- Derrick Rose not ruling out a postseason return December 5, 2013Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose isn’t ruling out a return for the playoffs. “If I’m healthy and the situation is right I’m going to be back playing,” Rose said Thursday during a press conference, his first public comments since tearing the meniscus in high right knee on Nov. 23. “If I’m healthy and my meniscus is fully healed of course I’ll be out there playing, but if it’s something totally different and the outcome is not how I would want it to be, there’s no need.” Rose is out for the season after he underwent surgery on the meniscus on Nov. 25. Rose has no doubts that he will return to a high-level and will be the franchise cornerstone when he returns. “You can be a fool if you want to. Dead serious. I know I’m going to be alright. I believe that I’m a special player.” The post Derrick Rose not ruling out a postseason return appeared first on Sports Glory.
- Did DeMarcus Cousins make joke at Derrick Rose's expense? December 5, 2013While discussing his ankle injury, DeMarcus Cousins made a joke at the expense of Derrick Rose. Unfortunately the Internet lost its sense of humor.
- DeMarcus Cousins Takes Shot at Derrick Rose, Jokes About Getting His Own ‘Comeback Commercial’ December 4, 2013Bulls fans aren’t the only ones who have noticed Derrick Rose took a while to get back from his ACL injury and that now he’s injured again. DeMarcus Cousins shared his feelings in a backhanded way Tuesday night when asked about his own injured ankle, which he hurt during that night’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Asked DeMarcus Cousins about playing Friday, he joked "probably not, think I'll be out rest of the season & I can get a comeback commercial"— Sean Cunningham (@News10Sean) December 04, 2013 Rose tore his ACL in the 2012 playoffs, and that summer, he was the subject of a commercial heralding his comeback by his shoe company, adidas. Rose never actually made that comeback, though. While he was said to be healthy enough to play as the 2012-2013 season wrapped up, he chose to rest until he was fully recovered despite his team fighting through the playoffs. This year, when he finally did take the court again, he played just 10 games before injuring his oth...
- Derrick Rose: Why the whole year? December 4, 2013CHICAGO BULLS BASKETBALL - Derrick Rose has yet again been ruled out for the entire season. There is a little controversy over this, more over the timetable he will be out from the injury he sustained. Derrick Rose Recovery Timeline Why does a torn meniscus lead to a season ending injury? [RELATED: Derrick Rose Tears Right Meniscus] If Derrick Rose actually sits out all year from a torn meniscus he is a damn coward. Ron Artest or Metta World Peace tore his meniscus and was able to play basketball a week later. My cousin had meniscus surgery back in the middle of October and he is running like a cheetah today. It does suck that someone so talented has to deal with these injuries, but in the NBA and in all professional sports for that matter it’s “what have you done for me lately?” mentality; D.Rose hasn’t done anything in a few years now. Anyone can provide any stats they wish, but the fact of the matter is D.Rose never took the Bulls to the promise land. He never even made it to the...
- Doctor Says There’s a Chance Derrick Rose’s Meniscus Won’t Heal 100% December 3, 2013Derrick Rose has had such bad luck lately, you don’t want to jinx him even further, but doctors say it isn’t a done deal that he will come back 100% after his torn Meniscus surgery. Here is the breakdown from Dr. Derek Ochiai, an orthopedic surgeon at the Nirschl Orthopaedic Center in Arlington, Va. courtesy of the Sporting News. “It might not heal,” Ochiai said. “The success rate for meniscal tears is not close to 100 percent. If you follow the protocol and limit range of motion, and you brace appropriately, use crutches appropriately, all those things, it is still about an 80 percent chance it heals, maybe 85 percent. If it doesn’t, he has to either do a re-repair or take out the torn part.” “If you do the repair, sew it back, you have to be much more careful,” Dr. Ochiai said. “You have to get that meniscal cartilage to heal, and we know that the meniscus is not robust in its healing. It takes a lot of time for it to heal. … From a medical standpoint, yes, he could come back quic...

