One Star Away

I've been a big-time Bulls' fan since the days of Bob Love, Chet Walker, and Norm Van Leir (back in the 70s). The current team is good but not great, and like most NBA teams, needs one superstar to go with a strong supporting cast.

I am doubtful that the Bulls' will re-sign Ben Gordon. If they did, it likely would be a sign-and-trade deal. Here's what I'd like to see: sign-and-trade Gordon, plus Tyrus Thomas, and one of their two 1st round draft picks for Amare Stoudemire.

Think about their starting five:

Point Guard: Derrick Rose
Shooting Guard: John Salmons
Small Forward: Loul Deng
Power Forward: Amare Stoudemire
Center: Joakim Noah

That's speed, height, athleticism, shooting, youth, rebounding.

And, they still would have Hinrich, Tim Thomas, and Brad Miller coming off the bench, plus their other first round draft pick. That's a rotation nine-deep which is as good as it gets in the NBA.

If they could pull off this trade, they would be a 5 and virtual lock for the NBA Finals in 2010.

I'm also a fan of the Bulls - almost as much as I am of the Lakers. I caught on with the Jordan era growing up, and loved every championship season. The Bulls are pretty much the only team I root for that isn't in Los Angeles. And yes, I agree with you that all they need is one key player to glue it all together. What do you think of Phil Jackson? I'm now so used to hearing opinions on him as the Lakers' coach, would love to hear about how he did things back in Chi-town...

There are very few teams anywhere whose history can be so evenly split down the middle. I can name the Chicago Bulls and their citymate baseball team, the Cubs, but that's just off the top of my head. Anyway, basketball is becoming a bigtime global sport. I get the sense that the NBA will one day be America's response to the English Premier League: The largest, most popular league for a sport which has many respected leagues and teams around the world because it's so accessible to anyone. The Bulls …

As a big-time Bulls fan, I must say I'm a little disappointed in where the team is going.  I do like Derrick Rose and think he'll be a solid pro.  But I don't think he's necessarily a team centerpiece like LeBron or Kobe.    Too many "complimentary" players like Luol Deng, Ben Gordon, and Tyrus Thomas.  They added some vets in Brad Miller and Tim Thomas, but I think those are just short-term fixes.    It'll be interesting to see where they go …
