The Chicago Bulls are having a pretty good off-season with the addition of Mike Dunleavy Jr and the development of Marquis Teague in the Summer League. But non of this is as important as the news from Madrid, Spain earlier today. Derrick Rose declared himself 100% ready to play and will play the first game of the season according to @hoopshype. Rose did not clarify, but the assumption can be made that Derrick will play in the team’s preseason in October and only then will we see if his explosiveness is the same. By declaring himself ready to play, D-Rose is confirming that he is physically and mentally ready. Rose was criticized by fans and media for nt returning in last year’s playoffs when his team was plagued by injuries. Rust is to be expected, but the former MVP adds a dimension that was missed by the Bulls last year.
The Bulls have decided to give this team as currently assembled one last run even though there have been rumors about the team wanting to amnesty Carlos Boozer or trading for Lamarcus Aldridge. The return of Derrick Rose will energize this team and give them a reason to believe that they can beat the Miami Heat in a seven game series. Come October when The Return is finally complete, Derrick Rose will try to silence his critics and show that sitting out last season was the best decision for himself and the Bulls organizaton.
