Another LeBron Angle

I'm hearing Chicago is out. But look at this:


PG: Derrick Rose
SG: Mike Miller
SF: LeBron James
PF: David Lee
C:   Joakim Noah


PG: Derrick Rose
SG: Mike Miller
SF: LeBron James
PF: Carlos Boozer
C:  Joakim Noah


Luol Deng, Taj Gibson, James Johnson

Right now, the Bulls are sitting north of $22 million for next year.Add $20 million for LeBron, $10 million for Lee, $2-3 million for Miller to play on a winner, and then the MLE to spend on another shooter off the bench and a backup point man. This team has a shooter, great rebounding, a couple of superior defenders, and many pick-and-roll options. David Lee could be better defending with Noah back to protect the rim. Heck, maybe Thib turns Lee into a defensive beast (he did a good job with Baby). With Boozer, he struggles a little defending big 4's, but again, with Noah behind him in Thib's system, I see this being a really tough team, defensively. Perhaps much better than the last two regular season champs. Just an option: you make the call.
