    AT&T KNOWS that if they hiked up the rates on existing customers, their sales would plummet like the ValuJet. I’d jump ship first.

    It’s still kinda early to call it when it comes to who’ll win the championship. Rip is the piece the Bulls needed LAST YEAR, but I don’t know if he’ll be enough to help them win it all this year.

    @Mdub ive been trying to explain that to a diehard Bulls fan for the past 2 weeks. I still dont see them beating MIA this year due to the Heat being deeper, stronger, and faster then last year. The Heat now have (in addition to the players returning from last year) a healthy Haslem and Miller plus added size (Curry), youth, and speed (Norris Cole) and another outside threat/ role player in Battier. The Bulls only added Rip and lost Bogans i believe. Thats not gonna cut it.
