Pax should pull the trigger

Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets
Stop me if you've heard this one before.

Chicago has the necessary pieces to acquire this franchise-changing star athlete.

Jim Hendry tantalized and teased Cubs fans with the idea of Jake Peavy manning the front line of the North Siders' rotation and Peavy is still in San Diego.

Someone needs to tell Bulls GM John Paxson he cannot afford to make the same mistake.

The Suns' championship window is rapidly closing and that could mean star forward Amare Stoudemire could be on the trading block. And since 6-foot-10-inch forwards that are entering their prime and can average 20 points and 10 rebounds don't grow on trees, Mad Pax needs to throw the kitchen sink at counterpart Steve Kerr and see what sticks.

Need to deplete the frontline of Drew Gooden, Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas? Fine by me. Phoenix likes Ben Gordon and Luol Deng? Bye-bye Benny. Deng-nabbit why couldn't you be gone sone?

Teaming Stoudemire with Derrick Rose has been running around the minds of Bulls fans who have seen tandems such as CP3 and Tyson Chandler or Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer become wildly successful. So why not reward them?

Not only reward the fans, but reward your franchise as a whole.

Right now, the Bulls are on the outside looking in. If they add Stoudemire, they become a playoff-worthy team with the ability to pull off a first-round upset. Then, when his time comes when he wants to become a free agent, you hand over a check with a max contract on it and you don't leave the room 'til he signs it.

A Rose-Deng-Stoudemire triangle of basketball goodness is playoff worthy with the right supporting cast (such as a three-point sniping shooting guard and a rockin' rebounder in the post) would turn the Bulls from good to great.

And if my name was John Paxson, I'd be looking for that date to be great moment. The acquisition of Amare Stoudemire could be it.
