A lot of the players who should be important to this team are trending downwards, but it's always good to end a prediction with positive news. That good news comes in the status of Derrick Rose.
After a long media hiatus, Rose has finally broken his silence. For the first time, Rose created a Twitter account. In his fourth tweet, and on Facebook, Rose messaged an image of himself shooting around in the gym with a shirt with his new logo on it. The new logo consists of a three-petaled rose with a D and 1 in the middle, to represent his three brothers and his mother.
Rose also broke his silence in an interview with Slam Magazine that was posted on YouTube. In it he told the world that he was 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule already. He also revealed that he can resume basketball workouts in three weeks, 12 weeks overall after surgery.
Every piece of news that comes out about Rose has been positive, not that I would expect anything less from the 6'3" guard who vaulted his way to becoming the MVP of the league. It is clear he is working hard and is moving quickly. He will be back to full strength before we know it.
