All-Star Weekend is a time for the NBA's best to socialize and schmooze, and Joakim Noah took advantage of that opportunity in a somewhat Machiavellian way. Noah told Carmelo Anthony during the break that he wanted Anthony on the Bulls, a sentiment evidently also shared by Derrick Rose, who reportedly offered to personally recruit Anthony. Playing with Noah and Rose might be a tempting opportunity for Anthony. Though he has been putting up great numbers this season and he'd stand to make much more money in New York, he's stuck on a 22-40 team that would need some kind of miracle to make the playoffs even in a weak Eastern Conference.
