Derrick Rose is happy with his team just the way they are. As he should be. The Bulls are, after all, the best team in the Eastern Conference. And they're just a few percentage points behind the Thunder, who are currently the best team in the NBA. Yet, everyone except D-Rose seems infatuated with the idea of the Bulls trading for Dwight Howard before the March 15th trade deadline. It's gotten so bad, in fact, that Rose went off last night before the Bulls took on the Magic. Well, "went off" by his standards anyway.
"It's definitely getting old where I'm sick and tired of hearing it," he said. "Like I've said, this city speaks for itself. Chicago, marketing wise, is a great city. If someone chooses to come here, they definitely could, but I'm cool with the teammates I have...We have a winning record. It's not like we have to change anything."
AMEN. We can appreciate NBA teams doing whatever it takes to get better. But, at this point, how much better are the Bulls gonna get by adding Howard? And wouldn't he just disrupt whatever chemistry they've built on the court? Leave it alone, Chicago. And, to the Magic: Please trade Dwight Howard. As in, ASAP. Like D-Rose, we're getting a little bit sick and tired of hearing all the trade rumors surrounding him, too. So, please make it stop.
