Carlos Boozer Wants LeBron James To Join Him In Chicago

The Chicago Bulls aren't officially out of the LeBron James sweepstakes until tonight, but it doesn't look like James is really considering them. As a last-ditch attempt to get back into the race, the Bulls signed Carlos Boozer yesterday. Now, Boozer is lobbying LeBron to join him.

Boozer was on "The Waddle & Silvy  Show" on WMVP-AM 1000 in Chicago earlier Thursday and said he's trying to reach out to LeBron. Via Chicago Breaking Sports:

"I'm going to text him again this morning," Boozer said. "If we get him, we could rival one of the best teams of all time and be able to put together championship after championship. If we don't get him, we'll compete against him and we'll bring it to him."      

I too am surprised Chicago is totally out of it. Derrick Rose and Boozer are not Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, but the Bulls actually have supporting players in place like Joakim Noah, Luol Deng and Taj Gibson, whereas the Heat can only afford minimum contracts. Maybe this last-ditch pitch works. Who knows?
