Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Bulls star Derrick Rose is managed by his older brother Reggie. Derrick is still working his way back from a torn ACL that occurred during last season’s playoffs but his brother feels the franchise isn’t doing enough to surround Rose with quality players. As yesterday’s trade deadline passed with no movement from Chicago, Reggie let it be known he wasn’t happy.
“What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami,” Reggie Rose told ESPNChicago.com. “What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs?
“Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It’s up to the organization to make them better.”
“It’s frustrating to see my brother play his heart and soul out for the team and them not put anything around him,” Reggie Rose said.
Reggie made it clear that he was speaking for himself and not his brother. TNT analyst Charles Barkley weighed in on the elder Rose’s comments at halftime of Heat vs. Bulls, advocating that family stop adding their two cents to the mix.
“His brother needs to shut the hell up, number one,” Barkley said. “Listen man, I’m going to make one of the rules, when I’m king of the world — which is never gonna happen — hey man, we don’t care about your mom, your dad, your brothers and sisters. Stop tweeting. As Herm Edwards would say, ‘Don’t push send.’ Nobody cares what you think. If a reporter calls you, he wants you to say something bad about somebody else, so don’t be a damn idiot. Stop tweeting about coaches and players and stuff. Let the famous person be famous. You just shut the hell up.”
Of course, Derrick has to follow up his brother’s comments with those of his own much like when Eagles QB Michael Vick was left to deal with the aftermath of his brother’s tweets about the state of the team last season.
Statement from D. Rose: “I’ve always felt Bulls organization’s goals have been same as mine & that’s to bring another championship to city.”

MISSING THE POINT
Derrick Rose's brother/manager Reggie vented some frustration regarding the Bulls' lack of moves at the trade deadline.
With a little more than one minute remaining, the Chicago Bulls and Derrick Rose were on the way to a Game 1 playoff victory, but when Rose landed awkwardly on his left knee everything changed.
It wasn’t odd to see Derrick Rose go down, considering he missed 27 games that season with a number of injuries, Bulls fans just hoped it wasn’t anything serious.... Read more
The Chicago Bulls have been an NBA franchise since the 1966-67 season. Until the mid 80’s the Bulls had been little more than a mediocre franchise at best. That all changed with the drafting of a 6’6 Guard from the University of North Carolina in 1984. The Bulls would win six NBA titles in the 90’s and with Derrick Rose leading the way, again appear to be on the verge...
The Bulls didn’t make a move at the deadline despite a rumbling that they were seeking a taker for Rip Hamilton, which would put them under the salary cap. Derrick Rose’s brother and manager, Reggie Rose, let out his frustrations with the inactive Bulls after the deadline passed.

Finally some good news for Bulls fans! According to @KCJHoop, Derrick Rose participated in 5 on 5 practice earlier today.

Derrick Rose issued a statement Thursday to distance himself from his brother’s criticism of the Chicago Bulls.
Rose’s brother and manager, Reggie Rose, criticized the Bulls for not making any moves at the trade deadline to help propel the team past the defending champion Miami Heat.

Is he, or isn’t he? Despite saying his knee “still isn’t feeling right” and that he can’t dunk yet, eyewitnesses say Derrick Rose looked “really good” and is “ready to go” after participating in his first 5-on-5 scrimmage at practice on Monday.

The Chicago Bulls were only hoping they would have to tread water for half a season then their MVP would come back and they could return to the team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals just two years ago.
So far, they have done that.
They are 31-23, good enough for the fifth seed in the East, and if Derrick Rose came back today (and was at 100 percent), the Bulls...
The Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose may not be appearing on an NBA basketball court, at least in a game action any time soon, but he is appearing on pizza boxes. The Bulls Derrick Rose, pizza do I need to throw in the Blues Brothers somehow just so you can have all the Chicago stereotypes in one place?

Injured Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is ''not quite'' ready to return from his knee injury, coach Tom Thibodeau said Friday.
The former MVP point guard continues to practice without restrictions, but his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee remains up in the air.
''We'll see when he's ready,'' Thibodeau said...
Derrick Rose’s brother went off on the Bulls management about not making in trades and Charles Barkley said what everyone else was thinking.
It isn’t unusual for siblings and parents to speak up, but they are doing much more harm than good, so know your role and shut your mouth. You aren’t the star, so stop acting like one.
