Re: "MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL!"

You take Boozer simply because he's making around $47 million in these last three seasons of his deal. Amare has $65 million and three years to go (both contracts including this season). No argument, money-wise.

However, strictly based on play...it's not that far apart. For entertainment purposes, I'll make the argument for Amare.

The Bulls are top 10 in the league in rebounding. You can replace Boozer with a lesser-rebounder in Amare, but gain a LOT of ground with Stoudemire's high FG% (which is around 59%). Amare wants to get to the rim, and that's the difference between the two players.

Currently, Chicago is 24th in FG%...and that is killer. An incredible defensive team who can't put the ball in the bucket...sounds like a team that can't stop Miami. When Rose returns, sure...that will help...but they were just 12th in FG% last season.

This Bulls teams is designed to score in many different ways. Hinrich, Robinson, and Belinelli are all three good 3PT shooters, but usually get caught up taking contested threes, or shots out of rhythm...so because of this, Chicago is a bottom 10 3PT shooting team in the NBA. They also have guys who fall in love with jumpers, including Joakim Noah and the other bigs.

Not a single player on the Chicago Bulls is shooting 49% or better from the floor, despite being the 3rd-4th best team in the East (Miami, Indiana, and Boston could knock them out of the playoffs as it stands, no Rose...not sure about the Knicks right now).

Insert Rose, and you'll probably see Boozer's FG% climb back up a bit, probably Noah's, but I'm not going to say it will be THAT high. Rose won't be the same player when he first sneaks back into the five, and the team won't have enough time to adjust to the small things Rose can't do anymore.

Defensively...neither are worth mentioning, but Amare contests more shots, and with Thibodeau on the sidelines, I think the Bulls can benefit from that as much as they do Boozer making attempts to body others down low.

Amare can make the Bulls a better, more efficient offensive team...especially when you put him on the floor with someone like Hinrich, which could also help Kirk out. Less rebounding, but I think you COULD cover that up by playing Taj Gibson a bit more, which you would be able to do if you decide to play Stoudemire 25 minutes a night until he has worked his way into form and has learned the playbook.

But then, again, comes the money and the health...and that's where you likely stick with the familiar dog.

Re: "MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL!"

Spurs have had multiple 10+ winning streaks as well as a bunch of other win streaks while resting their starters and yet I never saw a thing and yet these heat douches are everywhere.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

The Heat are the best team in the league, bring in the most ratings, have the best player in the world and play in a big market. What do you expect?

The Spurs are record wise the best team in the league. Don't give me your shit.

Re: "MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL!"

They've been the best team in the NBA record-wise for the past three years and have no Finals appearances to show for it. Regular season win/loss record doesn't translate to best team.

Re: "MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL!"

It also helps when, in crunch time, all the calls go your way. I swear anytime D Wade or LeBron miss a shot, they think it's because they've been fouled and they usually get the call, it absolutely sickens me. Most of the top stars do it, but with them and the likes of Melo and a few others it's just worse.

Also, Miami by no means is a big market in terms of sports. The Heat games are only sold out on nights where they face the likes of the Lakers, Spurs, Thunder, etc. Other games, the crowd doesn't start filing in until late in the first, halfway through the second. It's south beach, that place is more about the parties and night life than a Heat basketball game, Marlins baseball game or Dolphins football game.



NOTHING WAS THE SAME

Re: "MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALL!"

Lebron is one of the few players who can say that they are the best while not having a HOF coach ever coaching them. Kobe and MJ had Phil. Duncan has Pop. Wade had Riley. Can you imagine how much better Lebron can be with a HOF coach?
