Derrick Rose Shows off Explosiveness, Athleticism on Drives to Hoop vs. Bucks

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJanuary 6, 2016

As the 2015-16 NBA season nears the midway point, the Chicago Bulls have to like what they're seeing from their franchise player.

Derrick Rose is looking like the Derrick Rose of old.

On two separate drives to the hoop against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, the Bulls point guard looked like vintage Rose. In other words, the former NBA MVP's explosiveness and athleticism were on full display.

If Rose stays healthy and continues to make plays like these, Chicago will be a tough out come playoff time.
