It's time to celebrate the Bulls' biggest offseason acquisition. And similar to the LeBron James saga, you can cue the "I'm Coming Home" music because he's finally returning to Chicago.
His name is Derrick Rose, and he wasn't traded for or signed as a free agent. We didn't have to trade half our team to get him or use half our available cap space to sign him or let him pick his own coach or make sure his family was comfortable with not being in L.A. or New York.
He wasn't wined or dined, and to my knowledge, he hasn't tweeted anything or nobody has tweeted anything about him.
Wow. This is so boring! We need to trade this guy!
No. He's back, according to reports out of the Team USA camp in Las Vegas. Yes, I know it's too early for craziness. Please pardon my boredom. It's August, both baseball teams are out of it and Bears are still weeks away from games that count.
So yeah, I'll take it. And here's hoping he comes back stronger than ever, sticking it to every couch-sitting, checkered shirt-wearing expert who speculated on how good he'd be.
As for Kevin Love, it's so neat the Bulls made that offer. And you know what? Keep him, Minnesota. I like our guys. I love how all these guys are considered so great, but no one has ever bothered to teach them defense during their NBA careers.
No, the only place that's done that is in places like San Antonio and Chicago.
Again, I say. We'll play with what we have.
As will everyone else in town. I see the Cubs were active at the deadline, to which I ask, "Who's left over there?"
At least they did something. The White Sox didn't because, you know, they don't have anything anybody would want. Picture Rick Hahn calling rival GMs and going "Hey, did you just call me? Sorry, I thought you did. Hey, how's it going?"
And of course the Sox are back in "tease" mode. Don't fall for this semi-hot streak, either.
