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

Derrick Rose Is The Real Deal, The Bulls Are Not

10 Things I saw after 20 minutes of Bulls basketball the other night against the Denver Nuggets  God is an awful person to look at.  see? 10 - Joakhim Noah is an awful human being.  someone you wouldn’t want to show up at your party, be in your class, text you, or set a pick for you.  His hair is awful, he's a whinny bitch and he thinks he’s playing soccer with all that awful flopping.   Plus he looks like a guy at your local Y who eats nothing but fast food, gets on the treadmill for 10 minutes, walks around by the water cooler for 15 then calls it a day.  What with those scrawny arms and beer gut. Part of the crew! part of the Ship!
  1. 9 - Drew Gooden is as dumb as his beard looks like something out of Pirates of the Caribbean.  I just picture him chanting "Part of the Crew, Part of the Ship!"  to get guys jacked before a game.  Also, he is the dumbest basketball IQ on the team and maybe any team hes ever played on.  Thank God he can knock down any shot and he’s 6' 9". 
8 - Stacey King is a closet homo.  I just get that feeling.

7 - Vinny Del Negro looks like someone is holding his kids hostage and if the bulls lose he will lose one of his children.  The problem is he doesn’t have a clue as how to get any of the 12 players on the team to play well with one another.  One of his kids will soon be dead.

6 - Aaron Gray is dumber than Matt Damon in South Park.  He was awful @ Pitt, and....  That’s it.  Now he's awful here.

5 - Larry Hughes is so jealous of Derrick Rose that he won't pass him the ball or even look in his general direction.  He feels like someone should give him 80 million dollars and treat him like the franchise superstar.  Example.  In the 2nd Quarter, Derrick Rose crossed over 3 Nuggets, spun into a double team, then faded away, hung, got fouled by Kliza and made the 12 footer.  Amazing play.  Showed extreme talent, body control, ball control and the ability to create.  THE NEXT TRIP DOWN THE COURT, Hughes brings the ball up, dribbles right, sees Rose open in the corner, tries to spin into the lane and cross over his one defender, loses control of the ball and Denver has 2 points before Hughes could figure out what just happened and why he didn’t score.  Showed, selfishness, lack of talent, poor decision making and selfishness.  It was really awful.  In fact, this sequence of events has made me hate Larry Hughes more than anyone in the last 10 years of Bulls Basketball.

4 - Except when John Paxon selected Aaron Gray.

3 - Ben Gordon is the only player on the Bulls that can create his own shot and is better when someone makes him shoot awkwardly than give him a nice set, open 16 footer.  The more out of control he gets, the better he is at making a shot.  I wish he played defense.  Can't we teach that?  Cuz if we could...

2 - I would be all about getting rid of that cracker.  what’s his face?  Heimlich?  He’s already fading from memory....

1 - Derrick Rose is the real deal.  will have a better career than Beasley, will soon be mentioned in the same breathe as Chris Paul, Derron Williams, and any other guard you can think of.  He has the burst, the handles, the shot making ability, the Lebron-like (I said Like!) athleticism, the whole package.  He looks like he’s playing at a different speed compared to the other 8 or 9 guys on the court.  He's rare.    I just hope Larry Hughes' selfishness, Drew Gooden and Vinny Del Negro's cluelessness, and John Paxon's talent evaluation don't screw his head up too bad.   This kid is gonna be a great one.
