Derrick Rose Dunks…On An 8-Foot Goal

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Ever since Derrick Rose went down with a knee injury a little over a year ago, fans have been waiting to see the former MVP back on court. We heard reports that he was getting healthy and working out with the Bulls, but eventually we learned that until we saw him back on the floor doing the amazing things he can do, we should wait patiently. Well, as of today, video now exists of Derrick Rose back on the court, throwing the ball down. Even if the goal is only 8 feet high.

This apparently came from Rose’s recent Euro Tour stop in Madrid. While goofing around on the court, Rose ended up with the ball and went through the legs for the nasty dunk. OK, sure, the goal is only 8 feet tall, but Rose sure looks smooth, and that smile on his face speaks volumes…

    Derrick Rose and I have something inb common… same number of rings. JK lots of respect to Derrick Rose making a great comeback. I hope he, Andrew Bynum, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Ware, and Greg Oden have terrific comebacks next year! Hope I didn’t forget anybody.

    God I am so excited for the bulls to fail. Honestly I like their team but all this D. Rose hype is so fail. Do you really believe ONE person can win anything. They will be decent but you wait, highlight this post at the end of next season the bulls will be out in the first round.

      ur such a MORON Ravens. Bulls out in the 1st round? They got in the 2nd round without Rose and so many injured players. Wait till Rose comes back together with the much improved Butler. Noah, Deng,Boozer, Hinrich, Gibson, Dunleavy and their rookies Snell and Murphy. Bulls!!

      • jtgv1 says:

        the following teams can bet the bullls easy Miami, Indiana, BKN and maybe the CAVS if byunum is healthy which is highly unlikely but they stil have varajeo aka old man noah

      You obviously don’t know basketball. Bulls can beat anyone even without Derrick Rose. The reason is because they have a top 5 coach and guys who have heart. Thibs is a REAL coach. Not some guy who thinks hes a coach when he has the best player in the NBA (Spoelstra). The Bulls have guys like Joakim Noah who plays with heart and hustle. Then you add in Luol Deng, Boozer and the emergence of Jimmy Butler. They also had Nate Robinson. Robinson’s career was dead before he came to Chicago. He came off the bench and played great basketball, unfortunately he is gone, but he made an impact because Thibs gave him an opportunity. So even if Drose struggles, he’ll have guys who can help with the scoring and defending. Right now the Bulls are a top 5 team and can easily beat ANYONE INCLUDING THE HEAT.

      • KareemoftheKrop says:

        Nate Robinson signed with the Nuggets weeks ago but everything else you said is spot on

      • JUSTFYI says:

        Just so you know, Robinson had a pretty good career before he went to the bulls, He was doing that with the Knicks and Celtics and the other teams he was with before joining the Bulls.. Thibs just gave him more leadway due to the fact D Rose was sitting on the bench being a cheerleader. Bulls are always a threat though due to their defense and with the upgrade on O, your correct on all that competing with other teams but not easily beating them come next season. #3 seed and a 2 round exit if they face the Pacers or maybe even BKN.

    is anyone really thinks that bulls can win championship , i cant believe u think that , only on the east there are at least 4 teams that are better than the bulls , miami , indiana , nets will probably be and maybe knicks , and bulls didnt improve at all , i dont know why they didnt bring some guy that can help d rose in scoring , is money the problem, who will they use at sg position , jimmy butler , i like d rose to but all you hard d rose fans think one guy can win it all . just like lebron won it all in cleveland , and u still dont know how will he play after this injury and u still think that

    those children will make it to NBA before Derrick Rose return
