One small problem……………
The season has been over for the Bulls, so really makes no sense for the Bulls to point out that Rose is feeling back to normal now, it isn’t like it matters or anything.
But, the Bulls want to let you know Rose is ready to go now.
“I worked him out about a week ago,” Thibodeau said in a phone conversation Thursday. “It was great.”
“Watching the way he’s moving now, there’s a confidence,” Thibodeau said. “[Reporters] may not have been able to see the total work he was putting in. But he was putting in an enormous amount of work each and every day. He just never got to the explosiveness he was comfortable with. I think he’s there now. He feels great, and that’s the most important thing.”
He said Rose is “running, lifting, playing and shooting. His day is full.”
Rose was medically cleared and started practicing in five-on-five situations in mid-February.
Bulls fan can only hope the Rose of old shows up next year.
