In 2010, Joakim Noah reportedly tried to win LeBron James for the bulls
New details have been released regarding the establishment of the Miami Heat “Big Three” super team in 2010 and the recruitment of LeBron James.
The Chicago Bulls gave a full pitch and felt like they could land both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
The question was whether they could make enough room to land a third star.
It was clear that Bosh, Wade and James all wanted to play together.
The question was which team would approach the superstar package.
After two days of meetings, the cops were reportedly split because they thought they could land Wade and Bosh, but they weren’t so sure about James.
There was another problem for the cops; Young aspiring star Derrick Rose was not involved in the recruitment process as he refused to be part of the field to land James.
Another of her young stars, Joakim Noah, was loud Brian Windhorst from ESPN.
Although Noah was a star recruiter in his Florida college years, he wasn’t the Bulls’ franchise player.
Noah and James didn’t have the best relationship, but Noah tried unsuccessfully to call James because James never called him back.
Whether things would have been different if Rose had done what Stephen Curry did to recruit Kevin Durant for the Golden State Warriors will be unknown forever.
The bulls could have had this grid:
- PG: Derrick Rose
- SG: Dwyane Wade
- SF: LeBron James
- PF: Chris Bosh
- C: Joakim Noah
