As most know I Steven Rummage am an avid Chicago Bulls fan. I have family that lives in Chicago and always watched the Bulls and the great Michael Jordan growing up. The Bulls went through some hard times but when they won the Lottery in 2008 and selected hometown boy Derrick Rose all hope had been restored. Rose had led the Bulls back to the top seed and looked as though an NBA Title could come in the near future, but then the unthinkable happened: Rose tore his ACL.
As I watched and seen the Bulls hope go down the drain I told most thats ok if the Bulls stay in contention next year he will be back by playoff time! Well fast forward to playoff time the Bulls are down and guess what NO DERRICK ROSE!! Surely something went wrong with his rehab right!? Ohh no folks he was cleared a month ago!! What!? Well in honor of Derrick Rose attempting to crush my dreams lets look at events that have happened “Since Derrick Rose tore his ACL”
