Derrick Rose

  1. Boston vs. Chicago: It’s a playoff preview. And it isn’t.

    Apr 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics, Game 7

    Thursday night’s much anticipated Celtics at Bulls matchup is not a playoff preview. Well, technically it can be. These two teams could meet in the Eastern Conference finals, but first they have to get there. Teams evolve during the playoffs, these teams will be different by then. More importantly, no Shaquille O’Neal for Boston tonight.…

  2. Derrick Rose thinks Bulls are ready to win it all this year

    Apr 6, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose wouldn’t be Derrick Rose without his swagger. His confidence. So it shouldn’t be a shock that when asked if the Bulls — who have yet to get out of the first round — can suddenly jump to winning to winning a title, his response was yes. From the Waddle and Silvy show on…

  3. Derrick Rose’s season inspires John Wall

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Washington Wizards

    Each year Derrick Rose has stepped on the court, he has gotten better. Each of his three seasons he has taken on more and more of the Chicago offense but his true shooting percentage has gone up each year (that’s his points per shot attempt, counting threes and fouls), his assist percentages have gone up,…

  4. Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol lead NBA fundraising effort for Japan

    Mar 25, 2011, 2:12 PM EST

    Rescue Work Continues in Japan As Nuclear Threat Looms

    Every time Derrick Rose scores this weekend, the people of Japan win. A little. Rose leads a number of NBA stars who will be donating $1,000 for every point scored to Direct Relief’s Japan Relief and Recovery Fund. That is money that goes to support the immediate health needs of people devastated by the earthquake…

  5. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  6. Tom Thibodeau’s social life is worse than yours

    Image (1) Thibodeau_presser-thumb-250x375-14397.jpg for post 2710

    As a professional blogger, I am required by law to work in my mother’s basement and never see the light of day. Even though my parents’ house has never had a basement. Still, it’s the law. But even still, my social life blows Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau’s out of the water. At least that’s what…

  7. Video: C.J. Watson does his best Derrick Rose imitation at rim

    Mar 23, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Derrick Rose has an ability to knife through the defense and find a way to get off a shot when none seems to exist that is second to none. Bulls backup point guard C.J. Watson has been watching that all season and apparently it has rubbed off a little. Take a look at this shot…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago’s offense is as awesome as the Kings defense is horrid

    Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Keith Bogans

    What you missed while getting busted for polygamy due to Facebook (damn you Zuckerberg)…. The Celtics beating up and coming from behind to beat the Knicks is our game of the night. Bulls 132, Kings 92: For a night, there were no questions about the Bulls offense. For a night it was an unstoppable force,…

  9. Bulls sign Jannero Pargo, John Lucas as insurance

    Mar 20, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls had a couple of roster spots open, so they filled them Sunday with a couple of point guards just to have some practice depth behind Derrick Rose. Veteran journeyman Jannero Pargo (who was with the Bulls last season) and John Lucas III (who has been with the Bulls on a 10-day contract…

  10. Video: Derrick Rose celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with monster jam

    Derrick Rose, Deron Williams

    I have not delved into Derrick Rose’s ancestry, but for one day at least he and the rest of the Bulls were Irish, wearing the green and everything Thursday night against the Nets. Rose decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a huge dunk off a give-and-go from the top of the key. Just watch…

    Derrick Rose 3

    Adidas has a new ad campaing, “all in.” We bring it to you to see Derrick Rose (and Katy Perry, and Beckham, and Messi, and Notre Dame football, and…). Interesting to see that Adidas realized where Rose is headed in terms of stardom. Plus, we just think it’s got a good look. The commercial. The…

  12. Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

    Mar 17, 2011, 4:12 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient. But Dwight Howard needs to be on the…

  13. Derrick Rose: Thanks for all that added pressure Mr. Jordan

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    Michael Jordan was throwing all sorts of bouquets at Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls over the weekend. Jordan said Rose was his MVP. Or when Jordan said this at the United Center over the weekend. “You guys are in store for a lot of other championships… don’t be surprised if you have six more…

  14. Jordan reflects on ’91 championship team, and sees same future for Rose’s Bulls

    Mar 13, 2011, 1:15 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 1991 championship team Saturday night. Looking back on it, you could tell Michael Jordan still wishes he was living in that time when the world was his. It’ll always be that way for Jordan, looking back on when his body enabled him to dominate every living…

  15. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

  16. Bulls owner predicts four championships for Derrick Rose

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    No pressure Derrick. It’s just that the owner of the Bulls Jerry Reinsdorf — who paragraphs before admitted he thought they might win one title with Michael Jordan back in the day — told the Chicago Sun Times you could win four. ‘‘If you don’t see something special in Derrick Rose, then you’re blind,’’ Reinsdorf…

  17. Race to MVP still has five players in the running

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Derrick Rose is not your MVP. Not yet anyway. Dwight Howard is still making his case, while LeBron James’ candidacy is limping like the Heat the last five games. But that could turn around. Right now, we don’t know who the MVP is. Which is a good thing. A real race down the stretch is…

    Dwight Howard said what a lot of people have been thinking (and was willing to go farther than we were) when he was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning (via CSN Chicago, they have the video clip where Howard talks about a range of topics). Patrick asked him who was the best team in…

  19. What does another Miami Heat loss tell us? That Chicago is good.

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer

    For many this s going to be about Miami losing again in a close game against an elite team (87-86 to the Bulls). About the Heat players crying in the locker room afterward. About how the Heat are now 1-16 this season on shots to tie or win in the final 10 seconds of the…

  20. Derrick Rose says he did pitch LeBron last summer

    Mar 2, 2011, 5:26 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    I know, I know. We’re all trying to move on forget the Summer or LeBron ever happened, just like we’re trying to forget that night we broke out the bottle of Mescal. Best if it just isn’t discussed anymore. But Derrick Rose wants to make it clear that he did, too, reach out to LeBron.…

  21. Video: Derrick Rose turns John Wall around with between legs assist

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:19 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is playing well for a rookie point guard. Derrick Rose is playing well for anyone. Monday night on a fast break Rose turned Wall around with the sick assist between his own legs to Joakim Noah for the dunk. Just teaching the rookie a couple of things (on the Bulls way to a…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When you talk contenders, Chicago wants to be mentioned

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while out doing some naked joyriding… Bulls 93, Heat 89: We won’t know until May, really, if the Chicago Bulls are contenders. If they can hang with Miami and Boston for seven games. The defense definitely can, but the ball sticks too much on offense, leaving Derrick Rose to create one-on-three (or…

  23. Chris Bosh thinks Derrick Rose should be MVP

    Feb 25, 2011, 1:33 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh better be careful or he is going to end up in LeBron James’ little black revenge book. Before the Heat took on the Bulls — and lost in large part due to Derrick Rose — Chris Bosh was asked by Bulls.com what he thought of the chances of Derrick Rose taking the MVP…

  24. Kobe MVP mission was entertaining, just like All-Star Game should be

    Feb 21, 2011, 2:08 AM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    It was obvious Kobe Bryant was going hard after the MVP three minutes into the game. That’s when, with the score tied just 6-6, Kobe got the ball in the right corner, drove baseline on Derrick Rose, the help defense was late and he went up-and-under for the kind of reverse jam he probably hasn’t…
