this is one of the stupidest arguments i've ever seen by some of the people on this board. you really get an idea of the people who have no fricking clue what they are talking about in this thread.
the kid blew out his knee 9 months ago. 9 months.
The Bulls are securely in the playoffs with the 4th/5th seed, but they aren't a contender this year with or without Rose for the rest of the season. Chicago needs to realize that. it isn't happening this year, be patient. a major knee injury is about 70% mental and 30% physical. A superior athlete like Rose can have his knee in condition in 8-9 months, but he will be playing on this same knee for the rest of his career. that weighs heavily on his mind and will always be sitting there in the back of his mind.
the Bulls doctors don't know shite. This is his knee, his career, and his life. If he feels it isn't ready, it would be stupid to risk it for a selfish fanbase and a 4th or 5th seed team with no shot at a title. The kid needs to ignore the dumbasses in Chicago and dumbasses like here on the MSB. Don't make the mistake of coming back too soon and it affecting the rest of your career.
i like how 3-6 months ago all these chicago and random other fans across the country are all about showing their support and love for DRose as he recovers from surgery and begins therapy. Now that he is close to being back but wants more time to ensure he is fully healthy.....they are blasting him.
