Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose Is Ready To Join His Team On The Bench

Dennis Wierzbicki – USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bulls fans are about to get some news that will likely raise their hopes only to be dashed later on.

Franchise point guard Derrick Rose is off crutches and could resume traveling with the Bulls in a few weeks; his meniscus tear is progressing and his head coach is hopeful of the recent signs.

“He’s coming along fine,” coach Tom Thibodeau said after Monday’s shootaround. “He’s off the crutches. He’s doing more and more but he still has a long way to go. But he’ll probably start traveling in the next couple weeks. He’s doing great.”

Will be interesting to see how vocal he is one the bench as he travels with the team, but none of those words give me any indication that he could be ready before the end of the regular season. That is what I’m hearing from that, but have admittedly been wrong once or twice in the past.

Have warned my readers before that Rose will probably be out for the year (especially if the Bulls miss the playoffs), but you also never know what could happen. Best of luck to Rose in his rehab, and lord knows the executives over at Adidas are definitely hoping for a comeback this season. Those mothers though are going to be holding their breathe for a long time if I am reading the tea leaves in this diatribe.

That is all for pro b-ball today, but be sure to stop by for some previews tomorrow morning. Boom.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Pau Gasol Puts "Shake and Bake" On Kobe Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls squared off on Thursday night, so naturally all eyes were on former teammates Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. The two had a nice embrace prior to opening whistle, but it was strictly business once the game got started. Don't believe me? Just check out this "Shake and Bake" executed to perfection by Gasol.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
