Derrick Rose Right or Wrong?

Is Derrick Rose the bad guy if he doesn’t return this post season? A lot of Chicago Bulls fans have mixed feelings about Rose not returning and helping the Bulls in their playoff push. Derrick Rose tore his ACL in his left knee April 28 of last years’ playoffs. It usually takes a player 7-8 months to return from such an injury. In seven days it will be a full year from when the injury happened. With all of the technology advances and great doctors that I’m sure Rose has, I believe that his time is past due. I had the same injury a couple summers ago and recovered fine after about 8 months. But then again not everyone recovers the same. Maybe Rose knows something about his body that everyone doesn’t. After everything that Rose has done for the city of Chicago and for the Bulls organization, wouldn’t you think he has the right to come back whenever he feels? A coupe days ago Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was asked about Rose returning this post season and replied with, “He’s most likely out but you never know, the playoffs are stretched out, too, so you have to factor that in. So who knows another week from now where he is? You always want to leave that possibility open.”
So people, in your thoughts, is it time for Derrick Rose to finally come back and help his team compete and give the Bull’s fans and N.B.A. fans what they want? Or has Rose earned the right to come back when he feels he is 100% and ready?
