If you take the three things Carmelo wants, this makes sense (a big market, max contract & young superstar player to team with). Also, Melo might have just been reading my tweets telling him to go to Chicago, either way it seems more likely if he is going to leave the Windy City will be a major player in that decision. Only now, the gloom of the Knicks’ season – the uncertainty of the franchise’s future – left that man to believe it’s possible Anthony could leave New York in free agency. “Chicago is much more in play for him than L.A.,” the source said. The Bulls traded Luol Deng for draft picks and are leaning strongly toward using the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer. They could create a maximum contract slot for Anthony, pairing him with Derrick Rose. For Anthony, it is leaving a cap-strapped team through 2015 for a Chicago proposition with significant risks of its own. No one can be sure of Rose’s return to his MVP greatness, but everyone can be sure of one thing: The franchise’s mandate isn’t winning championships, but sidestepping luxury and repeater taxes to turn the fattest possible profits for the owner. Sometimes you have to take risks in life.  I think Melo if he truly wants an opportunity to win a title, needs to leave New York and pray that Derrick Rose gets over the injury bug.
