I wonder how serious some of these Bulls fans are.... you do know you are basically comparing an injured Steve Francis/Stephon Marbury to a player of Magic/Bird/Jordan magnitude at his absolute peak right?

Rose only at his own position will have to first be better than right now Westbrook, Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams etc. (Curry?) and then take on Kobe, Carmelo, then Durant... and THEN Lebron...

Cute pix. All of us in Chicago had that starter Bulls jacket, and outfit.

LeBron is the player Rose can't be.

Rose is the MAN and the competitor LeBron's soft ass can't be.

Derrick isn't bouncing on his hometown and loved ones. Too much competitor in him to do that. Too much pride in his home.

This is such an asinine argument. Obviously he wasn't better than those guys when injured because he wasn't playing, but he was consensus best PG before he got injured by anyone with half a brain. Now he is healthy and by all accounts more athletic than ever, worked on his jumpshot and IQ while injured.

The only one who has a argument of being as important a player this season is Durant but his team got much worse. It's pretty obvious that the only comparison with Lebron this year is Rose otherwise why would Lebron fans all be so worried and obsessed with Rose. You don't see them posting 100x about Durant or Deron.

If you hit your shots you aren't a chucker. Lebron has never been a chucker. Rose is.

Lebron was an 18 year old rookie playing on a lottery team. The very next year he shot 47% and every season after shot he has hit 48% or higher (except for 47.6% one season).


Meanwhile Rose has shot 44.5% and 43.5% the last 2 seasons as a 23 and 24 year old. He is regressing and those 2 seasons are clear chucking seasons.

Lebron= 1 chucking season out of 10 seasons- and that one was as a 18 year old rookie

Rose= 2 chucking seasons out of 4

D-Rose is in the same category as Jalen Rose and Ben Gordon?

Even though he lead his team to the ECF, best record in the league in 2011 and 2012 prior to injury?

Right. Completely defying expectations in the process, losing to a cowardly superstar stacked team in 2011 when his back court sidekick was Keith friggin Bogans.

Rose's heart and guts shits on LeBron James.

I don't know any Lebron fan that's worried about Rose. I actually enjoy watching Rose getting dominated by the Heat. Remember, making fun of rose is not the same as fearing him.

It's a shame when the city's pizza is better than the actual city's team.

At least you admitted it.
