The Chicago Bulls were only hoping they would have to tread water for half a season then their MVP would come back and they could return to the team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals just two years ago.
So far, they have done that.
They are 31-23, good enough for the fifth seed in the East, and if Derrick Rose came back today (and was at 100 percent), the Bulls would be a tough team to contend with for the rest of the year.
Despite this rather surprising level of success, Rose’s brother Reggie is not happy with the team. He says the Bulls have not done enough to put together a championship level team.
"What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami," Reggie Rose said. "What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs? Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put...

MISSING THE POINT
Derrick Rose's brother/manager Reggie vented some frustration regarding the Bulls' lack of moves at the trade deadline.
The Chicago Bulls have been an NBA franchise since the 1966-67 season. Until the mid 80’s the Bulls had been little more than a mediocre franchise at best. That all changed with the drafting of a 6’6 Guard from the University of North Carolina in 1984. The Bulls would win six NBA titles in the 90’s and with Derrick Rose leading the way, again appear to be on the verge...
The Bulls didn’t make a move at the deadline despite a rumbling that they were seeking a taker for Rip Hamilton, which would put them under the salary cap. Derrick Rose’s brother and manager, Reggie Rose, let out his frustrations with the inactive Bulls after the deadline passed.
According to ESPN Chicago:
Derrick Rose’s brother and manager Reggie Rose said Thursday the franchise...
Finally some good news for Bulls fans! According to @KCJHoop, Derrick Rose participated in 5 on 5 practice earlier today. One can conclude that there was no setbacks from Monday’s 5 on 5 practice, and that is a positive step towards his return. ESPNChicago reported that a source close to the Bulls thought that Rose looked “really good” on Monday. Combining the fact that...
Derrick Rose issued a statement Thursday to distance himself from his brother’s criticism of the Chicago Bulls.
Rose’s brother and manager, Reggie Rose, criticized the Bulls for not making any moves at the trade deadline to help propel the team past the defending champion Miami Heat.
“What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better...
The Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose may not be appearing on an NBA basketball court, at least in a game action any time soon, but he is appearing on pizza boxes. The Bulls Derrick Rose, pizza do I need to throw in the Blues Brothers somehow just so you can have all the Chicago stereotypes in one place?
Chicago based pizza chain Giordano’s (every time tourists visit me going to Giordano’s...
Derrick Rose’s brother ripped the Bulls Thursday for “not [putting] anything around” the former MVP, and it’s become the hot topic around the league to say the least. Charles Barkley weighed in during TNT’s broadcast of the Bulls-Heat game Thursday night, and as usual, was refreshingly honest.
If a reporter calls you, he wants you to say something bad about somebody else...
Injured Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is ''not quite'' ready to return from his knee injury, coach Tom Thibodeau said Friday.
The former MVP point guard continues to practice without restrictions, but his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee remains up in the air.
''We'll see when he's ready,'' Thibodeau said...
Derrick Rose’s brother went off on the Bulls management about not making in trades and Charles Barkley said what everyone else was thinking.
It isn’t unusual for siblings and parents to speak up, but they are doing much more harm than good, so know your role and shut your mouth. You aren’t the star, so stop acting like one.
Bulls star Derrick Rose is managed by his older brother Reggie. Derrick is still working his way back from a torn ACL that occurred during last season’s playoffs but his brother feels the franchise isn’t doing enough to surround Rose with quality players. As yesterday’s trade deadline passed with no movement from Chicago, Reggie let it be known he wasn’t happy.
