The Bulls will push Miami as the top team in the Eastern conference as Rose is happy to be playing but has a lot to prove to be known as the best in the league. With Noah, Deng, Boozer and even Jimmy Butler all playing at a high level, this team is dangerous and can challenge Miami in the conference finals as well. He may have sat out for 18 months, but make no mistake, in Rose’s eyes winning a championship is the only way he calls this season a success. If things go poorly...They are over the salary cap by quite a bit w...

Celebrate anyway, Bulls fans — Derrick Rose is back!

Praise the Lord, there he was! Oh, it was good to see Derrick Rose playing basketball for the Bulls again.
