ESPN (Mike and Mike) reported this morning there are quite a few news services reporting that Derrick Rose was "SCARED" to come back and play this year. One of my favorite quotes comes from Wizards Rookie Bradley Beal (as reported by Fox Sports): Rose, who suffered a torn ACL and two meniscus tears during last year’s playoffs, was cleared by the team to play, but never suited up for the Bulls. Cleared by the team to play. Suck it up Rose! You basically turned your back on your team! Don't give me the ol' "but it was a torn ACL" excuse... look at how many Running Backs in the NFL come back from a torn ACL within a matter of months. .
