I really hope he's going to be back by this season. I think this Bulls team can compete. I don't think they're contenders but the east is still weak and it looks like the only teams that will really compete out east are the Celtics and Heat. Bulls can very easily be the 3rd best team unless the Knicks finally come together.
I'm liking Derrick being out there with commercials and interviews while going through rehab. He's looking really good. I don't care when he comes back, I just don't want to see the guy on the court before Febuary.
