It's easier in many ways to get players that compliment your guy, than it is to get players that your guy compliments. Derrick Rose should be Batman, not Robbin.
What I am getting at, is let's not spend every dime we've got on Wade, Lebron, or Johnson. If we are to sign an All-Star, it needs to be Bosh, Boozer, or Stoudemire. A player like that would allow Rose to flourish, and play at an even higher level, all while still getting better.
If we strike out on one of those three? David Lee is available, as are several other 2nd tier type bigs that fit the bill. Look, I don't have this master plan of exactly who to sign and how like a lot of the people on here seem to have.
I believe that the era of winning championships with a star center and star shooting gaurd is all but over. The NBA is unquestionably becoming a point gaurd dominated league. With Nash, Kidd, and Parker still around and playing at an extremley high level, the new generation of stars is absolutley point gaurd dominated. Rose, Paul, Williams, Jennings, Rondo, Evans, the list goes on.
I understand that the four best players in the league right now (Wade, James, Bryant, and Anthony) are not point gaurds. But with the exception of Kobe (who has all sorts of help around him), none of them have rings. Who has the best shot, besides Kobe, this year? It can be argued between James and Anthony...who happen to play withing Mo Williams and Chauncy Billups, respectively. Now, of course I understand that Anthony and James are the centerpieces of their team, but my point remains the same. To win a championship in the new era in the NBA, you need a star point gaurd. We are lucky enough to have one, and he is most likley going to be a top 3 of his generation at the position when it's all said and done.
Let's let Derrick be our main guy. If we get a star that compliments him, then excellent. If not, let's build a title team buy finding a roster that fits him perfectly. It's not easy, but there is no such thing as an easy way to build a champuonship contender in any sport (unless you are the worst team in the league, get pissed you dont win the lottery, and trade for Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett).
NOTE: It's not that I wouldn't be thrilled if we got Johnson, Wade, James, or Roy. All i'm saying is that if we are going for a star: Bosh, Stoudemire, and Boozer should be the first choices.
