Bulls Bits: Rose, Game 3, No More Leon Powe

Fast on the heels of winning the NBA ROY award, the New York Times dropped a pretty exceptional look at Derrick Rose and his agent, former Bull point guard, BJ Armstrong.

Meanwhile, with all the plaudits surrounding Rose, the Bulls still are a toothin' and clawin' with the Boston Celtics in their first round match that's knotted at one game apiece. Game three is tomorrow night at the United Center and the Bulls are imploring you to wear red and be noisy. Shocking, I know. In any case, with game three tomorrow night, now would be a great time for Boston's already depleted and injury-addled bench to get more bad news. -- Dramatic aside: Stranger at Door: KNOCK, KNOCK. Boston's Front Office: "Who's There?" SAD: "Bad News." BFO: "Bad News, Who?" SAD: Bad News, Leon Powe Just A'sploded His Knee."
So, ouch, sheesh! Celts are totally cursed with injuries and yeah, Chicago Bulls, you better win this series.

I just hope the Boston front line can get in foul trouble and give us some more hope. Oh yeah, we gotta stop that guy who wears #9 too...
