While I don't see why he should come back, I'm more than happy to have him back. I severely doubt their is any further risk of injury as opposed to coming back next year.

Alex Kennedy tweeted it out so it's news worthy. Him suiting up is news worthy. This is the NBA forum and Rose suiting up for the first time in a year is most def threat worthy.

If he comes back it has to be because we have a shot to beat miami. I would say game 3 as well because then the series is either tied or Chicago up. I wouldn't come back if Miami is up in the series already. So game 3 makes the most sense.

I think the worse thing would be to worry about how he will gel with everyone else, but it would be kind of crazy to see him and Nate back there. Also the crowed would go pretty darn crazy.

He plays with them every day in practice. The chemistry is still there IMO.

The main concern is how he himself will return, but I think if he can give 10-20 minutes of good offense and elite defense (like he's capable of), I don't know how Miami could adjust. Especially with him and Nate finishing games.

Playing in practice and in a game is a lot different IMO. I mean thats why a lot of people say "game shape" and how it could take a few weeks or so. I am not saying this will be a problem, but who knows.

But being better has nothing to do with being healthy or not. You make it sound as if Shumpert healed quicker because he is not as good as Derrick rose. What does that have to do with anything? Both are professional athletes and athletic freaks of nature.
Comparing two young NBA guards who got injured the same day and had the same surgery is really not a stretch. You seem insulted that Shumpert is mentioned in the same sentence even though Rose being better was never challenged.

Being better means that he can likely be better quicker upon his return, especially since he has been out longer with more rest and time to work on his game. It absolutely is a stretch to think he will return the same way Iman did when you compare those things.

I'm not insulted. I'm just tired of people comparing the situations when they aren't the same. That's literally it.

If he plays it will be a great emotional boost for the Bulls. The crowd would go nuts and that could really effect Miami. The morale of this team would receive a major boost. If he comes back he will certainly get the Calls from the refs and Miami could be in trouble to some degree. I'm expecting an off game if he comes back but still effective, just running the offense and getting guys involved like boozer would be major. And if he comes back in attack mode and looking like his MVP form, then the series could tilt.

Also, with that being said, the worst thing rose could do is suit up and not play. That will truly hurt his image and it would be hard to recover. IMO, in uniform but not playing would make him look scared. If he suits he must play even if its just a minute or two

Cubby
05-07-2013, 10:30 PM
Because he hasn't played in over a year.

He has still been practicing fully for months now, so he's probably not going to come back and be a non factor when he's been working on his game over that span. I just don't see it being an issue and if his team has a chance to win it, why wouldn't he try and assist a banged up team?

Cubby
05-07-2013, 10:31 PM

Yeah, but that's mainly used for game shape and being able to sustain play over the course of a game. He can still play 10-25 minutes effectively and provide a boost in a return game after practicing and working for hours every day.

I think he should be playing, I just don't think he will. Not after sitting out a year and coming back to face miami.

Also, practice is not real game situations. Even players say that all the time.

PLus i hate to say it but miami is going to try and get real physical with him, maybe even take some shots at him, but any team would do that.

Yep, i still think even the most rigiorous practices cant prepare a player for real game. When udonis sets a hard screen on him(are guys in practice setting hard screens on him? i dont know what happens in a bulls practice) or someone fouls him hard on purpos, thats not something the rose experiences in practice and at this stage its more mental than physical with him.

Like i said, i hope he does play but i dont think he will. IF he suits up he is playing for sure tho.

Yeah, we do. He fully tore his ACL and has now approached the 12 month mark. The recovery period is 8-12 months or something like that, so I think he's fully healthy. Even he himself has admitted that his body isn't the issue.

Rose:

Two minor meniscus tears: a medial meniscus tear which was fixed and did not require any removal of meniscal tissue and a slight outer meniscus tear which was termed irrelevant.

shump also tore his lateral meniscus

Look how long it took shumpert to get back into the "groove tho". Not saying rose cant come back and put up 20/10/5. but i can see him doing more harm than good initially, and that initial period might be a few games.

