The Chicago Bulls look like the favorites to win the Eastern Conference to many, especially if Derrick Rose returns to original form. After two straight seasons of suffering with knee injuries, many are hoping there is at least just a small glimpse from the Rose of old.
Reports have came out throughout the offseason that Rose is looking like the MVP version of his old self. However, we heard the exact same thing a year before, and Rose looked not-so-good on the court this past season.
Hopefully these latest words from Bulls rookie Doug McDermott can provide some more insight on how good Rose really is right now. Maybe Rose is for real the old version of himself.
From K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:
More McDermott on Rose: "He looks like the old DRose to me."

I guess we’ll just have to see once the new season approaches in a couple of months.
