Earlier this month, USA Today reported that Derrick Rose would not comeback until he felt he was 110 percent ready. Which meant he would be completely fine with missing the rest of the season to recover from the torn ACL he suffered last season, in the first round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, if it is necessary. It has been 9 months since the injury and there haven’t been any major hiccups on his road to recovery. He is already participating in full contact practices and apparently dunking for weeks now. This is the first footage of him actually doing so, of course he is still favoring his good leg, but it’s a step forward. Let’s all hope Derrick Rose a perfect recovery, and that he returns to this form soon. This version of D.Rose is the best. Getting a little bit giddy over here, especially at the thought of the end of those awful Adidas commercials. Take them off the air, please. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

  • Listening to some of Rose's comments, I just don't think he trusts his knee yet and if he doesn't, I hope he doesn't try and come back until he does.

Matt Duffy is baseball’s biggest surprise

Guys drafted in the 18th round aren’t supposed to amount to much. Every once in a while you get lucky, but for the most part teams are drafting for organizational depth by then: players who might move up a level or two in the minors, but nothing more. It’s where teams draft a light-hitting infielder with a .253/.305/.289 overall college slash line with no career home runs....

Report: Butler leaning toward long-term deal with Bulls

There’s no denying Jimmy Butler’s NBA future is bright. The biggest question, however, is where his star will be shining. Although the Chicago Bulls have the rights to the restricted free agent, Butler was reportedly seeking short-term offer sheets to maximize his earning potential when the salary cap begins to spike after the 2015-16 campaign. However, according to ESPN...

Nick Foles ready to lead dynamic Rams offense

The St. Louis Rams have been slowly rebuilding their team over the last couple of seasons, and they are very happy with where they are at heading into the 2015 season. They were able to add two very important pieces to their offense this offseason, and to say that the Rams have a chance to be dynamic would be an understatement. Nick Foles was acquired by the Rams this past offseason...
