Bulls guard Derrick Rose has harnessed quickness, wants to be more vocal

Derrick Rose admits that there were times when he didn’t know what he was doing on an NBA court. That didn’t stop him from being named MVP in 2011 and leading the Bulls to the Eastern Conference finals. So two knee surgeries later, what will his hometown fans see when Rose takes the court Saturday night at the United Center for Team USA? “My game is totally different,’’ Rose said Friday. “When I came back last time, I was just trying to get into a...

Derrick Rose: 'My game is totally different'

CHICAGO -- Mike Krzyzewski chuckled Friday when the topic of Derrick Rose's "role" on Team USA came up. With Paul George out of commission because of a gruesome leg injury and Kevin Durant leaving the team, Rose is expected to have more offensive responsibilities for Team USA as it gets set to face off against the Brazil on Saturday night at the United Center. In Krzyzewski's mind, though, not much has changed as far as Rose's game goes. "Derrick's role is easy to play, easy to work (with)," the Hall of Fame coach said.

Derrick Rose on injuries: ‘I have no fears — I have faith’

That “new beginning’’ that Derrick Rose harped on a few weeks ago in Las Vegas? It definitely continued to be tested on Thursday. Just a few minutes into the latest Team USA intrasquad scrimmage at the Quest MultiSport Complex in Chicago, there laid the massive body of Sacramento big man DeMarcus Cousins reeling in pain and clutching his right knee. Rose took the basketball, calmly moved to the other side of the basketball court as trainers surrounded Cousins,...

Derrick Rose, Team USA to play exhibition vs. Brazil at the UC

It was more than a simple endorsement. Asked in Las Vegas two weeks ago about Derrick Rose, Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski was searching for adjectives. He couldn’t find enough superlatives. This weekend, Bulls fans will get their first look at the hype when Rose and the U.S. national team resume training in Chicago for the FIBA World Cup and play an exhibition Saturday night against Brazil at the United Center. All eyes will be on Rose, who has played in only 10...

2014-15 schedule: 10 games to watch

Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls are gearing up for one of the most hyped seasons in recent memory. Coach Tom Thibodeau's team enters the season with a legitimate chance to contend for a title depending on Rose's health. The eyes of the basketball world will be focused on Rose as he tries to make his way back from a second serious knee injury. With that in mind, let's take a look at 10 of the most intriguing games on the Bulls' 2014-15 schedule, which was released Wednesday: Bulls at New York Knicks, Oct.

Bigger Team USA role should benefit Rose

Tom Thibodeau spoke with a sense of relief during Team USA's training camp in Las Vegas two weeks ago. The Chicago Bulls head coach and Team USA assistant was ecstatic that Derrick Rose was back on the floor and performing at a high level and playing with the same speed and explosiveness that he had shown before his first knee injury in April 2012. But most importantly, Thibodeau was relieved because he knew that Rose wasn't going to have to be "the man" on a talented USA team as he takes the next step in his comeback from a torn meniscus suffered in November 2013.

Lillard continues to learn from Rose

As far as the calendar is concerned, Derrick Rose, 25, is only a year and almost three months older than Damian Lillard, but the Chicago Bulls superstar is much older in professional basketball years. Rose is entering his seventh season in the league while Lillard, the Portland Trail Blazers star point guard, is coming into just his third year. The pair will reunite beginning Thursday in Chicago as part of the continuation of Team USA's training camp as it prepares for the World Cup of Basketball in Spain later this month.

Derrick Rose needs to play with Team USA

MORRISSEY: The leg bone in question is Paul George’s. And if you had the misfortune of seeing it do unnatural things during Team USA’s scrimmage Aug. 1, imagine being George, who might miss the 2014-15 season because of the sickening injury. But it’s no reason to keep Rose under lock and key.

Kevin Love trade to Cleveland changes little for Bulls

As far as Derrick Rose was concerned, little has changed. The addition of Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers roster on Thursday? Obviously a great piece, but in Rose’s world, and more specifically the world he shares with his Bulls teammates, not a flinch. “For us I don’t think it will change anything,’’ Rose said last week, when asked about the pending Love-to-Cleveland rumors that were building momentum. “We know that no matter who we play that we...

Derrick Rose among 16 finalists for Team USA

It hasn’t been a bad way for Derrick Rose to spend a summer so far. After tearing up rookies and youngsters in Summer League practices with the Bulls in June, Rose’s return took another step forward when USA Basketball chief Jerry Colangelo announced Tuesday that Rose was one of 16 finalists for Team USA’s World Cup roster. Twelve players will make the team that will compete in the tournament, which begins late this month in Spain. ‘‘In Derrick’s case,...

Derrick Rose makes 1st cut for Team USA World Cup roster

John Wall was the first point guard cut as the roster now stands at 16. The Derrick Rose optimism has been overwhelming since the start of Team USA training camp last week, with everybody from Rose to Coach K to Andre Drummond talking about how great everything is going: @drose is a Ferrari amongst Hondas.... — Andre Drummond (@AndreDrummondd) August 3, 2014 The horrific Paul George injury marred the Team USA scrimmage on Friday, overshadowing what was a rather impressive showing by Rose. I wasn't able to pay too close attention to the scrimmage, but I did see the first few minutes...
