LucklessWonder: So he's only going to play in 3 games this postseason?
Devo: Time to roll out the Derrick Rose is coming back story. Hopes he doesn't. This isn't his team. It would be like rollling Jamir Nelson out in the Finals.
El Brujo: He was cleared to play like 2 months ago, right? I'd bet a hundred bucks that he doesn't play Friday. This guy seems to have some deep confidence issues or something else going on. I wonder if his career is actually done and we don't know it.
Electromax: instead of at a hostile arena.
Orgasmatron138: Even if Derrick had come back as soon as he was cleared, and was in prime game shape right now, I still don't think they take 4 from the Heat.Thibs is the best coach in the league, but he's not a miracle worker. The Bulls don't have enough top superstar talent.
Dafatone: I think they'd have as good a shot as anyone (except a healthy OKC team). It could happen.
Lost Thought 00: And then he'll be immediately injured and forced to sit out for another year. rehabbing despite being medically cleared. He's the NBA's Crosby.
Lando Lincoln: God's not telling, Derek, but the doctors are. So get your ass out there.
IAmRight: El Brujo: He was cleared to play like 2 months ago, right? I'd bet a hundred bucks that he doesn't play Friday. This guy seems to have some deep confidence issues or something else going on. I wonder if his career is actually done and we don't know it.Well, if he comes back now, then the Bulls lose, he gets blamed for it and everyone says "should he have come back? It seemed to disrupt the team's chemistry and cost them the series." If he comes back and they win, well, sh*t, they've already won without him so far. He is in a lose-lose situation.People now SAY that they figure the Bulls are still going to lose this series, but what people say prior to something happening has nothing to do with how they will treat an event after the fact.
Tiberius Gracchus: Lando Lincoln: God's not telling, Derek, but the doctors are. So get your ass out there.B-b-b-b-but Reggie and BJ said I need to hide out until I can beat the Heat - I shouldn't waste my t-t-t-time on these scrubs. And now N-N-N-N-Noah took over the team - and it's not m-m-m-mine anymore!
Car_Ramrod: But in the end, it's just 1 season. He has a long career ahead of him. It's not like this Bulls team has been together forever and this is their last chance to win anything. It's completely revamped from last year. At this point, I'm totally fine with him starting fresh next year, and it really will not affect how I feel about him as a player or a person.
Car_Ramrod: Yea, Noah and Rose sure seem to have a horrible relationship. You're spot on.
Tiberius Gracchus: Car_Ramrod: Yea, Noah and Rose sure seem to have a horrible relationship. You're spot on.That's not what I mean. Noah is coming out shining in all this willing to fight anyone who so much as insinuates Rose is weak - you know - like a good teammate and leader should do. He's shouldering the burden on and off the court for this team.What the Rose situation has shown is that it is Noah's team now. Rose is an amazing player - best on the roster - and absolutely key to any future success. But, he's going to be playing on Noah's court next year, not the other way round.
Arkanaut: "Derrick Rose" -- 11 letters. "Barack Obama" -- 11 letters. Derrick Rose plays for the Chicago Bulls, Obama got his political start in Chicago.FURTHERMORE, If you translate "DERRICK ROSE" into numbers, where A=1, B=2, C=3, etc, you get D=4, E=5, R=18, R=18, I=9, C=3, K=11, R=18, O=15, S=19, E=5; total is 125. 125 = 5^3. The game takes place on the FIFTH day of the week (Sunday does not count because it is a day of rest), and is the THIRD game of the series. COINCIDENCE?!?!?!Plus, just check Revelations 5:3: "And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon." It's pretty clear what that means. IF Derrick Rose is allowed to step onto the court tonight, Obama will finally take his throne as the Anti-Christ, and Rose will be his herald, and the takeover of the world government will be financed through Obama's secret bank account at Fifth Third Bank.
Lando Lincoln: Lost Thought 00: And then he'll be immediately injured and forced to sit out for another year. rehabbing despite being medically cleared. He's the NBA's Crosby.See if you can spot the difference:"I think that if a doctor clears you to play, that gives you a lot of confidence going out there knowing that you can play and take a hit, so I'm not concerned," said Crosby, who will wear a protective plastic shield attached to his helmet to try to limit contact with his jaw area.vsHis brother and manager Reggie Rose ripped the Bulls for standing pat at the trade deadline in an interview with ESPNChicago.com, saying it could be a "big factor" in whether Derrick plays this season. Then, the website reported two weeks ago that Derrick Rose had been medically cleared to play but told the team he won't until he can dunk with confidence off his left foot. All that fueled the idea that the team and its star were not on the same page, although Rose has said there is no rift."It could be tomorrow and I feel like I can play the next game," Rose said as the Bulls practiced before Thursday night's game against Portland. "Nobody knows but God."God's not telling, Derek, but the doctors are. So get your ass out there.
Shaggy_C: Who needs D Rose? We have Nate Robinson.
germ78: Shaggy_C: Who needs D Rose? We have Nate Robinson.Sadly, there are plenty of stupid people in Chicago who think this. "Durr, we should trade Derrick for a lottery pick. Herp"Yeah, his not coming back in late March/April pissed me off and I don't believe he should play (especially against a physical Heat team that will constantly be knocking him to the floor) in the playoffs. But to say that Nate Robinson is better for the Bulls than Derrick is just plain stupidity.
SlothB77: how can he play in 5-on-5 full court games in practice, but not in playoff games? And the doctors cleared him. He has to get his ass out there and play.
robsul82: Did I just hear practice against teammates is just like real games against opponents?
ongbok: robsul82: Did I just hear practice against teammates is just like real games against opponents?But he is playing 5 on 5 in practice. The 5 on 5 is the important factor.
