Spot on.It's funny, because most of the angry fans have dismissed regular season wins as meaningless. Now, 12 regular season games into the season, everyone wants to make grand judgments about the Bulls' chances. It only seems reasonable to give the new coach 30-40 games to figure things out, if we're really only experimenting for what will work in the playoffs rather than trying to eke out every regular season win that is possible.
I wonder how much of the anger is spurred by the media. It seems that when the team is losing, I hear how there are "profound problems," but when they're winning, "it's only the regular season."
As for "blaming Rose," Rose has been the key to the team's success for 7 years now. They're just beginning the process of shaking off their "Rose-centricity." The fact that the Bulls have managed to make the playoffs every season of the Rose Era is a credit to the players, coaches and management.
Oh, and anyone second-guessing Bulls management for signing Rose to his current contract is either disingenuous, a brand new fan or suffering from amnesia.
