I Know, I Know, Lakers vs. Celtics, But...

Props to Send Lebron to Chicago for this.

At this point, let's do the math. Nets, Knicks, Heat, Bulls, Clippers. I pretty much think that's it.

The Nets have a core of Devin Harris, Brook Lopez, and the #3 pick. They are also coming off just a godawful season.

The Knicks are terrible.

The Heat would give Bron a great sidekick in D-Wade, but not a whole lot else.

The Clippers' have a nice supporting cast, not too bad -- Kaman, an aging but still effective Baron Davis, Eric Gordon.

And then we have the Bulls. As this video points out, LeBron James and Derrick Rose may be the two most athletic stars in the game today. Rose is only 21. James still has, what, eight good years left (if we use the Garnett model for high school sustainability)?

Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson, Kirk Hinrich, and Luol Deng are rock solid in their roles. This is a team that could become a dynasty with one simple move. No reaching for Bosh or Joe Johnson, or Amare. No complications.

Call it 'Just Add LeBron,' because unlike every other suitor, that is all the Bulls have to do to become instant championship favorites. Of course, we knew this already. But hey, cool video right?


  1. I'd like to get a legit low post scorer even if it is boozer or even a lesser talent like Gooden a few years ago.

  2. I still stand by my want of both Amare and Lebron, I feel that we would be a solid 4 seed with only james, but a solid 1 or 2 with amare

  3. I just don't think that with LeBron and Rose scoring like they can and will, we really need a scoring big. You really want the center clogged when those guys go to the hoop?

    That said, I wouldn't complain about getting Amare. Just not sure we really need to! I'd rather get a rock-solid three point shooter for a third of the cost, I think that fills more of a need.

    Or, how 'bout Dirk to the Bulls?
