Rose fails to show up to film cameo
NBA star Derrick Rose sparked fury on the set of CBS's "The Good Wife" yesterday when he didn't show up to film an agreed cameo appearance in New York.

The Bulls point guard refused to come out of his house in Chicago when the crew sent a car to pick him up on Tuesday morning, sources tell us.

Rose -- who helped the Bulls to victory over the Portland Trail Blazers at Chicago's United Center on Monday night -- also refused to give the show's producers an explanation for his no-show, even though they had him booked on a flight to New York, the source added. (New York Post)

Why didn't the Bears put in a waiver claim on Randy Moss?

After being waived by the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, Randy Moss has been claimed by the Tennessee Titans and is expected to join the team. But why didn't the Bears put in a claim on the former Pro Bowl receiver?

"We didn't think he was a good fit for us given where we are in the season," Jerry Angelo said. "Not to minimize that he is a very talented player-his credentials speak for themselves-but what we're trying to do and will continue to do is develop our players that we have and continue to show the belief we have in them. Don't minimize what a player has to do coming in at mid-season to create a niche to help a team. How many players have come in at midseason and made a major contribution? Nothing is as easy as it looks; just ask Minnesota." (chicagobears.com)

Doug McDermott, Kyle Korver return to Creighton for NBA preseason game

Doug McDermott, Kyle Korver return to Creighton for NBA preseason game

Competing in Nebraska may have been foreign for most Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks players, but Doug McDermott and Kyle Korver were right at home. 

The veterans, who both starred at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., returned to their college stomping grounds for NBA preseason action Thursday night. Korver's Hawks got the best of McDermott's Bulls, 97-81, on Creighton's home floor.

Both had illustrious careers for the Blue Jays basketball squad. McDermott, who graduated in 2014, won the Wooden Award his senior season and is the all-time leading scorer. Korver, as you may have guessed, holds the school record for most three-pointers made. Fans at Thursday's game got a flashback from these glory days, as both logged significant minutes and put up offensive numbers.

Afterwards, McDermott thanked the Omaha faithful via Twitter. 

With the loss, the Bulls' preseason ends with a record of 3-4. They open regular season play on Oct. 27 against the Boston Celtics.
