NBA Free Agency…Bulls make their pitch to Carmelo Anthony


As a Knick fan this is hard to swallow only because it makes you wonder if melo doesn’t return to the knicks what is the back up plan. But if melo is swaded by what he saw in Chicago …then the Knicks had better had another course of action to replace a huge chunk of their offense. Nearly 28 points per game worth of offense. The Bulls spared no effort and dressed the United Center to impress. According to a published report the following took place…

Anthony arrived at a decked-out United Center in the afternoon with agent Leon Rose and coach Tom Thibodeau, a police SUV trailing their oversized limousine.

He walked past the Michael Jordan statue, waving to a small group of cheering fans as he went inside, where he spent much of the afternoon before getting a look at the soon-to-open practice facility across the street.

The Bulls believe they have a strong pitch and a simple selling point: Anthony can transform a playoff team into a championship contender.

They believe uniting Anthony with Rose and Joakim Noah would put them in position to contend for their first title since Jordan and Scottie Pippen led the way to two three-peats in the 1990s. And they certainly made their feelings clear on Tuesday, turning the arena into one big welcome mat.

Two giant digital images above the entrance on Madison Street showed Anthony in a Bulls No. 7 jersey dribbling next to a championship trophy, fans stopping to take pictures. Another image around the corner also showed him in a jersey dribbling.

Signs wrapping around corners of the building and stacked on top of each other read, ”Carmelo Anthony and Chicago basketball” and ”Melo” with a cropped Bulls logo.
