I know he says he is going to come back next season, but I don't he will last his final year of his contract. Next year might be one long retirement party.

Too bad that the game doesn't mean anything right now. Lakers are going to the postseason no matter what.

Derrick Rose is a crying baby who is too scared to play despite the fact that he was cleared THREE MONTH ago. No way that he will come out knowing that he will be raped by Lebron.
Rose is not a champ, he is a chump.

Just because he's cleared to play doesn't mean that he is ready. I think we got a little spoiled watching Adrian Peterson recover so quickly from his ACL injury and turn around and win the MVP last season. People heal from injuries at different rates, and that's not including the psychological factors as well.

Don't blame Rose as much as you should blame Bulls management for not shutting him down for the season, and blame the media for exacerbating the problem, as they usually do.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Rose should have come out and said that he would NOT play this season regardless the circumstances since that is what he is planning to do anyway. Instead, we are hearing him saying that he does not rule out a return in the playoffs. The longer the soap opera endures, the worse because Rose's teammates are pinning false hopes on him.

Rose is the one who must shoulder the blame. I mean, his guy has been out for a year and was cleared three MONTHS ago, Rubio suffered the same kind of injury and returned much earlier than expected. Oh, considering how hard the other Bulls (Noah for example) fight through injures instead of sitting out like a coward, the whole Rose saga makes him a spoiled little kid who is too scared to play because he does not want to re-injure himself.
So hey, Rose...just retire, you will NOT get injured if you retire from playing basketball. As much as I respect the other Bulls not named Rose, they have no chance against the Heat.

Here's the problem, if he says that he doesn't want to play, then he would be unfairly labeled as a coward even if was cleared. Of course he wants to play, but as I said, he's the only person who knows his body, and he's not going to just simply ride the bench for a few minutes as a rehab start in the playoffs. Just because we saw AP recover quickly from an ACL, doesn't mean it's all the same.

In retrospect, it would have been a good idea in theory, but the media will label him something that he is not, and we all knew how long it takes to shake any negative label off of someone. Just look at Lebron as an example.

Rose is the one who must shoulder the blame.

The media must shoulder some blame too, but they have a habit of passing the blame around.

1. Rubio is nowhere near a Derrick Rose level of a player, never mind that healing rates of athletes is different, but I've already mentioned that.

2. The other players injuries were not as bad as what Rose suffered from, you can't do much of anything if you have a torn ACL or even other ligaments in the knee. God forbid he gets injured again this season like he did last year, then I know you would've crucified him for going in when he should be resting. ACL tears are generally devastating, and it takes a lot of physical and mental rehab to fully recover from one.

So hey, Rose...just retire, you will NOT get injured if you retire from playing basketball.

Really? That would be like saying to Charles Barkley or Karl Malone to retire in the early 90's because they had no chance in hell to beat MJ in the NBA Finals.

As much as I respect the other Bulls not named Rose, they have no chance against the Heat.

Unfortunately, you are right on this one. A healthy Bulls team is the only legit team that can beat the Heat in a playoff series, and that certainly isn't the case now.

Can't let Duke's post be the last post of this thread can it?

To start the discussion, does anyone find it sad how the Knicks struggled despite the talent they have? After last season, you'd figure they could improve but instead, they struggled in the worst division in the game right now. I know it's the Knicks and all but even for them, it's still sad.

It's depressing to see a team with that high of a payroll constantly struggle like the Knicks have done, though the the last couple of years, they brought themselves back some respectability. Part of the reason why the Knicks have been so bad is that there is no sense of accountability on this team, especially with the owner. Another part of it is that are totally reliant on Carmelo to do everything on offense, just like what happen when he was in Denver, which may have part to do with being coached by George Karl and Mike D'antoni, two of the most overrated coaches in the NBA who only believes in jacking up shots by volume and not play any serious defense, if any at all.

In all this however, they still are in the playoff race because the Easten Conference is morbid beyond Indy and Miami. If you want a team that is ran worse than the Knicks, just go look at the team they just torched yesterday, the Cleveland Caviliers. No leadership, no decent players beyond Irving, (who's vastly overrated as a player) and an owner that is petty and exploitative. This isn't the first time that they squandered 1st round picks on either stupid decisions (trading them away, Anthony Bennett) or end up biting them in the ass. (Lebron, Kyrie Irving)

Makes me wonder why the Seattle investment group didn't try to buy Gilbert out, and move the Cavs to Seattle instead of the Kings, considering that both are godawful franchises that are essentially driven into the ground. Really, no one outside of Northeastern Ohio ever rooted the Cavs other than the time that Lebron was there, and even then it was a tough sell.

My perfect bracket went down the drain when Cincinnati fell to Harvard. Aside from Dayton, the Ohio schools pretty much shat the bed in the first round. (well, second round but I don't count those so-called first round games)

Though, I can take comfort in the fact that Ohio State was the first team to fall in the tournament. Figures as much considering that they are the San Diego Chargers of college basketball, (and college football as well) do well in the regular season, but when the lights are on bright, they find a way to fall apart hard.

Looks like Duke laid another dookie in the tournament, losing to Mercer, 78-71. Somewhere in Omaha, Warren Buffett is laughing at us all the way to the bank, figures as much.

LeBron is back in Cleveland.

Between this and Johnny Football going to the Browns, Cleveland looks like its going to get a good amount of press for its sports teams in the near future.

Oh, they'll get their coverage, just don't expect a lot of it to be positive though, as they will find a way to screw it all up and revert back to their usual ways. All I can think of is how long will it be before Dan Gilbert destroys all of their good fortune again like he did in 2010? They'll most likely be the favorites to come out of the East and win a title (lol) but that's what we said about the Lakers a couple of years ago when they got Steve Nash, and that didn't turn out well.

Never mind that Johnny Football will get thrashed in the NFL on a dismal team, but that's a different topic for a different day.
