It's been awhile since I've updated this blog. But the NBA playoffs is just around the corner so it's about time I give my thoughts about it.

The Chicago Bulls has really been the surprise team this season. Behind Derick Rose, they've been playing really well as a team. Note that this team has no legit superstar, as I don't consider Rose to be at that level yet. He's new to the league.

Bulls fans have so much to rejoice. It's back to the Michael Jordan era where the team is able to beat the best teams in the NBA. Fans are out and ticket sales are sky-high. In fact, even nurses from work, rush into the games. They just take of their nursing scrubs and they're off to the arena. The Bulls homecourt has an amazing crowd.

The Miami Heat on the other hand, with Lebron James and Chris Bosh wearing the Heat uniform is still finding consistency. They've beaten strong teams including the LA Lakers but at the same time bowed to the lower-ranked teams particularly to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In James' second game against his former team, his triple-double output wasn't enough to beat the determined Cleveland Cavaliers. Heat's big three is no doubt the strongest offensive crew in the NBA. You can say, they're a one-on-one team with James and Wade on board, but still, they can score. They're problem is on the defensive end. They are not solid defensively. I guess you can attribute that to the lack of defensive guys in their roster.

The Lakers and Celtics have been struggling also. They are not as dominating as last year. The San Antonio Spurs has been solid this year but the question is can they do the same in the playoffs.

In hospitals, scrubs tops must be worn by nurses. In the NBA playoffs, teams must wear not only their uniforms but their best game. Only the best team will survive. I'm very excited in this year's NBA playoffs. My team? Miami Heat!
