Presenting: The All-(fill in the blank) Team

The Bulls were in an almost-must-win situation against Miami on Monday at the United Center. Win, and they turn it into a best-of-three series. Lose, and they're practically sunk with Game 5 on Wednesday in Miami.

Well, it was the second scenario that unfolded, as the Heat won 88-65.

Even though they couldn't reclaim momentum from the Heat, the Bulls got good news Monday when Joakim Noah was voted onto the NBA's All-Defensive first team. The center is Chicago's first All-Defensive first-team selection since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in 1997-98.

Not that the honors need to stop there. Here is our All-(fill in the blank) Team from Game 4:


LeBron James

Let's face it, the guy is just plain getting it done. Hence the [bleep]—that's what all his opponents are saying when he's done with them.



Tom Thibodeau

It's a tough look to pull off, but from certain angles the Bulls coach makes it appear, er, somewhat passable, for a guy refusing to accept he's losing it up top.


All-Gimme That!

Carlos Boozer

The Bulls forward yelled "Gimme that!" several times Monday after pulling down a rebound. Even when there was no one else around. At least his voice was getting a workout.


All-Where Did He Come From?

Richard Hamilton

Tom Thibodeau must have felt backed into a corner. He put Richard Hamilton in during the second quarter, hoping for any sort of a spark. He did finally score his first points of the postseason and give the Bulls a spark, but they really needed a wildfire.
