Derrick Rose is adidas big star. No offense Dwight Howard, you’re great and all, but it’s guards and wings that sell shoes. Big men, not so much.
My only hope is that the driven Rose doesn’t rush back too fast. What matters is really getting himself and his knee right, not pushing it to play a January game against the Warriors. Rose will want to come back before he is fully ready, as all driven players do. The Bulls have to hold him back until the doctors fully sign off. If it means this season is a wash, so what? Think big picture.
