It appears my Chicago Bulls are in for another average season at best, but at least they have Derrick Rose. The former Memphis point guard was of course the #1 overall pick in the draft this year, and is already looking like the best player on the team. Yes, that speaks volumes about how bad they could be, but impressive for a 19-year-old kid nonetheless.
Tonight they were getting their asses handed to them by the Dallas Mavericks in a pre-season contest, and Rose led them back from a 23 point deficit to win. Yeah, Dirk, Terry, Kidd, and Howard were out during most of that time, but it was still incredible what Rose did.
He absolutely just took the game over in the 4th quarter. He'd looked tentative in the previous games, but he finally had that "I'm the best player on this team and it's time for me to win it" attitude that I wasn't so sure we'd see for awhile.
Anyway, here's the highlights of his 30 point output off the bench tonight. There's some pretty sick moves on this video, dude is lightning quick to the basket. He better be starting next week.
