07:03 AM ET 05.13 | When it comes to the math on Derrick Rose's recovery, it's important to note the clock didn't start ticking on the date of his injury. [The] eight-to-12 month recovery timetable given by Bulls team physician Dr. Brian Cole related to the date of his surgery. Rose's torn knee ligament was repaired last May 12, which was a year ago Sunday. ... Despite erroneous reports that he was set to dress for Game 3, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, the former league MVP won't return to the court in the series, something [Tom Thibodeau] is aware of. However, at the outset of the second round, Rose did strongly consider coming back, but ultimately decided against it, another source said.

yep...it must be nice watching your teammates kill themselves trying to get a win while you sit on the bench in your 3 piece with a healthy knee.

Agree....Unless you live in Chicago, the VAST majority of us are extremely disappointed in his non-actions

I think he was overrated for the get go and now he's realizing he can't live up the hype.. he may be fake like his SAT score... even STAT with back to back surgeries comes back to play.

Rose: "I thought about coming back, but this team has WAY too much heart for me."

Jordan would never have pulled this.......

other than when he voluntarily left his teammates hanging for two years so he could feed his ego. But no other MVP's would act this way! :)

I'm in with this line of thinking too.

I've lost a lot of respect for Derrick Rose. He has shown that he has so much less heart than his teammates, who are busting their butts trying to challenge a healthier, deeper, champtionship-winning opponent. Rose has been cleared to play for MONTHS now. And when his teammates needed him most, he refused to help them.

Brother just needs to keep his trap shut.

Bad comparison. Jordan wasn't on the roster still eating up cap space.

That would be a good point if Mick had commented on the money, but everyone seems to be questioning his drive compared to the greats.

Just trying to stay on point.

You're talking about the unamed sources, correct? Because I didn't catch any quote from Rose in the excerpt.

Jordan was driven to try something else. Then he was driven to come back to basketball and win 3 more titles.It's really not a good comparison because when he was on the roster Jordan played.

Here's my thing - the only opinions that matters are the guys in that locker room with him. If they we saying they wanted him back and questioning him, I would immediately switch to the "Rose should play" side.
But until then, I assume they have far more knowledge on the situation than I do, and are far better suited to make a determination on if Rose should be playing.

But for the sake of message boards, I do understand it makes for great discussion :)


......hater.

QUOTE(#15):

The only mistake Rose makes is hanging with the team during warmups and dunking and shooting and leaving everyone thinking he may be ready. If he would have shut himself down and said he's not able this season everyone would have respected that. But just keeping himself out there getting attention when he's not ready to help his struggling team is not a good look.He could be doing his shooting and dunking back in the practice gym instead of out there in front of the cameras, fans and media. So he deserves some blame for this.

I can agree with that.

He gets a complete pass on this if he ends up coming back though. In my totally unbaised opinion.

Surgery can repair his knees Unfortunately there's nothing that can be done if a player has no balls.
