Rose just needs a post player and we could start seeing championships....
45 wins... you can't be serious. That's atleast a 50 win team... about equal with Orlando
I'm not a diehard... more only a passing fan of the Bulls, so this might not sound genuine coming from me, but, hell yeah over the past 6 years... I would have no doubt traded all players they've gotten within this span, including Rose for that roster. That team, along with Roger Mason, Jr who they also had, if put together today with 3-5 years of chemistry would no doubt be an eastern confernce final contender at minimum.
And nothing is a guarantee... the Bulls have scrubs, and no real potential except for Rose, the faster fans understand its not a give-in that a superstar will sign with the Bulls in 2010, the better. It's just like me as a Heat fan... in fact we have more money than pretty much everyone except Toronto in 2010, but Im not going to be over zealous just because of that. I know even with having a young core with Beasley and Chalmers, without Wade, Im pretty sure we have no chance of luring in another superstar.
I'd really hate for the Bulls to take a full gamble at 2010, not get anyone, and have no plan B like NY has done and suck for another decade. I've been saying this forever and a day, but I think they should move right now to try and get Boozer in the offseason. Then only worry about complimentary players in 2010.
