Derrick Rose Probably Won’t Be Back in the 2012-2013 Season, So What’s That Mean?

After  watching Derrick Rose grab an MVP trophy last year and wondering if the Bulls were just a player away from the championship, Bulls fans are pondering whether their best player will ever be the same player again.

The doctors will say Derrick Rose will recover in about a year. I think that means he can safely play basketball again. But will he be the 6’3 version of LeBron?

Eh-eh. I really don’t think that’s fathomable considering how long it took Chris Paul to return to himself. But, I do think we will see Rose at his peak powers again, just not in the 2012-2013 season.

And by that logic, the 2012-2013 season is a turning point for this franchise and maybe the end of a brief era of regular season success. If Derrick does come back in April of next year, do the Bulls have a realistic shot at a title with the fifth or fourth seed and an out-of-shape Rose?

No and no. Some have suggested that the Bulls will need to blow the whole thing up. I don’t entertain the idea because it’s really not in anyone’s DNA—John Paxson, Tom Thibodeau and Derrick Rose’s, nor the rest of the squad.

And seeing the Bulls of the early 2000s and the Charlotte Bobcats of this year, tanking the season isn’t a surefire strategy. Good people leave, fans do too and then you’re left with a  hope of the top draft pick who can be, well, another point guard, given the recent trends in the NBA (see Derrick Rose, John Wall and Kyrie Irving).

We know the Bulls will try to take another go at it again next season, and I probably would too given that the 
Bulls are capped out and even an amnestied Carlos Boozer doesn’t give you a lot of flexibility, but they’ll have to trade some of their top assets in Omer Asik or Taj Gibson to even make them relevant.

But who for whom? I don’t know.

But the status quo won’t amount to a championship and nothing else matters.
