To the dismay of many Bulls fans Derrick Rose said in his USA today interview published February 13th, that he wouldn’t mind sitting out the whole season. He said he wants to be 110% before he returns and according to his estimation he’s only 80%. This comes as a little bit of shock to Bulls fans who have been suffering for nearly 10 months waiting for Rose’s return. Prior to the interview various Bulls insider and Coach Thibs said that Rose was taking part in full contact practice. The thought behind full court practice is that if he can practice he can play, so what’s the holdup?!

Once I wiped away my tears  after realizing that Derrick won’t be returning, I came to my senses and realized what all was at stake. Derrick is the face of one of the most popular franchises in the NBA, and he is also…

HOUSTON  (AP)   Many of the fathers in this year’s crop of All-Stars brought their children along as they moved through Saturday’s jam-packed schedule.

Several members of both teams had their sons and daughters with them as they met with the media before practice for Sunday night’s game.

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, with his young son Kiyan on his lap, lit up when asked what it meant for him to share this weekend with his boy.

“This is for him,” he said. “We do this for our kids and our family. Of course we enjoy it, but we want them to enjoy it. That’s why we bring them up here and try to do as much as possible with them. This is something that they’ll never forget.”

Kiyan, who wore a Knicks shirt and oversized baseball cap with the word “EAST” on it, was quiet the entire time…

Clyde Drexler, Dikembe Mutombo, Hakeem Olajuwon, Rudy Tomjanovich, and Yao Ming will serve as judges in the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk (8pm ET, TNT), the NBA announced today.  The five Houston Rockets legends will score all of the dunks in the first round (the Team Round) of the event.

Drexler played 15 seasons for the Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers, was a 10-time NBA All-Star, a two-time NBA Champion with the Rockets, enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 2004, and was a member of the 1992 USA Basketball Dream Team.  Mutombo, who played the final five seasons of his 18-year career with the Rockets, was a four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, an eight-time NBA All-Star, and currently serves as an NBA Global Ambassador.  Olajuwon is a two-time NBA Champion with the Rockets (1994 and 1995), a 12-time NBA All-Star, was named the 1993-94 NBA Most Valuable Player…

USA Today recently reported that Derrick Rose hasn’t played a game since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in April during the opener of the 2012 NBA playoffs, but I predict he’ll be back stronger and better than ever. I’ve made this prediction not only because of all the hard work he is putting into his rehabilitation but also because of an event that took place in his life last October 9th, 2012: The birth of his new son, Derrick Rose, Jr. “Everything stopped when he was born,” Rose said, “I try to spoil him as much as possible, not only with material stuff but just being around him with love and support – letting him I know that I will always be there.” When he returns to the game, Derrick will be happy and his life will definitely be in harmony. That’s why I believe he…

My favorite season of the year? Basketball season. Last year both my teams (aka Murray State Racers and Kentucky Wildcats) were powerhouses in basketball. But that also meant the key players either graduated (Donte Poole, Jewuan Long, Darius Miller) or were drafted to the NBA (Doron Lamb, Terrence Jones, Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist… I don’t mention Teague because I did NOT think he was a good point guard). There are so many things I can say about UK vs. Tennessee and Murray vs. EIU that I don’t know where to begin. I guess I’ll have to start with the Wildcats.

I did not get to see the entire game, but from what I did see I was very disappointed. Granted the Cats just lost Nerlens Noel, who was a clutch player for them on the defensive end. Any time our boy Nerlens was out on the bench, the remaining players…
