When Rose is at home watching the NBA Finals on TV he may rethink his words.
the difference is that Chicago actually had good players to begin with.
Rose, Noah, Deng, acquiring Boozer...
you put a Wade or Lebron on that team and the whole nucleus of the team (including Rose's value especially) goes out the window.
In Miami, you put Wade and Lebron on a team filled with scrubs and its easy for those two to go off, because theres no one else on that team required to do anything but run up and down the court and watch.
Chicago's team is perfect, everyone knows their role and everyone contributes. Rose was bang on about his desire to get JJ on that team because he would have fit in gloriously.
