Okay this is basically my thoughts of why think it could work but its would take alot of if's which is why i think it'd never happen.
Okay if it would be possible to sign one star next year i think it would massively upgrade the bulls if and only if Iverson goes 6th man for us or we sign a star pf. I know Iverson said he wouldn't do that again but I think would if the bulls had a serious contender built. I think we would have to get him this year for it to benefit us though but if we could keep kirk for one year and have a 1-2 of rose-iverson,kirk-salmons and even a streaky pargo would be pretty darned competitive. If deng isn't at full strength u go rose ai and salmons. Now AI would have to revert to @ least a 22ppg scorer for it to work but i think he would fit the system WAY better than ben gordon ever has considering ai attacks the basket to and he jacks just as much as bg but knows how to jack within the flow of the game which doesnt kill momentum.
Now the real pay dirt comes next year depending on which fA we sign (lets face it with out a star next year we are doomed for at least 5yrs guys maybe 7-8) If we were to land wade we'd have Rose, Wade, AI as the sixth would finally force us to ship kirk unless he takes a paycut(his defense would be missed) But we would hands down be the meaning of transition basketball. plus side besides looking pretty darned close the late 80's pistons playing 6th man would extend and rejuvenate Ai's career and he could be 3 times better the jason terry and up to par with ginobili
But If we were to get AI i think it would be more dominant to go pf next year rose/ai/deng/bosh/noah -kirk or salmons(more realistically like james johnson by next year) 6 th man would be exactly the mold of type of team our system demands lightning fast transition, speedy bigs we would just defensive role players to balance it out
Ai would also be cheaper than a wade or joe johnson by at least about 6-13 million and we could always just draft a defensive guy to start early and then send in ai. I mean Ai and rose would be crazy together if we had shooters around them it would work because rose is very unselfish and could learn TONS from ai.
The bull would only have to sell the role to ai and assure him they have his back, clearly explain his value to the team which could be huge derrick rose would 10 times more inspired to play alongside ai because of the legend factor. and ai could change his image( in a huge market that already loves him) if he leaves the drama which i dont thin would be a major problem if he's feels wanted.
i just dont know how money would break down but what do u guys think? dont kill me just think about a healthy ai and how fast our offense would be.
