Derrick Rose

  1. 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…

  2. Kirk Hinrich sounds more excited than he did all of last season

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Bulls Basketball

    When Kirk Hinrich signed with the Bulls, he was seen as someone who could start point at point guard until Derrick Rose’s return then switch to combo guard or even shooting guard to complement Rose. Hinrich completed the first part of that role last season, starting all 60 of his games at point guard as…

  3. Thibodeau says Rose has improved range on jumper. If so, watch out.

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    When Derrick Rose got injured, long before the silly kerfuffle about his return date, Tim Hardaway was saying Rose could come back with an improved jump shot. Which would make the explosive former MVP even more dangerous. Apparently Hardaway knows what he is talking about (he did go through the same injury and all). Bulls…

  4. Rockets make Ronnie Brewer signing official

    Aug 29, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    There are a lot of interesting ingredients in Houston, but how the final dish turns out remains to be seen. The latest of those interesting pickups is Ronnie Brewer, and that deal with the Rockets has become official, the team announced. Brewer is a good defensive wing who uses very little in terms of offense.…

  5. Vogel says Danny Granger on schedule for return

    Aug 27, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Whatever Danny Granger’s schedule is — hopefully taking part in training camp and being ready to go opening night — he is on it.

  6. Rick Carlisle says Monta Ellis is fastest player in NBA. That seems high.

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:22 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Who is the fastest player dribbling the ball end to end in the NBA? These are the guys who are one-man fast breaks and can get your team points in transition, plus are quick in the half court But who is the fastest? There is no easy metric for this; it’s a bit of an…

  9. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Jimmy butler

    Jimmy Butler is the Chicago Bulls starting two guard. He started 20 games for the Bulls last season then every game in the playoffs. In the offseason, coach Tom Thibodeau has said Butler is the team’s starting two guard, lined up next to Derrick Rose in the backcourt. Butler himself doesn’t see it that way.…

  14. Is Greg Oden going to make a difference in Miami? The only answer is “I don’t know.”

    Aug 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT


    The last time Greg Oden stepped on an NBA court to take part in a game it was Dec. 5, 2009. That would be 1,337 days ago. Or, 191 weeks, if you prefer. And there is a good chance you will not see Oden at the start of next season either — he said he…

  15. John Wall says he’s the best point guard in NBA (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is not the best point guard in the NBA. I think it’s Chris Paul. If you want to debate it’s Tony Parker or Derrick Rose or Kyrie Irving (he will be in a couple of years), those are legitimate arguments to make. Wall hasn’t put himself in that conversation yet, despite his new…

    Here is 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 I love bullet points more than I love a good Phó (and I do love a good Phó)…. • When…

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    The full 2013-14 NBA schedule is likely to be released some time in the next couple of weeks, but there are certain entities (like the league’s broadcast partners, for example) that have seen as close to what will be the final draft as possible. That’s one reason some of the marquee dates are beginning to…

  19. Luol Deng talks about life-threatening illness that kept him out of playoffs

    Jul 31, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    If I were Luol Deng, I would have been pissed off. Deng had gotten sick, had to have a spinal tap to test for meningitis, and the tap went bad causing a serious, life-threatening illness that he could not play through. The Bulls listed him as sick with the flu (which Joakim Noah was playing…

  22. To fix USA Basketball, Colangelo first had to fix relationship with Nike

    Jul 29, 2013, 5:47 PM EDT

    Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame 2013 Class Announcement

    Nike and USA Basketball are intertwined. They exert some influence — particularly over players we need on Team USA if we are serious about winning — and while some would argue too much control it is a reality. So when Jerry Colangelo was given carte blanche as USA Basketball President to fix what was wrong…

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally).

  24. Report: Chris Paul leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    The reason that USA Basketball held a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week that featured 28 current and rising NBA stars (and a couple from the college ranks) is due to the fact that there’s plenty of uncertainty as to who will return to the team to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. Program…

  25. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…
