Jordan Bernfield, WGN Radio, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip in Chicago. He weighed in on the health of Derrick Rose and the Bulls in general. Bernfield says everyone is working off the belief that Rose will be fine to go and back to full strength. He thinks Carmelo Anthony is looking to win a championship which makes Chicago a strong contender if Rose is there healthy. He says the Bulls are really looking to bring a big star to the team to help them win.
Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show traveled to New York & Miami in an NBA edition of the Road Trip. First they went to New York to talk to Marc Malusis, WFAN, about the possibility of Carmelo Anthony leaving the Knicks. Next they flew over to Miami to talk to Brian Rowitz, 106.3, about LeBron James and other players’ futures with the Heat. He thinks that due to team loyalty, several of the players may stick around when many would move on to other teams. Rowitz discussed the importance of having a group of three big players on a team.

He doesn’t think LeBron will leave but he says it isn’t entirely impossible. Herbert thinks Carmelo Anthony will leave the Knicks and thinks the Rockets would be a possible fit.
Ari Tempkin joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show one more time on the Road Trip to discuss the Spur winning the NBA Finals against the Heat. He was very surprised by how easily the Spurs were able to win the series. Tempkin believes Tim Duncan is the most important player when it comes to how successful the Spurs have been able to be. He doesn’t think any of the Spurs are going to leave yet, but he thinks after Tim Duncan leaves all bets are off. In any case, he says the Spurs have had quite a dynasty so far.
Mario Elie joined the B-Straw & Pauly G Show at Man Fest. He talked about how the Spurs have stepped up against the Heat. Elie doesn’t think that Melo is the right fit for the Rockets and believes Kevin Love or Chris Bosh would fit much better with the team. He thinks Harden can improve if he really commits to getting better at defense. He thinks LeBron will stay with the Heat but hope that Bosh will decide to leave to join the Rockets. Elie hasn’t been asked to work with the Rockets but would definitely be open to the offer.
