Derrick Rose is already out for the season with a knee injury, and the chances of him playing basketball again is a toss up. Head coach Tom Thibodeau of the Chicago Bulls has to be proud of himself for signing point guard D.J. Augustin to fill in the point guard spot. Augustine has made an immediate impact for the Bulls and the team has their fifth win in six games played. D.J. Augustin is currently averaging 12 points a game with 5 assists and his teams was on a roll Wednesday night after defeating the Detroit Pistons 105-94. In that game, Augustin scored 26 points.
Now just imagine if Carmelo Anthony was playing for Chicago with a solid Bulls defense. I believe Anthony would be a good fit in my opinion because he’s proven to be a solid shooter from just about anywhere on the floor, he can be reliable to make shots in moments of the game, and he’ll bring energy to this Bulls squad for just being apart of the team. If Derrick Rose were to return next season, just look at how scary this team could be with Carmelo Anthony. Having Derrick Rose, Mike Dunleavy, Carmelo Anthony, Taj Gibson, and Joakim Noah is scary for a starting lineup. Oh, you can’t forget D.J. Augustin!. He’s playing at a high level and was a good steal for Chicago. If I were to ask 10 people why would Carmelo be a good addition to this team, a majority would say because he can score. Yeah, I think we all know that. Look at it from this angle, Melo would bring lots of energy to this team. Why do I say this? Have you ever seen how pumped Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah get when playing basketball? For those who haven’t seen how energetic they get, take a look at Bulls game when you get a chance. I’ve never seen players who play a game like it’s their last game they’ll ever play. Carmelo Anthony can score a lot of points and that’ll pump this squad up even more. This team plays with a lot of heart and passion. Yes, defense wins games but a team must have some type of offense that can score. Adding Carmelo Anthony would give the Bulls an extra player who can put a lot of points on the board. There’s no doubt in my mind Melo would be an impact to this team if he ends up playing for the Chicago Bulls.
