NBA MVP Derek Rose went down during the first round of the playoffs last year with a torn ACL, dashing the hopes of all Chicago Bulls fans. Chicago instantly went from a potential title contender to a first round playoff exit against the number eight seed Philadelphia 76ers. To say that was disappointing would be a gigantic understatement. Rose's potential return date is targeted as sometime next March, although no one really knows yet for sure if he'll be able to return earlier (or even later?) If Rose can't come back from his rehab at 100% in a timely manner, it will be a completely lost season for the promising Bulls squad. And even worse, their title contention window could be closing sooner than anyone would have ever imagined.
To give Bulls fans hope, Adidas is producing a video series chronicling Rose’s return to the court. Here's a trailer for the video series. Perhaps not all is yet lost:
