To the dismay of many Bulls fans Derrick Rose said in his USA today interview published February 13th, that he wouldn’t mind sitting out the whole season. He said he wants to be 110% before he returns and according to his estimation he’s only 80%. This comes as a little bit of shock to Bulls fans who have been suffering for nearly 10 months waiting for Rose’s return. Prior to the interview various Bulls insider and Coach Thibs said that Rose was taking part in full contact practice. The thought behind full court practice is that if he can practice he can play, so what’s the holdup?!
Once I wiped away my tears after realizing that Derrick won’t be returning, I came to my senses and realized what all was at stake. Derrick is the face of one of the most popular franchises in the NBA, and he is also the face of Addias. Signing a $250 million contract nearly a two years ago. He is simply to expensive to risk. Derrick Rose is the second coming in Chicago the organization knows that and Derrick knows that.
If Rose was to come back a shell of himself or comeback and get injured again his personal stock and the championship dreams of the Bulls will never come true. As rational fans we have to ask ourselves if Derrick Comes back now what are we going to win, really? Even though we can challenge the Heat there’s no way we can beat them with the current roster that we have. We still lack a second go to scorer. No one can create their own shot, and until the Bulls address this issue we won’t get past the Heat. That issue is bigger than Derrick Rose. Looking at it from this prospective I can understand why Derrick Rose wouldn’t want to come back, what would he come back for? It’s best for Derrick Rose to sit out and get as healthy as possible, it’s simply not worth money or our championship dreams to bring back Derrick Rose this season. So Bulls fan we have to be patient, Derrick will be worth the wait!
