The Chicago Bulls are on the verge of bringing in Carmelo Anthony to complete the puzzle of winning a championship. But it seems this peice might be to big to fit with the rest of the puzzle. Basically, Carlos Boozer will be amnestied if not traded to free up cap room. The million dollar question is who else do you let go, Taj Gibson or Jimmy Butler? Both men bring intangibles to the team that can't be replaced.
Butler brings his defensive prowess and metal toughness to the game. His scoring seems to come at the right moment with his usual "And 1's." He is probably the most coachable player on the team.
Gibson brings intensity and toughness to the team. His athletic ability to rebound and go back up and power dunk the ball is unmatched. He has the best low post game and can score in many ways.
One thing is for sure, both men are valuable assets to the team and hopefully there is some way that those two can stay with the Bulls as they reel in Carmelo for a championship run.
