With the Bulls strong start to the season, it's time for Miles & and Benji the Bookie to reassess their pre-season predictions. In the case of Miles--he looks wise. In Benji's case--let's just say he has some explaining to do. Especially regarding his criticism of Mr. DeRozan, who's playing like a hall of famer. Ben takes an opportunity to rip coaches who thinking coaching means yelling at their players. And much more basketball talk.
