The Bulls are Screwed!

July 6, 2010

So it’s been 5 days since the free agency bonanza has started and the longer it goes on the more and more I think that the Bulls are going to get the scraps of the draft class.  Amare has already agreed to go to the Knicks (really Amare?  really?!)  and it’s looking like Wade and Lebron are going to stay at home and Bosh wants to play with one of them.

So are the Bulls totally screwed?  Or am I totally being paranoid?

I know that the only people that have signed are players that the Bulls weren’t really after, but the constant reports have me thinking things over.  I originally said I wanted Bosh and Johnson but it looks like Bosh wants to play with Wade and/or Lebron and Johnson is staying in Atlanta.  Now Bosh has also said that he has certain teams he wants to play for next season.  He has also said that he wants a max contract and is not willing to part ways with cash.

So what does that all mean?  It looks like it’s going to be an all or nothing deal for the Bulls.  And Bosh is the key to it all.  If the Bulls can get Bosh to come to Chicago (which he wants to do) then they may be able to bring Wade with him and create the most dominant team in the East.

However, if the Bulls can’t get Bosh/Wade then it looks like they’ll be left with Boozer/Lee leftovers.  This creates a lineup of David Lee, Carlos Boozer, Noah, Rose, and Deng.  A lineup that means they would have gotten rid of Gordon, Salmons, and Hinrick for essentially nothing.  The Bulls would be better but would not be a real contender.

And that Lebron James guy.  Yeah, don’t count on it.  I’m betting on him staying in Cleveland.  Cleveland offers him more opportunity to become a legend.  Bringing a championship to his hometown is more appealing then anything anybody else could offer.  The Cavs just have to prove that they can get the talent needed to help James win a championship.

So now I am going to make a bold prediction and say that if the Bulls are unable to get the high caliber free agents they are trying to get and this team is therefore unable to compete with some of the other teams in the East then Gar Foreman and John Paxson are out of a job.  Wasting an opportunity like this would be one of the biggest screw ups in franchise history.

    Update: Chris Bosh is now officially going to Miami to play with Dwayne Wade! Called it. Bulls are screwed! Hopefully we can at least get Boozer.
