As disappointing as Thursday night’s loss is, this is still a Chicago Bulls team that has a lot of potential to contend for NBA Titles for many years to come. But for that to happen, the Bulls need to get league MVP Derrick Rose some scoring help.
After the Chicago Bulls lost to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday night, the consensus seems to be that if they had one more perimeter scorer, that they could have enough firepower to knock off the Heat.
Just over a week ago, Derrick Rose was named the youngest Most Valuable Player in the history for the NBA. On Thursday, the league announced that he has also been named to the All-NBA First Team.
Back in September, Derrick Rose asked a simple question: “why can’t I be the MVP of the league?” On Tuesday, the Bulls third-year point guard officially became the youngest Most Valuable Player in the NBA’s history.
Despite being the only player in the NBA ranked in the top 10 in points and assists per game, there may still be some debate to whether or not Derrick Rose has established himself as the MVP of the league.
The Chicago Bulls have already clinched the top seed in the East, but that didn’t stop them from playing at full performance Sunday. The Bulls beat Orlando with Derrick Rose leading with 39 points.
Friday ,the Bulls defeated the Orlando Magic and Dwight Howard received his 16th technical foul of the season.
The Chicago Bulls signed free agent Rasual Butler on Thursday. With long standing rumors now in the past, the Bulls can focus on trying to catch the Boston Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
Derrick Rose spent a lot of time on the perimeter, showing signs of pain while the Chicago Bulls took on the Orlando Magic. Despite the pain, Rose helped keep the Bulls ahead to win.
Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference will battle on Friday night on Chicago’s west side. Derrick Rose will lead the Chicago Bulls against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
Ok, that’s three now. Three times Derrick Rose has launched himself skyward in an NBA game, only to have his flight altered at its peak, causing a crash to the unforgiving floor.
Carlos Boozer’s long awaited Bulls debut could happen tonight, when the Bulls take the United Center floor to play Dwight Howard and the Magic.
