Bulls-Hawks Series Coverage Needs More Perspective, Less “Non-Stories”

I know, I know, it’s the NBA playoffs, so everything is magnified 1000 x every game, but observers of the Chicago Bulls-Atlanta Hawks series need to regain some perspective. It seems that every game, “the momentum” shifts 180 degrees to whoever just won the last game, and whether the media actually says it or not, people keep crowning the NBA champion, and then dethroning, and then re-crowning, and then dethroning, and then crowning another after each game.

Prior to last night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls, the Bobcats had won three of five; with those three being over the Eastern Conference leading Boston Celtics, the currently fourth seeded Atlanta Hawks and the defending champion LA Lakers.

Third time the charm for beating the Charlotte Bobcats? Roger that.

Winning the first home game after a long road trip instead of falling flat in the homestand opener? Done.
