POLL: So Where Is Carmelo Going?

New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony at Madison Square Garden in New York

We’ve been told that Carmelo Anthony will make his decision by the end of the weekend, which means there’s only one real question left to answer.

Where’s he going? I know what I think his ultimate destination will be, but it turns out that I have been wrong on a number of different occasions. I think three times to be exact. But what do you think? Vote below.

POLL: Would You Trade Joakim Noah For The #1 Pick?

This is the EXACT expression Jo would have when told he'd been traded to Cleveland

This is the EXACT expression Jo would have when told he’d been traded to Cleveland

Here’s a trade scenario that came out of no where on Wednesday. While conducting a chat at ESPN.com, Chad Ford was asked a question about which teams would be interested in trading up into the top three, and whether or not Cleveland, Milwaukee or Philadelphia would be interested in listening to offers.

I agree with Ford that the only one of those three teams I believe would do it is Cleveland, as both Milwaukee and Philly are in full-blown rebuilds, and you don’t pass up a chance at Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker while you’re rebuilding. But where things got interesting is what Ford said he thinks it might take to get the No. 1 pick in this summer’s draft.

You’re Jerry Reinsdorf and Gar Forman, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

The Bulls season ended last night, and while I’ll have a post up on the season later today, right now I was interested in getting your thoughts. We all know everything Bulls fans want the team to do this winter, but what if they can only do one thing?

What’s more important to you: getting Carmelo or amnestying Boozer? A healthy Derrick Rose, or Nikola Mirotic?

So if the Bulls were allowed to do only one thing this summer — hey, maybe Adam Silver will go mad with power after banning Donald Sterling — what would you do?

Who Will You Be Watching Tonight?

Tonight would be a good night to have multiple televisions in your house. Thanks to the NBA’s quirky playoff scheduling that gives teams consecutive days off between games at time, the Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs and White Sox will all be playing at the same time tonight. In fact, all four games are scheduled to begin within 10 minutes of one another.

So I want to know: which game will you be watching? If you have multiple televisions and will be watching multiple games, which game is going to command most of your attention?

POLL: How Do You Feel About Sammy Sosa?

The Cubs held the 100th anniversary ceremony for Wrigley Field today, and while plenty of former Cubs greats — and Ryan Dempster — as well as former Bears greats were on hand, there was one Cubs player noticeably absent.

Sammy Sosa.

A follower on Twitter suggested the Cubs stayed away from Sosa because they worried fans in attendance would have booed him. And that got me wondering. I know how I’d react were I a Cubs fan at Wrigley with Sammy Sosa there, but how would you?
