Na, he won't need to sidekick anyone. This Bulls team is playing quite well without him and he could be the guy that puts them over the top. The problem the Bulls had in 2011 is that they were too reliant on Rose and his FG percentage suffered as a result. Now that guys like Deng have proven they can carry an offense in his absense, they shouldn't be as reliant on him when he comes back this year.
It's not a matter of if Rose will get his ring. It's a matter of when. He's still only 24, and the Heat andSpurs will eventually disamantle when Duncan retires and when Miami will be forced to break up their team due to luxury tax restraints.
Rose is not ever going to be the best player on a team that wins a ring. Not unless it is like that Pistons team where it was debatable who the best player was and they were just real deep. The reason why Chicago is doing good now is the same reason why they were doing good when Rose won that writers voting award--They had the best rebounding in the league and the best interior defense in the league. You could plug in a lot of guys in the Rose role and that guy wins the MVP because the team wins 62 games or whatever and that guy is the leading scorer on that team. His MVP was as much a product of having the great rebounding/defense coupled with having basically no other perimeter scorer/playmaker to speak of.Obviously living on the west coast you don't have a clue about Bulls basketball.
You should take your own advice.
You can't win a championship with Rose as your best player.
Obviously living on the west coast you don't have a clue about Bulls basketball.
How about we just ask Thibs himself who his best player was in 2011.
Using this same logic, since the Knicks are build around defense, Carmelo Anthony isn't the team's best player simply because defense isn't his specialty. I guess Allen Iverson's 2001 MVP was also a fraud since that team was also largely based on defense. Not that I liked either of those players, I have the ability to put my hatred aside and realize that facts.
You too need to grow up and let your Rose hatred go.
I don't think you can determine that quite yet. This will be his 5th season in the NBA. He's still a young player with plenty of time to improve his game which is already pretty good. He led the Bulls to the ECF in his 3rd season.
You should take your own advice....Yet you have yet to bring anything positive to our CBS community. Go back the so-called "Heat-Haters" thread and continue with your groundless trash talk with the Miami trolls.
We probably shouldn't waste our time with Zags and tfitz. They are unable to talk about Rose objectively. It's like they're obligated to pass the legacy of their BFF kmvenne and his hatred of Rose now that he no longer posts here.What you say when you cannot counter an argument.
So basically if I don't think Rose is good enough to be the best guy on a championship team then I "hate" him.My point exactly, considering he's still just 24 and has already taken a team to 61 wins.
What you say when you cannot counter an argument.What's there to counter? All tfitz and Zags did was make a groundless claim that Rose can never lead a team to a championship in spite of the fact he's only been in the league five years. Jordan took seven to get his first title, and LeBron took nine. Go back to your other thread, rodent.
