08:15 AM ET 08.26 | Chicago native Dwyane Wade is bullish on the Bulls. [Wade] said Thursday that while the Chicago Bulls are a great team, they might be one player away from being an annual championship contender. "They met us in the Eastern Conference finals, and they were one player away from making it a very, very, very tough series," Wade told ESPNChicago.com during an event for his "Wade's World" charities. "Derrick Rose is evolving into a phenomenal player. You could look and see they're one player away from being there every year." The Bulls went 3-0 vs. the Heat during the regular season and notched the NBA's best record at 62-20. But Miami found its rhythm as the season progressed and free-agent additions LeBron James and Chris Bosh sharpened their chemistry with Wade.

Here is a guy that could have been that player, but is talking about the Bulls need a player. Ironic, they have 3 superstars and could not get it done with the Mavs. Now that is sad!

QUOTE(#3):

After all, the Bulls of the late 90's proved that they could win with just 3 superstars, without a strong PG or C.

... and some seriously substandard players as well. Luc Longley? Bill Wennington? BJ Armstrong?

Because it's not about superstars, it's about the TEAM.

BJ was not "substandard". He was a good player.

That ain't no Bull, Bro.

QUOTE(#2):

Anyway, if Wade feels that Chicago is one star away, then maybe he should leave Miami and join the Bulls. That way, Chicago gets to become a title contender, and he gets to be part of a title contender as well.

Wade is already part of a title contender.

Which of course then would make the Knicks a team away from contention.

Perfect.

Gee, you guys are talking like there's actually going to be a season.

Good point. I'm betting against it.
