Derrick Rose, The Chicago Bulls MVP point guard, hurt his knee in round one of the first round of the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. This was a huge impact on their hopes of an NBA title because they felt that this was their year. After Rose went down so did their chances of that title, the season was over.

He knows it will be hard but looks forward to making his RETURN.
