Which Free Agent Can Help Rose?

(WSCR) It may appear as though Derrick Rose can do everything, but the reigning MVP of the league can’t bring a title to Chicago by himself.

Chicago finished the 2011 season with the best record in the NBA, the coach of the year in Tom Thibodeu and the MVP in Derrick Rose. Still, the Bulls’ season ended in disappointing fashion with a loss to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

One NBA expert said for the Bulls to make it to the finals this season, they need to bring in more help for Rose.

“You have to have a bigger scoring threat on the floor,” Mitch Lawrence of The New York Daily News told The Mully and Hanley Show. “You have to have defenses paying more attention to other players besides Derrick Rose. Derrick Rose is a handful. Last year, I voted him most improved player. The guy wasn’t even all-NBA and won the MVP. He had this tremendous season and we all expect him to play at that level. He’s got more pressure on him this year being an MVP. But he needs more help. There’s no question about that.”

If the Bulls can bring in a scorer to complement Rose, Lawrence likes the Bulls’ chances at making a run at the franchise’s seventh title.

“I love the Bulls,” Lawrence said. “They have a system in place. They have a great player in Derrick Rose. They have the coach of the year in Tom Thibodeau, who will love here in New York still. They’re not going to change a lot to the system.”
