Video: Part three of Derrick Rose’s “The Return” videos

Sep 19, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT

In case you thought that in the past week Derrick Rose stopped working hard or decided he didn’t really miss basketball all that much, we bring you the third installment of adidas’ “The Return” series on his recovery from an ACL injuries.

As always when I hear Rose talk about getting back on the court, my concern is that it happens too fast, before he is 100 percent healed and ready. I get his passion, but this has to be thought about not in terms of this season but the one after that and the one after that (and so on and so on). Rose is at the start of his career, he needs this taken care of, not something that lingers and is a recurring issue. I know that, the Bulls doctors know that, even Rose knows that on an intellectual level. But when it comes time for games he’s going to push, and needs to remember that some random game in February is not important.

Just a reminder, think after the All-Star break for a Rose return.

    Sadly, (because he is one of my favorite players) ‘The Days of W(h)ine and Rose(s)’ is starting to look like a dog and pony show…

    I liked the video. I immediately thought LeBron when I saw the title but it’s a good message. Makes me hate the Bulls a tiny bit less.

    If there was a star who reminds us that he is human, it’s Rose.
