Derrick Rose continues to look good in the preseason — he still has the explosiveness, something you could see in this highlight against the Memphis Grizzlies. He goes coast-to-coast so fast and Memphis is just not able to keep up.
Rose is still a bit rusty (3-of-8 shooting) but the good news for Chicago is it looks like the usual preseason rust, not “I’ve been out for a year” rust.
It’s this simple: If Rose is back, the Bulls are contenders for the big prize.
