Mostly because he seems like a decent guy and I don't actively root against players (unless you're Paul Pierce and obviously deserve it). Some of you sound ridiculous that you're so happy he's not doing well. He's struggling, but it's clearly temporary to me. I didn't pay attention to preseason or whatever comments he or fans made because that's not what matter.s On the court matters and I always figured he'd need some time to get back up to speed.
I have no doubts he'll get there and when he does he'll be just as dominant as he was before.
And I'd like Rose and the Bulls to get back on track just to make the East more interesting. Otherwise, since I don't believe in the Nets, its just a two horse race between the Pacers and Heat. Kind of boring that way, IMO.
In contrast, the West is legitimately wide open. There's 3 or 4 teams from the West that have a legitimate shot of making it to the Finals. So, playoff seeding and home court advantage is going to important, which means the regular season games in the West matter. Can't really say that about the East.
