The Chicago Bulls have been playing admirably this season, despite some trying circumstances. If they want to actually contend for a championship though, then they have to take some extreme measures this summer. This year? A title is just not in the cards, but that still probably comes as crushing news to Joakim Noah. Here are five things that they can do in the offseason to make their franchise center a bit happier.
The caveat here would be that they should not do this unless they know for certain that Carmelo Anthony would be willing to come to Chi-town for less money. The main reason I think they should amnesty Boozer is because of his horrendous defense. I am a Taj Gibson guy all the way, and it would be difficult to talk me out of that one.
If Carmelo wants to win a title, then the Bulls are clearly his best option. Would 'Melo get along with the coaching staff though? I have my questions, because Anthony is not exactly famous for his defensive effort.
Don't you miss Nate Robinson in a Bulls uniform? The playoffs will not quite feel right without Robinson, and I truly wish the Bulls could bring back Kypto-nate. This is not a realistic possibility, but a man can dream. Right?
Jeff Van Gundy took a low blow to Derrick Rose's son lately, and if you missed it then google is your best friend. Rose is a former league MVP, but he is starting to feel more and more like this generation's Penny Hardaway.
Joakim Noah has put himself into the MVP conversation this season, but ultimately it is going to be Kevin Durant's award to lose in the home stretch. The Bulls need to build around Noah's passing ability from the high post in the future, and if they can add one or two more pieces, then the center will achieve his dream of winning a championship.
