Derrick Rose showed flashes of vintage self in return to Chicago (VIDEO)

Aug 17, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

After missing most of the last two seasons with injuries, Derrick Rose returned to the United Center with Team USA Saturday night — and reminded them what they’ve been missing.

The first quarter started out a little slow for Rose (he missed a dunk and seemed nervous at the start) but after a few minutes out he came back in and soon unleashed that crossover on Raul Neto then scored over Anderson Varejao of Brazil. It looked like he was back.

Rose finished with seven points (on five shots) with a couple assists, which may not seem a lot of points but Team USA is deep with offensive talent. Rose still showed he could take over a play when needed, as he did at the end of the first half.

    OMG 7 POINTS AMAZINGGGGG! people praise everything Rose does now that he’s back jesus get off his nuts where them Anthony Davis and James Harden highlights at Davis had 20 and Harden had 18. I rock with Rose and it’s good to see him doing his thing but I’m getting annoyed now.

    Everybody get off Rose nuts. Everybody forgets the first month he played last year he wasn’t actually warranted of all this attention he’s getting. Wish him luck but the love fest is weird

      Not weird, it just let you know how important he is to the game.

    Travel much? Rose clearly takes 3 steps on the first video. I don’t expect a call in the NBA (as travelling is a joke) but this is supposed to be FIBA
