I mean, he has to, right?
Having Wade and Bosh leading him into the playoffs wouldn’t have been enough to takedown a Chicago Bulls powerhouse, with a healthy Derrick Rose of course.
But like most things dealing with the reality of LeBron James, this is sadly overlooked.
Rose tore his ACL last season in their first game of the playoffs. Such has been the luck of Chicago. Rose isn’t expected to return until the All Star break of ’13, at the earliest.
Enjoy your fluke championship Miami. Because Chicago, Boston, OKC and LA all stand in your way, legimately reloaded.

AIN'T NO BULL

There have been many flicks involving the return of the hero. Movies such as "The Return of the Kind" from the Lord of the Rings trilogy to the best, "The Return of the Jedi" of the Star Wars saga but it seems there is a new entry in this genre - the return of Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose.

Though Derrick Rose gave fans a reassuring shout out and thank you for support video through his Facebook page in addition to the freshly released return video by adidas, the superstar point guard has yet to open up 1-on-1 about his ACL injury that cut the Bulls’ title hopes short in Game 1 of the 2012 playoffs and sent him on a 8-12 month recovery mission – until now. Derrick...
Bulls star Derrick Rose suffered a horrific knee injury during the playoffs. Adidas has decided to chronicle Rose’s rehab through a webseries entitled, #TheReturn. I think this is a great move on Adidas part. It keeps the focus on what DRose is great at, the game of basketball. It also shapes a narrative that [...]
As we head into the challenge round of our All Time NBA Mock Draft we have learned a couple of things about people’s views on the history of the NBA.
