Derrick Rose

  1. Atlanta Hawks Guard Lou Williams Not Yet Cleared for Training Camp

    Sep 21, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette, Lou Williams, John Salmons

    As Derrick Rose taught us last season, recoveries from ACL surgery can vary wildly. Some guys can recover in as quickly as six or seven months, while others can take more than a year before they even feel “right” again. Every body is different, and expecting athletes to rehabilitate at the exact same level and…

  2. NBA updates media access rules for 2013-14 season

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    lebron-all-star houston

    We understand that the casual fan probably doesn’t care how often players and coaches are formally made to be available to the media throughout the course of the season, or how long reporters have to wait after games to speak to a team’s star players. But it affects the coverage you’ll receive, especially from guys…

  3. Still no official timeline for Gallinari return in Denver

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…

  4. Derrick Rose says he added 10 pounds, is stronger going to rim

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Five

    When Derrick Rose first entered the league he had the quickness to drive the lane and when he got there he used his impressive body control to avoid contact and hit some ridiculous layups. Except that was not what coaches want — draw the contact, get to the line and get the sure points, plus…

  5. Marco Belinelli says offer to play for Spurs was too good to pass up

    Sep 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets - Game Seven

    Marco Belinelli ended up being a key contributor for the Bulls last year, thanks in part to the absence of Derrick Rose, but also because of the incredibly high number of injuries his teammates sustained, especially near the end of the season. It wasn’t supposed to be that way in Chicago, and with the team…

  6. Derrick Rose says he won’t recruit free agents to play with him in Chicago

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    d rose lebron

    Recruiting has always been a way of life in college sports, but free agents on the professional level have historically made decisions based more on money, location, and chances of winning (usually in that order) over everything else. But the league has shifted in recent years. There was a time when superstars relished the opportunity…

  7. Report: Thibodeau not happy Deng could walk after season

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    While everyone around the Bulls plays it down, let’s just say it’s accepted as fact around the rest of the league that coach Tom Thibodeau and Bulls GM Gar Forman (and the rest of the front office) don’t see things the same way. There is naturally some tension in any coach/GM relationship — a coach…

  8. TNT’s Steve Kerr predicts Bulls will knock off Heat this year

    Sep 17, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The last team to make the NBA Finals four straight years was Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics from 1984-87 — so many things need to go right for you to make the Finals (health being the key) that it’s hard to have it all break for you year after year after year. So expect a lot…

  9. How many “real” point guards are there in the NBA? Gary Payton says three.

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    The NBA game is different then when Gary Payton was a lock down defender on his way to a Hall of Fame career — in 2000 the NBA took away hand checking and any contact on the perimeter, a year later zone defenses were permitted again in the NBA. Payton told us at PBT earlier…

  10. Derrick Rose says he would like to play for Team USA at World Championships

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Kevin Durant and Kevin Love flew to Las Vegas this summer to tell coach Mike Krzyzewski personally that they were in for next summer, when Team USA will compete in the World Championships in Spain. Now you can add Derrick Rose to the mix. He is coming off an entire missed season after an ACL…

  11. Derrick Rose says he’s been working on shooting range

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:23 AM EDT

    NBA Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose acknowledges fans as he attends a promotional event as part of his Asia tour in Hong Kong

    When Derrick Rose was out with his torn ACL, Tim Hardaway — who went through the same injury as a player — said Rose needed to use the time to become a better jump shooter. Hardaway should know, he had some of his best years after he returned. Rose will be back at the start of…

  12. How good will Russell Westbrook be upon his return?

    Sep 16, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    The good news is Russell Westbrook will be on the court with the Oklahoma City Thunder when training camp starts in a couple of weeks — he is recovered from the torn meniscus that knocked him out of the playoffs last season, and ultimately knocked the Thunder out of the playoffs as well. But will…

  13. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Brooklyn Nets

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Newly acquired Net's Pierce, Garnett and Terry hold up their new jerseys as they pose for a photo with principal owner Prokhorov after a news conference in Brooklyn

    Today kicks off ProBasketballTalk’s season previews. Over the next six weeks we will preview every team in the NBA, looking at the upcoming season. We will start in the Atlantic Division. Last season: Brooklyn baby!! The Nets moved out of New Jersey to Brooklyn, into their sweet new crib the Barclays Center, wearing a new…

