Derrick Rose is confident that the Bulls will qualify for the playoffs.

Chicago enters Tuesday's action a game behind Toronto for the final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference.

The Bulls have nine games left in the regular season.

"We're still going to make it," Rose told ESPNChicago.com on Tuesday. "You can't think about stuff like [not making the playoffs].

"In my mind, we'll be making the eighth spot. We'll be playing LeBron [James] -- playing Cleveland. The closer we get, the [more] I'm going to think that. We can't walk around acting like we're not going to make it, because that's when things turn on you. Our biggest goal is to make the playoffs, and we're going to make it."

However it turns out, kudos to Rose for showing that kind of attitude. It warms my black, dried out husk of a heart to see good young players exhibit the "never say die" mentality.

Yeah. No one should be mad. You want him to say that they won't make it? You want him to act like his team has given up?

No. If you're a professional NBA player, on a team a game out...you better ****ing think you'll make the playoffs.

I can't fault Rose for showing confidence in his team but I still think the Raptors make the playoffs.. they can't possibly be so bad that they'd fall behind a team that's weakened by injury, weakened by roster restructuring for FA and has more games against teams over .500.

Draco

Quite possibly the most unimportant guarantee in sports history.

it should be in the bulls forum.. it's local media Q&A (ESPN Chicago )and I'm sure he's not the only player to make guarantees for his fan base.

Strong words, but we'll see if it is like a Dwight Howard-type guarantee (down 3-2, he guaranteed they'd beat Boston, despite the Celts being 32-0 after leading 3-2 in the past) or it is a Mo Williams-type guarantee (we all know what happened there).

How can you suck but be a #3 seed? Im a little confused. and FYI in 2 years the Celtics have as much cap room as the Bulls do this year. They will be able to sign whoever the big name FA is if they choose to (hopefully Melo). And I have been a fan of the Celtics through thick and thin. Ive seen some terrible teams from nervous pervous to dino radja to eric montross to the rick pitino days. Im not like you d^ckriding rose bull fans.

Because you should be a 1 seed. And not sure what FA's will be left come summer of 2012. Have fun with a FA class that will be Bibby, Hinrich, VC, Jamison, Kidd, Terry, Chauncey, Duncan. Maybe you can sign some more guys who will need to retire so your team in 2012 can look the same as next season.

But on topic, Rose won't look anymore stupid if we don't make the playoffs than if he had answered those questions in a different way.

Ballsy. It's hard to say that as a single player on a team. It's great though as it shows he's the leader and wants to win.

As a Raptor fan, all I can say is that the Bulls better come out to play when it comes down to the wire @ the ACC in April for one of the final games of the season. We'll be ready to win that one at home. I guarantee :up:

I agree with this post completely. He never used the word guarantee so I think it's a little bit of a stretch. He just said they would make it and the writer could get away with that little leap of journalism. Sounds like he has exactly the right mindset and even though I basically despise the Bulls... :laugh: he did just make that 8th spot race more interesting. If they do go like 6-3 (9 games left right?) and slide in that would shoot him up in my estimation, regardless of their results vs. the Cavs.

Derrick Rose is confident that the Bulls will qualify for the playoffs.

Chicago enters Tuesday's action a game behind Toronto for the final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference.

The Bulls have nine games left in the regular season.

"We're still going to make it," Rose told ESPNChicago.com on Tuesday. "You can't think about stuff like [not making the playoffs].

"In my mind, we'll be making the eighth spot. We'll be playing LeBron [James] -- playing Cleveland. The closer we get, the [more] I'm going to think that. We can't walk around acting like we're not going to make it, because that's when things turn on you. Our biggest goal is to make the playoffs, and we're going to make it.

In my opinion, the bolded shows that he knows that it really isn't probable that they make it, but at the same time he knows you can't have that attitude. Again, kudos for having that attitude, but I disagree.

Rose never said word "Guarantee" so why are you putting words in his mouth and MISLEADING other fans???

Rose said exactly what he was SUPPOSED to say.

You think any other player that cares about winning would have said any different???

First of all, OP has some sort of agenda against Bulls/Rose or something???

Rose never said word "Guarantee" so why are you putting words in his mouth and MISLEADING other fans???

Rose said exactly what he was SUPPOSED to say.

You think any other player that cares about winning would have said any different???

I just think that half of the people on this board DON'T EVEN READ and just blabber their hatred in here.

It almost seems like bunch of 8-9 year olds posting here.

This. And to the Raptor fans, I actually feel bad for you guys because you were suppose to have a stacked team this year and you guys are fighting for the 8th seed against an injured Bulls team....How sad is that.

raptors had 9 new faces so we didnt get to the best start and when we start playing with some chemistry bosh goes down, and its not very sad for a team that won 33 games last year im pretty happy and i knew they werent stacked

I was talking more about summer of 2012. For 2011, you have 3 guys on the payroll for 38 million (KG, Rondo, and Sheed). Still need to fill 9 spots at a minimum. Doubt you will be able to sign anyone halfway decent while still filling out your roster. Not to mention throw in this years draft picks along with next years, you will probably have 10 million at most in cap space in 2011 to sign 5+ guys. 2012 is a different story since only Rondo and your upcoming draft picks will be on the payroll.

