Bulls fans must find beauty in a wilted ‘Rose’

Now that all the candlelit vigils have dulled to a flicker, Bulls fans have had about 24 hours to digest the season-ending injury suffered by Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.

Bulls Hang on by the Bridge of Rose’s Nose to Beat Detroit

For the second time in two games, the Bulls have won in overtime thanks to a last second three pointer. On Thursday, it was CJ Watson draining the tying three against the Miami Heat while Derrick Rose sat on the bench. Sunday night, it was Rose hitting the game tying three. (This would be the perfect time to make a Lebron James joke, but, I'll control myself.) With last night's 100-94 victory, the Bulls hav ...

Bulls Prepare for Boston

After riding pine for the last 11 games, the question on everyone's mind is when will Derrick Rose return to the lineup? The answer to me is simple: after Derrick Rose says he's 100% better, keep him benched for two more games. The last thing you want is Derrick Rose missing time during the playoffs by re-aggravating his injury. Without Derrick Rose, the Bulls play like a 7th or 8th seed at best. Playing at ...
