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”.

OK. You are way too fired up, lady.
And the dude with you at the game? He can chill out, too.
Miami Heat fans got a new embarrassing photo to add to the “that’s so a Miami Heat fan” montage Wednesday night during a chippy Game 2 of the Heat’s second-round series with the Bulls. Miami had the game well in hand, eventually winning 115-98, but not before nine technical fouls...
There was a report from Hoops World that Derrick Rose “might” be in uniform by Game 3 of the Heat vs. Bulls series. Not his standard suit and tie uniform, but his real basketball uniform. The report didn’t say if Rose would actually play, but just that he might wear his uniform.
It was pretty vague, but Coach Thibodeau doesn’t want to get anyone hopes up.
This Miami Heat fan gave the Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah just one thing after he was ejected for berating a ref — her middle finger. That’s one classy lady don’t you think? The refs ejected Noah’s teammate Taj Gibson as well.
Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah were ejected from Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night after arguing calls.
Gibson seemed to be upset that the referees missed two calls in a row in the fourth quarter, including what appeared to be a goaltend by Chris Andersen. The refs probably weren’t as concerned with small calls since...
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...
As the Chicago Bulls trailed by more than thirty points in the fourth quarter, you could understand if a couple of Chicago players got a little bit angry with officials.
Watch as Chicago’s Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah both get ejected within a couple of minutes and expect some fines/suspensions to come from the NBA league offices in the next twenty-four hours:
Gibson and Noah...
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.
Since Derrick Rose will not slam the door on his return by saying he is coming back one way or...
Just one game into the Eastern Conference Semifinals with the Bulls leading 1-0, Chris Bosh is already tired of talking about his counterpart, Joakim Noah.
According to the Chicago Tribune:
If there was any doubt about the Bulls’ ability to get into the Heat’s heads after a surprising Game 1 triumph, Heat center Chris Bosh reinforced the idea Tuesday with his response to a simple...

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 ...
It's always fun to see the Miami bandwagon fans melt down after a loss. It's so funny to see them complain about the officiating when they get the benefit of the calls 99.9% of the time. In a game where the opponent took just 4 free throws more than them, they are certain that the game was fixed. They are used to getting all the calls and when a crew calls is...
Many people are talking about the way the Miami Heat dismantled the Chicago Bulls in Game 2. The Bulls lost the game and their patience. They shot the ball poorly and felt that the referees where just giving calls to their opponent. Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah got ejected from the game and the Heat fans let them have it.
No matter how you look at it the Bulls got rocked. Yet does...
