Full Court Press: Will Rose return this season?
I -- we talked about minutes in the past and that's an issue you just don't buy into UCL and NBA athlete should be able play as much as the coach is gonna give them. People who all day joking Noah looked tired just for the all star break the offense isn't functioning as well is there a little movement of fatigue issue -- I think. There's a fatigue issue but I think it's more mentally and physically -- there waiting for Derrick Rose to combat. Because they know when Derrick Rose comes back they wanted to top teams in the east. I think -- -- postponing his comeback that is weighing on them mentally also -- -- going down. Once again with the injury they know what type of team they are with Kirk in the lineup so I think it's more mental market is. When you mentioned Derrick Rose that's been a huge topic of conversation all yearlong really but mostly over the last couple weeks -- said he would not come back the plan Philly could dunk. Off stride but when you watch that video he still put up his good -- not the one that surgery. Coming up with the leg but hey I'll take one of Derrick Rose did live milk and dare I believe we'll be ready in the next few weeks if he can do -- right earmarking you. -- the guy that that's hard to do if you're going off drive like that take -- -- dump it right but I think that Derrek Lee. Very close he just lost the feel comfortable. With his body that's why they. His time. There's no question he's getting better once he overcomes these psychological hurdles I think we'll see heroes back on the floor in an NBA game this season. Here's our Bulls insider angry Sam about those mental challenges facing Rose. Obviously physically see that he's getting back -- -- being at the level where he was on the court. But mentally it's wanting to go into teammates in practice laments leaves nothing to be the focus of every opponent's defense every night and we expect the scores when he's going game and -- -- the go to guy for the Chicago Bulls in the one of the better teams in the NBA. So again I don't think they're forced to come back and no BS Shell of his former self he wants to come back and beat their growth may mean and former MVP there broke right away but he wants that police have that type of ability so. No and every once and didn't pace and then seeing these videos and hearing these statements we have to remember that. -- whatever mental burden that he has he has to overcome that before he gets back on the court. Well patience is a great thing but it'll take -- inside the psychology of an NBA team his teammates have been working so hard. Try to hold down the Portland calvary comes in and now they hear well I might not play this year yeah I have and that's kind of debilitating you know you don't want to do. Be working all season long have your team in this position. And then future superstar would not come back because that's the main reason why these guys work so hard and put. Put in the time to -- his team in the position I am because they know what their roles come back he can take him. To the promised land and I think that's why need to continue to be positive and not say that I'm not going to come back say that I'm getting close I'm getting closer because. That gives your team a little bit of positive. It was a very Cruceta tired team it's a team missile bit mentally down -- all the news and our leader being out there dropped from third in the east to sixth in the east right now. We'll see if they can pick it up over the final two months.
