Bulls Better than Cavaliers

NBA: Preseason-Chicago Bulls at Cleveland CavaliersThe 2014-15 NBA season will start shortly and the first meeting of the regular season between the Chicago Bulls and the revamped Cleveland Cavaliers is less than two weeks away.

LeBron James who will lead the Cavaliers into action believes that the Bulls are a better team than the Cavaliers are.

On Monday night, the two teams will face one another in a preseason matchup. Cleveland is calling this their most important game of the preseason, but only because of playing a potential rival in the Eastern Conference but because James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be starting for the first time versus a team from the NBA.

Chicago is a team that is far better than were are at this point because of chemistry, said James. They have played as a unit for a long time and we have a long way to get to that point.

James faced the Bulls in three playoffs over the last five seasons once with Cleveland and twice with Miami. James has a long history with not just Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose but Tom Thibodeau the Bulls head coach, who designed a defense against James for Boston when he was a Celtics assistant coach.

James said it was not all about winning games, going out to dinner or practicing together to bond. The team must go through something tough like losing games they should win, have arguments now and then and test one another out before the unit will come together.

James has had that experience. When he joined Miami in 2010, the Heat struggled to a 9-8 start.

There were problems with chemistry and locker room friction, but after a difficult month to start the season, the Heat went 21-1 and reached the NBA Finals.

He believes there will not be the friction on Cleveland that there was on Miami but he expects adversity.

Overall Cleveland is 4-1 this preseason but have not been able to test their team that much.

In a short time, he will find out.
