CTL: Will Rose play this season
Thu, 14 Feb 2013|
Insider Aggrey Sam joins the panel on CTL to discuss Derrick Rose's injury and if he will play this season - 2/14
Last night after the game you guys got a chance to talk to Derek. What is your take away from that now do you think he's going to play -- not. I'm home I'm not sort of you know with you mean that the whole time -- maintain that there will come back when he's ready yes -- -- troops saying that but. I do think that there's a possibility. No I think he's being extremely cautious which is probably the right approach our -- -- -- better than anyone else but. As opposed some of the other guys will come back from the same surgery in months or Ricky Rubio or Federer. I think Derrick is holding so to a higher standard I don't think he wants to come back and be a tremendous player I don't think you want these cities that. Know in the high eighties when he thought the USA today I think he really does wanna be at 10110%. So. Will be remains to be seen what I definitely think every -- that petition of right after the all star break right now is probably not going to be the case. Have a fair question official video because earlier in the season when that went. I just hammering he was Iranians -- permanent retirement Adrian Peterson every year is different -- that I would not be at all surprised if he didn't play the whole season and if you look at this pragmatically. They can't beat Miami and they can't beat the worst time come out of the west so I mean do you wanna take the risk to get to have to he's final I don't know I don't know whether it's worth its first. Why does -- usually is when he makes a comment that he can't dunk in. All you have to do is read -- that his game is not standing on the perimeter shooting he goes to the rim that's it and if he's if he's if afraid but hesitate at all or it's in the back of his mind he doesn't wanna come back like I said I agree and be. Not a 100% exactly I mean I think right now if he came back. He will probably be serviceable NBA player but that's not good enough for him now with the conditioning and -- -- taking those fact is Donovan -- Derek wants to come back we could use impact like he always does but Jimmy Butler. Has told people -- he had zero assists rocket -- ribbons around there he's Duncan over the -- It's almost tell the truth there I mean I've heard from some people that he's dunking but I think when he says in stride I think that's the comment. That really we should've read into a memorable Obama did make a move -- off the dribble fast break that type of thing -- what kind of dropped did the would you put would you. Risk bringing him back just for the playoffs and we some guys. Come back after his foot injury and it's also the competition is so hard that to get back in that -- -- group is really playing well with the winner when the conference. Is there a point where you just say okay they're China dolls were a mixture. Maybe mid march -- you know I think you wanna get at least a month of the regular season under his belt. Before going into the playoffs and everything. Obviously it's not the same exact team that he last played with a lot of new teammates and you wanna get that chemistry you know Lisa semblance of it in that system works and whether the kinks out the -- the jitters and you know I'm I'm not so sure if it was no early April something he couldn't still make an impact with the chemistry would need to be right to. All right. After the game there was asked if he feels that some people are saying he needs to become more of the shooter and not rely so much on his explosiveness let's hear what he had said. I'm working so much. One you know related who has she's going to be solid if you know they can consistently fit his -- and there's always going to be drug. And that's who he is so that's another reason why he's not a ball reversal Kyle Korver John Paxson he's Derrick Rose. It was out of I mean is something you want to do within his game and everything put. That is scored in the third his age he's gonna still be -- gets to the basket -- that's the way. You need to mean. Them to pull off a major upset. You would need our gross the spectacular there are pros not not just a very good Derrick Rose who doesn't mean at least against you know certainly it's Miami maybe even against the Mexican mound. In the east. Well I mean I look at the east I think as Miami and everyone else right now obviously they've been up and down this season. But on the Bulls and looking back at some years ago because lastly obviously you know he got hurt the first round and I think that's who they have there I -- I mean even the -- they'd -- beat them out three times this season. Indiana they're a threat but still kind of the little brother just because they haven't got that far in the playoffs yet so. I really do believe that Miami is who the team would be worrying about but I don't think the organization is thinking you know we have to have him back for the Eastern Conference finals for the state of the playoffs it's just more about. Him working their rust off and I I think that he has to trust his body in do what he feels is right at the same time if it's me and I have any kind of influence. I'd say you know coming back this season when be a bad thing just so next year -- you have that defeat affect is gone. Everywhere since the injury happened everybody's can bring comparing it to Adrian Petersen I consider Ricky Rubio which I think he's dangerous do you get the sense that Derek. Is paying any attention to those other injuries or is he just focused on listen whatever is good for me is what's gonna happen. I don't care how fast are the guys came back and it's funny the guy he mentioned last night with Eric Maynor who is a -- this that I don't know an entire season. And came back this year and I'm certainly -- as an elite point guard Kalin VCU did the first Oklahoma City. And you know just looking in Maine and this year he's been up and down he's a guy that. -- is none explosive player like Barrett but just looking now is a little almost a little bit unsure of that me I think that is something this you know resounding in his mind. But I don't think doing the trade deadline when I was often western Canada where it's still unemployed -- So -- -- Do the Bulls go to him and say at some point you we need to make a decision and does that affect what they do. Don't stretch the Spurs trees or roster -- I don't think so I think this season was always about you know there's recovery and that takes the whole season so be it. We've seen this is a playoff team you know without -- -- -- -- -- when he gets back in the lineup to be a little bit more solidified the point guard position but. I don't think they change anything obviously it's a team that. In those financially strapped also also not -- -- to me anymore I cut this Derek was asked -- you were there. About who makes the final decision when he steps back on the court. These days of scorers you from organization horror. All of you who trainers. Just you know long ago. There's really no reason. It is. That's cool that they need that they look for the young fresh. They're going. Well I think it. This current -- coming back to assume I don't know. It's only so. I was gonna -- the majority. Interest I think he has influence that decision yes this -- -- -- that. That's kind of my back bothers me I don't feel as they are not bothers me Russian agent -- the one -- -- -- come back when he does come our way. You unique situation I mean he was. He can relate having been a bowl having played in this medium market data that does the last. Probably the -- because the age. It's obviously gonna take the absolute positive short way out. As opposed to taking any risk that might be a legitimate press -- that that does bother me and the -- guarantee -- any mentions is the agent. Not the Bulls not the doctor or not anybody Immunex further developments and I'm Derrick roses media and on that -- feels every day. I'm just stunned that the first person mentioned was the -- -- -- good -- up with that -- minimize all guaranteed to. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- First all right let's talk about this team because I look at the Bulls and I have said this for a long time when you've been on the show. I don't see any scenario I don't care how Derrick comes back he come back in the MVP that this team is good enough. To go to the Eastern Conference finals and beat the Miami Heat I just don't see it they're not as good as the team that they had with the bench mob. And now we're expecting that team to beat the Miami Heat with LeBron and all they've got going on that I think the Knicks are better and the Pacers might be better. I'm not -- about the Knicks and the pace is but as far as being Miami yeah I mean the way they've started including this summer I don't think the team built to win a championship then certainly. Over achieved at times this season for the -- -- -- there was this out of anybody else on the east then if he does come back singing it start in the playoffs if he's looking. He -- he's fifteen game you know guys and they get his legs under him and everything. You have to think that there was that sense than anybody else in the conference this.
