In just a few hours, Derrick Rose will return to the NBA. This is not a drill. REPEAT: this is NOT a drill. At 6 p.m. central time, the Chicago Bulls will tip off against the Indiana Pacers, and the 2011 NBA MVP will be there on the court.
It’s hard to overstate how exciting this is, even though it’s a relatively meaningless preseason game. It’s been about a year and a half since we last saw Mr. Rose on the court. It almost doesn’t matter whether he plays well or not, since it’s just preseason and just seeing him out there is good enough for me.
Only five and a half hours, folks.
