08:07 AM ET 03.13 | At this point, it's all up to Derrick Rose. The hamstrings are better. The workouts easier. He can do everything physically. He's feeling no pressure from the Bulls to return. Reggie's just being Reggie. And there's no rift between Derrick and the Bulls organization. He'll be back when he feels like it. That's going to have to be good enough. "I don't know [if I'll play this season]," said Rose, speaking to Chicago reporters before practice Tuesday. "I'm coming back when I feel normal. If that's in a couple of days, that's great. If it's not, I'm fine." ... Rose also said there's no rift between him and the organization, as has been speculated as anxiety over his return has increased. ... "Crazy, making up stuff," Rose said, laughing, when asked about the purported rift.

But yet you tell Melo to shut it down...lol

I would say rest Kobe & Howard if we were locked in the playoffs too.

Well, since he didn't make the All-Star game.....why come back and try to win a ring??

It's Kobe's fault...

We're fine with it too. With Rose or without Rose, Chicago ain't makin' it anyhow.

Ha ha ha ha. What I don't understand is how some of the same people who villified Lebron, Melo, and Dwight Howard for their drama, are so quick to give this guy a pass. D Rose, while a great player, is a whiny fraud in terms of personality. I said it when he claimed to have sat in his house pining away after being bounced from the playoffs 2 seasons ago, and I still say it.

Think about it. If he was so upset and engaging in such deep introspection about what could have been, and how he couldn't done better, why did we, the general public even know about it? BECAUSE HE TOLD US. Why did he tell us? BECAUSE HE WANTS TO LOOK GOOD IN THE EYES OF THE FANS.

There is no way this guy cried and sat home for 2 weeks eating delivery pizza. NO WAY. And that's ok. Just don't lie about it. Sheesh!

Again, I respect his game, but this image he' trying to cultivate is fraudulent.

I agree - I think he stood home and ate DiGiorno's Pizza instead....
