Where were the Bulls before 1984?
Did we know we'd draft the GOAT? No way in hell.
You guys all have a chance. Back to the future and predicting Florida to win it? And then it happens?
You get the point.
To quote the most famous American historian this century has produced,
"Hey, it could happen" - Mcdonalds
the difference is, when the bulls draft a Jordan or a Rose, odds are he is staying in CHICAGO.
when the lakers draft a Kobe, or Magic, odds are he is staying LA.
when the knicks draft a Monroe or frazier or Ewing, odds are hs is staying in NEW YORK.
when the celtics drafted Bird or Pierce, odds are he is staying in BOSTON
get the gist? in the past year we've already seen dwight and chris paul force there way out of small markets, missing out on NY, and "settling" for LA. Lebrons "decision" was pretty easy and it wasnt sticking around in cleveland.
Great ownership, Large market. thats what you need to be reasonably confident you'll win one in the next 15-20 years
This is all true
