Why is Melo telling the Bulls he doesn't want them to trade Taj Gibson? I mean if for nothing else the Bulls trade him and he waffles on going there headed back here...uhmmmmm wouldn't that weaken the Bulls? Why is he offering input on their roster if he's not really considering signing there?
Why didn't Melo offer perspective when he had the one on one sit down with Dolan forcing his way here about our roster? Why didn't he wait until he was officially able to opt out so we could have more flexibility?
I'm referring to when he forced his way here from Denver. Remember the meeting around the All-Star game with Dolan? But of course lockout was looming Melo couldn't chance his paper then but willing to potentially do it now to the degree he spends all day with 1 team even taking in a private workout session with the team's Star player.
Who does this?

Talk about disrepectful this is the pic the Rox used in their pitch to get Melo to Houston. Having him pictured in a number 7 the same number Lin is using.
Two years removed from Linsanity but that was the most exciting basketball I have watched from the Knicks in the last decade.
I wrote back then about the comparison to Flip Murray who replaced an injured Ray Allan and had a 20ppg average for a month or two but over the long run proved he was a journeyman NBA player and no superstar. I think Lin has proved Kobe correct when he said superstars don't come out of nowhere in the NBA, it just doesn't happen. Lin is a capable backup and no more.

Bulls must be on the verge of signing Melo or Pau Gasol or somehow getting both. I don't think they would amnesty Boozer for too many other reasons.
