Mega Trade? Biggest Trade in Sports History?

ESPN analysts are calling it the biggest shake-up in sports history. It would leave 3 teams with a COMPLETELY different lineup. This trade would send Derrick Rose to Denver, Luol Deng to Golden State, Carmelo Anthony to Chicago, Chauncey Billups, Nene, and Aaron Afflalo to Golden State, David Lee and Steph Curry to Denver, and Monta Ellis to Chicago!

 

Chicago                                                  Denver                                                  Golden State:

    I would be SHOCKED if this trade actually went down. I don't see the Bulls giving away Rose. Right now, he's their franchise player. This is probably just a rumor just like how everyone thought Melo was going to the Lakers. Once again, the Lakers would have to give up Bynum. This probably won't happen. We shall see I guess.

    I am with adanny14 on this one. I don't see any chance the Bulls would give up Rose. He is such a young player and most likely the future of that franchise. Also, not that I'm a huge Warriors fan, but I don't see them giving up their dynamite backcourt for an aging Billups and a slowly maturing Afflalo. I am a Bulls freak so personally I hope it doesn't go through!

    I'm not so sure about the playoff experience. Rose was right there steppin up huge when the Bulls took the Celtics to 7 a couple years ago. And yes 2 franchise players would be nice to have but what happens when Melo gets sick of Chicago? I like Ellis also but if I were the Bulls front office, I keep the good thing they got goin now.

    Re: Mega Trade? Biggest Trade in Sports History?

    I agree with adanny14. These teams are basically throwing away their franchise players. We all know Melo is leaving Denver, but there's NO WAY that he'd become a Bull.

     

    Melo isn't going to L.A. either. The Lakers coach Phil Jackson has already dismissed rumors of trading Andrew Bynum to Denver. He's supposed to be their "future Shaq" and bring the Lakers to the Finals after Kobe retires.

     

    If Carmelo Anthony is going anywhere, it's New York. There is a 3-way trade in the process of being made. The Knicks would get Melo; the Timberwolves Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry; the Nuggets Corey Brewer, Wilson Chandler,  and a First-Round Pick.

     

    So, being a Knicks fan, I think the Knicks are FINALLY back in the playoffs.

     

    P.S. Chris Paul would like to start a Big Three in the Big Apple as well. See http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/knicks/post/_/id/2472/paul-to-melo-id-just-tell-him-to-do-whatever-his-heart-tells-him-to-do for more info.

    Whoa there. They may be stronger, but not better than the heat. Maybe just as good, but not better.

     

    With this trade, they'll start Monta Ellis, Carmelo Anthony , Carlos Boozer, Loul Deng, and Joakim Noah. As good as that is, ur sayin they're better than the three all-stars in Miami?

     

    Besides, IF this trade even happens, it might not work. Young, talented players tend to clash for the ball on the same team.

    Re: Mega Trade? Biggest Trade in Sports History?

    Wohhh. I don't think that's going to happen either. I am perfectly happy with the team the Bulls have now...by the way they won tonight and Luol Deng got 24 points...so i don't think the Bulls are looking to trade him or Rose right now. Anyways, if the guy who talked about this on the radio is the one my dad was telling me about today...then i don't think so. This guy supposedly thinks he knows everything about basketball and makes up (or makes a bigger deal) about trades...i disagreed with a lot of things he said.

    Oh and i love the Bulls bench. Kyle Korver didn't miss a shot tonight (3/3 three pointers, 5/5 shots total, and 2/2 free throws) and Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson, and EVERYONE ELSE are amazing. Maybe that's just my opinion thought:)

    Yep. You're right. NO WAY this trade happens. Melo either goes to New York or stays in Denver.
