Derrick Rose is “Close” to Returning, But Doesn’t Feel Quite Ready
Just shut it down D Rose.
No one is going to hold it against you (well, maybe a few people, but they will get over it) if you decide not to play this season.
It is clear, mentally he is not in the right mindframe to come back on the court, so what is the point? The Bulls are unlikely to be a legitimate challenger in the playoffs with or without Rose.
Since it is so late in the season, they might have a better chance without him, since he would be so rusty. Instead of these teases every day, I think it is time to just let it go and come back strong in 2013-14.
Thibs said D. Rose is “close” to a return but still doesn’t quite feel ready. Said only he knows when he’ll be good to go. Won’t speculate.
