10:34 AM ET 07.14 | Finally, Derrick Rose' left knee wasn't the main topic of conversation for Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Speaking to the media on Saturday for the first time since lead assistant coach and close friend Ron Adams was let go, Thibodeau did his best to dismiss the idea there's a rift between him and general manager Gar Forman. "No, we're fine," Thibodeau said before the Bulls played the Memphis Grizzlies in their first NBA Summer League game. It was convincing enough to quiet the speculation for now, but Thibodeau didn't sound thrilled by Adams' removal. "As I tell our players, I tell everyone, we're not looking backwards, we're looking ahead, and we're getting ready for next season," Thibodeau said. "That's all we're thinking about." Asked if he felt good about where he and Forman are, Thibodeau said, "Yeah. We're getting ready for next season. We want to be a championship-caliber team, and that's all we're thinking about."

I don't know why they haven't locked him up , long term alreadyhe's easily a top 2-3 coach in the league.his only flaw is he needs to cut back come of the guys minutes in the reg season, but otherwise, I can't recall a coach truly getting more out of his players talent than he does.

He signed a four year extension April 4th, 2013.

Can you get Rose "mentally ready" to play, bro? Nothing else matters.
