Unfortunately, pulling out all those stops might delay the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals because of Oprah’s final show tapings.
We get more from Miami Herald:
The NBA informed a few involved parties before Tuesday’s Bulls game that if the Heat and Chicago win their series in six games or fewer, Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals would need to be moved from Monday to Sunday night because the United Center likely is unavailable Monday to allow Oprah Winfrey’s crew to set up for the taping of one of her final shows. If the Heat or Bulls series go seven games, Game 1 of the Eastern finals would be Wednesday.
So, the only thing that might be able to stop Derrick Rose at this point is the taping of one of Oprah’s final shows.
