In what he considers the best highlight of his career, watch the Chicago Bulls superstar split a trap and glide around Joel Anthony for a mind-bending poster dunk during a 2011 game against the Miami Heat.

Derrick Rose Says “My Game Is Coming Back Slowly” After OT Game-Winner

Klay Thompson, Derrick Rose

The Warriors-Bulls game last night started at a frenetic pace. Derrick Rose connected on a pair of three-pointers early. Then there was a brief return to his historic levels on Friday for Klay Thompson, who started 6-of-6 and had 15 before the six minute mark. Things settled down after that, but amped up for an overtime session that culminated with Rose hitting the game winner with seven seconds left. Read More »

The wildly improved outside shooting is great. But what really has us excited about Derrick Rose’s recent play is the frequency with which he’s attacking the rim, and how he’s doing it once he gets there. Watch the Chicago Bulls superstar tap into MVP-winning self on this swooping, up-and-under reverse layup early in his team’s game against the Miami Heat. Read More »

D-Rose & Popovich Dismiss Rumors Tom Thibodeau Has Lost The Locker Room

Tom Thibodeau, Derrick Rose

This seemed ridiculous, which is why we didn’t report it earlier this week. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Bulls point guard Derrick Rose think so, too. Earlier this week reports flitted to the surface that Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau had lost his locker room and his overbearing, almost militaristic zeal for working his players had disenchanted some members of the Bulls, who had started to tune him out. That was the explanation for Chicago dropping six of their last eight games. Last night, after Rose and the Bulls beat up the Spurs, Rose came to his coach’s defense and so did Popovich. Read More »

Video: Derrick Rose Shimmies & Shakes On Reverse Layup

Tim Duncan, Derrick Rose

The same night it became apparent Derrick Rose isn’t back to the All-Star level according to the fans, he went off momentarily when the Bulls beat down the Spurs on TNT. We see too little of the Tasmanian Devil in his post-surgery game (to be expected), but the bouncy changes of motion and driving angles that shouldn’t exist, but bend space for him anyway, sometimes coalesce still. A reverse layup five minutes into the third quarter shows this more than prose can. Read More »

Derrick Rose After Another Bulls Loss: “It’s (Bleeping) Irritating”

Derrick Rose, Timofey Mozgov

The Chicago Bulls were beaten by 14 in Cleveland last night, despite LeBron’s lackluster effort on this play. It’s their sixth loss in their last eight, and it dropped them a game back of the Raptors — who are also having a tough 2015 so far. Derrick Rose vented his frustration after the game, when he mentioned the Bulls getting on the “same page” or they were going to continue to get their “a** kicked.” Read More »

On the heels of Derrick Rose giving the Warriors’ Stephen Curry very high praise – putting him at the top of the list of the best point guards in the NBA – the 2011 MVP put on a show at the TD Garden against the Boston Celtics. After posting an impressive 32 points in a losing effort against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, Rose did not let his foot of the gas pedal whatsoever on Friday night, finishing with 29 points and 10 assists on 12-20 shooting.

Derrick Rose Says Stephen Curry Is Basketball’s Best Point Guard

Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry

Steph Curry is the best player on the league’s best team. He’s made major strides as a defender this season while continuing to improve as a finisher in the paint. He boasts basketball’s fourth-best PER and is the only player in the league averaging at least 23 points and eight assists per game. MVP? Curry certainly has the resumé of past award winners, including 2011 honoree Derrick Rose. And while the Chicago Bulls’ floor general hasn’t anointed Curry MVP, Rose says the Golden State Warriors superstar is at least the best point guard in the NBA. Read More »

Struggling Bulls Admit Defense, Energy Is Plaguing Them After Loss To Wizards

John Wall, Derrick Rose

Tom Thibodeau’s Chicago Bulls have always been known for their habitual effort and dominant defense. And on the national scale they still are, despite mounting evidence that the 2014-2015 Bulls have fallen victim to symptoms of past established contenders: a decided lack of overall energy that’s most manifesting itself on the defensive side of the ball. At least Chicago isn’t sugarcoating it anymore. After a dispiriting 105-99 home loss to the rival Washington Wizards last night, Derrick Rose and company admitted the issues plaguing them. Read More »
