D-Rose and The Bulls

Derrick Rose is one of the elite point guards in the NBA today. His ability to get to the basket and dish out assists is extraordinary. What separates him though from other top-notch point guards? The answer is simple; his explosiveness is like no other player in the league.

Rose is so quick off the dribble and can accelerate to the basket at will. To complement Rose’s explosiveness, is his extreme dexterity. Rose is capable of duking out big men like Amar’e Stoudemire in midair while still finishing gracefully at the basket. To make matters worse for the opposing team, Rose has added a lethal jump shot to his offensive arsenal. Rose currently averages 1.6 3s per game which is literally 8 times the amount as what he did last year from 3 pt land. Aside from Rose’s ability to shoot and score, he has also shown he is capable of being an efficient passer averaging 8.1 assists per game. Throughout the season thus far Derrick Rose has been able to create open shots for his teammates.

In addition, Rose has also been helped tremendously by the Bulls off season move to acquire Carlos Boozer. Boozer has become a valuable asset to Rose’s passing game and together they lead their team with a record of 25-12. Rose has a very good all around game as well as being able to average nearly 5 rebounds per game. Rose has carried his team this season, and are now one of the top teams in the East. Although the Bulls are one of the better teams in the league they are not quite championship material for they lack a shooting guard and young Derrick Rose still needs to develop his game for the Bulls to have a shot at winning the championship.
