It’s been over a year since we began following Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose’s dramatic road to recovery. On Sunday, Rose put any lingering doubts to rest about his long anticipated return next season. THANK GOODNESS. After the whirlwind of “Rose Returning” rumors during the playoffs, I don’t think our Bulls-loving hearts could take anymore disappointment. It’s time to dust off your DRose jerseys and get ready to watch our favorite Chicago Bull make his triumphant comeback.
Rose who is currently touring Europe to promote his Adidas clothing and shoe line told the media in Spain, “I should be able to play in the first game of the season,” according to HoopsHype.com. “I know I’m anxious right now to play. My health is everything right now, it’s 100 percent. But right now, the first game … I will definitely be playing it.” Rose also gave a shout-out to coach Tom Thibodeau for his constant support throughout last season as well as working with him so much this off-season.
The bad news, Rose’s big debut is most likely going to be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the Bulls’ preseason game against the Washington Wizards (he hinted to it on his website). The Bulls are one of a few teams handpicked by NBA Commissioner David Stern to represent the NBA in a foreign market.
Although we’d prefer DRose make his comeback on the hardwood floors of the United Center, we’re ecstatic that the former MVP is finally truly returning to the court.