How many guys take a year off and initially excel when they return? Thats all im saying.

Their skill level has nothing to do with it. Each player has their own level of play and that is what they try and get back to. Shumpert is younger so on top of getting back he also was improving.

Listen, i hope he returns, but I don't quite see the point if he has been out this long.

He can still play at a good level. It's not like he hasn't shot a ball in a year. He's been playing and practicing so his game is still there.

Rose is 24. He was improving too so the ages really are irrelevant.

I disagree. Even Rose for 10-25 minutes could greatly tilt the series the Bulls' way after we stole game 1.

Seriously, just having the guy on the court makes all the difference. The guy should do everything but drive it hard to the rim if he's worried about getting hurt. Play point and take the occasional jumper.

For what its worth, Rose has been reported as the best player in Bull's practices for a while now.

As long as he eases his role in, he'll be fine. We don't need him to come in and be superman like we used to, we got other players who can score and get to the rim now. He just needs to facilitate, play defense, and make shots IF he comes back soon.

Don't get it twisted and so caught up in Game 1. Miami could have just been rusty. I tend to believe we need rose to beat Miami. I highly doubt we can beat them without him so if he comes back u take it and run with it. Chemistry be damned, don't let game 1 mislead you.

He missed all that time because he was not healthy....think big picture and tell him to stay home. He won't be in game shape, his timing and rhythm will be off, and you don't know mentally how he will respond, and its not worth the risk.

He will. He's seeing that his team is legit and can compete. So he will come back game 3 or game 4. Just his presence on the court could inspire the team even more and get them a win. You never know.

Really wish everyone would just stop talking about Rose. They're playing equally as good without him, and he's incredibly over-rated.
how exactly is he overrated?

the guy basically carried a bulls team the past few seasons with very limited offensive options on his team. he is the best pg in the nba when healthy, he already has an mvp, and hes only 24.

look at the bulls team the last 2 seasons. 2010-2011, 62 wins. last season in a 66 game season, 50 wins, would have most likely gotten 60 again if not for lockout. he outplays every elite pg head to head.

if u want to point to the bulls success without him, well aside from the fact they went from 62 wins 2 years ago to 45 this year, even in the playoffs, this team is basically needing heroic efforts from guys who are playing well beyond their ability.

i love nate, great spark off bench, but lets be real hes playing out of his mind. this team right now is winning not with talent but with heart and toughness.

if u r going to say they dont need rose, might as well say they dont need deng and hinrich, because they have won the past 2 games without them, so who needs them, lol.

rose if anything is underrated, the amount of disrespect the guy gets is incredible. everyone just hands chris paul the best pg in nba title, like derrick rose does not exist. next year will be fun when he is healthy again so he can show the nba who the real best pg is.

Don't see how you can say that. Miami was very successful in the first half against the Bulls trapping the pg at half court and not having no other ball handlers come get it or get out the trap themselves. I don't believe that would have been a issue with Derrick on the court who knows how and has the speed to break the traps, in which we seen Nate start doing in the second half. Truthfully I don't think it would be something you would want if Miami is going to continue to play their defense the way they have.

He plays with them every day in practice. The chemistry is still there IMO.

The main concern is how he himself will return, but I think if he can give 10-20 minutes of good offense and elite defense (like he's capable of), I don't know how Miami could adjust. Especially with him and Nate finishing games.

They haven't scrimaged since sometime in March

He's getting suited up but I don't think anyone has said that he's going to get game time?

That decision will come from Thibbs but if we look at what happend to Rip Hamilton, then I don't think Rose plays this season.

Hamilton has been hurt and banged up most of the season but has been healthy and ready to go since the end of the regular season. But, instead of playing him, Thibbs didn't. I think it was because he didn't want to throw off the team's chemistry going into the playoffs.

Thibbs is so consistent so I don't think Rose gets any playing time, even if he suits up and raises his hand that he's ready to go.

I think Rose was ready but wasn't mentally ready along with in NBA shape and now he sees Nate and the opportunity to take out imho a more than beatable Heat team this year, compared to last year. Last years team was expensive but had no heart. This years team bench, is really deep and had heart/competitiveness which is the Heats weakness.

