Joakim Noah persuading Carmelo Anthony to join Chicago Bulls

Carmelo Anthony has been carrying the New York Knicks all season, and has even publicly criticised his failing teammates calling them "embarrassing."

With his upcoming free agency, it seems like Joakim Noah is looking to cash in and turn Melo's head towards Chicago and the Bulls.

The rumours about the Bulls courting Anthony and being in the race for his signature have abounded for weeks, but now Chris Broussard is saying that the Bulls star center has approached Melo himself.

"Over All-Star weekend, I’m told by a person with knowledge of the conversation, that Joakim Noah recruited Carmelo," Broussard said on ESPN. Now, you’ll probably hear denials out of Chicago if they talk about it, because it would be tampering, officially."

But I’m told that Joakim said to Melo, 'Look, you can go to Los Angeles. But if you want to win a ring, if you want your legacy to be about winning, come to Chicago.'

Melo, I’m told, said, 'Look, I’ve been watching you guys. I admire how hard you play. I admire how hungry you are. Oh, and by the way, my son’s favorite player: Derrick Rose.”

Broussard later went on to tweet that if the Bulls wanted then Rose could also definitely be involved in Chicago's attempts to lure seven time All-Star to The Windy City. 

It's an interesting story and one that certainly is possible. Both players were teammates in the Eastern Conference and Noah and Chicago want to get back to their Michael Jordan era best of winning championships, while Anthony looks to have finally run out of patience with the Knicks franchise.
