yes, i’m sad. i’ve never been so emotionally invested in a team before. i never would’ve thought i could get like this about a team or basketball in general! ..but i am. i’m not gonna say that the Bulls lost their chance to win the championship cause i believe they still have a chance. if they play hard and have this motivate them to win it for Derrick.
i’m mainly sad because Derrick wanted it more than anything. he wanted to lead his team and WIN. i can only imagine how he’s feeling right now. Torn ACL is a major injury for a player. i hope he can recover from this positively and continue to encourage his team during this Playoff season.
i’m gonna go finish my school work now and try not to sulk. lol i believe and stand by the Bulls. like what @christianjordan tweeted earlier, “You are what your NBA team is.” it’s true. and we’re Strong. we got this.
the link is to an article about the Bulls. reading that has made me realize how much respect i’ve gained for them this season. I was sort’ve a Heat fan (and still am. I have respect for them as well. they play hard and dirty haha) but i was never really a team lover. i liked certain players rather than a whole team. but this season my love for the Bulls has grown tremendously. I respect each players role on the team. I mean come on, no better bench does work than the Bulls. just sayin =P even with their star players out, they do work.
i’ll never forget watching the Lakers/Bulls game after the lockout on Christmas Day. everyone was at ate chrystle’s house and when Rose made that last shot, we all jumped up screaming and cheering. that was so much fun. <3 (esp since the lakers lost lol) it also helps that my best friend @ohyesitsdes loves them just as much as i do! our love for the Bulls gets emotional sometimes. LOL jk =P maybe.
i guess it helps that D. Rose is on the Bulls too =P So sexy! Playoffs 2012! Woo!!
