5)  Rose Named to All-Star Team

Derrick Rose represented the Bulls in an All-Star game fot the first time since Michael Jordan did in 1998.

It may not seem like a big deal to some people, the All-Star game is every year. The amount of times players travel to the All-Star game each year seems like a trivia question rather than a real accomplishment. That changes when you haven’t been represented in the All-Star game in over 10 years. The last time the Chicago Bulls had an All-Star was when that All-Star was Michael Jordan. That is, until Derrick Rose was voted to the All-Star team as a reserve.

This represents more than merely then just having an All-Star and having it be cool, it represents the changing of the guard. Not the changing of the guard from the Jordan years, the changing of the guard from a really bad Bulls team to a really, really good one. It illustrates perfectly the situation the Bulls have been in since 1998, they haven’t had that face of the franchise. When people think Chicago Bulls, they think Michael Jordan. Now, when they say Chicago Bulls they are starting to say Michael Jordan…oh and Derrick Rose. That’s a giant leap forward for the Bulls and makes the future look very bright.

    Derrick Rose is better than Rondo, he should be leading the NBA voting. It’s not a question.

      Rose is way better but everyone who barely follows the NBA is either a Celtics, Lakers or Heat fan, thus when they vote it’s a crooked result. Rose will get his time, for now I’m happy with him winning games for us. A championship in Chicago is more important to me than national recognition at the All-Star game.
