In NBA playoff parlance, we call this a gift.
The beaten-up, struggling, Derrick-Rose-less Bulls get a first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, perhaps the dumbest team in the league.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — No two players on the Orlando Magic roster receive more criticism than Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu. Fans occasionally fault Nelson because of his defensive shortcomings and because he's not a pass-first point guard. The...

Something seemed amiss from the opening minute Friday night.
