You want a sample of disparity on the field of play? You should’ve seen the Bulls play the New York Knicks Monday night.

The Knicks, of course, have Jeremy Lin, who has ridden a few late-game heroics, a plethora of bad puns, and the hyperventilating New York City media to become a national phenomenon. His counterpart at point guard for the Bulls just happens to be the reigning NBA most valuable player, Derrick Rose.

Monday, it was no contest, as the Bulls beat the Knicks 104-99.