Its the 1990's, the Flyers are rolling through everyone in the playoffs, looking unbeatable and destinied for the cup. Eric Lindros has been out for months...Flyers up 3 games to none against the Devils and the Captain Eric Lindros comes back...fans excited it looks like they are ready to be even greater, they lose the next 4 games.

Whenever the star comes back after missing awhile it disrupts things, there are many examples of it failing and I don't know of 1 that it worked.

Rose is not in game shape, the team is used to playing without him, they just proved they can beat the defending champs, you don't disrupt any of that. Psychologically history in all sports shows it back fires. Let the man be no doubt about it 100% at training camp.

Not saying Rose coming back will immediately make him better, but the MAIN reason the heat could contain rose was because not only did they put LeBron on Derrick, but KEITH BOGANS was our starting 2 guard. They helped off Bogans and doubled Derrick and made it very hard for him to find open teammates and get open shots. Not to mention Carlos Boozer disappeared that series as well, and I definitely could be wrong but I think Noah might have been playing hurt? My point is, now Rose would have Jimmy, Nate, Marco, Luol, Carlos, and Joakim to help him out and it will be increasingly difficult to play Rose the same way that they did in 2011.

This team we actually have with Marco, Nate, Jimmy is actually a lot better than the team we had in 11. Obviously our biggest loss was Asik.

You think he regained his muscle memory in the past 3 days or did God tell him 'its your time'?

If he was scared to play vs the Nets, he'll be scared to play now. You don't 'mentally heal' overnight.

Check my sig, thats what Rose should be doing right now. When Shump was asked about his ACL he said 'I would have forgot I tore my ACL if you guys didn't keep bringing it up'.....the only way you get mentally comfortable is by playing live action and getting that repitition back, you can't simulate that ****. Your not going to get in-game muscle memory in practice. Rose should have sacked up a month ago, now is not the time. Especially with the physicality in this series.

For those that are using game 2 as a barometer, remember the bulls were blown out the same way in game 1 vs the nets. This is the playoffs, where momentum shifts from game to game. Currently, the Bulls are in the driver's seat heading home.

You're comparing the Heat to the Nets? Good one...

He didn't compare the nets to the heat one bit, get off your high horse, all he said was the bulls got blown out game 1 and came back strong. Some Heat fans are just brutal on here.

But he didnt see it that way of course, he used a classic homer response.

Bulls always bounce back after a really bad game . That's been the cycle with them , especially if Deng , Kirk and Rose comes back they will be hyped especially at home .

But as non fans of the Heat you see it another way. Your looking at it as the bulls came back strong. We look at it as it was Brooklyn. Big difference as far as the bulls abality to come back strong against the Heat as opposed to the nets. Not saying they won't play better but using a previous series as a barometer (expecily since it was Brooklyn) is foolish to say the least

Bulls dont need them to win game 3 or 4. They need them for game 5. Im not sure if Kirk will return this series though, his calf problem isnt getting any better. But w/Deng they have the quality depth they need to contend.

Not sure what your asking? As a knowledgable Heat fan I can tell you we lost game 1 because we played like the champs who couldn't be stopped. Yesterday you saw us get into the fight (a Lebron quote I might add) as far as the rest of the series you'll see a completely different Heat team who probably won't lose another game to the bulls. There to hurt and when Miami steps on the gas ( see previous years if you like using history as a barometer) they won't lose to an inferior team.

Bulls weren't expected to steal one in miami, especially the first one. They were expected to get their win(s) at home. They're an extremely disciplined and rugged team, I dont see any way they lose game 3. Thibs will adjust accordingly.

Absolutely. At the sound of the horn, you have to immediately post the following as your sig:

I think Heat fans will be excited to see Rose back...Heat won't have to keep playing down to competition and will beat the silly out of Chi town. You're acting like Rose was that great before he got injured...he probably lost 2 steps already.

Rose will need atleast 5 games to get in game shape and by then the series will be over.
