Pretty much all of us have had something to say about the Derrick Rose saga, and most of the comments have been critical. Now we have an interesting perspective from Grant Hill, who is convinced he returned too soon from a serious ankle injury after he too was cleared to play by his doctors.
Part of the Rose controversy was fueled by Rose’s own brother, who implied Rose didn’t want to return so fast to a team that had no chance of winning a title. That statement coupled with the amazing run by this depleted Bulls team has certainly heightened the scrutiny on Rose. He’s also said very little, so that also fuels the wild speculation. So the feeding frenzy is partly his own fault.
That said, it all comes back to the hard fact that Rose suffered a very serious knee injury, and the fact he’s been cleared by doctors to play doesn’t settle the issue of whether he should be out there. Only he knows how his knee feels.
I don’t think Rose owes his team to go out there if he’s still concerned ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Derrick Rose and his young son, P.J., enjoyed the Miami sun on Wednesday afternoon before the Bulls lost Game 2 to the Miami Heat 115-78.
When you a superstar like Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose, you get to snack on the big bowl of candy on the Chicago Bulls bench during game two of the Miami Heat/Bulls series:
Clearly, Derrick is either a fan of “peach rings” or “life savers”.

Maybe the Bulls really did expected him back in Game 3 and then Rose trolled them. I have to ask someone how far in advance this tickets are printed.
They had to wait until at least 1st round is over, to know what date and time, so it had to be recent. No need to tease Bulls fans like this.
That is cruel and unusual punishment.
This has to be difficult on Bulls fans. Before and after Game 2 of the Heat vs. Bulls series a bunch of unconfirmed reports surfaced that Rose would be making his triumphant return to the Bulls in Game 3 of the series.
There reports were very vague, they went from, he would definitely play to he would wear his uniform, but just sit on the bench (which made absolutely no sense...
After Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinals match-up between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat there were some that were wondering if the Bulls actually had a shot at upsetting the defending world champs.

...if the Bulls were to win the championship?
So the kid who survived the South Side of Chicago, one of America's harshest urban battlegrounds, is now a wimp. Yeah, the kid who learned the game getting bullied and beat up by three older, basketball-playing brothers has grown soft at the tender age of 24.
Derrick Rose is a p---y.
I ain't buying it. No way. Chicago's Englewood neighborhood swallows cowards for snacks...
Every bit of hate Derrick Rose has inspired in Chicago Bulls and NBA fans- he’s truly earned it. Yes, both the Chicago Bulls front office/media relations and Derrick Rose himself are to blame on this clusterf…..
However, Derrick Rose is the highly paid superstar; he’s the icon. It’s on him to rise above and do something about why the whole city (rightfully) hates him currently...
With the Eastern Conference Semifinals shifting to Chicago for the next two games, the attention has turned toward Derrick Rose once again. Anticipation has been that if Rose were to make a return to the court this season, it would have to be at home for maximum momentum and comfort.

Throughout this over the top suffocating coverage of Derrick Rose and his repaired ACL, comparisons have been made from Adrian Peterson to Greg Oden, to Bernard King, to Rob Gronkowski (yes seriously, because he came back too soon they’re saying!). The immediate defenders of Rose are quick to recall how Chris Paul never was the same again ...
Chicago Bulls canter Joakim Noah said Thursday that getting a middle finger thrown into his face as he walked off the court after getting ejected in Game 2 on Wednesday against the Miami Heat wasn’t fun but it wouldn’t ruin his day. “Do you have fun when

As expected, the Chicago Bulls entered their Game 3 matchup against the Miami Heat without forward Luol Deng or guards Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose. While they still put up a fight, the Bulls ultimately dropped last night’s contest to go down 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters – including USA Today – that Chicago would be without Deng, Hinrich...
