Bulls on track for future titles

The Bulls can look forward to a very bright future and probable NBA championship soon.

Aw, come on, sisters and brothers: We expected the Bulls to have a good season this year. But not this good.

Who really expected all of this: the league's best record; Derrick Rose as NBA MVP; Tom Thibodeau as NBA coach of the year; Gar Forman as the NBA's co-executive of the year; a trip to the Eastern Conference finals?

I didn't. Neither did most of you.

Now, just as Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said earlier, "If we stay healthy, we have an awfully good chance of winning at least four championships."

Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen and coach Phil Jackson all signed off on that.

Of course, I can't see that happening any time soon because the Miami Heat is finally living up to the hype behind Dwyane Wade, Le-Bron James and Chris Bosh.

But nobody knew how bright the Bulls' future was until we saw what they did this season.
