Derrick Rose

  1. Kobe slips from nation’s most popular athlete to No. 3

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:10 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    What does it say about American sports fans that Kobe Bryant slipped out of the top spot in a poll of America’s favorite athletes and Derek Jeter replaced him on top of the list? That’s what happened in the annual Harris Poll of the most famous athletes in America (via the Orange County Register). What…

  2. Rose “damn confident” about Bulls chances next season

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:05 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Don’t you get the feeling we’re going to be seeing variations of that Eastern Conference Finals for the next few years? Bulls vs. Heat. Miami won and they should get better role players and more comfortable with each other in the future — they will be better. Derrick Rose knows that, but he likes the…

  3. Report: Kobe, Rose, Durant to play in Philippines exhibition

    Kobe Durant AP

    While the talks have been of a barnstorming tour of China, there may be another in the Far East first. Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will be part of an exhibition game in the Philippines, according to the sports web site of TV5 in the island nation (via SLAM). The three stars will…

  4. Derrick Rose admits he wore down during playoffs

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    It seemed at times during the playoffs (and regular season) the Chicago Bulls offense was a playground style “give the ball to Derrick Rose and let’s see what he can create.” It wasn’t, there were plays and everything, but Rose is the one guy on that team who can consistently create shots for himself and…

  5. NBA players lockout tour of China has to win over government first

    Jul 4, 2011, 8:03 AM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Derrick Rose could lead a barnstorming tour of NBA players through China. So could Kobe Bryant. A few agents out there are pitching the idea of a lockout tour of China this fall and it is gaining momentum for the players. But they better check with the Chinese government first. Because while it sounds like…

  6. NBA lockout tour of China being considered by agency

    Jun 29, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    NBA players are looking to do things during the lockout other than workout and improve their Halo 3 skills. Well, some of them are, some just want to get better at Halo. Which leads to this interesting note out of the Sports Business Journal (via SLAM): Armed with its star-studded NBA client list, Wasserman Media…

  7. Mike D’Antoni says Iman Shumpert can guard Rose, Wade, or LeBron… or did he?

    Jun 25, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    Here’s a nice quote from Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni about first round pick Iman Shumpert that’s going to get misconstrued all over the place. From ESPN.com via IamaGm.com: “He has the athletic ability to guard a Derrick Rose or a Dwyane Wade or a LeBron James,” D’Antoni said Friday. via New York Knicks’ Mike D’Antoni…

  8. Maybe trading Monta Ellis is not going to be that easy

    Jun 17, 2011, 2:12 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Boston Celtics

    We’ve discussed before that with deal-making Jerry West in the house and a push for some changes in Golden State, Monta Ellis was being made available. Fourth leading scorer in the NBA, can create his own shot, bring some swagger to the offense, up your team’s tattoo quotient… not a lot of interest around the…

  9. David Stern considering handing out the MVP award later

    Jun 1, 2011, 4:57 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    When asked if the MVP award should be handed out at some point during or after the postseason at a press conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals, David Stern said “It’s an idea that should get some traction. I have no particular opinion on it one way or the other. And the worst answer…

  10. LeBron told Rose’s brother Rose is “one player away”

    May 28, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    There’s been a lot of speculation that last year when the Celtics tossed LeBron James against a wall, stole his lunch money and left him beaten and humiliated, Kevin Garnett spoke to James and reminded him of certain things about the reality of how things are when you’re trying to carry a team on your…

  11. Who is MVP? LeBron shut down Rose during series

    May 27, 2011, 3:19 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Versatility. It was the key to why Miami was able to defeat Miami. While the Bulls had offensive and defensive specialists they tried to go with — Taj Gibson or Carlos Boozer? — the Heat could leave their best guys on the floor. And mix and match. Like have LeBron James guard Derrick Rose with…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Heat make stunning comeback, reach finals

    May 27, 2011, 2:18 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    For the first 44 and a half minutes of the Miami Heat’s 83-80 victory on Thursday night, the Chicago Bulls got the exact game they wanted. LeBron James was bottled up after missing some tough jumpers early, with free throws being his only real source of offense. Dwyane Wade‘s struggles continued, and he committed nine…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Back in sweet home Chicago can Bulls extend series?

