Despite recent, unfortunate breaking news (pun intended), the Chicago Bulls have positioned themselves to pull of a rather shocking first round upset over the Boston Celtics. Although honestly it’s not THAT shocking if you are a listener of Fastbreak Breakfast, where resident gambling maven Jon Burr (@masterjonburr) predicted not only the Bulls over Celtics, he also put his money on the Bucks taking down the Raptors. So can these upstart underdogs hold on and pull off the series win? If they do, how does that change the future for Boston and Toronto?
