What's more surprising? The Bulls contending without Derrick Rose or The Lakers struggles?
I would say the Bulls contending without Derrick Rose. The thing is that its not like they can't play well without Rose, maybe we didn't think they would be where they are right now. They Lakers struggling was something to expect from the first game against the Mavericks and them firing Mike Brown after just 5 games. The Lakers still have to pay Mike Brown the rest of his money on that contract as well.
The lakers struggles to me has been more surprising due to the hype of the collabo of Kobe, Nash and Dwight! But the bulls has played well since last year without Derrick rose. They were know for their infamous "bench squad"!
I would say the Lakers struggles is more surprising to me. Everyone kinda anointed the Lakers over the off season as the team most likely to come out of the West. The Bulls have shown that they can win without D. Rose.
The Bulls without Rose is more surprising although not a total surprise as they have a strong core of players and a defensive minded head coach. Had Rose been healthy last year the Heat may have not made it to the finals. The Lakers have an up tempo offensive minded coach but his players are not capable of matching that style as they have 2 bigs, a 37 year old point guard and Kobe, who is arguably the best one on one player on the planet.
