it depends on how much you value intangibles i guess. Rose seems to have them in spades.

In terms of talent, its Lebron clearly.. but you really do have to think very hard before pulling off a trade like this. There's a lot of posters on here that question Lebron's character at 26 years old and yet.. almost everyone on here knows what Rose is all about.

Just to play devil's advocate though.. Lebron was playing like this in his breakout season in 2009. I have never seen him as focused since that season. So, if the Bulls lose this year, how will Rose respond? Will he keep charging at full speed like this year or will he take a step back?

If the Bulls don't make it to the Finals this year, they'll win the next three. That's the kind of player Rose is.

Well with the fact that Lebron can run point. The team would do it right away. That's the scary part. I'm glad that my fellow fans wouldn't.

He hasn't.

And i still LOL at the idea that Lebron hasn't proven he's a winner. Look what he did in Cleveland. He turned a 17 win team into a finals team, the team that came closest to beating the future champs in 08, and then two back to back 60 plus win seasons.

All while not having a good 2nd option or a quality team.

No superstar perimeter player has ever won anything with a team comparable to those Cavs.

Only Hakeem and Duncan have won titles with comparable talent. Thats it.

This is like asking if you would trade Wade for Kobe in 06..

Wade was the up and coming superstar and Kobe is THE SUPERSTAR.. but was still under criticism.. and hasn't proven anything individually.. in terms of winning.


I know you would bring up Kobe's 3 rings at that time..

But him and LeBron had diff. situations.. with all due respect to Kobe..

No..... not a chance.

And this question was posed to Bulls fans on the Bulls board back when Lebron was a free agent. The question asked, "would you trade DRose for Lebron straight up". And overwhelmingly the response was "NO". And from what I recall, that sentiment was unanimous - not a single person wanted that trade.

Quite simply: Drose is a winner.

Rose has has won big at every level. Dude won 4 grade school championships, a HS freshman championship and then "back to back" state championships in HS. Then took Memphis to the championship game. And now what he is doing for the Bulls speaks for itself.

Bron is a great player but no, we keep Rose.

Rose.


Lebron is not the right fit for Chicago ( the organization and the city).

i love the double standard, lebron has 3 hs state titles, his led his team to the nba finals but supposedly his not a winner, while mr. rose led his team to a championship game in the ncaa and he is a winner. lets not act like lebron hasn't done what rose is doing with a crappier roster.
