Sure, all the big headlines are around the exciting match-up starting tomorrow between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder.
As a Chicago Bulls fan, however, another piece of news caught my ear — a recent report that things are going well for Derrick Rose and his recovery from surgery to repair his ACL.
Teammate Taj Gibson said in part,
“I think he’s improving quicker than people have expected him to improve.”
That’s what I like to hear — the sooner that he can get back to being one of the best point guards in the league, the better.
Because the recovery timeframe is expected to be up to 12 months, Rose could theoretically be out all of next year.
That’s why there have been some interesting rumors that the Bulls may pursue all-star caliber point guards such as Steve Nash and Jason Kidd to run the team from the point in Rose’s absence. Those will be some interesting developments to follow this offseason.
