Welcome to Chicago Melo'?

As many of you know, just a few short weeks ago trade talks were flying around involving the possibility of Carmelo Anthony coming to Chicago. The only way this appeared to be possible was with Joakim Noah being involved in any type of trade. Joakim is now locked up in a 5 year $60 million deal. So all possibility of Carmelo playing in the house of Jordan is gone by the wayside, right? Not exactly. According to ESPN...

"The source also cautioned that the Chicago Bulls remained in the Melo mix, although the contract extension Chicago reached earlier this month with Joakim Noah would preclude him from being included in any deal the Bulls would put together for Anthony."

This makes me smile. If Denver sends us Carmelo, they will also be sending us a guarenteed shot at the 2010-2011 championship. I was all against this trade when it involved Noah going away, but with Jo locked up, Gar Forman better find a way to pull the trigger on this one. I'd imagine it would involve a combination of Taj Gibson, (Luol Deng?), and a number of future draft picks. Imagine this potential starting lineup...Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, and Luol Deng. Holy Hell. I need to stop typing. I keep drooling onto my keyboard, and getting goosebumps in front of my coworkers is a bit awkward.
