This is a memo to John Paxson, Gar Foreman, or whoever is running things up at the Berto Center.

Say NO to Chris Bosh.

I don't care if everyone else says no and you are stuck with all that money or you score big and bring LeBron or Wade to town and they want you to send Luol Deng packing to Toronto so they can bring their buddy Bosh to town. To quote my DARE teacher back in fifth grade:

Just say NO!

I have let it be known before how my opinion of Bosh has changed over this past season. I view him as a player who puts up big numbers on a bad team that really doesn't help that team win. When he is surrounded by great players, like on the Olympic team, he plays great but in no way is viewed as the main guy.

This week, Bosh gave the Raptors a list of teams he would accept a sign and trade to. This guy isn't even thinking of signing anywhere as a free agent. He will not leave the money on the table. This is of course just in case he doesn't decide to re-sign with Toronto. His four teams are the Heat, Knicks, Lakers, and yes Da Bulls. Also being reported is Bosh would like to join buddy LeBron James if he does decide to sign with the Bulls or Knicks. I don't know how many times I can say it.

Just Say NO!

If you trade for Bosh his contract will become huge dead weight within a couple years and put you way over the luxury tax line once you have to extend Noah and Rose. So please in no situation say yes to Bosh. Please target someone like Carlos Boozer or Joe Johnson and if their price tag is too high there is always David Lee.

I don't know if any of those other guys will help the Bulls win a title but I know Chris Bosh will have no effect on this team bringing title No. 7 to town.
