Derrick Rose is free to come back when he thinks he is ready, but he isn’t helping his public perception with these mysterious maybe I will, maybe I won’t quotes.
Here is his latest round of comments on if he will come like Jordan wearing the 45.
“Still in the air. I might have a chance,” Rose said Monday morning the Bulls shootaround, about nine hours before Game 1 of Chicago’s Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Miami Heat.
The Bulls have been very resilient and tough-minded team even with Rose out, but they are certainly overmatched against the Heat.
They are going to need Rose to be either all in or all out, so he doesn’t become a distraction for the series. He should just announce he isn’t coming back, because mentally he simply isn’t ready to do nothing, except jump really high on the bench.
