Derrick Rose’s return feels like it’s been going longer than we have been waiting on Detox to drop. It’s actually coming though with the season just around the corner. Before training camp opens up, Rose is still on his shoe selling tour of Asia with Adidas. He of course is constantly being asking about his return. This time he’s asked about changing his style of play:

“No,” Rose answered when asked if there will be a “tweak” in his game this season. “I think the only thing that’s gonna change is my confidence level….

“As far as shooting, I think that’s the only thing I need to work on,” he said. “The only thing I’ve been working on is shooting longer shots, because I think if people have to come out and stick with me a little bit further, it opens up the court a little bit more, and give me enough room to create and get my guys open.”

“I think I want to be more efficient when I go out there and play,” Rose added. “(I want to) be able to control the whole game, with me being the point guard and having the ball for majority of the game.”

Even though I think he has been saying this since he was at Memphis, this is good news for Bulls fans. Rose’s ability to set his teammates up and get them spacing will be crucial for the Bulls to take the next step to beating the Heat. Expectations are high in Chicago this year but they need to make that leap now because their window is closing quicker than they realize.
