Derrick Rose dominates the Cavaliers in Bulls loss

Derrick Rose dominates the Cavaliers in  Bulls loss
The Chicago Bulls lost the game, I guess, but Derrick Rose's 30 were about 10x as impressive as Irving's 28 given that he did virtually all of his damage against Kyrie while Irving only lit up Aaron Brooks. LeBron appeared to mostly take the day off, Kevin Love couldn't get going, and the rest of the Bulls stunk in a preseason game which ends up telling us very little...

Kirk Hinrich is going to play shooting guard, W T F.
Tom Thibodeau noted already that he's going to run with a nine man rotation meaning anyone who's not in those nine will only play spot minutes here and there. Rose, Butler, Dunleavy, Gasol, Noah, Hinrich, and Gibson are all obvious. That leaves two spots left...

Derrick Rose looks back athletically what should we expect for everything else?

Derrick Rose looks back athletically what should we expect for everything else?
So far Derrick Rose looks back athletically. His movement looks explosive, he certainly looks like he's playing without fear. It's difficult to say whether he's lost 2% or 3% of his speed, but he certainly doesn't appear to have lost 10% or 20% or an amount which should have a considerable impact on his game...
