We all know who we want to come here, but who should be our 1st priority? And do we just line up visits, or should we go to whoever that #1 priority is and be at his door at 12:01AM at the beginning of Free Agency?
To me this is a big time matter. We all know Lebron, DWade, and Bosh are our top 3 targets, but they're everyone's top 3 targets. So do u wait and line up visits for each one, wine and dine em then let them make a decision. Using that strategy could be very dangerous, because what if the guy we really want, doesn't visit us first. Most teams don't let a free agent get away once they get into town. At least, that's my experience from watching the NFL, u very rarely see a guy visit and not sign with the 1st team he visits.
Or r u at ur main guy's door at the very start of Free Agency. This is the one that I would go with, and the one that has seemed to work for Paxson and Co. before, remember the Ben Wallace signing (not his actual playing, but just the signing). But the downside to that strategy is, if u do that and don't get the guy, then u've probably alienated the other 2. So if this is the way we r going to proceed, we better be 100% certain that not only this is the guy we really want, but that this guy is going to sign with us.
I have to say that I loved reading Bosh's rant on the Raptors, and I have really changed my mind and now think it's a certainty he rolls. One observation, I made from reading the comments, is that the 2 main things he is having an issue with are: selfish play and team defense. And those 2 areas r strengths of our team. We don't really have any black holes in the lineup anymore, where the ball gets to them and stops, our offense works best (well any offense for that matter, except Cleveland) when the ball is getting moved around. And before Noah went out we were a top defensive team. Another thing I saw and took notice to, was that he feels like he's doing things by himself, with not much help around from teammates. This has to bode well for the Bulls this summer. I would be at his door at 12:01AM, with max contract in hand.
What do u guys think?
