Every free agency, NBA fans make wish lists of dream free agent acquisitions. This year most hopes and dreams are being directed at one player, LeBron James. James is such a versatile player he fits in any team’s offensive and defensive schemes. Of the thirty dreams (the number of NBA teams) a few stand out.
LeBron's final destination
LeBron James to the Dallas Mavericks is a recipe for epic western conference competition. The Mavericks showed a few months ago they are the closest team to defeating the San Antonio Spurs, they took the eventual champion Spurs to seven games. Dallas can offer LeBron the maximum contract he wants while playing with super star power forward Dirk Nowitzki. Dallas’ supporting cast has been consistently overachieving, but would only continue to do so when James is dribbling the ball up the court.
Another intriguing free agent, team pairing is Chris Bosh to the Houston Rockets. Houston has a perfect niche for Bosh. Dwight Howard and James Harden are premiere rim attackers in the NBA, many times drawing double and triple teams. Of course that would leave the silky shooting big man Bosh open for midrange jumpers. As if Houston needed any help rebounding, Bosh is a great rebounder when he plays the power forward position.
Carmelo is free to attack
The final dream free agent, team connection has already been pooh poohed, Carmelo Anthony to the Chicago Bulls. Carmelo has shown over his eleven year career he is absolutely indifferent about playing defense. For that reason, the Bulls are the perfect team for him to play for. Anthony won’t be pressured to play lock down defense; the roster is already full of defensive minded players. Instead, Anthony will be the entirety of the Bulls offense. From Melo’s days in Denver with the Nuggets we know he doesn’t mind chucking the ball up. The Bulls were a fantastic defensive team last season, allowing the least points allowed a game of any team. On the other hand, the Bulls couldn’t find any offense anywhere, often times scoring eighty or fewer points and owners of the league’s worst points scored per game in 2013-2014 season.
