It seems inevitable that Derrick Rose will come away with a ring one day to set next to the multiple MVP trophies that are bound to start accumulating on his mantle.
The Bulls are still very much so alive in the NBA playoffs. They won 62 games this year and produced the league's MVP. Why mess up a good thing?
They have to compete with the Heat in the East. Rose could arguably be the third best player on the floor when they do so. They are going to need backup to compete, not just this year, but year in and year out.
They are loaded with talent. Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Ronnie Brewer and Carlos Boozer are all a huge part of what they do. This is a superstar-driven league, though, and championship teams need multiple superstars to come away with a ring.
With the addition of Howard, the Bulls would have a huge advantage over the Heat in the paint. They have plenty of talent on the team, so they will be able to keep the core of their team intact while acquiring Howard. Twenty-five-year-old Howard and 22-year-old Rose could dominate the NBA for years to come.
