The Miami Heat evened the series against the Chicago Bulls with an 85-75 win in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  There is something that is strikingly ironic about this series.

LeBron James scored 29 points while Dwyane Wade poured in 24 points for the Miami Heat in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls.  Derrick Rose scored 23 points for the Bulls but only shot 7-for-23 from the field.

It's a much different scenario for LeBron James than it was in the 2007 NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs.  LeBron James, at that time, was more like Derrick Rose is now in terms star power surrounding him.

LeBron was the only star on the Cavs.  He had the task of going up against Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and the 2007 NBA Finals MVP Tony Parker.  Now, LeBron has Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as running mates while Derrick Rose is the only star the Bulls have with the disappearing act of Carlos Boozer on display.