    May 26, 2011, 1:02 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In one key way, the Eastern Conference Finals have been a lot like the Western Conference Finals — it has been about the fourth quarter. Miami has turned up the defensive pressure late and the Bulls have wilted in the final stanza. In the fourth quarter of the last three games the Bulls have shot…

  14. Thursday morning one liners

    May 26, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka

    What is wrong with the Thunder’s offense in video form — no movement off the ball. That is one thing they have to change going forward. Derrick Rose recanted his PEDs comments from the other day, but that doesn’t mean the story should really go away. The idea that an NBA player may be taking designer…

  15. Thibodeau thinks Derrick Rose not getting the calls

    May 25, 2011, 12:37 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Derrick Rose has averaged 6.5 free throws a game so far in the Eastern Conference Finals, which is down just slightly from the 6.9 trips to the line he averaged during the regular season. But Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was expecting a lot more. And he’s blaming the officials. Kind of. In an “I don’t…

  16. Video: Derrick Rose just abuses rim, Joel Anthony

    May 25, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In the first half of Tuesday night’s Game 4, Derrick Rose attacked the rim as hard as he has all playoffs. Maybe all season. He was determined to break down the Heat’s defense. One result of that was one of the best dunks of the playoffs — a monster throwdown where he weaves through the…

  17. Believe it or not, LeBron knows how Rose feels

    May 25, 2011, 4:20 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    People are going to want to act like LeBron James is relishing this. That there’s a part of James who is vindictively and sadistically savoring the kid who took his trophy failing like this. But it’s not like that among athletes, and it’s not like that between LeBron James and Derrick Rose. Because some part…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Bulls bring energy but shooting betrays them

    May 25, 2011, 2:03 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    Derrick Rose was true to his word, he attacked the rim with a recklessness and aggressiveness not seen in this series. The Bulls played defense with energy and desperation not seen this series. And it was not enough — in the end they simply did not shoot the ball well enough from the outside to…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Heat complement their star power with depth, take Game 4

    May 25, 2011, 1:39 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Chicago Bulls finished with a better regular-season record than the star-studded Miami Heat for two reasons: superior depth and better play in close games. On Tuesday night, the Heat flipped the script on the Bulls, and took a commanding 3-1 series lead thanks to superior depth and late-game execution. All season long, the Bulls…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Whole lotta Rose for Bulls, but they need more

    May 24, 2011, 4:01 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Derrick Rose is going to try and make Tuesday night his signature game. He has said he plans to come out and be much more aggressive attacking the Heat’s double team. It’s not that simple, and it will not be enough for the Bulls — they need more complete team effort on both ends of…

  21. Derrick Rose vows to be more aggressive in Game 4

    May 24, 2011, 10:20 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    For three games now, Derrick Rose has come off the top of the high screen and saw a line of defenders. Sometimes it’s a trap and a traditional double team. Sometimes its more of a soft double with the next guy just rotated over ready to come — the Heat have the athletes to come…

  22. Bulls need to space floor or things not going to change

    May 23, 2011, 12:41 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Derrick Rose had no room to operate. The minuscule gaps in defenses that he contorted his way through this season have disappeared the last couple games against the Heat. There is no room. Finally Carlos Boozer stepped up and gave the Bulls 26 points and 17 boards in Game 3. But that was not enough.…

  23. Rose’s statement denying he said PEDS are problem in NBA

    May 23, 2011, 8:17 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    The note had actually been available for more than a week in ESPN The Magazine, but nobody had really noticed the controversial statement. Read into that what you want about ESPN the Magazine (even ESPN reporters did not know or follow up). But finally somebody noticed and Sunday morning news started to spread quickly —NBA…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Heat outclass the Bulls, take series lead

    May 23, 2011, 1:07 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Game 1 of the Bulls-Heat series was the kind of game the Bulls wanted to play — a physical slugfest that saw Chicago dominate the Heat by destroying them on the boards and keeping LeBron James and Dwyane Wade from being able to do too much damage. Game 2 was the kind of game that…

    Heat's James and Haslem celebrate a basket against the Bulls during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball series in Miami

    LeBron James didn’t really get going as a scorer (holding him to 22 points is keeping them in check). Same with Dwyane Wade who had just 17 points. The Bulls grabbed 32.5 percent of their missed shots for offensive rebounds. The Bulls limited the Heat’s transition points. Carlos Boozer put up 26 points with 17…
