Boozer is a good defensive forward? And Melo torched Deng last season. We have Chandler to eliminate any problems that Noah may cause. They have no bench and there's no way they can keep up with our size and depth at all positions. We match up great with the Bulls. We'll eat them for lunch and spit them out.
Really, the only teams we have trouble matching up with are those with massive guys at the 4, like Memphis with Randolph, and maybe the Lakers with Gasol.
I was referring to Deng, Gibson, and Noah. Noah can do a good job matching up with Stat. Gibson did a great job against Melo last year, and to a lesser extent, so did Deng. Yeah, Melo torched them, but mostly on contested j's and layups in transition. Yes Melo will get his points, but other than Lebron, those are two of the best guys in the league at guarding Melo.
As I said, the Bulls can rebuild their bench during the season.
Boozer is somewhat similar to Randolph... you don't want Melo guarding him. We'd have to go big against Chicago and it remains to be seen how that will affect us given that we've been going small so far this season.
Last year Chicago definitely gave us trouble. We had two must-win games against them down the stretch. We won one of them due to a HOF performance by Melo. In the other one they just pummeled us on the boards and Gibson was able to contain Melo.
