Bulls not being subtle in their desire for Carmelo Anthony

The Bulls are not keeping their innermost desires a secret.

Blasting their intense interest in acquiring Carmelo Anthony from the side of the United Center, Chicago is pulling no punches as they attempt to make the Knicks star swoon.

The Knicks were said to still be the chief contenders for Anthony, and with Phil Jackson now calling the shots, they are a far more appealing option than the Knicks were this past season. Anthony would prefer to stay in New York and get a max deal, but that hasn't stopped Chicago from going all in.

We'll see if Anthony is susceptible to such epic flattery.
