Wade on Rose and possibly playing in Chicago

Dwayne Wade appeared Tuesday on ESPN 1000's "Waddle and Silvy" show and the Miami Heat star had some interesting things to say about his future and Bulls guard Derrick Rose:

Tom Waddle: "What are the chances of you coming back to Chicago?

Wade: "If I could say one thing I would say that I'm blessed to be in a position where I have options. I thank god for those options. 2010, free agency only comes up once so I'm going to make sure that I think about this and do it right. Of course I love Miami, this is where I built my career at. Chicago is always the place I'm from, there's going to be talk about that, of course, but right now I'm trying to do what I can to make sure that the team that I'm on be as good as we can be. When it's time for me to think about it, then I will do just that."

Marc Silverman: "Any chance at all about coming back with Derrick Rose?"

Wade: "Derrick Rose is a great, great player. He's a point guard of the future. I can't say there's a chance, I'm still in a Miami Heat uniform. I'm not ruling anything out as well. I'm making sure I'm keeping my options open."

Silvy: "You're not ruling out Chicago?"

Wade: "I'm not ruling out a lot of places, but I'm not really thinking about those places either. Like I said, 2010 is the year when I will sit down and open up my options and, hopefully, I'm still blessed and healthy to have those options and then go from there. But Miami is my number one option and I've made that clear. That's where I want to be and, hopefully, we can get everything right here in Miami."

Silvy: "What advice would you give Derrick Rose?"

Wade: "It's just been proven, every good player, every player that has been put up, someone is going to do something to find something on them to bring them down. Think the best thing about Derrick is he's getting it out of the way early, so he's not going to have to worry about it later. Continue to be the person he is, everyone makes mistakes in life. We're not perfect human beings. Just continue to be the person he is and the player he is and he'll be fine."

Silvy: "What'd you think of the picture?"

Wade: "I thought he was a young kid in college. He did something he probably didn't always do. He was young and in college. I'm sure we've all done something in college we wouldn't like let out."

wade and rose...thats another championship for my home town....and in a couple of years when i get drafted to the bulls we will be unstopable. D Wade needs to be in chicago

If the Bulls do pick up Wade this year in the free agency they should forget LeBron cause hes got to much hype already and everyone is going for him, they should wait till next year and then pick up Carmelo.

PG-Derrick Rose
SG-Dwyane Wade
SF-Carmelo Anthony
PF-Taj Gibson
C-Joakim Noah (not quite sure how to spell Noah's first name)

There is a legendary team. They would be in and should win every championship game for about the next 10 years. DYNASTY!!!

pg-derrick rose
sg-dwayne wade
pf-lebron james-
pf-amarie stoudmire
c-joakim noah

now thats unstoppable

is it just me or does it seem like dwade doesn't want to leave miami at all ?? Because he's not completely answering the questions and he just basically said i dont want to be on a team with rose because of his past, plus his team is not yet 'championship caliber'

i think that they should get Lebron James because he and Derrick Rose will make a good team i they will win next your

This The Lineup For Chicago Next Year !:

PG - Derrick Rose
SG - Dwayne Wade
SF - LeBron James
PF - Taj Gibson (Maybe)
C - Joakim Noah

What the hell you guys are saying. Having Rose, Wade, Lebron and Carmelo means you are making the bulls a stupid and circus team. You will only making them a paper champion. These guys are all scorers nobody will do the dirty job here. Bulls need a strong supporting cast that can do dirty works, like Defense. Having Wave in bulls is more than enough.

Don't dream too much or else you will end with nothing.

STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LIVE IN MIAMI AND UWANT TO GET ALL THE GOOD TEAMATES CHIGAGO IS ALL FULL OF NO-AT-ALLS DAA NO ONE NOTEST HE WILL STAY WITH MIAMI FOREEVER HE MADE IT CLEAR YA :)

all i can say is i bet Rose get a ring before Lebron!! even if we got "not-at-alls"
