There aren't many targets left available for the Bulls to chase as a secondary star. One of them who seems to share a similar attitude to Derrick Rose about winning, dancing, recently complained about the lack of progress with his franchise, and is a legit all-star is Kevin Love.
Here's the old image of Kevin Love not dancing like a goof ball at the Olympics
Which of course reminds you of this
Anyway, lack of dance moves aside, Kevin Love is really good, potentially demanding a trade within the next two years and fills lots of needs for Chicago. Presently, unless the Bulls draft a superstar somehow, he represents the next best plan I've got to add a significant amount of talent to the team.
I'm not going to discuss how the Bulls could pull off such a trade, because quite frankly, they probably can't. However, let's take a wild leap of faith and say they somehow managed to do so by giving up future considerations, so they're largely able to keep the team in tact. Just for the hell of it, let's also say they can do it this summer giving us a core of Rose, Hinrich, Deng, Love, Noah with Taj, Butler, Teague, and a new cast of role players coming off the bench.
If everyone is healthy, I'd presently put the Bulls fourth in the NBA, and even swapping out Boozer to bring in Love, I'm not sure the Bulls move up even one spot. I think the Thunder likely come back significantly improved internally, the Lakers maybe fall off next season with Nash/Kobe/Gasol all on the decline and all aging another year, but the Bulls are still clearly behind the Heat in this scenario unless Miami has some significant injury.
That's the trouble with beating superteams. There's no tangible way to ever become a favorite over them without creating your own superteam, and there's no reasonable way to bring in three superstars unless you have highly favorable circumstances and the players force their way to you.
Chicago has done plenty to create highly favorable circumstances over the years, but it's never quite worked out. They've always seemed like the second choice for most teams and didn't make it on to Howard's list at all. The good news is that if Kevin Love does force his way out of Minnesota, the Bulls are probably one of the team's he'll be most interested in.
That said, even Kevin Love may not be enough.
