Does anyone find it odd that team physicians perform surgery? I mean, maybe that’s common, but I always feel like in other sports, the team doctor doesn’t operate on the players. “Okay, boys, clear out your jock straps, we need this massage table and Miss Michigan’s knife so I can repair this anterior cruciate ligament!” In any event, Bulls team doctor Brian Cole performed surgery on Derrick Rose three days ago, then held a press conference and told everyone the “surgery went really well. No surprises.”
Well, wait, there is one surprise: Rose will need 8-12 months for a full recovery. Aye to twah who what? That’s like when you have a microwavable food item that says “nuke on high for 3-5 minutes.” Not that 8 months is a short time span, but 8-12 months is a huge window. It is the difference between Rose playing and Rose missing all of the ’12-’13 season.
Come next year, I’m not going anywhere near Rose, because a Rose by any other name is still just as gimpy. Even if he is back by Ja

And as if things...

Derrick Rose is a tremendous asset to the NBA in every single way imaginable. That's my professional way of saying I'm a huge fan of Derrick Rose; the player, the competitor, the leader, and the person. It was as devastating an injury as I can remember when he went down in the first round of these playoffs against the Sixers too. Not just devastating for his Chicago Bulls...
