MAN DOWN! MAN DOWN!
This is a change of scenery for the nba playoffs! I was watching game 1 of the bulls vs 76ers, I was so excited to see Derrick Rose back on the hardwood after months of being sideline with an ankle, back and groin injury, but this one really shock the NBA universe! Chicago’s title hopes goes down the drain to see rose limp and down on the court. Actually I was amazed to see him play at an MVP type level, can’t argue that when Rose is on the floor, chicago’s offense flows like water.Almost posting a triple-double in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, chicago’s world has turned upside-down, time stopped and emotions burst, as you see your star fall down on the hardwood. I was shocked and saddened to see Derrick Rose limpin but like Coach Thibodeau said “it happens, it happens”.
It’s good to see Derrick Rose was able to walk after the injury, compared to (no pun intended) Iman Shumpert’s injury which his teammates need to carry him literally. Well coming to the post season, derrick rose is not a 100% basketball player due to his past injury, but respect to the guy, he gave his best to beat the 76ers and play at his best.
On the jackasses who think Tom Thibodeau should have sit him in the final minutes, well think twice. it is only a 12 point lead , lou williams, jrue holiday and andrei igoudala are on the floor. Remembers T-Macs 12 points in just less than a minute. that could happen, Coach Tom just want to finish it strong with his best guys on the floor making it sure that they take the win.Want to argue ask the memphis grizzlies and let them tell you the story of the great comeback of L.A. Clippers. It’s just tough that the win pay off with a high price and that is losing Derrick Rose.
Get Well soon D-Rose! Next Season Bulls will trample the EAST CONFERENCE!
