Should Derrick Rose be the NBA's MVP this year? Not surprisingly, the local media in Chicago thinks so. At the risk of making his fans angry, though, I am going to suggest otherwise.
Social media is all the buzz in small business. Everyone has seen their local mom and pop store using social tools to keep in touch with their clientele. Where does Wall Street meet Main Street? Franchising.
All the summer glitter is gone. Everything that happens will now be decided not on fan sites, but on the court. Lets just say the Miami Heat won't start the season winning 41 of their first 44 games.
Bringing Melo to Chicago would signify that building Super Teams in the in the Eastern Conference is now the norm if you're trying to show fans you're in it to win it.
With the increased commercial visibility, Rose is opening himself up to judgment like never before. If he fails to deliver on the court, Rose could find a proverbial slushee chucked in his direction.
It doesn't take a genius to proclaim the Miami Heat winners of the off-season. From a pure talent standpoint, their haul is not just unprecedented, it may never happen again. This leaves our other off-season winner.
Maybe LeBron James doesn't want to be the next Michael Jordan. Maybe he's content with winning a few championships with his friends in one of the coolest places in the country.

On Tuesday night ESPN reported that LeBron James had decided to announce his NBA team choice on their network, Thursday night at 9:00 EST. So afte...
Leaving Cleveland and playing with the likes of Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh would actually hurt James more than help him shape his legend.
Before the usual Lakers drama heats up, LA fans should kick back, relax and enjoy the latest NBA crown over the coming months--or until our beloved purple and gold champs are dethroned.
There's something to be said for the leader of the free world having loyalty to a sports team. The American people expect their president to be authentic.
President Obama took a break from being slammed by Rand Paul, the oil spill, and speaking at West Point to give his thoughts on the most coveted free agent in recent history, Lebron James.
If Stern is to remain empowered to levy fines for comments about players under contract, he must immediately announce a fine for President Obama just as he did for Mark Cuban.
So for Chicago, the future is hopeful for now. They have the opportunity to try to land a respected name from the coaching community and a NBA All Star in the same off-season.
With a free agent class that includes LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, it's not a stretch to say this summer could define the NBA hierarchy for the next ten years.
