Of course, key with Thibs is that he just doesn't care what anyone else thinks. He's going to do what he feels is best for his team. Period.
Big break for Thibs: NYK ended up coming back to beat TOR. If Bulls had won they would be 3 seed and Thibs would have gotten crushed.
Best part of night for the Bulls is that they end up in ideal spot despite loss. Play Wizards and then Indy/ ATL winner if they get past 1st
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago ! Get fired up. Game 1 of NBA playoffs Sunday night 530CT pre Bulls Radio Net. ESPN 1000

Odds on Obama attending Bulls-Wizards?
Ok Raps. Nets wanted you. Enjoy the playoffs. I ll be watching. My frig is full of salami and cheese !
Bulls open up with the Wiz Sunday at 6
Raptors lost to NY, but didn't play starters in 4thQ. Might have been different if Bulls had won tonight.
Bulls will play Wizards in the 1st round. Game 1 is Sunday at 6 CT.
It's official: Bulls vs. Wizards. Pretty much dream scenario transpired for Bulls, who would face Pacers in 2nd round if they advance.
My bad, there were two '05 Wizards still active -- Steve Blake and Antawn Jamison. Was thinking Jamison was hurt all yr.
Appears Bulls will open playoffs 6pm Sunday on CSN against DC in bracket opposite Heat. Tho now have to win games.
Just one player on Wizards '05 playoff active roster still playing in the league. Four '05 Bulls played in league this yr (5 if count Deng)
Noah:"Like my boy Dunleavy just told me, this is the fruit of our labor. Now we have fun."Dunleavy:"Pretty sure I said it better than that."
Noah: "Before you start asking any questions, I would like to say I appreciate my teammates for a hard season. We worked our asses off."
At least Jo got some fresh old school Patrick Ewing kicks out of the trip
Wonder is Steve Francis will be in the seats cheering for the Wizards like he was in '05?
End of 3Qs: Wizards up by 16; Nets down by 17. Bulls-Wash looking likely. So many memories of 2005.
Jimmy Butler played 48 minutes. Joakim Noah played 42 minutes. Wow.
Bulls finish reg season 48-34 with 91-86 o/t loss to Bobcats. Get fourth seed in conference. Still awaiting first round opponent
Bobcats win 91-86 OT
It's over. Bobcats with 91-86 in OT. The Bulls are the fourth seed in the East.

Bobcats by 5 with 115 left Bulls ball
Michael Jordan now standing at end of Bobcats bench with 90 secs left and Charlotte up 3. Put me in, coach!
These teams take enough shots with 24-second clock running out to make the clock going off a part-of-game sound effect. 'cats by 4 in o/t
Refs reviewing last call, ball went out of bounds and was awarded to Bobcats.
Bulls haven't scored since Augustin jumper at 2:27 of regulation.
Bulls down 84-80. Bull have missed last 8 shots. Scoreless last 5 min
Bulls go to o/t 80-80 in game that may not matter with Toronto ahead 13 at halftime. Thibs over my shoulder in fury as they all matter!
Nothing like a 47-minute night for Jimmy Butler to get ready for playoffs.
Kemba Walker misses at the buzzer. We are headed to OT. I know, I know it's Thibs -- I still can't believe it.
Kirk blown away by that called, almost walked into the tunnel...fouled out with 35.9, Kemba ties it at the line
Hinrich fouls out. He's so angry he almost walked straight to locker room.
Great action here. Bulls 80-77 1:19 left 4th

Noah flings up an airball, hears it from the crowd, and laughs at himself while he heads to the bench.
Bobcats up 43-39 at the half. Thibs won't be happy with fact CHA is out-rebounding Bulls 23-17 -- but a Bulls L puts them in best situation

Bulls' D looks playoff ready. Bobcats are 9-for-30 from the field and not getting many clean looks.
That's not how it's done, Jimmy.
May not be difference in playoffs. But with Amundson Bulls now lead all playoff teams in ponytails.

Asked Thibodeau pregame if he liked that Bobcats are playing to win like Bulls. "Most teams do," he said. Guess he hasn't seen Nets lineup.
Mike, who flew in before the game, is sitting on the Charlotte bench.
