i just dont understand how him and shump got injured the same day, and rose, whos the btter athlete is over a month and a half behind???? I realize everybodys recovery is different but i strongly feel like they WANT this to be a drama fest. dude go in and play a couple minutes, see how it feels....u cant walk until u crawl, but dude just layin down......i wonder if adidas has anything to do with this because of the contract they gave him....i dont know anymore but the **** is getting old. quit bein a pussygirl and play already, damn.

my guess is the bulls want fans to renew on season tickets and if rose is playing they will get more renewals. Thats how jerry thinks.

That plus it being said that the doctors have cleared rose to play kind of puts the pressure on rose to return. Does anyone think the bulls FO is pressuring rose to return asap?

I hope he does play, he's such a great player and I love seeing the best players play. I'm sure the fans in the stands feel that way too especially since he was medically cleared to play by the docs.

Sounds like he will make his debut then, which he should.

Its been awhile since we've seen Rose...he's one of my favorite entertaining guards too watch. Kinda crazy though with what happened to Granger and all. Coming back, and then being Out. That has to be a major concern for every party in this decision. I hope he plays tomorrow, and the Lakers can't guard him. Change up their game plan, and return!


It's not like they are gonna ask him to play Deng like minutes.

I feel you on that, just ease him in slowly.

Rose needs to accept the fact that he won't be that elite player right away . Part of rehabbing is playing actual games . Time for waiting is over he needs to get pushed and that's what's happening . 10 months as of next week since the injury . I love rose that's my guy but he has to man up .

You guys can say he has to man up all you want but if he isn't there mentally it still isn't going to be the same player. If he does play it will be a welcomed sight.

You have the play its part of rehabbing that's part of the mental . He's too focused on wanting to comeback like he once was but he won't get there unless he plays . He is worried about people saying he's playing bad but that's part of coming back into game shape . Rubio did it and So did Gordon , both playing better after 20 games. Rose needs to get some reps under him Idc if its 15 mins as long as he's getting true game action.

I wouldn't show up to practice either if I was Drose, I mean who wants to guard Kobe on your first game back with Dwight Howard waiting in the paint?

Yup, and the mental thing is very, very hard to get past. He's already a month or more longer than he should have been back. It's not looking good. If he's this scared, he may never get back to MVP form.

It's not a good sign that he doesn't think he is ready to play but shut up with the he's a ***** bull ****. I bet even with a torn ACL he would score 100 on anyone here. Its a tough thing to go back after a serious injury, he will play when he is ready and the front office of the bulls shouldn't push him because he is the only chance the bulls have to get to a championship in the next 10+ years. Also laker fans be careful with what you are saying rose might come on psd and see your posts and dunk on Kobe, Nash and Dwight :p

03-10-2013, 12:21 AM
Actually every source that I've read has said there is no pressure from the team, coaching staff or management for him to return they all say when he's ready he'll play and they will wait for that time.

I doubt he plays tomorrow I think it will be more likely on the 17th vs the Nuggets because it will be in Chicago and it gives him a week more of practice and time to get mentally ready.

There were also rumors of him returning for the Philly game like two weeks ago and those were false. I doubt he plays against the lakers. Him missing practice due to dentist appointment also takes time from getting ready to play.

He shouldn't take any risk and he shouldn't decide to come back too early. He's been off for too long, he's still young and he's got a couple more years to go. So he'd better take care.

Lol he's also locked down múltiple players down the stretch in the 4th Q as well. Even ill admit I had never seen Kobe get worked in the post as much as he got worked by Andre miller. It was the 2nd of a back to back though and he was tired.

If rosé plays it will be that much harder to beat them. The lakers must focus and get off to a good start because they won't be coming back from a 10+ point deficit in the 45"th quarter against a very good defensive team. I have a feeling both Kobe and Howard will have good games.
Kobe continues his greatness ill say 44-10-11 going for a triple double Howard with 22-15-4
Lakers win a close one 112-107

I don't think he should the bulls left it up to him & he hasn't missed a step or had any kind of set backs, if he feels his body isn't ready yet then that's his choice. I think he'll be back in 2 weeks. I can't wait for him to play again but I can wait

BULLSFAN0810
03-10-2013, 01:47 PM
maybe he sees his body as ready but he feel mentally still injured as in ,he doesnt feel the leg(s) isnt as strong, or he needs to test it out more to take his mind off of landing and contact which can make you land awkwardly,and he can only do this over time. i can understand him. the worse thing is to hurt yourself,but what even more worse..... reinjuring yourself : and it can get worse...injure yourself and rushing rehab only to re injure yourself spells out short nba life span or losing key skills.so im with Rose,sit get mentally stronger, its a yr recovery,and a year mentally to recover,and its only ten months thus far.

It has to do with the severity of the injury and a players ability to bounce back. Rose is much more explosive than Shumpert so when he's playing he puts a lot of pressure on his knees.
