    Awesome news for Bulls fans the only question is what percent DRose are you getting? If it's close to 100% then the Bulls are suddenly a contender again.

    Even if he's 50%, he'd help. They don't have the depth they've had in recent years and while Kirk and DJ have been adequate/mild surprises, they're still not great players, or even close to it.

    We're talking about perhaps the worst offense in the league. It's worth a gamble...assuming they don't actually think it's a gamble health-wise.

    Even if he returns, they should still run that offence through Noah. It's working wonders.

    The way Noah is leading that team, now you throw Rose in there, and man, anything can happen.

    You guys are tripping if you think throw Rose into the fire for game 1 after missing the whole season will be a plus for Chicago. It takes time to acclimate that type of guy back into your lineup, especially since they have been playing without anyone who even comes close to replicating his style of play and usage when he's on the court. You don't have that time in the playoffs. My money is on Chicago losing round 1 if they bring Rose back, they will win round 1 without him.

    This is not saying they are a better team overall without Rose, but they won't be for a period after bringing him back.
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation that’s critical. He’s one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.”

    Good news if true. I don't think he'll have a huge impact on how the east plays out. But if he's healthy and plays well, then maybe that's all Carmelo Anthony needs to leave NYC

    He won't have an impact, as a matter of fact it would be rushing it. He would play like 15 mins a game, it would be bitter sweet.

    Might actually hurt the Bulls more then help. They play good team ball on both sides of the ball right now. Then your going to plug a guy in who hasnt played in two years and who looked terrible when he first came back at the beginning of the season. His game is built with the ball in his hands and he will be nowhere near ready for that in the playoffs.

    If his first game is in the playoffs then it going to hurt them. If rose had a couple games in before the playoffs start then yeah I'm all for that

    Rose has played a handful of games in two years. If he plays, hes going to come off the bench and plat like 15-20 mpg. He's not going to be much of a factor
