Derrick Rose Will Not Help Recruit Carmelo Anthony

rose1
Chicago Bulls former all star and former league MVP Derrick Rose will not recruit Carmelo Anthony or any star that is a free agent come Tuesday July 1.
Seems that Derrick is quite fine in the role of player and only that, as he says “it’s not his job” to recruit players to the Bulls.

“My thing is if they want to come, they can come,” Rose said.”I love Melo’s game,” Rose said. “He’s a great player. Takes the game serious. He’s consistent. He shoots the ball great. I love his heart.
“I can play with anybody, no matter who it is. I believe I can play with anyone if they step on the court with me.”

I’m not sure what to take from this. Does Rose have a point? Should he leave that totally up to management? Or should he at least be willing to talk to potential free agents interested in coming to Chicago? Just earlier this season, we heard of his team mate Joakim Noah pitching Carmelo at the All Star game.

Whichever you think right, Rose is definitely a different type of cat. One who marches to the beat of his own drum for sure.

James returning to Cleveland is a great myth

The summer of 2014.
Never has a summer of free agency in the NBA been so highly anticipated since 2010, and the main reason it is so anticipated is because of the same characters who made the summer of 2010 so crazy.

Dwyane Wade.

Chris Bosh.

and of course him. Lebron James. You all remember this right?

The words “take my talents to South Beach” will forever live on in the annals of sports history.
But even though everyone will take that quote and will run with it forever, it was the words that he uttered after, that really hit home and make the most sense now. Yes especially now, when everyone and their moms wants to talk about the Summer of 2014, and if Lebron James will bolt from the team he sacrificed and gave up so much to come and play for.

What sacrifices you ask? We can get into that later.

But it’s these words that should shut up everyone who dares to question rather if Lebron James will decide to come back to the Miami Heat after he opts out (for more money) next year.

I feel like this…this is gonna give me the best opportunity to, to win, and to win for multiple years. Um, and not only just to win in the regular season or just to win 5 games in a row or 3 games in a row. Um, I want to be able to win championships and I feel like I can compete down there

King James

There. That right there ladies and gentlemen, is why the talk and speculation should end about Lebron bolting for anywhere next year. Especially the talk about him going back to Cleveland.
Why must we do this to ourselves? I ask my brothers and sisters in the media is there not enough to talk about?

The Heat won a 2nd consecutive championship in their third try. The team, largely in tact will return for another run at it this year. Ray. Mario. Even the Birdman is coming back. Sure the Nets got better, on paper. Yes Derrick Rose is coming back (we think). And the Pacers will be hungrier than ever.
The competition will be stiff. Maybe that’s why folks are already foaming at the mouth and fingertips to talk and write about Lebron heading somewhere else next year.

Ok so the Lakers will have a lot of cap space. Do you think Lebron watches how Dwight Howard jetted off to Houston, because of a difference of, well everything with the Lakers and says to himself “oooh yeah I want some of that drama”?

Word is Carmelo may leave New York. Yeah right. And Lebron will just jump right in his place right? Ha.
Just because Carmelo’s wife LaLa has a budding career in LA, doesn’t mean he’s willing to give up the bright lights of Madison Square Garden for the silicone and weave of Los Angeles (Clippers or Lakers).

And then there’s Cleveland. Smh (that means “shaking my head”). Lebron James going back to Cleveland is like the guy who leaves his longterm girlfriend for another chick who gives and spoils him with everything. And then one day he decides to go back to that longterm girlfriend, just because he’s tired of being spoiled. Yeah…that happens everyday (<----sarcasm)

Here's what Cleveland has to offer Lebron this time around: Mike Brown as Coach, a broke down Andrew Bynum, a fragile Kyrie Irving, along with Anderson Varejao, Tyler Zeller, Alonzo Gee, rookie No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett, free agent pickup Jarrett Jack ( who was very vocal about the way Lebron left Cleveland and the partnering of the super stars in South Beach), Tristan Thompson, and Dion Waters.

Is that more enticing than winning more rings in Miami?

We all must prepare ourselves for this craziness starting in October and all the way through June.
God forbid if the Heat don't win a championship. The noise will get so loud that dogs would start howling.

Nevertheless it has already started, and will only continue to get louder through the season. And I've got to do all I can to keep the noise away from me.
Lebron will not go back to Cleveland or anywhere for that matter folks. Not right now. Try again in about 5-8 years.

Oh Derrick, Oh Derrick, please come out to play?!

The Chicago Bulls find themselves in a must win game 7, on the road in Brooklyn to try and continue in these NBA Playoffs. With a team that is breaking down physically and who is need of a spark off the bench, there is one thing that is for sure about this team as they face elimination. Derrick Rose is healthy enough to play.

Let’s take a look at the Bulls as they stand today.

Plantar_Fasciitis1Joakim Noah has plantar fasciitis, which is described as is a painful inflammatory process of the plantar fascia, the connective tissue on the sole (bottom surface) of the foot. Aside from the big words, Noah, as much as I despise him as a Bulls player has been playing through pain and is giving it up for his team, team mates, fans and the organization.

