“They met us in the Eastern Conference finals, and they were one player away from making it a very, very, very tough series,” Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade told ESPNChicago.com during an event for his “Wade’s World” charities in August. “Derrick Rose is evolving into a phenomenal player. You could look and see they’re one player away from being there every year.”
So what kind of player do they need?
“It would have to be a player that can take the pressure off him from making every play,” Wade said. “As a point guard, when you have to score so much and have to make every big shot and have to make all the passes, eventually it takes a toll on you throughout the season, no matter how phenomenal you are.”
So who is the missing piece the Bulls need to find before opening night? Is the difference maker even available right now? General manager Gar Forman’s fear has to be that he won’t be able to find an upgrade for Keith Bogans as the starting two-guard (heck, giving Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver more of Bogans’ minutes would be an upgrade), and that no matter who he brings in that player still may not push the Bulls past Miami in a seven-game series.
