Then he needs to come off the bench as a third-stringer. Enough said.

DRose is a ***** thats the real reason. Look at how he got dominated in his "MVP" season in the playoffs when things mattered. Doesn't surprise me he is still sitting out, the guy is mentally weak.

I'm a Heat fan but it's not really fair for you to say that. He carried an offensively impotent team to the ECF but eventually lost to the Heat 4-1. The individual games were a lot more competitive than the series score indicates.

On another note, I get why people are upset that he hasn't returned but lets be realistic. Chicago hasn't had a legit franchise player since MJ and D. Rose is their guy. No point in coming back where he can potentially re-aggravate/slow down the healing process if they're not going to win this season anyway.

How about Chicago losing 17 million if he plays.

Maybe since he's been practicing, he's realizing that he's not what he used to be. Maybe that's messing with his head, that he thinks he should be better than he really is right now.

Maybe he can't play at an All-Star level right now (or ever again) and that's messing with his head. If he steps out there, people are going to be expecting the old Derrick
Rose, when the reality may be that we'll never see that guy again. He may be nowhere close to his old self.

Mad props for being objective. It's what this forum lacks.....

ThatsGame and Sillk bandwagon losers who werent even Heat fans 3 years ago. Those posts are standard for them.

Their opinions hold ZERO weight to everyone reading them.

I've torn my ACL, and coming back to playing any sport after it is very tough, all you can think about is re-tearing it.

Rose has 10000000x more at stake than I did when I tore my ACL, so I find it understandable he will never be the same player because of his mental weakness.

Let's keep it simple:

By now, its probable that the reason that Rose is not returning doesn't have anything to do with his or the doctors' belief that he will reinjure the knee.

And That IS a problem.


Nobody is in 100% playing form when they come back from an injury. But that's a necessary part of the process. When you come back, you have a little more trouble getting by people off the dribble..you get winded easier..Maybe you aren't as aggressive...sometimes you can shoot your ass off and then the next game you feel rusty again..it takes a while...sometimes you think "Damn, I should be dominating this guy and I'm not" .Any of us that have played competitive basketball know how this is....And Rose seems to be trying to skip this process.

My problem with it is he has been cleared for over several months. Then you look at a guy like Adrian Peterson who plays a much more physical game and they are trying to hold him back.

In my opinion, if Derrick Rose wants to sit out then so be it. However, he needs to stop stealing money from the Bulls. If he wants to sit down to be ultra cautious he should have to do it on his own dime.
