Derrick Rose

  1. LeBron doesn’t see Paul Pierce, anyone in NBA as his rival

    Oct 25, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Does LeBron James have a peer in the NBA? A rival? He says no. Back in the day, when LeBron James was with the Cavaliers, he and Paul Pierce in Boston had some epic individual battles. But LeBron says that time has passed and he doesn’t look to play one-on-one like that anymore — his…

  2. Derrick Rose’s advice to Russell Westbrook: “Take his time”

    Oct 24, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    I can hear groans coming out of Chicago (and a few from Oklahoma City) after just the headline. We don’t need to recap how Derrick Rose missed all of last season for the Bulls as he worked to return from ACL surgery. He had the right to stay out until he felt he could play…

  3. Rondo says he is “87%” and “won’t come back unless I know I’m myself again”

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:07 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    There still is no timeline, no date set for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics from the ACL injury he suffered last January — yet there are positive signs that time is near. He has been working out on the court daily and said he got fitted recently for a knee brace, which happens…

  4. Thunder’s Reggie Jackson has no idea how to guard Derrick Rose (VIDEO)

    Oct 24, 2013, 1:12 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    This is a prime example of how deadly Derrick Rose can be off the dribble with his speed and ability to change direction at a moment’s notice. Reggie Jackson of the Thunder simply has no idea what to do with Rose here, and gets completely turned around before being simply stopped in his tracks. The…

    It’s time for our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Skittles… • If you are rebuilding with youth, rule one is…

  6. Heat to wear new gold-lettered uniforms, jackets opening night

    Another ring, another uniform. On opening night the Miami Heat are going to get their championship rings, watch another banner go up into the rafters at AmericanAirlines Arena, and during it all LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and teammates will be wearing a special new uniform and warm-up jacket designed by adidas. You can see the…

  7. Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich out with concussion suffered in preseason win vs. Pacers

    Oct 19, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    Kirk Hinrich is out for at least a few days after suffering a concussion during the Bulls’ preseason win over the Pacers on Friday. From Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago: “He’s out. He has a concussion,” Thibodeau said after Saturday’s practice. “Not sure (how long he’ll be out). Probably a couple days.” Thibodeau acknowledged that…

  8. Derrick Rose on rivalry between Bulls and Pacers: ‘I don’t really see it’

    Oct 19, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    As we’ve discussed before in the recent case of the budding rivalry between the Nets and the Knicks, whether or not a rivalry exists is often times in the eye of the beholder. Where one team may view another as a rival, that team may not exactly see things the same way. A rivalry would…

  9. Joakim Noah out for a week (at least) with groin strain

    Oct 18, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah will play through smaller injuries, sometimes to the point that they worsen and worsen until he has to sit an extended period of time (he’s done that with plantar fasciitis, for example). With this being preseason, the Bulls aren’t taking that chance. Noah has battled a sore groin through training camp so he…

  10. Derrick Rose’s high school coach says Rose driven by not wanting to disappoint

    Oct 17, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    There were a lot of disappointed (and pissed off, frankly) Bulls fans last year that Derrick Rose didn’t return from an ACL surgery to lead the Bulls into the playoffs. He said he didn’t feel right and wasn’t ready (and for anyone to question that from the sidelines is ridiculous, but that’s another discussion). Rose’s…

  11. Derrick Rose says he wants to play in 2016 Olympics

    Oct 17, 2013, 10:54 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    We know one Team USA assistant coach — Tom Thibodeau — will be in his corner. Derrick Rose reiterated on Wednesday that he might play next summer for Team USA in the World Championships in Spain, and he really wants to go to Brazil for 2016, as reported at “For sure, I would love…

    Oct 16, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Derrick Rose played his first game in front of his hometown fans at the United Center since April of 2012 on Wednesday, getting the nod in the starting lineup in a preseason matchup with the Pistons. Rose got going early, and scored eight of his team’s first 13 points. But this play in the second…

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose waits for the start of a media interview at the start of the team's training camp at the Berto Arena in Chicago, Illinois

