Carlos Boozer has agreed to sign with the Bulls for 5 years 75-80 million dollars. You know I was actually playing NBA Live and put Boozer in Chicago. Just a guess I mean he was a free agent and well I wanted to play as him especially since I like to use guys with weird shots. (Don't ask) So I put him in Chicago. So I hear the news of him going there an hour later. Wow I was just amazed with me being right again. I knew since Donnie Walsh had this plan for 2010 2 years ago. Amar’e was going to be a Knick. I mean D’Antoni’s system would want Amar’e. Bosh well that was more of a wildcard. I knew he was leaving. But it was between Chicago and Miami.

I think the Bulls definitely got better with Boozer. I’m not going to say championship. I mean that’s ludicrous. But they are a very good team. And could get better. So I won’t say much until all this is settles.

That being said. You read the title. People underestimate this deal with LeBron’s future. The three big pieces. The pieces to help these teams not as the main guy but as the big man who could get you 20 and 10. Were Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Carlos Boozer. Amar’e went to New York. Chris Bosh will go to Miami whether on a sign and trade or just straight up being a free agent. And now the final guy Carlos Boozer is now a Bull. People are going to ask. Why didn’t I include David Lee? Well first off David Lee is not a max guy and I think his numbers were raised because of the style of D’Antoni. Plus would I seriously have Lee as the second best guy in a championship team? I mean I love Lee but there are serious red flags with him. Because it was a contract year, he was in a system that helped him, and the guy isn’t big enough or good enough on defence to guard the opposing player in his position. So anyway.

 

And then people will dog me about well this team won 60 games the past two seasons. Yes they did. But tell me. Did they reach the finals? No. Look LeBron returning to Cleveland is now gone because those guys that could’ve helped LeBron stay. Are now in different places. Not named Cleveland. I don’t think LeBron will come back with the same team that failed him and to be honest he failed. He has the chance to go to a better team or a team with a better sidekick. Right now it’s between Miami, Chicago, and yes I will now admit New York. I said he will never go the Knicks. But there’s a chance. The choices will be clearer at either 9:01 P.M. Western because I live in Los Angeles. Or just this morning. Because if Bosh comes in to Miami as a Free Agent. Miami is out of the picture. So it would be Between New York and Chicago. Now Chicago would make more sense in a talent standpoint. Although to be honest LeBron with Rose wouldn’t work because they both need the ball. Unless LeBron leaves it all to Rose. So if that happens he’s a Bull. If not. He’s a Knick. So it’s between those three as of now. But we’ll know more tomorrow morning. I guarantee that. But the nail in the Coffin has now been hit with Boozer going to Chicago. LeBron is out of Cleveland. And after that. The Cavaliers will have to rebuild. Jamison will be a hard piece to move and  Mo Williams will be gone. I’m sorry to say it. But I just don’t see LeBron staying after what happened earlier. But we’ll know for sure tomorrow.
