Chicago Bulls are in a prime position to shock the Eastern Conference come playoff time in the NBA.
The famous franchise that dominated the NBA in the 1990's under the guidance of basketball legend Michael Jordan could be on their way to another epic run.
This time though there is no outstanding star name that will guide them to the NBA Finals, with a team effort likely to propel them to almost greatness.
Now I'm not saying that the Bulls win the NBA Finals this year, far from it.
It's just the quality in the East is so poor that the Bulls wouldn't have to provide too much to barrel their way through.
If you think I'm crazy just hear me out, because it's about to get a whole lot crazier.
Miami Heat will take the Eastern Conference number one seed heading into the playoffs, and they will meet the Brooklyn Nets in the final four of the East.
Having dominated the Heat on four occasions this season, the Nets will finally end the NBA Champion Heat's attempts at a three-peat.
Therefore the other match of the final four will take place between the Bulls and the Pacers, after both sides navigate their way through the first round of the NBA playoffs.
The Pacers will then go down to the Bulls, with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah providing Chicago enough guidance to win, while Paul George and Co find themselves burnout after a long and largely successful year.
This will leave an Eastern Conference Championship match-up between the Nets and the Bulls. But, after defeating the Heat took so much energy out of them, the Nets will lose easily to the Bulls, to see Chicago to the NBA Finals.
Ultimately, the Bulls will lose heavily in five games in the NBA Finals, as we see calls for the playoff system to be revamped, with the Western Conference showing its dominance.
Now this may seem like an insane prediction, and it probably will be. But the beauty of the NBA playoffs is that anything can happen.