    Derrick Rose‘s return is certainly the biggest story in the NBA’s Central Division, but it is not the only one. In this edition of PBT Extra, Kay Adams and I focus on all the teams in this division: Did the Bucks get addition through subtraction? Is it Finals or bust for the Pacers? Just how…

  14. Report: Adidas ready to throw $180 million at Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 15, 2013, 7:06 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    You never know for sure if a player is going to turn out to be a superstar — Greg Oden was taken in front of Kevin Durant, Michael Jordan went No. 3, Kobe Bryant No. 13. But sometimes you do know (LeBron James, Derrick Rose) and most scouts and teams believe Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins…

  15. Taj Gibson might be Bulls’ best player in camp, Tom Thibodeau says

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson,  Kevin Seraphin, Trevor Booker

    Derrick Rose will be the Bulls’ best player next season. In some order, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Jimmy Butler and Carlos Boozer will follow. Taj Gibson has a chance to join that secondary group. In three preseason games, he’s averaging 17.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game. Preseason games don’t mean much, but…

  16. Nene booed by fans in his native Brazil

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:14 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Nene does a lot for his native Brazil. He goes back every summer and donates both money and his time to charitable causes, when he retires he said he plans to return and work at a church down there. But what he doesn’t do much is play for the Brazilian national team. He did it…

  17. Scottie Pippen says there’s ‘no doubt’ that Derrick Rose will win a championship with Bulls

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Scottie Pippen knows about NBA championships. He won six of them playing alongside Michael Jordan with the Chicago Bulls, and now serves the team as Special Advisor to the President & COO. Pippen was in Brazil with the Bulls as part of the team’s participation in the league’s Global Games, and believes there are more championships…

  18. Derrick Rose says he could’ve played through knee soreness that kept him out of Brazil exhibition

    Oct 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose sat out of the Bulls’ preseason game against the Wizards in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee. Team personnel made sure to point out that this was simply a precautionary measure; there was nothing structurally wrong with Rose’s knee, and no MRI was scheduled. Rose…

  19. Derrick Rose to sit out Bulls’ preseason game in Brazil due to knee soreness

    Oct 12, 2013, 4:42 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose attends a practice ahead of NBA Global Games Rio 2013 in Rio de Janeiro

    Derrick Rose looked great in his return to NBA action last week, showing every bit of the trademark speed and explosiveness we remembered seeing from the former MVP when he was last on the court almost 18 months prior. Rose was out for so long due to needing extended time to rehab from a torn…

  20. Horace Grant says Michael Jordan could score 45 a game in today’s NBA

    Oct 11, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Horace Grant is doing his best to add to the mythology of Michael Jordan… we all might as well join in. I’ve heard Jordan turned water into wine, slayed the Nemean lion, and along with Babe the Big Blue Ox dug the Grand Canyon. Grant is with the Bulls in Rio for an exhibition game…

  21. Carmelo isn’t over Pacers series

    Oct 10, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    When LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, critics decried the end of competitive balance. Many proclaimed the Heat would roll to a championship, defacing what had once been an honor that went to a team that earned it through grit and hard work. What happened? Miami lost in the Finals. Most…

  22. Derrick Rose dressed up as Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson. For his kid.

    Oct 9, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT


                            Take my word for it, as a father you do some pretty ridiculous things for your young children. It’s just when I do it usually only my wife and a few friends are witnesses. When you’re Derrick Rose and, I don’t know, say…

  23. Derrick Rose looked good going coast-to-coast Monday (VIDEO)

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    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…

  24. Joakim Noah officially signs with adidas

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Since he came into the league, Joakim Noah has stayed true to his French roots and worn Le Coq Sportif shoes, the company his tennis star father helped make famous back in the 1970s. No more — Noah is an adidas guy. This had been rumored for some time but he officially signed on the…

  25. Derrick Rose wanted more minutes in Bulls opener

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Tom Thibodeau was pretty clear from the start — Derrick Rose was going to get normal preseason minutes for a starter. That works out to about 20 minutes a game. That’s exactly what Rose got in the Bulls first game — but he wanted more, he told Aggrey Sam of Rose played 20 minutes…
