When the Bulls signed Richard Hamilton in December, they envisioned him pairing with Derrick Rose to form one of the top guard duos in the NBA. But injuries have made it impossible for them to get 100 percent comfortable together.
Rose and Hamilton have only been in the starting lineup 17 times together after missing a combined 63 games.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Rose knows the two still have room to grow as backcourt mates.
"Have I learned how to hit him in stride? Well, I'm getting to that," Rose told the Tribune's Vaughn McClure. "I've been out, shoot, 26 games. But I have been able to watch his tendency and where he wants the ball. The only thing I know is if I deliver the ball to him, it's got to be pretty hard."
Hamilton appears to be as healthy as he's been all season, playing in the last 10 games and averaging 17.25 points in over 28 minutes over his last four. Meanwhile, Rose returned from a three-game layoff for a foot injury Saturday night and said he was feeling good afterwards.
With only two games left in the regular season, Rose and Hamilton might need to use the first round of the playoffs to build the quality chemistry that could lead to a NBA championship.
Luis Solignac has made a big difference to the Chicago Fire’s attack since joining the team in early August.
On Friday, the Argentine forward added an award to show for his impact on the team. He won MLS Goal of the Week for his opening goal in the 3-0 win at Montreal on Aug. 20.
The curling goal from Solignac was his first in a Fire uniform. He also drew a penalty kick, which David Accam converted, in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with the LA Galaxy.
In Solignac’s 312 minutes, nearly three and a half games, the Fire have scored seven goals. Not bad considering the Fire were averaging less than a goal per game before Solignac’s arrival.
In case you were wondering whether Ben Zobrist knows all the words to "Let It Go," he does.
The Cubs' All-Star second baseman spent at least part of the team's off day with his family at Disneyland, and he posted this Instagram video of him and his daughter screaming along to the song from the movie "Frozen."
Check it out:
Some great family time for Zobrist. His wife has a challenger for the family's best singer. But not really.
Back in June, Jim Harbaugh asked Hank Aaron if he'd be an honorary captain at a Michigan football game this season.
Aaron has taken him up on it.
A look at Michigan's official website revealed to the Internet that one of the greatest baseball players of all-time will be the honorary captain for Michigan's Homecoming game against Illinois on Oct. 22.
Harbaugh chatted with Hammerin' Hank and donned a No. 44 Braves jersey during a stop in Atlanta on his whirlwind satellite-camp tour this summer, with Aaron sporting a Michigan hat.
Aaron will follow Michael Jordan, another all-time great who will serve as Michigan's honorary captain for the season-opener against Hawaii.
But while Jordan's connection to Michigan is all business — the Wolverines are the first football team to be outfitted by Jordan Brand — Aaron has a different reason to visit Ann Arbor, as his granddaughter attends the university.
