The return of Derrick Rose is finally something people in Chicago can see. After missing the entire season while rehabbing from his ACL, Rose is now ready to return.  Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau thinks we’ll see a vastly improved Derrick Rose when he returns. As Thibodeau told ESPN Chicago, “Rose will be a much better shooter when he returns.” “He’s put a ton of time into his shooting because basically that’s all he could do along with his rehab stuff,” Thibodeau said. “Each year that Derrick’s been in the league he’s added to his game. So this is a continuation of all the things he’s done in the past. Every summer he’s concentrated on something and we may see more post-ups and things of that nature, more catch-and-shoot for him also. Rose has already hinted that he’s 100 percent, so it’s just about patiently waiting to see him play in a game again.
