That would have just been wrong. D-Rose is destined to dominate elite competition, not join forces with them.

That team isn't possible under the salary cap. Rose makes a tad more than Beasley and they had to get rid of him to make it work.

Anyway, I think this is some really pointless speculation.

Not realistic. If Rose had gone to Miami, LeBron and Bosh wouldn't be there.

Either:

A) Rose wouldn't be that good because he wouldn't get a chance to develop under Wade and then he would have been traded like Beasley

or

B) Rose and Wade would have been a deadly backcourt duo last season and Miami would have been contenders. They wouldn't have blown up the team to get Lebron and Bosh. Most likely they just sign Bosh and then you have Rose, Wade, Bosh instead of the current big 3.

Funny how you call his post predicatable right after your post, which has to be the most predictable chicago fan response to any blasphemous idea of Rose not being on your beloved team.

Some people on here asking to have the thread closed because it's too speculative??? Really?? Thinking about the possibility of the team with the most ping pongs that year, getting the first overall pick, and picking the best PG in the draft when the Heat was in dire need of a PG is too speculative?? Some people need to get over themselves.

Granted, It's an impossible lineup as presented, but I'm sure everyone has thought of the possibilty and my idea was that Lebron probably would have either stayed in Cleveland, or maybe even N.Y., becaause Riley would have had wade go hard after Bosh, and with a stacked team like Rose, Wade, and Bosh..... I think Lebron would have felt compelled to go to a team like N.Y. because of the attention he would have gotten and the desire of the owner to spend money on building a contender.

I think it's a valid idea and question. Sorry you got flamed on the thread, dude.

Also thought about that "A" myself. Probably wouldn't be the star he is now, but definitely still an elite playmaker averaging 10 dimes a game. Maybe 16 points a game? But you don't find his ball-handling, speed and court vision everyday. Great player, and Riley surely new it. He hated drafting Beasley, and I think the way he was treated down here was proof of that

In case you've never noticed, "what if" threads do not go well around here.

And his post was identical to 90% of the posts in this thread, which came from not only bulls fans, but heat fans, and fans of other teams.

thats why we traded beasly

We could have kept Beasely and would have been able to keep Rose. And think we would have been able to sign him to a giant deal since we would have his bird rights.

i cant even begin to start where this is just so ridiculous and unrealistic... but ill give my time up anyways... so number 1) if they drafted Rose, Wade would probably have never went out and tested the free agent market, and with that there would have been no chance at signing Bosh or LBJ because they would have maxed out Wade, planned on maxing out Rose just like the bulls are doin... so.. No money and no room. 2) They would be like the bulls are now. Building a team around your stars and just having a very very solid lineup where everyone plays their part. So honestly there is no chance at this lineup IF the Heat drafted Derrick Rose. Sad thing is, they didn't and well look where the team that did is now.. =) Gl in the playoffs boyss

It would've been Rose Wade & Boozer in miami. Still really good team

barreleffact
04-12-2011, 02:54 PM
Rose is exactly where he should be....in chicago. It was rigged.

Fixed that for you. :)

But in all seriousness, I've contemplated this a bit recently. Rose would not have been happy in that squad. His growth would have been very limited, and his strengths would have been overshadowed. He would be the best shooter on the team too which is terrible. Too many slashers and not enough shooters.

However, they still probably win. This scenario was very possible back then too. I believe it was 08 that they decided to play together, and if Rose would have been drafted they still would have cut salary for Lebron and Bosh.

A better question may be what if they had chosen Mayo, instead. Mayo addressed the shooting need that Bibby does but with better defense.

Yes to your question. But I'm not sure if that 500k would've made a difference or not. You're probably right though.

What if Wade Bosh Lebron Rose Kobe Dwight went back in a time machine to 1991, signed with the Bulls with Jordan, and then they all signed with the Lakers in 1998, won like 20 championships from 1991-2011, and Kobe met his younger self and then decided to be on the same team? Would the world explode from this time paradox?

nah, we're good with this guy (http://www.nba.com/media/heat/wade7_300_060620.jpg). And this guy (http://blog4today.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/lebron-mvp.jpg).

U got yourself a nice player, and yes, I wanted him back in '08. But Heat fans are more concerned with winning championships than seeing one of our guys win MVP to be honest. I mean of course we're gonna campaign for them over the course of the season, but to suggest we're jealous of Rose is ridiculous lol. We have 2 of the top 3 players in the league.

MIA struggled to adjust to Lebron and Wade both being ball dominant. I'm not sure a 3rd ball dominant player would be the best thing.
