Tweet It’s been the Derrick Rose show all preseason for the Chicago Bulls, and it continued Wednesday night in a nationally televised game against the Thunder. Rose again put his athleticism on display by completely turning Thunder guard Reggie Jackson around with this double crossover: Rose finished the game with 26 points and six assists, and has averaged 21.6 points in just 26 mpg over six preseason games. What’s even more impressive, is that he says he’s more athletic than ever and hasn’t really used it yet. That’s scary. Looks like we have all the evidence we need that Rose is recovered from last year’s ACL injury. I guess sitting out all of last season paid off. -ALR
