In an interview with Bulls Talk Podcast, journalist KC Johnson, one of the most reliable sources, assured that the Bulls were close to signing three players who led his team to four finals and two titles in the summer of 2011.
In the footsteps of Michael Jordan
“If the Bulls were able to bring Luol Deng to the Clippers, something they were negotiating, the Big Three would be in Chicago,” a phrase the journalist wished these iconic players had had a presence in the city of winds and thus live out the glory days of the franchise, when Michael Jordan gave them six championship rings.
Finally, when Luol Deng’s transfer failed, they opted for the transfer of young Derrick Rose, who finally made his mark on the team by signing a campaign where he was voted Most Valuable Player, however this was not enough to bring City titles so the dream of bringing back the “Big Three” adds some salt to the wound.
