Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls: Hypothetical Week 3 Review

Rose and Deng

Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls should have been in action for fans to watch during Week 3 of the 2011-2012 regular season.  But, due to the ongoing NBAlockout, fans have been left watching Coach Mike Krzyzewski make history and hearing about NBA players who are considering playing overseas.

Instead of watching the Bulls play the Washington Wizards and the duel of Rose vs. John Wall, fans were left to watch the current Kentucky Wildcats beat the Kansas Jayhawks.

Instead of watching the Bulls play the Portland Trail Blazers, fans were left to watch Rudy Fernandez drop 14 points on Anadolu Efes as Real Madrid cruised to the win in the Euroleague.

Instead of watching the Bulls play the Phoenix Suns, fans were left to watch "the next Steve Nash" in Kevin Pangos at Gonzaga.

Instead of watching the Bulls play the Los Angeles Clippers for the second time this season, fans were left to watch Blake Griffin vs. Kevin Love in an intense game of Jenga.

Add to this the fact that Luol Deng was reported to be considering heading overseas during the extended lockout and this was a miserable week for Bulls fans.

So, without having any real games to report on, this is a hypothetical review of what could have been in Week 3, if billionaires and millionaires had been able to compromise and the season had started on time.
