This Chicago billboard became a national story after the undermanned Bulls stunned the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. It definitely plays on the testy history LeBron James and Joakim Noah have had during their careers. And judging from Game 2's foul-plagued, blowout victory by the Heat, this sign could have much more material to use. To follow the sign's work, click here.
Bulls vs. Heat
With the series swinging to Chicago for Game 3, apparently we can expect to see a tougher Bulls team, a bunch of Heat babies, and hopefully no more of the crazy Miami Birdwoman.
Chicago's behind the overachieving Bulls — especially 5-foot-9 guard Nate Robinson, who sparked a Game 1 win over the Heat and inspired teammates and fans alike by toughing it out after needing 10 stitches for a busted lip.
Coming off his second career playoff shutout, the Blackhawks goalie saved 21 shots in Game 5 as Chicago dispatched Minnesota in the first round, and his performance in this series went a long way toward winning over a fan base wondering if he had the makeup to succeed in the postseason. After all, he let in some bad goals against Phoenix a year ago. ''I'm not the only guy in the league that's given up soft goals in the playoffs,'' Crawford said. ''You guys like to keep telling me about it, but it's something you're trying to learn from and trying to make yourself better from it.''
The Wild were no match for the Blackhawks in their first-round exit. Afterward, Coach Mike Yeo faced the music, though he didn't comment on a possible team name change.
The quarterback Chicago fans love to hate got his moment in the sun (actually it looked a little overcast, but you get what we mean). The Jay Cutler smoking meme took on a life of its own to the point where Cutler got in on the joke.
Who doesn't love Ron Burgundy? We know we do for reasons like this and this. And who can forget this? But the sign is poking fun at this scene, which is another classic.
Yes, we know that's Bill Murray. But those in the know recognize this classic role. And to shout out this unforgettable scene while also trying to combat road rage proves the sign is A-OK in our book.
This shows the sign isn't afraid to show its "ballsier" side. Bulls guard Marco Belinelli got fined 15 grand (or an economy car) for his nutty celebration.
Take that, Coyotes
OK, so the sign isn't afraid to go there. Now, is there a sign in Phoenix that responded to this obvious low blow? We'll investigate.
So the sign is really not afraid to go there. But who doesn't love Friday?
Cue the video game fans
If you grew up in the '80s, you probably know what this this is referencing. The Ducks don't look so mighty here.
Hey, Tebow. You're here too
How could Tebow not be called out by this sign? But the master of Tebowing got the last laugh on the Bears, leading one of his dramatic comebacks during the Broncos' 2011 late-season run to the playoffs.
