Derrick Rose Says He’ll Look For Teammates Early; Calls 4th Quarter “My Time”

Derrick Rose

Merely completing a full regular season game without incident is the necessary next step in the rehabilitation of Derrick Rose’s game. Though that seems a foregone conclusion given his play for Team USA this summer and with the Chicago Bulls during the exhibition slate, the same seemed inevitable last season. And while Rose played eight of the first nine games in 2013-2014, he succumbed to another knee injury before November was over. Baby steps are prudent. But the former MVP is feeling good enough to think far bigger. He’s not worried about playing a full game; he’s concerned and even confident with the way he’ll finish them. Read More »

Nobody has any idea which Derrick Rose shows up for the 2014-15 NBA season. Will it be the 2011 NBA MVP who whipped around the court like a pinball that always got the high score and never snuck past the flippers, or the man who suffered through surgeries on both legs that knocked him out of all but 10 regular season games the last two seasons; perhaps this year’s incarnation is some third D-Rose composed of something else entirely?

Watch Entire Bulls Team Rush To Help Derrick Rose

Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose

We all know Derrick Rose handily won his ostensible duel against Kyrie Irving last night during Chicago’s preseason game against Cleveland. Irving couldn’t handle Rose and we doubt anyone else could, either. Even with a game-high 30 points, everyone is holding their breath for the other shoe to drop with Rose and that was most clearly evident when he toppled to the court near the end of his electrifying first half.
