    The chicago Bulls will be fine

    Look my fellow Bulls fans, we are going to be fine. Rumor this morning is that chicago is talking to JJ redick, Kyle Korver, Micheal Redd, and Ronnie Brewer. So they are going to try and sign 1 or 2 more shooters, which is exactly what they need. Would you of really wanted a guy who would turn is back his home town because he realized he couldnt do it?

    If chicago signs a couple of shooters and a decent backup guard they will be in the top 4 in the east.

    Miami still has to sign a roster with no money, ESPN was saying last night its still going to be hard for them to win. It will be just like cleveland when someone goes and sits out the bench will start to build a deficit. So when LBJ or Wade comes back out on the floor they will have to play catch up. So think of the toll that will take on their bodies when they do it for 82 games in a season. And dont forget Wade has had injuries problems in the past.

    So i for one was against getting lebron in chicago because we could win without him. We just need shooters and a good backup guard and were there. so why spend all the money on a superstar and have zero cap space. because we will need the money to resign noah and resign rose here in a couple of years so it really would of been a mistake to sign lebron. Yes we probably could of won a championship but when you have no money to resign your key players then you lose that.

    Re: The chicago Bulls will be fine

    Lebron is such a crock of ****. If he was really about winning NBA championships he would have gone to Chicago. That team with him would have been better than the team currently in Miami.

    Rose
    Deng
    Lebron
    Boozer
    Noah

    And some solid bench players is a lot better than

    Chalmers
    Wade
    Lebron
    Bosh
    And nobody else!

    Besides the fact they already have Mike Miller, it's tough to say how the Heat will fill out their bench but I have a feeling they will be able to find plenty of solid veterans ready to take a pay cut to try and get a ring. Also, you can't act like going to Miami means he doesn't want to win. They will have the two best players on the floor every night, except maybe the Thunder and Lakers, and on most nights the three best players on the floor. They have a very good shot at winning multiple titles.

    LeBron doesn't know if he can play with those guys though. He has already played with Wade and Bosh on Team USA.. maybe they've had a plan all along of what they needed, know that they can share the ball well from experience, and will ask Riley to sign players that the 3 of them agree on.

    If you really wanted to accuse LeBron of jumping on an already good team instead of building his own, one could argue the Bulls were more like that than the Heat.

    I've never for a second thought that Lebron James #1 goal is to WIN. He always makes comments about his brand and how he wants to become a billionaire. I think he went to Miami for 2 reasons. To play with his buddies (which is fine) and to not pay income taxes. The kid is all about money

    Current rosters as well the Lakers are still better than the Heat but you are right, we have to see who the Heat can get

    No everyone was waiting to see what LeBron did.

    Or, a lot of solid veterans were all waiting for the LeBron chip to fall before deciding where to play.

    How DARE you try to speak reason to jaded Bulls fans who are now trying to convince themselves that Boozer alone is worth the max contract their team cleared salary space for...

    You worry about that later. You can always make trades to open up space down the road

    You cant really worry about that later, Noahs contract is up next summer and rose the summer after that.

    The exact kinds of guys that fit into a team with 3 stars already.. guys that hustle and play good defense and can make an open shot.. you don't need a creator or anyone flashy.

    Reddick, Felton, Haslem, Farmar, etc.

    I'm not accusing Lebron of that at all. I just think his whole talk of winning championships is just talk at this point. If he was serious about winning right now, than Chicago was the better option. That Chicago team with him would have been the favorites to win it next year. Miami probably is too but who knows who they get at this point
