D-Rose is D-Show!

 Thats right.  Derrick Rose has officially got me back into Bulls basketball 100%.  Salmons and Gordon had some part in this and beating the Celtics in Game 1 didn't hurt - But D-Rose is a reason to watch the Clippers games next year!  Not that the everyday roster of garbage that we have been streaming along for the past 10 years (really?) hasn't kept my attention during The Pete Myers era Clippers games, but this kid is exciting!  He reminds me of a 6'1" Lebron!  He has the same body control and his style is rediculously similiar. 

I would just like to say to anyone who still thinks the NBA is boring and stupid, "WATCH DERRICK ROSE."  I promise a good time and at least one ,"How'd he do that?" moment and one, "No f*^^**' way!" moment. 

What he did today against the Celtics was downright extraordinary.  36 Points Pasing Jordan and Chamberlain and tying Jabbar? I dont care if it is an obscure, "Points in First Playoff Game as a Rookie," category.  To be even hinted at in a conversation with names like that in it should at least get an eyebrow raise. 

Hey , look over here. Sealed     I'm (Cool) letting you in on a secret that the whole world is about to notice.  Don't you miss out on the beginning of one really good career in your own backyard. 

Unfortunately Aaron Gray might just play for 3 minutes. Cry  That I apologize for. 

But what if I promised a championship?  Embarassed

The NBA, where Number Seven happens.Surprised

 

P.S. read what I wrote 5 months ago about the kid.  http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/

yeah, it is that easy to see.  JUST WATCH!

Cool

Would LeBron pick Chicago as a FA?  It worked for MJ, Chicago is cooler than New York, it now has its own espn website, and MJ is a billionairre!  Why New York?  Cuz Jay-Z is there?   Does he not want any part of Michaels shadow?  Is it because Michael wouldn't let him wear 23?  Would Michael let him wear 23? 

I'm convinced the number thing would put a whole kabash on this Lebron to Chicago idea.  How do we get Dwight Howard?  Jordan never wore 12 did he?

 and he's only a rookie!!  Imagine Rose in the NBA after a couple of years.  What #'s can we expect??  I dont think 28/10 is an unreal expectation.  He hasn't been getting any calls this year.  If Devin Harris can get to the line over 10/game, Derrick should get 10 by the 1st half.   Once Derrick develops a true jump shot where they can't go under the screen, the NBA is in trouble.  Pair that with Bosh/Wade or even LeBron and a dynasty is born

Yup, yup! 

Remeber how Head wanted the Bulls to take Michael Beasley?  I'm sure Beasley will be a fine player, but Rose is a once-every-fifty-years kind of guy.

Mark it down, this kid will go down as one of the top 50 players ever!
