Pass The Pill:
It wasn’t long ago that Knicks second-year man Iman Shumpert tore his ACL, much like Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose. However, as Rose is sitting on the sidelines watching his team battle the Miami Heat, Shumpert is contributing as the Knicks take on the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers.
Apparently, those defensive Pacers forgot one of the first rules in basketball: blocking out after a missed shot, which resulted in this vicious put-back dunk by Shumpert early in the second quarter that got the crowd at Madison Square Garden pumped up:

This is probably a good time to mention that Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose tore their ACLs on the same day last year.
Shumpert, whose knee injury has healed much faster than Rose’s, showed just how healthy he is on Tuesday. In the second quarter of the Knicks’ game against the Pacers, Shumpert rose up to rebound a miss by Chris Copeland and threw down the putback dunk in one...
New York Knicks’ Imam Shumpert had a ferocious putback dunk on Tuesday night during the second round match-up against the Pacers. Shumpert’s dunk was still not as good as his hair, unfortunately. The dunk came during the second quarter and is in the running for best dunk of the Playoffs so far.

Derrick Rose may play Game 3
The Derrick Rose injury saga has become a perpetual annoyance for most NBA fans. But for Chicago Bulls fans, this could be the best news they have had in a long time. The Bulls have been stricken with the injury bug and could definitely use the emotional boost alone it would receive from a Derrick Rose return, even if it meant limited minutes.
Derrick Rose and his young son, P.J., enjoyed the Miami sun on Wednesday afternoon before the Bulls lost Game 2 to the Miami Heat 115-78.
When you a superstar like Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose, you get to snack on the big bowl of candy on the Chicago Bulls bench during game two of the Miami Heat/Bulls series:
Clearly, Derrick is either a fan of “peach rings” or “life savers”.

There was a report from Hoops World that Derrick Rose “might” be in uniform by Game 3 of the Heat vs. Bulls series. Not his standard suit and tie uniform, but his real basketball uniform. The report didn’t say if Rose would actually play, but just that he might wear his uniform.
It was pretty vague, but Coach Thibodeau doesn’t want to get anyone hopes up.
The Miami Heat say they won’t be caught off guard if Derrick Rose makes an unexpected comeback for the Chicago Bulls in their second-round playoff series. Rose, who has not played all season since having ACL knee surgery a year ago, has traveled and practiced with the Bulls for at least two months. Neither Rose nor the Bulls have ruled the former league MVP out for the playoffs...

Throughout this over the top suffocating coverage of Derrick Rose and his repaired ACL, comparisons have been made from Adrian Peterson to Greg Oden, to Bernard King, to Rob Gronkowski (yes seriously, because he came back too soon they’re saying!). The immediate defenders of Rose are quick to recall how Chris Paul never was the same again ...

Knicks 105 Pacers 79
The Knicks looked like a powerhouse for the early stages of the Boston series and now tonight. A good first half, but a dominant second half, put distance between them and the Pacers, resulting in a victory.
The first half was solid, until the last few minutes of course. The Knicks had just pulled ahead by 13 points, but then the Knicks...

Unless you are a fan of the Miami Heat, or a Utah Jazz fan still bitter about the Jordan push-off on Byron Russell, you should be rooting for this years Chicago Bulls squad. Playing short-handed all season long, they have played with an immense amount of heart and pride, including their...
It's always fun to see the Miami bandwagon fans melt down after a loss. It's so funny to see them complain about the officiating when they get the benefit of the calls 99.9% of the time. In a game where the opponent took just 4 free throws more than them, they are certain that the game was fixed. They are used to getting all the calls and when a crew calls is...