Are some of you guys serious? The Bulls have had injuries all year.. Tyrus was out for a month, Rose was injured but was still playing the first month and then sat out when he hurt his wrist, Noah sat out a ton and even when he played he had limited mins, Deng has missed a lot of games, then we made a deadline trade in the middle of the season where we clearly lost some talent but gained cap space.. We've had our 3 best players injured at the same time and our coach is a complete dumbass!!!

The Bulls have no outside shooting, inside scoring, depth, and the SG and PF positions are embarassing...I know they had injury problems, but it's not like they'd even be a lock healthy....and if they were in they'd only get 4 games this year...

That said, next year should be a great year in Chicago...if they grab Boozer and Allen, they'd be quite formidable- contender status...

They traded that for salary relief and the teams they traded with are the ones we're in competition with for a playoff spot.. Prior to trades and injuries we were on track for the 6th or 7th spot. The priorities and luck changed. I wouldn't call Gibson's work in the PF position embarrassing.. at least he's getting noticed in a positive way this season.. not sure I'd say the same for Beasley.

there wasnt 12 seconds left on the shot clock it was less than that on the inbound and Vinny said he drew the play up for Rose to take the 3. He had to readjust his shot cuz it was going to be blocked. He was doing his part the whole game to try and keep his team in it, he did his job and ran the play that his coach put on the floor. I dont think we will make the playoffs dis year but im happy to have a player that will keep playing his heart out to lead his team to victory.

I can't really knock what Rose is saying and I'm a Raps fan. Look at some of the Raps blow outs and it's easy to imagine the Raps continued downfall. Now their new starting 5 has brought some life back to this team and maybe Hedo will stop acting like a diva....even though BC and Triano created this monster.

Anyways, the Bulls have a good young team. I like D Rose but the guy can't seem to stay healthy. He's not as bad as Deng but for a young player he always seems to be hampered by something.

Gibson maybe the steal of the draft.

And like someone else said, VDN is a horrible coach who is clueless.

excuses, excuses...

In the beginning of the year your team was healthy (Rose was obviously good enough to play so stop giving him excuses for playing horribly. He wasn't as badly injured as you Bull fans make it out to be) and played pathetic. You guys had your chances early in the season and until a couple weeks ago your team was fully healthy also so stop acting like your team has been riddled with injuries throughout the entire year and it's the only reason you didn't make the playoffs.


Now the mets last year, that's a team that was injured the whole season. That's a team that i expect their fans to whine. But the Bulls underwhelmed all of you when you picked them to be the 4th or 5th seed before the season and now you're making excuses for them because they aren't even close to being that good a team.

First of all, im not being cocky. I love my Heat, but i also know that they're pretty average and we prolly wouldn't even make it to the playoffs if this conference wasn't full like teams similar to the Bulls.

The Bulls have players in Noah, Deng, and Hinrich who without Rose, had more success than the Heat without Wade. It's not really debatable which team has it's talent spread out among more players.. easily, the Bulls. Since last off season the Bulls have continued to subtract talent to get under the cap and we're still hovering around the 8th spot.. all while, strengthening (just a little bit) our competitors' roster.

So STFU.

And we do have a stacked team. We had a stacked team. It's when Bosh got injured, we went down hill. We were great by ASG and when Bosh got injured for 10 or so games, we started losing. Now that Bosh is back, he's gonna help us to the playoffs PAST THE BULLS.

And what happened to your god, Derrick Rose?

when you take into account expectations, production and positive influence on the team yeah you can compare the two. Beasley has all the talent in the world, but plays like a dog. All Gibson does is work is *** off and has been nothing but positive for the team.

:moon: Genius, you can throw qualifiers on anything and make your player sound better. Ready? "When you exclude size, athletic ability, strength, talent, statistics, impact, productions, efficiency and IQ, Luol Deng and Lebron James are comparable, yeah".

Gibson=below average
Beasley=above

Whether or not you can grasp that is one thing, but to compare an unworthy player who is overperforming to a player who is underperforming but is still better and more efficient than more than half the league's rotation players including said overperformer is ludicrous...

But then again, Bulls fans compare Rose to Wade as well, so nothing is too outlandish for you...

Seeds 1-7 in the East are much improved w/ the emergence of the Bucks and Charlotte. A healthy Chicago team would have made for a pretty strong 1-8 East. The Bulls caught a tough break w/ Deng, Noah and Rose going down around the same time. The Raptors really lucked up in that regard and they better turn it up because Chicago is not dead in this race.

That is certainly possible, but we still have to have warm bodies to suit up.

Wade/Max Free Agent = 34 mil
Beasley/Cook/Chalmers/Anthony = 7 mil
2 Picks = 3-4 mil

I think we'd probably be left w/ 7-8 million if the cap is 54 mil or so. I think we could fit two picks in there but you never know what Riley is aiming for. If we can complete a sign and trade for our free agent then we'll still have our bird rights to resign guys like Wright/Arroyo/Haslem/Richardson.

Regardless of the outcome, he never guaranteed anything. Love how the Canadian announcers on TSN made mention of that a dozen times throughout the game.. guys, get a clue.

He answered a reporter's question.. in court terminology I guess you'd call it a leading question. Rose's answer was more a statement of confidence and a description of the frame of mind you have to be in if you want to be a winner.. paraphrasing; "you can't think about not making the playoffs"
