    This video is making the rounds these days. It's just one clip but it just shows how ridiculously athletic Bill Russell was.

    RIP Craigos

    Nothing's official yet but he did mention that he's not a 100% ready and he won't come back unless he is. I'm predicting that he'll miss the season, which might be the best thing, but I hear good things regarding his 5-on-5 drills. Basically, us fans have suspected since the beginning of the season that his chances of playing this season are slim to none, but the media had been speculating that he'll return around AS break for some reason which is what's causing the confusion. Bulls management or Rose himself have never given a timetable. He'll be back when he'll be back.

    As stupid as it sounds to say, the reason is Adrian Peterson.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Oh yeah I had forgotten about that injury comparison that ESPN was beating to death. AP finally came out and said himself that it's literally a completely different ball game. You put a lot more stress on your knee in basketball and you do it more often than once a week. I was surprised by the first part, but I'm paraphrasing what he said. Nick Friedel, who is an annoying ****, really tries his best to instigate the fans regarding the injury by comparing Rose to AP, Shumpert, and even Rubio, basically implying that the bulls management isn't telling us the full story. Well of course they're not, because of ****s like you! And I for one am fine with that.

    Interestingly enough the local radio guys (Carmen, Yerko, and Harry, and Waddle/Silvy) have a much better perspective on this and they keep pointing out that no two injuries are the same, and that the others who came back from their injuries earlier aren't expected to carry the load Rose is.

    Perfect example today of why I want this drama to end ASAP. Rose missed a practice today and Vecsey tweets

    Derrick Rose did not show up for practice today. Sources say management is putting pressure on him to play. Feels he's not mentally ready
    and everyone starts crying about Rose being a pussy. Hours later

    Rafer Weigel ‏@RaferWeigel

    Tweets that Derrick Rose missed practice unexcused disputed by #Bulls. Team reps say @DRose was excused for a Dentist's appointment.
    Then Nick Friedel, who's usually on my bad side

    Conspiracy theorists will love this but Thibs said team didn't do much at all and most guys just shot. Said Derrick's status hasn't changed.
    Makes sense why he'd pick such a day to take care of an appointment. Getting real tired of this ****.

    Why have half the Eastern Conference playoff suddenly stopped playing basket ball. This everybody lost so the race for 4th seed stays as is...

    Oh man. I was sweating bullets at the end there. What a game.

    I just love this ****ing team. They don't know how to give up. I like this version of Boozer that shows up against Miami. Captain Kirk is so underrated.

    I know they had injuries and broke the streak and all, but the way the players celebrated that game was a bit ridiculous. You won a single game in March, not the championship.
