INDIANAPOLIS – This so-called feel-good story permeating the Chicago Bulls through the first eight days of the preseason – Derrick Rose coming back from 17 or 47 months away, off doing surgery rehab or covert operations or whatever – has a flip side, of course.
For the Bulls, their fans and basketball enthusiasts in general, it’s a terrific thing, the return of their star and leader. For rival teams and folks in cities where Rose (gasp!) gets booed, another season or two sitting out – to make really, really sure his left knee was healed – would have been just fine.
