After much speculation and a report of Joakim Noah having talks with superstar forward Carmelo Anthony, all signs are pointing to Carmelo Anthony signing with the Chicago Bulls this off season. This rumor is big since it involves Carmelo who is one of the most coveted players that is to be a free agent this year. But Chicago fans are lucky, so get ready to buy some new jerseys because Carmelo Anthony is going to the Bulls.
After a horrible year by the New York Knicks who won’t likely be in the playoffs, Anthony seems to have had enough disappointments and will be cleaning out his locker. This season is very frustrating for the Anthony and the Knicks who are in the 11th seed after many were expecting the Knicks to be one of the teams of the Eastern Conference to make it to the NBA finals.
This is extremely bad news for the Knicks organization and puts them in a tight spot. With Melo possibly leaving, J.R Smith and Tyson Chandler playing worse than expected, and chances of A’mare Stoudemire leaving to go to a championship contender team, the Knicks will be forced into another rebuilding process and will be out of any championship talks. The Knicks will end up being third in line, behind the Lakers and the Celtics for losing talent and ending up in the bottom of their respective conferences.
The Chicago Bulls will now be a threat in the east with the likes of Carmleo Anthony and Joakim Noah playing together, but the most exciting part is the return of Derrick Rose which will make the Bulls one of the tougher if not toughest team to beat in the East next to the Heat and the Pacers.
