Either I'm wrong and this concedes smokescreens, or direct line has it that James will be linked to Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade by tomorrow night.
Chris Broussard, one of the most regarded insiders, broke after-hour news that James will join Wade and Bosh in Miami, dragging Rose's seldom seen contour into the mix of things.
Derrick Rose in the video above, which is courtesy of CBS Chicago, seems very apprehensive to what may be regarded as ominous in the coming hours.
Simply, he knows that Lebron ain't comin' here and that's all he wrote.
The Sports Nation will make no doubt after 15 minutes of watching tomorrow's special on ESPN featuring James, where he'll awkwardly announce whether Cleveland has his heart or the Heat have his best interest.
And from the way things are shaping up, I'm not mad at Bulls management.
A lot of fans are prone to blaming them for what they are likely to assure themselves of in less than 24-hours.
(Lebron James going to Miami.)
Reinsdorf isn't for grooming egos. And that, which apparently wasn't done during their meetings with the "King," bestows as a welcoming sign to egoistic players like Wade, James and Bosh.
So ironically the signing of Boozer had accordance. And that was expected when you review in retrospect.
Carlos Boozer's formal agreement was the backing of professionalism, an adult with legitimate recognition by own effort and hard-work.
Notes: I'm hearing a lot of Bulls supporters chuck in regards to signing J.J. Redick. I'm not with that. Redick was on an Orlando team that won constantly and didn't contribute competently. Therefore, since Thibs is the coach, and lives by defensive switches, it's only fair to invite Ronnie Brewer's name to the party.
I've also heard that David Kahn in willing to trade Al Jefferson. If we can somehow swap him and Corey Brewer, a former college teammate of Noah, for Luol Deng and picks, then I'm all in.
The most crucial aspect at this juncture is building through depth and around Rose.
Enough of the limited players that can only shoot. My brain hurts.
