I haven’t followed this idea. Any chance at all he opts out to come home?

I saw a quote where he said he plans on winning 10 titles with LeBron, so no I don't think this happens, unless we happen to sign LeBron as well. OK, joke aside, he's going to re-sign in L.A. in the hopes of collecting a fistful of rings.

No.
Oh, and neither is Giannis, BTW.
I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of October 26th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Haliburton; 5-Nesmith; 6-Williams; 7-Vassel; 8-Maxey; 9-Avdija; 10-Okongwu.

I think AD is possible but it'd have to be next offseason.

And we'd have to position ourselves to acquire a second star to join him.

Lol well whaddya know, no ones even watching these finals. Ratings are in the crapper. Everyone sees right through this bizarre charade, and no one cares. He’ll slaughter his career by staying where he’s at. He’s an afterthought

And tbh, I don’t really want him on the Bulls unless they draft Cade next year or Zach/Coby turn into Steph/Klay next season. Davis seems like a complete putz, and the Bulls don’t have a James. I’m sure they’ll wind up signing him or trading for him anyways if he decides he wants to come home, but we’ve seen what a team looks like when he’s the #1 guy, and it’s nothing special

He has learnt to win but he needs a superstar wing next to him.

Had they lost and we looked more promising during the season, it may have been. But alas, neither of those things happened. He'll stay in LA, and that's honestly the smart move to make for him too.

There is speculation that Giannis might want to go to the Heat.

So, don't be surprised if it happens.

I don't see him leaving LA after winning a title. Maybe when he's old a la Wade.

Lakers got a MAX spot next off-season if I remember correctly. Why would AD want to leave?

It was never in the cards for us to get AD. Unless maybe if the Lakers under-performed and the Bulls had a Heat type of over-achieving season. But that hypothetical ship has sailed.

Bulls are better off building organically instead of chasing stars that have no interest. We don't want to end up like the Knicks.

No.

I know he gave a goofy answer about his upcoming free agency, but that's how Klutch sports does things. He's going to either take a long term contract with the Lakers this off-season or a 1+1 to see how the cap works out going forward.

This seems like a bizarre question after he just won a ring in a state with better weather, better management and a better roster.

I now thing that the Bulls scouting department doesn't have access to electricity or any devices that actually use it.

Oh god, it never dawn on me the possibility of LBJ possibly playing till his mid 40s. Basketball is already on my periphery of sports viewership but if LBJ is even considered playing till his mid 40s, NBA will drop below soccer, WNBA, Rugby, and Australian Rules Football in terms of my interests.

There mere idea of LBJ playing another 10 years is annoying, so I hope that does not become a reality. But man AD is delusional if he thinks he is going to win 10 titles with LBJ.
Goodbye....Someday.
