Honestly, I will believe it when I see it. Not trying to be negative, just cautious.
That is a major injury to overcome for someone whose game mostly revolves around athleticism, quickness, speed, and change of pace / herky jerky movements.
I'm not taking word of mouth on anything, especially from the "sipping the koolaid" beat reporters. When I see him blowing past defenders, zipping past people off the dribble, using those insane bunnies he had prior to injury to throw down in the lane.
Then and only then will I believe he's back, and the same good old MVP D. Rose. When my own two eyes witness it.
you have the poorest low iq opinion about the bulls on this forum. and you're a bulls fan? go home.
Are you serious, you are the most retarded/deluded bulls fan on this forum. Learn to be a realist like theman. Also rose doesn't exactly define a player who lives off skill, he depends most on his athleticism so injuries like this do affect players trying to mold their game heading into their prime.
Way to keep your expectation low Bulls fans. I don't know how every single one of you is so confident you'll beat Miami.
Man, wtf is your problem? Bulls fans can't get excited that their star player is nearing a return, and the team has been great in absence? Adding Rose would somehow lower our expectations? Are you on crack?
No, what we should do is have no hope, expect the team to go backwards and anything else is a bonus
that explains it, anyone that actually watches the bulls can agree we have a real chance at beating the heat.
Dude, I've been a Bulls fan since you were in diapers, actually even before MJ joined the Bulls. Reggie Theus was my first favorite Bulls player, you've probably never heard of him
I don't look at things through homer glasses like you guys, I love the Bulls but I also know we don't have the necessary weapons to beat Miami in the playoffs. We still need another elite scoring option, what happens when the Heat overload on Rose ( who may not even be close to his MVP version anytime soon? ). Deng gonna take over? Boozer? Belinelli? Or maybe Nate Robinson?
Get real man, believe me, there's nothing I want more than to see Chicago win it all but our roster isn't up there with Miami's, don't even talk to me about the WC's top teams.
Until we get that elite second scoring option, yeah we'll give Miami a run for their money but we'll keep coming up short. I'm old enough to know you don't beat the team with the best player with just one elite player. Shit, LBJ and Wade are better than any of our players, especially considering that Rose probably will be nowhere MVP Rose for a while.
