Chicago Bulls fans have a short, short memory. A few months ago, they had tears streaming down their faces when Derrick Rose went down with a knee injury. Tonight, the Bulls see LeBron James hurt his leg and they cheer? Yes, that really happened.
LeBron was going for a fast break layup when he collided with Nate Robinson. As it turned out, it was just a bruise and LeBron was able to keep playing. After the game, he said that he thinks he’ll be able to play in Miami’s next game on Friday.
If there is one set of fans who shouldn’t cheer an injury, it’s Bulls fans. They’ve gone from a championship contender to a pretender due to injury. If Rose were healthy right now, they’d be the second best team in the Eastern Conference. But he’s hurt and they are a run of the mill squad.
Chicago felt the bad karma almost instantly. The Heat ended up destroying the Bulls by a final score of 86-67. Let’s hope Bulls fans take a second to think just how ludicrous it is for them to be happy about a superstar potentially getting injured.
Here is a video of the Bulls fans cheering:
