That was vintage Derrick Rose — absorbing the contact, still getting the and-1 bucket, and hitting the ground hard.

Rose and how he looks is one of the big questions for this Team USA camp and a couple of highlights don’t paint a full picture, but Derrick Rose seems to be moving and playing like the Derrick Rose of old. Like in this play.

If that Derrick Rose is back, watch out for the Bulls next season.

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
