Can Derrick Rose Get Back To His Old Form?

The Chicago Bulls have had a fair shot at the Eastern Conference title over the last two seasons, but without Derrick Rose on the court, they are way too limited offensively.  Rose seems to be ready to comeback, but can he last and get back to his old form?

roseThe Chicago Bulls have had a fair shot at the Eastern Conference title over the last two seasons, but without Derrick Rose on the court, they are way too limited offensively.  Rose seems to be ready to comeback, but can he last and get back to his old form?

“I really think I’m a special player in my mind,” Rose said. “And I still have youth — I’m only 25. Just doing everything I’m supposed to do in rehab, just strengthening everything, taking it one day at a time and getting the most out of every day. That’s why I’ve been preparing for this moment, really.”

Rose is trying to make his second comeback, but this time he’s taking it slow and he believes he’s doing everything the right way.

“I’m there, man,” Rose said, when asked how close he is to playing like his old self. “I’m not worried about that. My confidence is very high, and that’s the only thing you might see this year — that my confidence level is through the roof.”

The Chicago Bulls signed forward Pau Gasol, giving Rose a new teammate to play with.  Gasol is one of the most intelligent players in the NBA and can only help a team that grinds out every night, but lacks some finest ballers.

The Bulls are listed 16/5 to win the Eastern Conference, only behind the Cleveland Cavaliers, who recently added Lebron James to their roster.  Chicago is also 10/1 to win the 2014-15 NBA Championship.
