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.

Enjoy your fluke championship Miami. Because Chicago, Boston, OKC and LA all stand in your way, legimately reloaded.

Derrick Rose Breaks Silence: “That The Closest Thing To Death I’ve Got To”

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...
