if the Bulls were able to win 1 of 3, that would be a major accomplishment. Having to play the Kings, Mavs, and Lakers on the road is suicide. The chances of the Bulls beating Toronto all hinge on how well Hassell can D-up Vince. If he can keep Vince to a low FG%, the Bulls have a legit shot to win.

I think the Bulls match up well with Utah. So I wouldn't be completely surprised if the Bulls eeked one out in SLC. The Bulls usually play NO very closely. Donyell, a healthy ERob, and JWill may be the difference makers. Stopping Davis is our biggest challenge. Milwaukee is going to be a lot better than everyone thinks. Cassell, Allen, Redd, Thomas, and Pryzbilla will fair well.

5-11, sounds aweful!

They'll have to get their wins early, cause once they start to hit sacramento, its gonna be a long road trip and the jetlag, hotels, LOSING just might get to them (or at least the rookies).

agreed, this bulls team will go into the season with a chip on their shoulders while the rest of the league play's their C -games when they play the bulls

il go as far asto say that eddy is tied with marshall as the 2nd most important piece to our season this year, if eddy can bring his A game, then we will have an advantage at center 3 out of 4 nights
