This is a great night for the Chicago Bulls, who get their best player and 2011 NBA MVP back tonight just in time for open season against fellow Eastern Conference rival Miami Heat.
The 25-year-old basketball icon is coming back hopeful and strong as he is set to be playing in his first live game since a knee injury which sidetracked his projected successful season back in April 2012. It’s great to have him back Chicago has missed him!
Rose believes there is no more of a fitting opponent to debut against than the two-time defending NBA champions, who will be hoisting their newest banner in an elaborate pregame ceremony.
“They’ve got something that we want, so we can’t hold back,” Rose said.
Rose was asked if he thinks this is the best Bulls team assembled since the Michael Jordan era (he seems to think so) and if he plans on recapturing his MVP form.
His answer was clear – that’s not the trophy he wants.
“I’m just trying to play the game,” Rose said. “Of course I want to come out here and be the best player, but my whole goal is to come out here and just try to win a championship. … Winning MVP or whatever, I’ll take it, don’t get me wrong. But my job is to come out here and just try to win a title.”
Do you think D. Rose will have a better season this year?
