One of the biggest reasons Bulls fans should become Cavs fans is because you won’t have to deal with Derrick Rose constantly getting injured. Cavalier players are always healthy.

Another big reason is that the Cavaliers have Lebron James. The best player in the NBA. In my opinion, nobody comes close to how hard he plays every night on the court.

A few things to look for in terms of the Cavaliers are team chemistry, their schedule over the next month, and who will take the leadership role among the big 3 Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Lebron James.

When you look at the Bulls, you have to wonder how much longer Derrick Rose is going to be able to stay healthy. If he’s able to, look for the Bulls to make a deep playoff run all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. If he’s not abler to stay healthy, the Bulls ship will sink very quickly.

The Cavaliers have been a good team with Lebron being there. They’ve had 2 Eastern Conference Finals appearances (2006-2007 and 2008-2009) and 1 NBA finals appearance (2007). 2009-2010 was the Cavs best season.

They had a record of 61-21 and they finished 1st in the Eastern Conference. Also, the current Cavaliers were on a 5 game winning streak. So if you’re looking for another NBA team to cheer for, I highly recommend that you cheer for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
