I have not delved into Derrick Rose’s ancestry, but for one day at least he and the rest of the Bulls were Irish, wearing the green and everything Thursday night against the Nets.

Rose decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a huge dunk off a give-and-go from the top of the key. Just watch below.

The dunk was impressive, but Rose’s real contribution was a strong, hard-working defensive effort that hounded Deron Williams into a 1-for-12 shooting night. That is what got the Bulls a win.

    This is besides the point, but when will defenders figure out Derrick Rose’s up-and-under move? In about 80% of his shots at the basket he jumps and shows the ball right away to bait the defender; then, while still rising, he swings the ball under the defender and gets off a tough shot. He’s phenomenal at making those shots and I just wonder when somebody will figure it out.

    But then everybody still falls for Dwyane Wade’s pump fakes…
