Default MELO please dont go to the Bulls! ... Rose cant be trusted ala Grant Hill in Magic

PLEEEEEASE!

Remember when Tmac went to Orlando and everyone expected him and Grant Hill to be an amazing duo?.. and then Grant Hill NEVER played and his contract killed any opportunity for the Magic to get Tmac help!!

Please dont go to Chicago Melo!!!!

Rose played 10 games in 2 years. I dont care if there are not supposed to be any long term effects of his injuries but fact remains, he cant stay on the court.

You really think him staying the Knicks is better?
Calderon
Smith
?
Stat
Barg


No heart/defense/rebounding, doubt the Knicks will make playoffs with that roster esp with a rookie coach and new system

Even DESPITE Rose's injury issues, I'd still go to Chicago over all the other destinations.

Melo has to stay in the East for starters. Western Conf is, as I have said over and over, an absolute murder's row to get out of the conf to the finals. Getting out of the 1st round is even a crap shoot.

Rose aside, Thibs, Noah, Gibson, Butler, McD is a way better cast than anything in NY.

Call me bias or a homer. Whatever. It's obvious he can come to Chicago, be "the Man" still and compete for a championship.

I know bringing a chip to NYC would be the best for him, but he has to trust Phil and Dolan that they can get him a contending team by the end of next summer....who knows if that will happen.

Being the guy who brings the first Chip to Chicago since MJ would be quite a feat as well.

To be clear....


I think Phil and Fish and the Org can do big things in NYC, I just don't think the Knicks franchise w/ or w/ out Melo will win a championship in the next 2-3 seasons.

Building chip teams takes time. Hell the Heat came together like we've never seen a team put together and they didn't even win in year one.

No matter what Phil's big plans are, is it possible to make as big of a splash as Riley and the Heat did w/ the Big 3? No way.

Despite uncertainty surrounding Rose's health the Bulls are still one of the best options if not the best option aside from the idea thrown around of Melo joining Bron, Wade and Bosh in Miami (don't see it happening).

The roster that the Bulls already have in place along with Thibodeau is the best choice for him if winning is indeed more important to him than money.

Dallas is more of an aging roster.
Houston I don't see it working well with Harden and Howard.
Don't see him going to Atlanta.
I doubt it would work with Kobe in LA.

Bulls have the best defensive coach in the league and a top coach overall.
Noah is the reigning defensive player of the year. Taj would start at the 4. Jimmy Butler can always guard the opponents best perimeter player. McDermott adds shooting. And throw in a hopefully recovered former MVP in Rose and you have the best option.

Let's see what Melo decides.

Why go as far back as GHill? Just say DWade. Rose is going to be like DWade from now on.

100% isn't healthy enough for Rose to play.
