How Would You Lure LeBron To The Bulls?

New, 1 comment

Teams are going to be lining up starting early Friday morning for the top NBA free agents.

In the Sun-Times, Rick Morrissey says the Bulls should make sure that LeBron knows he and Derrick Rose would make an unstoppable tandem:

The 25-year-old James wants to win, but he’s also acutely aware of his legacy. If he wants that legacy to be of a player who latched onto to somebody else’s train (Wade’s) to win multiple titles, then he should join the Heat.

If he wants his legacy to be of a player who took the best parts of a rising star (Rose) and an established star who had previously won nothing (Bosh), forming a winner, then he should pick the Bulls.

Maybe the difference between the Miami and Chicago scenarios is minimal. But watching Rose and James make each other better would be a lot more fun that watching Wade and James try to remember whose turn it is to shoot the ball.

John Jackson writes that bringing Chris Bosh to Chicago would help lure LeBron here:

According to sources, the Bulls may try to lock up center/power forward Chris Bosh first and use that as a part of their sales pitch to James, the main domino in the NBA’s high-stakes free-agent game.

↵

With Bosh on board to go along with point guard Derrick Rose and center Joakim Noah, the Bulls could say they’re the only team James is considering that already has two former All-Stars (Bosh and Rose) and a potential one (Noah).

So what would YOU do to convince LeBron that Chicago is the place for him? Leave suggestions in the comments.
