I mean, I'm not going to lie and say I had dreams of them winning the chip this year even if they got out of the Eastern Conference (any team out of the West would be a daunting task imo). It was just nice to see some vintage Rose performances even though he's been pretty mediocre throughout. Shame considering this is the best offensive CHI team in a long time. It's hard to deny that when they were firing on all cylinders, they weren't a championship contender.

Guess we'll have to rely on Snell to reaaaaaally step it up

yea i didnt think they were a title-caliber team but i think that's a small(er) issue given the huge doubts concerning their former superstar now

I wouldn't call myself a Rose apologist but depending on how serious this third injury is,,,, I might be inclined to recommend the Bulls cut their losses. Where was that Simmons article talking about his trade *cough* value

I like Rose. Fucking sucks that a guy you want to see do well, doesn't. For the stupidest fucking reasons too. But there's just no way he can be even an all star after this.

Okay just went through quick skimming of comments on Blog a Bull. People already calling for him to just cut the pesky meniscus already like Russ and Bledsoe. Their argument being, he tried repairing it the past two surgeries to ensure health but since they basically didn't work, better to remove it altogether at this point. Faster recovery time for playoffs too (wishful thinking of course)


The issue would be convincing Rose to do it in the first place.

That's what Wade did, worst career decision he ever made, according to him
post #20738 of 27239
Ehhhhh,,, the guy has 3 chips. That's not a bad career imo....longevity is obviously a different story
post #20739 of 27239
don't think anybody w/o an MD really knows if cutting the meniscus out will improve his chances at full health in the future
post #20740 of 27239
i heard if there's no meniscus the joint will constantly swell, cause pain, and eventually cause arthritis. at least from the wade articles i read when i drafted him. sounds pretty terrible. bulls need better medical staff

I think both sides has a bad. Wasn't it Brandon Roy who pretty much cut his career short because they removed the meniscus and he was practically playing bone to bone?
post #20742 of 27239
Rose should seriously consider retirement. Don't know he could recover mentally from this. Really sad.

Are the Mavs better without Rondo on the court? Carlisle benched him down a few buckets in the 3rd and the Mavs win...

They got into an argument.

He told him to go sit his ass down. Rondo has been abysmal, when is the last time he was available in a fantasy league?

Well those are long-term side effects, right? Like arthritis would be pretty much unavoidable, but that might not happen until after your career is over. Or it could take years. I just meant nobody would be able to tell him what's the right move for his basketball career w/o that kind of knowledge.

I thought Roy had degenerative knee issues before that? Or was that from lack of meniscus? I mean, Bledsoe last year removed part of his meniscus and the short term results have been good.
