It seems every media outlet or source out there believes the Chicago Bulls are going to acquire both Lebron James and Chris Bosh, especially with the great trade that they were able to pull off on draft night.

Second, it is known that Derrick Rose and Lebron James both need the ball to be effective and neither is a great shooter or great player off the ball in terms of offense (a la Ray Allen).
