Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to New York to talk to WFAN’s Marc Malusis about free agency and potential trades in the NBA.

He thinks whether LeBron stays or leaves Miami depends on if Chris Bosh opts in or not.

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.
