Time for Some Action

Tonight's match-up: Chicago Bulls vs San Antonio Spurs

Withstanding my immense adoration for Derrick Rose, its pretty obvious this guy has extreme talent. His athleticism and agility has kept him among this generation's most elite point guards. He's been leading his Bulls team down the road to redemption since he got there in '08. This summer Rose participated in the FIBA World Championship as the starting point guard for, what they were termed, the B-team. Well, the B-team turned out to be another Redeem team when they brought home gold medals for USA for the first time since the 1994 FIBA World Championship. Derrick and the rest of the USA team definitely earned their medals fair and square and if there were any doubters, the entire squad has been putting on a show this season.

With #1 Overall Draft Pick, Rookie of the Year, All-Star, and now World Champion under his belt Rose is gunning for that number one spot. With each season the hometown kid sets his sights higher and higher, and this season Rose is looking to be the league's MVP. And I wouldn't knock his hustle, the kid's got game!

Coming off of a big win @ Houston last night the Bulls seek to continue their winning streak @ San Antonio tonight. Sekou Smith over at the Hang Time Blog writes,
"You don’t have to be a Chicago Bulls fans to appreciate the work Derrick Rose puts in on a nightly basis. Watching him in the fourth quarter against the Rockets last night was a crystal clear reminder of just how truly explosive the Bulls’ hometown hero can be. He dropped 17 of his game-high 33 points in the fourth, a dazzling display for a guy that turns in those sorts of performances on the regular."
So tune in tonight to ESPN for the D-Rose show, and might I add, "I wouldn't be surprised to see some fireworks here folks."

Here's my fave Rose on-court moment:

I LOVE watching this kid play!

So, the Bulls fell to the Spurs tonight (94-103). But Derrick Rose definitely came through as usual (33pts,4ast,3reb). Rose was playing offense all alone, as usual. The Bulls have got to get some better scoring options. Offense is expected to pick up once Boozer is back, but I won't be satisfied until I see everyone steppin' up. All the sloppy D has a lot to do with the Ls as well. This was the exact problem that plagued them last year. What started out as a good game for the Bulls was trumped when the Spurs blew them out completely in the 3rd quarter. Despite the fact that the Bulls loss tonight, Rose is still a winner.
