The season may be over but that doesn’t mean it has to be forgotten. It’s when ugly things happen that the the moments in which beauty, triumph and victory are remembered. For the Chicago Bulls, things were more than ugly when it comes to their curtain call on the 2011 season. But as much as the popular NBA public will remember the season for the final three minutes of that fateful Game 5, the Bulls did a lot to get to that point. They weren’t just automatically placed their as were the Heat or Celtics, the Bulls grinded it out and built up a team that not only repreented the best of their talents, but it represented an entire city.
The city of Chicago.
The Bulls hard work in 2011, their accomplishments, will be remembered as the start of something magical. For a team that was the perennial eight seed last year finishing with an average record and coming into 2011 with average expectations, they lived to smash the reputation they had been given as a so-so team with no real shot at a title.
And boy did they do that.
So let us not dwell on the negative or sulk in our own sorrows at what transpired, but celebrate the greatness of what was the Chicago Bulls 2011 season by remembering the 10 best moments it produced.
