I’m telling you Derrick Rose is important to the future of the NBA and the Chicago Bulls, and fans obviously want to see more of him out on the court! After the third returns came in for the All-Star voting, Rose once again came in 3rd place for the backourt in the Eastern Conference. Dwayne Wade (Miami Heat) was 1st and Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers) was 2nd.
In third returns of All-Star voting, Rose is 3rd in backcourt. Noah is 7th and Boozer 12th in frontcourt. Deng, that Cavs guy, is 11th.

Looks like the fans don’t get the memo that Rose is still injured and currently recovering from a torn medial meniscus on his right knee. After missing the 2013 NBA All-Star game I guess the fans (including myself) just couldn’t accept the fact that Rose would be sitting out for this one too. After all, the last All-Star game Rose played in was in 2012 (and where in the year 2014, that’s a long time for the fans to wait!) It’s a good thing there’s still some loyal fans of Rose out there, still rooting for him and patently (some of us) waiting for his return to the basketball court once again! In the meantime it seems like Rose is taking the right approach to his rehab and his spirits are in the right place! #TheReturn2
Boozer on DRose: “Great attitude, strong in his Faith, working his butt off in his rehab, enjoying his family, enjoying his son.”
