This is why fat guys are suing Derrick Rose for depression. I don’t think the majority of people have a real problem with Rose sitting out for the entire year. A lot of people think it is the smart way to go. I believe fans get annoyed though, when the Bulls release comments like this. “He’s most likely out but you never know,” Thibodeau said. “The playoffs are stretched out, too, so you have to factor that in. So who knows another week from now where he is? You always want to leave that possibility open.” “Whenever he can come back, he comes back.” Either give a no comment or say he isn’t coming back. It is the wishy-washy comments, that have people feel like Rose and the Bulls organization are jerking them around.

Derrick Rose could learn a thing or two about toughness from Joakim Noah

Well the Chicago Bulls just got their asses handed to them by Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets.  It was ugly…really, ugly.  The final score of 106-89 really doesn’t do the blowout justice.  At the end of the 1st half, the Bulls trailed 60-35.  For the most part, the Bulls were lifeless all game. One [...]

Derrick Rose being sued for missing NBA Season

Derrick Rose news? I  “DONNNNNNNNN’TTTTTT CARRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE” (credit Jay Cutler) when it comes to Derrick Rose return/rehabilitation coverage. I’ve been nauseated by the story for over a month already. Seriously, right now, I don’t want to even hear the name Derrick Rose until Bulls Media Day in October. But then I stumbled across this not quite amusing but possibly...

Nets Not Game Planning For Derrick Rose

Though Tom Thibodeau says “there’s always a possibility” that Derrick Rose, who missed all 82 regular season games, could appear in the playoffs, the Brooklyn Nets are not game planning for the chance that the Bulls guard could play. According to Newsday: The Nets are going about their business as if things aren’t going to change and Rose still will be out. “We are just...

Rose's absence requires answers

No more excuses. The time for Derrick Rose to stand up and come forward is right now. That became self-evident Saturday night, when a Chicago Bulls team lacking its star player and worn weary by a season without him was utterly overwhelmed by the Brooklyn Nets, 106-89, in the opener of their seven-game series. So much wrong with this Bulls team was on display. Head coach Tom Thibodeau...

Bulls' Rose out, Noah questionable

Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau ruled out point guard Derrick Rose for the opener of the Bulls' first-round series against Brooklyn on Saturday but left open the possibility Rose could play later in the postseason.

2013 Playoff Preview: Chicago Bulls v. Brooklyn Nets

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler-NBAE via Getty Images Looming. It's a great word for this series considering that the shadow of Derrick Rose will be looming over this series at least until he decides to declare himself fit to play. It's like there  is a collective holding of breathe in the NBA waiting for Rose to return. The Bulls are used to it though. They know they need...

Bulls eye playoffs after challenging season

(Eds: Updates with quotes, details. With AP Photos.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer The Chicago Bulls won 45 games without a single point from Derrick Rose.

Looking at Game #1 of the Bulls-Nets series

With Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah likely out due to injury, Luol Deng will be leading the way for the Bulls on Brooklyn this evening     Well, it's finally here. The playoff game the Nets have been waiting to play for nearly seven years now. And their opponent, the Chicago Bulls, are about as snake-bit by injuries as any team in the Eastern Conference...

Not excited about Bulls vs. Nets NBA Playoffs, not one bit

Derrick Rose vs. Deron Williams. Three or four years ago I would have been all about that marquee point guard match-up in the NBA playoffs. Tonight, one won’t even play and the other is past his prime. Neither one of them comes even remotely close to earning their grossly exorbitant paycheck. That’s why the Chicago Bulls vs. the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA Playoffs means very little...

Deng, Hinrich, Rose out for Game 3

Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose will sit out Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night.
