    Is this a ploy for New York to give the absolute max

    He really wants to go to LA

    He is trying to make a S&T happen to go to Chicago

    it's always been completely obvious that there were only two possible max destinations for Carmelo: Los Angeles and New York.

    The Chicago think is completely hairbrained. Even if they amnestied Boozer, which reportedly they definitely refuse to do, they would still be asking Carmelo to take a $7M+ a year paycut.

    Seriously, WHO the heck out there actually thought that was a "real possibility"? LoL at every new story that said Chicago offered Carmelo "his best chance to contend for a title".

    WHAT?? Does anybody see Chicago contending for anything? Seriously. They got bounced out of the East in the first round like nothing, and that is the Eastern conference. That means they'd probably have < 25 wins in the West.

    Honestly, New York has upped its game considerably. Phil Jackson is making moves and you can see the feeling is different now. If anything, NEW YORK is by far the preferable destination over Chicago if Carmelo is actually serious about winning.

    Of course combining Carmelo with Kobe and Randle and Pau is competitive right for the first second, and Carmelo won't have to deal with the Amare nonsense or Phil trying to lowball him in the media etc.

    The Bulls were the 4th seed without Rose. They literally had no offense the last 2 seasons, yet managed to make the playoffs as a top 5 seed and beat a more talented Nets teams last year. Assuming Rose returns to form and you add Melo, you're talking about adding AT LEAST 50 ppg to probably the best defensive team in the league. If you're still not sold, then you're just delusional.

    Top 5 seed in the East isn't saying much.

    Ok, first, let me tell you what Chicago has ever won without Michael Jordan. Hint: It starts with JACK SQUAT!!

    Second, delusional? How about all these people who think that Carmelo will sign a 4 year deal at $16M, when he can get appx $25M a year from the Knicks for FIVE YEARS.

    In case your counting, that's, hmmmmmm, let me see. $9M + $9M + $9M + $9M + $25M = $61 MILLION DOLLARS less if he signs with Chicago. Or $36M less if they max him out in year 5.

    Oh, and that's IF the Bulls owner was willing to amnesty Carlos Boozer. Which it is painfully obvious they will NEVER do, because that would be like an extra $16M to their salary expense right off the top (and unprotected from the phony "salary cap"). So, in other words that is money that they COULD spend, but they just won't.

    But even if they DID, do you really expect Melo to take a $61 million dollar "haircut"? What a laugh.

    And don't even get me started on how "championship competitive" the Bulls are. LoL they got absolutely run by the Wizards, and oh yeah it sure looked the Wizards offense was just having its way with the awesome Chicago defense. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that series didn't look like a big defensive victory for them.

    Of course we all hope that Rose can get back on the court after missing two years. He is super fun to watch play. But c'mon, selling Carmelo the Bulls as a "championship team" is just LoL funny.

    Sorry I am not trying to be nasty or anything, but I am just a bit fed up with all these weird NBA free agency narratives that have been floating around unchallenged for 3 months.

    Knicks would have been more dangerous than the Bulls if they had made the playoffs. It's conceivable they could've been good enough to beat either the Bulls OR a first round Indiana.

    I mean let's be honest, the Bulls weren't going to hurt a fly in the playoffs, even in the East, which was incredibly soft this year. Indiana absolutely backed into the ECFs that was complete joke. So, any team that couldn't even credibly compete in that tournament is just nowhere near championship caliber.