Derrick Rose is healthy enough to play though

 

Luol Deng had a spinal tap procedure done to test for viral meningitis. What is a spinal tap? It’s defined as “it is a lumbar puncture to collect and look at the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord.” This sounds eerily similar to the epidural procedure women get done in preparation for child birth. Deng is a game time decision for Saturdays game 7 versus the Nets.

spinaltap

Derrick Rose, though, is healthy.

Kirk Heinrich has a bruised calf. Taj Gibson got a case of the chills while sitting on the bench Wednesday night. You saw him right? He was sitting a few seats down from Nate Robinson who had a towel over his head, hugging a trashcan.

Let me remind you in case you didn’t see…

But Derrick Rose is doing this….

rose2

Before you think I’m piling on D Rose or “hating” as you guys like to throw around, let me say this. I’m one of the few people that understands that  athletes and the mental edge that they need to do what they do is paramount about all else. Most people just think that sports figures are just barbarians who get out there and just throw, run and catch!

I understand it when Rose says “he will come back when God tells him he’s ready”. I can empathize with him if doesn’t think he’s mentally in check yet. I GET IT DERRICK. However…there comes a time when you’ve got to, pardon the cliche “get over the hump”! Your boys Taj, Noah, Deng and Kirk (and maybe Nate) are bussin their asses for the team right now. Reports say that you are killin these boys in practice. They say you’ve got the lift. The burst. The speed. Well..why can’t you get over the hump and take it to the court? When will you let the demons of the past go instead of

There have been “reports” of Rose not liking the team around him and won’t come back until the team makes wholesale changes in the off season. Word is that when the team released the information that he was medically cleared, Rose didn’t like that move and has continued sitting out in some sore of protest.

All of these rumors and street talk is juicy for sports radio and columnist, but what it really boils down to is that Rose must look within himself and overcome whatever it is he needs to overcome to get back on the court.  His city needs him. The fans need him. But more importantly, his team needs him. They have been there for him, not it’s his turn. Someone needs to tell him that he won’t be alone. Unless he’s

Derrick Rose Adidas 3 Chicago Fire Sneaker

Adidas continues to roll out there kicks in the name of Derrick Rose. These shoes supposedly are a “shootout” to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

Back in October of that year, there was a uncontrollable blaze that resulted in 300 deaths and the destruction of several landmark structures, and it left roughly a third of the city’s population homeless.

Will D Rose rock these on the court?

New Adidas Derrick Rose Commercial called “#TheReturn”

I’ve seen the videos, the commercials, etc. They (Adidas) are really grabbing this rehab  with D. Rose by the horns and making what can be called a brilliant marketing campaign with it.

I can’t help but think if the fine folks at Adidas are a little overzealous with the whole campaign.  Obviously they know more than we do in regards to Rose’s rehab and how it’s going. It would be just bad to see him come back and have another set back. Rose is great for the game and of course the league.

Let’s hope he will indeed be ready for the full 82 game grind when he returns.

Derrick Rose Breaks Down at Shoe Launch Event

I will admit I was going to tear into Derrick Rose when I heard about the crying in the video. As a Miami Heat fan, he’s the enemy to me. He, and the Bulls are a team that have stood in the way of the Heat and their Championship dreams.

Yes last year the Heat beat them in a best of 7 ECF. Yes this year the Bulls got eliminated in the 1st round because of Rose’s injury. But make no mistake about it, he’s a top 10 if not top 5 player in this league and they would have gone further had it not been for the injury.

So before I decided to rip him, I watched the video and felt his pain. He’s always been a humble star and I like that about him. Do I wish he would loosen up during All Star Weekend, sure. But one thing that I cannot deny him is his passion for his team, city and fans.

Hurry back DRose.

Derrick Rose rehabbing in “Club Paradise”

If this were Lebron James..well you know the rest.

Derrick Rose is currently rehabbing his body from a litany of injuries from this year, most notably the ACL/MCL tear he suffered in the 1st round of the playoffs.

Papparazzi caught him checking out rapper Drake’s “Club Paradise Tour” over the weekend.

I wonder if he danced…or at least rocked from side to side.

Injuries pile up in the NBA

With this lockout shortened NBA season, the onset of injuries can really hurt a team that is trying to make a run to the playoffs. With the back to back to back games and crazy travel schedule it’s imperative that players and teams do the best they can to stay healthy and not get run down by mid season.

Monday night there were some notable injuries around the league and some of the injuries happening to stars

Carmelo Anthony left the Knicks game against the Jazz after the first six minutes. Report are that he strained his groin and he’s listed as day to day. Anthony just returned to the lineup after being out with a sprained ankle on Jan. 14th.

Derrick Rose sat out the second half of the Bulls-Nets contest with lower back spasms. He scored just 4 points in 11 minutes but the Bulls still routed the Nets with some great play by Carlos Boozer (25-6-5. Could the Bulls be better without Rose?)

Probably the worst injury of all could be the possible season ending achilles tendon injury to ClippersChauncey Billups. He was untouched and fell to the court midway through the fourth quarter of the 107-104 OT win at Orlando.

After the game the Clipper locker room was understandably quiet and somber. Chris Paul fought back tears when asked about his teammate. Coach Vinny Del Negro kept shaking his head and simply said “this is not good”.
