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.

Jonathan Papelbon still wants out of Philly

I feel like I’ve written a version of this headline about five times over the past year, but it’s really only been four. My apologies. Anyway, as we roll along towards the All-Star Break and the trade deadline, lone Philadelphia Phillies All-Star Jonathan Papelbon is reiterating his desire to be traded to a contender before the end of the month.

Kyrie Irving: Cavaliers would have won an NBA title if healthy

There’s no arguing that losing Kyrie Irving hurt the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. But would Irving have been the difference between losing a series in six games and winning a title? He seems to think so. During a recent appearance on The Big Podcast with Shaquille O’Neal, Irving...Read More

Are LeBron, Cavs just playing teenage games?

Follow us on Twitter @CrossoverNBA We all knew a few of them growing up. Odds are, you know a few of them now too. They’re the folks that crave some sort of drama, controversy, and say things like, “I try to avoid it, but it finds me.” It’s a mildly rough way to live, it’d seem like. Which brings us very quickly to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lebron James. Whatever...
