If Rose gets healthy enough to play, he can be traded

[pulled this comment from another thread because it was distractingly dumb (and I try not to delete stuff) -yfbb]

I’m offering the Lakers Rose, Noah, and Boozer for Howard, Gasol, and Nash (Bulls have to throw VRad or Nazr into the trade to make it work). I can’t stomach Gasol anymore and this year have finally become a hater after defending him for years, but the fact that his contract is one less year than Boozer’s is nice, and the Lakers are looking to get rid of him.

I don’t know if the Lakers would be willing to blow it up, though I think there’s no chance the Bulls will even though they should. I’m more worried about Rose regaining elite status than Howard, and I just don’t see him turning down a max deal in Chicago since he will be "the man," but I think the Lakers have a very real concern that he will bolt for Dallas since that team is a disaster and Kobe is Kobe. And Bulls have to dump Hinrich in the trade. I probably valued this too highly!

I wanted the Bulls to trade for Rose for Howard before he got hurt, but yeah, I know these things only happen in fantasy land and this trade will never be discussed.

The Bulls will never win a title with Derrick Rose, they might with Dwight Howard. I’m not wrong given a strategy that seeks maximum title equity. For a strategy that seeks to be a good team always making the conference semifinals or finals, it would be a poor trade; here, the Bulls front office and fanbase appear to be well-matched.

(that post is barely readable, my apologies. Obviously given the content and the quality I have been hitting the bottle.)
