Chicago Bulls fans miss Derrick Rose. The team has handled itself well during his absence, but you have to wonder how long they are capable of holding it together with a former NBA MVP watching from the sidelines. On Sunday before the Bulls were blown out by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Rose was shown doing something that should put a smile on the face of Bulls fans. He dunked. Of course, Rose wasn’t exactly exploding to the basket and landed on his “good” knee. But a couple of weeks ago the point guard was talking about how he still lacks burst and is unable to dunk. Unless we were seeing things, he has made some progress. It’s still not out of the question that Rose could miss the entire season, but it’s certainly encouraging to see that his rehab now includes warming up with basketball activity and not being afraid to go up for a dunk. Is he close to returning? That’s doubtful, but any dunk is a a sign of confidence at the very least. Video via Game On!
