Derrick Rose and The Chicago Bulls Reassuring Situation

Derrick Rose crosses the dim lit tunnel all the way to the bright lights of the United Center Arena in Chicago. His teammates are moving together with him as they approached the loud cheers and praises of the home town crowd.

It was always Derrick’s dream to walk where the Michael Jordan-led Bulls have gone through. Those championships, the MVP awards and the celebrations it all came through this tunnel. It seems to be the first step before the endearing bright lights of the arena. Everybody goes through here.

The road to the championship is quite special. It is a narrow path that only a few would dare to enter. Rose knew it would take a lot of sacrifices and frustration before he gets to hold the Larry O’Brien golden trophy. There are no shortcuts and no easy pass. Winning a championship will take a lot of hard work and maturity. It took Michael Jordan years before he won his first title but nonetheless, Rose is just glad they are on the right direction.

With all the talks about Lebron James joining the Chicago Bulls last summer or Dwayne Wade. Rose just stayed passive about the situation. A player with such an amazing ability with Lebron or Wade could surely give the Bulls a needed lift. However, he doesn’t want to keep his hopes high considering that everything is all about money. He wanted dedication and commitment. If they believed in the organization then you don’t have to sell yourself too much to them. Basketball is still a team game. No two or three superstars could win a championship alone.

Derrick Rose knows before the bright lights everything goes through the dim lit portion. There are no shortcuts and no easy pass. However, what is reassuring is that every time Rose looks back or looks forward to he has his teammates with him. It’s good to know they all went on the same direction.

He got his back and he definitely got Chicago behind him.
