Low-post star like Bosh high on wish list

Low-post star like Bosh high on wish list If the Bulls can't convince LeBron James or Dwyane Wade to come to Chicago next summer, the third player on their wish list of potential free agents likely would be center/power forward Chris Bosh of the Toronto Raptors.

The Bulls' top priority still is a low-post player, and the 6-10 Bosh is a double-double machine who

entered Saturday averaging 24.4 points and 12.1 rebounds. He almost hit those averages exactly against the Bulls with 25 points and 12 rebounds in the Raptors' easy win.

''He's still young [25], he can score the ball inside or outside, he's long,'' Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said of Bosh. ''There are a lot of positives. Chris puts a lot of pressure on you, no question. You know they're gonna post him up and pop him. He protects the rim pretty good.''

Of course, the Bulls will have to play better than they did in the second half Friday night and the entire game against the Raptors to attract any decent star to town.


A day later, Joakim Noah calling out James for excessive celebrating during the Cleveland Cavaliers' blowout victory still was drawing a reaction.

''I thought it was good,'' Del Negro said. ''I thought it was the right thing. Everybody was feeling the same way, I think.

''But we have to play better and not put ourselves in that situation.''


Before getting ejected in the third quarter Saturday night after drawing his second technical foul, Noah had to suffer through Florida's 32-13 loss to Alabama in the SEC title game.

When Noah was getting dressed at his locker a little more than an hour before tipoff, assistant coach Pete Myers walked into the room and yelled, ''Roll Tide!''

The game still was early in the fourth quarter, but Alabama was coasting to victory, and Noah already had stopped watching.

Noah: ''You didn't even go to Alabama.''

Myers: ''I was born in Alabama.''

Noah: ''How come I didn't hear this last year?''

Maybe because Florida defeated Alabama last year in the title game.
