The longer the Chicago Bulls stay alive in the NBA playoffs, the louder the clamoring will grow for the return of their injured budding superstar, Derrick Rose. Before the din becomes overwhelming, critics should remember the story of an injured budding superstar of another era: Grant Hill.
The Chicago Bulls’ chances of capturing their first National Basketball Association title since the Michael Jordan era tumbled after reigning Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose suffered a season-ending injury.
Derrick Rose was chosen as the youngest Most Valuable Player in National Basketball Association history after leading the Chicago Bulls to the best record in the regular season while averaging 25 points per game.
Derrick Rose capped his first home game in more than a season by hitting a short baseline jump shot with five seconds left to give the Chicago Bulls an 82-81 National Basketball Association win against the New York Knicks.
The New York Knicks beat the Chicago Bulls 100-99 in overtime as Carmelo Anthony scored a season-high 43 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 8.2 seconds left to spoil the return of Derrick Rose.
