We didn't see much of Derrick Rose but heard plenty
So the Team USA camp video on NBA TV didn't show a whole lot of Derrick Rose playing. Heck, it didn't show lot of anyone playing. It showed a lot of announcers talking and a bunch of interviews. However, tuning in to see how Rose looked wasn't all that disappointing as probably 40% of the program was dedicated to discussing him...

Derrick Rose looking to avoid contact, play smarter? or is it?

Derrick Rose looking to avoid contact, play smarter?  or is it?
Team USA had its first practice yesterday and will televise camp today. It will be the first chance for Bulls fans to see Derrick Rose play since last November when he tore his knee (2pm CST on NBA TV for those recording at home).

Derrick Rose begins Team USA practice today, Jimmy Butler off the select team with groin injury

At least it's not Derrick Rose, that would have caused a panic. Jimmy Butler has passed on participating with the team USA select team "due to a slightly strained groin injury". Derrick Rose will still be there though, and I think that's what we're all most concerned with...

The Bulls offer, believed to be some combination of Taj + Jimmy + other stuff seems more likely to be Minnesota simply trying to push Cleveland than Chicago making any genuine push...

Chicago Bulls finally have more than enough to win

Chicago Bulls finally have more than enough to win
The Chicago Bulls concluded an off-season that disappointed many. They weren't able to bring in a second star or a dynamic scorer/shot creator after a frenzied chase for Carmelo Anthony and Cleveland's willingness to give up Wiggins ended any hope of the Bulls pursuit of Kevin Love...

Aaron Brooks makes the Bulls better

The Bulls needed another shot creator off the bench, and it appears that they're going to get Aaron Brooks who was high on my list of guys to pursue for the role. He should help fill that D.J.