- Can’t Boo LeBron Now: Last-Second Victory Leads Miami Heat to NBA Finals May 27, 2011Wow. Powered by a furious 18-3 comeback run down the stretch, the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls last night, 83-80, to clinch the Eastern conference title in five games. The Heat will now square off against the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals; Game 1 is on May 31. Both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were cold entering the fourth quarter. Wade’s shoulder seemed to be bothering him; by midway through the third quarter, he had committed 9 turnovers. With Chicago holding a comfortable 12-point lead, 76-64, with just under four minutes left, the Heat would have to close the series in Game 6, back in Miami. (VIDEO: LeBron James: Making the Shot) Or so we all thought. Down ten, 77-67, with 2:36 left, Wade hit a layup. James sank a deep three. A Derrick Rose twisting shot in the lane put the Bulls back up by seven points, 79-72, but then Wade hit a three, and was fouled by Rose. Four-point play. Rose forced a shot in the lane and missed: James grabbed the rebound, dribbled up the floor, and nailed another three to tie it, at 79, with about a minute left. The fans fell silent, but you could hear their minds screaming. Oh my God, what just happened? At this point, the Bulls were too scarred to recover. James knocked a Rose pass into the air, and grabbed the steal. What more could James possibly do? Oh yeah, win the game: James took a hard dribble to his left, and shot a jumper from the top of the key. Bang. The Heat had the lead, and after Rose missed a potential game-tying free throw, Miami had a trip to the Finals. Miami beat Dallas in the 2006 Finals, and it would be hard to bet against the team here. But we can save the Finals chalk-talk for later. Over the next few days, you just have to admire the Heat. And no matter what you think of LeBron and his decisions, you have to appreciate hisSean Gregory
- Bulls Player Joakim Noah Yells a Gay Slur May 23, 2011On Sunday night, the TNT cameras caught Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah exchanging words with someone — presumably a Miami Heat fan — while he was sitting on the bench, during the first quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Noah appeared to bark a profanity, then a homophobic slur. Check out the evidence above. Here’s a slowed-down version: (MORE: Kareem and His Hook Shot Deserve a Statue) The clip looked pretty damning. After the game, which Miami won, 95-86, Noah admitted to saying the foul words. “I apologize,” he told reporters. “The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I responded. I said some things that I shouldn’t have said. I was frustrated and I didn’t mean any disrespect to anybody.” Noah will receive a hefty fine. He should probably be docked extra money for stupidity. In April, the cameras caught Kobe Bryant barking the same word at an official, and fined him $100,000. The NBA takes the issue of anti-gay language seriously. Even before the Bryant incident, the league filmed a public service announcement, featuring Grant Hill and Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns, warning about the dangers of homophobic speech. And early last week, Suns president and CEO Rick Welts came out of the closet, a move that was taken as a hopeful sign that the anti-gay vibe that has pervaded sports for years was finally fading. Guess Noah didn’t get the message. (VIDEO: Suns CEO Rick Welts Announces He’s Gay)Sean Gregory
- Watch: Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem Dunks Twice on the Bulls May 19, 2011NewsFeed has been watching the saga of the Miami Heat since LeBron James so publicly announced that he, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would be joining forces to form a superteam. We just didn’t believe it would be a superteam. But they’re in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, folks, and they’re silencing people who didn’t have kind things to say about them last summer. One example is the two rolling dunks by the Heat’s Udonis Haslem last night at the expense of the Chicago Bulls’ Derek Rose and Keith Bogans. And not to mention, LeBron James scored 29 points and Miami took game 2 in the series…yadda, yadda, yadda. Just watch the awesome dunks.Madison Gray
- LeBron to Chicago. Or New York. Or Miami. Let the NBA’s Free Agent Frenzy Begin! July 1, 2010At 12:01 a.m this morning, the biggest free-agent season in sports history began, guaranteeing that the NBA landscape will be torn apart and rearranged. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh and a collection of other stars, no longer under contract, can be wooed by teams like the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, and other franchises with the salary cap flexibility to spend millions. The ringleader of this bunch is James, the self-proclaimed “king.” Even before the clock struck 12, reports indicated that teams were preparing to move in as early as 12:01, filing into his hometown of Akron, pitching James on their grand plans to deliver him his first championship. The New Jersey Nets, Bulls, Knicks, Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers, his team for the last seven years, are scheduled to meet with James. (See a video of LeBron in action.) So get ready for All-Pro levels of misdirection and misinformation. The sports media is already covering this story as if it were a presidential election, and every NBA “insider” worth his salt will anonymously feed reporters the latest rumors, which will be tweeted in an endless stream of speculation. Already, we’ve heard that LeBron to Chicago is a “done deal,” though that would be pretty difficult to pull off since radio host Stephen A. Smith tweeted that “LeBron James is heading to S. Beach — with Chris Bosh — to team with Dwayne Wade and Pat Riley.” The Knicks are really focusing on Hawks free agent Joe Johnson, since they think he’s a better player than LeBron; but wait, one Knicks exec says “we still think we’re in” the LeBron sweepstakes. Exclusive: by this time next week, you’ll be sick of all the talk, and begging these guys to just pick a team, any team, and play ball.Sean Gregory
