An anxious Derrick Rose will finally return to the basketball court Saturday night, but today might be the easiest day leading up to that.

Rose is celebrating his 25th birthday but let us remind you of what he has shown us before 25. 

In the opener from a shortened season, Rose nails the game-winning shot on Christmas Day.

 Rose hits a buzzer-beater in a regular season game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

 Rose shows off his hops and dunking skills by posterizing Goran Dragic.

Rose maneuvers his way to the basket and puts in a fancy lay up around LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

A beautiful steal calls for a beautiful dunk (with authority). 

The crowd goes crazy after Rose finishes a one-handed alley-oop.

Rose turns the ball over but quickly recovers and blocks a lay up by James Johnson.

Rose sends the game into overtime shooting over two defenders in a game against the Houston Rockets.

The Bulls will travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers Saturday at 6 p.m. in a preseason game where Rose makes his long-awaited return.