  14. Grizzlies GM says Derrick Rose helped influence Pau Gasol trade

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rose Calipari Memphis

    Back in 2008, when Memphis traded Pau Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, Aaron McKie and the rights to an untested European player in Marc Gasol, Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace was ripped by seemingly everyone. It was said he got nothing for giving up an elite player such as Gasol (who instantly…

  15. Derrick Rose: ‘I think I am 100 percent’

    Sep 14, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    It’s the answer we should expect from Derrick Rose by now, almost 17 months after he suffered a torn ACL injury that kept him out of action for all of last season. But it’s still great to hear him actually say it. Rose, speaking while on a promotional tour overseas for adidas, says he’s feeling…

  16. Brad Stevens: No timetable for Rajon Rondo’s return, urges him to do so when ready

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brooklyn Nets, Kris Humphries

    There’s far less of a sense of urgency for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics lineup than there was for say, Derrick Rose to try to get back on the court for the Bulls last season. We may see a similar vibe around the Celtics to the one we saw in Chicago, though, at…

  17. Report: Nerlens Noel to sign shoe deal with Reebok

    Sep 13, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    The conventional wisdom is big men don’t sell shoes, attacking perimeter do — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Derrick Rose. But Nerlens Noel, the center out of Kentucky who will play with the Sixers once he gets healthy (remember the knee injury last season) thinks he can be the exception to the rule. Noel…

  18. Jimmy Butler played some one-on-one with Mark Wahlberg

    Sep 12, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    png

    In case you were wondering if Jimmy Butler was blowing up…. I just gave Mark Wahlberg baskets!! I knew he couldn't guard me!— Jimmy Butler (@mr_2eight1) September 11, 2013 I’m fairly sure that Butler did not score 100 points, in fact over at CSNChicago.com they said the final score was 7-6 Butler. Bulls fans should…

  19. Miami Heat sign Michael Beasley to training camp contract

    Sep 11, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    heat beasley

    Michael Beasley is back with the Miami Heat… at least for training camp. The Miami Heat have signed Beasley to a training camp contract, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the team. The deal is for one year at the veteran minimum ($1 million for him) and this is…

  20. Saunders “very confident” Adelman will return as T-Wolves coach

    Sep 11, 2013, 11:18 AM EDT

    Rick Adelman, Mary Kay Adelman

    At this point, there is little doubt Rick Adelman is coming back to coach the Minnesota Timberwolves this year. But if situations like the one with Derrick Rose last year teach us anything it is this: If you don’t answer the question people will keep asking it. Adelman missed a chunk of games last season…

  21. Bulls to bring Mike James into camp… and he could make team

    Sep 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Mike James, Brian Roberts

    Over the past few years Mike James has been up in the NBA, then dumped, then brought back, then dumped again — a relationship that was more off-and-on than you with your college girlfriend/boyfriend. Now it looks like he could be back — and he might stick in Chicago. Marc Stein of ESPN first reported…

  22. Carmelo Anthony expects the Knicks to be better than they were last year

    Sep 11, 2013, 12:14 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The Knicks had a great regular season in 2013, finishing with the second-best record in the East behind only the defending champion Miami Heat. Carmelo Anthony leading the league in scoring was a big part of that, as was J.R. Smith putting together a season worthy of him bringing home the league’s Sixth Man of…

  23. Updated: Bulls’ Luol Deng’s agent says All-Star will become free agent next summer

    Sep 10, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    We passed along word last night from our man Aggrey Sam at CSNChicago.com that talks between Luol Deng and the Chicago Bulls on a contract extension had broken down. Now the Chicago Tribune is reporting the Bulls have told Deng the talks are tabled until after the season so Deng’s agent says the All-Star forward…

  24. Report: Luol Deng, Bulls contract extension talks stall out

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    Earlier this summer, the Chicago Bulls and Luol Deng started talking contract extension. He is set to make $14.3 million this season in the final year of his deal and there was interest on both sides to extend their 10-year relationship. However, talks have stalled out, reports Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. But when the talks…

  25. Nobody in Japan can stop Derrick Rose 1-on-1, not even Samurai

    Sep 9, 2013, 11:23 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Derrick Rose was in Japan this weekend, part of his swing through parts of Asia to sell some shoes. While in Japan, he just breaks a bunch of guys down off the dribble one-on-one… and then beats three Samurai to the rack. To be fair, the Samurai armor was not designed with lightning quick lateral…
