ROSE GRATEFUL FOR THE IMPROVEMENT IN HIS KNEE
Wed, 19 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Derrick Rose couldn’t hold it in.

He had just seen a video clip of himself tearing the ACL in his left knee and then rehabilitating the injury. He was questioned about his fans’ support and the feelings came pouring out, a stream of tears and heartfelt appreciation. His voice cracked as he answered.

”It’s actually a blessing with all of the stuff that is going on in the city,” declared Rose, a product of the hard Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. ”A kid from Englewood’s got something positive going on. That makes me feel so great. … To have my true fans, that means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to my family.”

It has not been the best time for the Chicago Bulls’ star. Even so, he can see the improvement.

Rose says his surgically repaired knee is getting better and he started jumping ”a couple days ago,” another step in his recovery. He’s rehabilitating 5 days each week in an effort to return this season after that devastating injury.

Rose spoke at an exposing of his new shoe and apparel line. The 35-minute session was controlled by a company executive, and he didn’t take questions about basketball from the media. But the video got to him.

Rose tore the ACL late in the Bulls’ playoff-opening win over Philadelphia, a huge problem that sent them spiraling toward a first-round exit after capturing the top seed in the East. The injury is expected to keep him out for a major chunk of the season. And even if he returns, it remains to be seen when or maybe if he’ll regain the explosiveness that made him one of the game’s best players.

Derrick Rose has been rehabilitating in California. That figures to change with training camp starting in 2 weeks, but the results so far have been good. Odds

Derrick Rose still experiences some soreness in his leg, but he sees the strides.

Rose also endorsed his team, even though it’ll have a different look.

Not only will the Chicago Bulls be missing their star for much of the season, the supposed ”Bench Mob” is basically no more. Kyle Korver, Omer Asik, C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer are gone. In their place are vets Kirk Hinrich, Nate Robinson and Nazr Mohammed, and there was Rose insisting the Bulls shouldn’t be written off.

”That’s my only target is to win a championship,” Rose recounted. ”Hopefully, it’s soon. I’m going to put my heart into it, whatever I do off and on the court. With the team that we have now, we’ve got a good chance. We have got a good shot with the players that we have coming in. With the players that we lost, I’m definitely going to miss them. But it’s a business 1st and you’re not going to have the same people every year. The players that we’ve got and the coaches that we have we’re just going to have to make do and go out and try to win a championship.”
