Derrick Rose’s All-Star Status Uknown

D-Rose’s hip injury could end up keeping him out of the festivities this weekend: “X-rays were negative and Rose was taken to the hospital for an MRI at Rush University Medical Center. The Bulls seem reasonably sure there is no fracture and are hopeful Rose will be fine in a few days. He was wearing the padded compression shorts that are popular among NBA players these days. It’s too soon to tell if he’ll be able to participate in Skills Challenge and All-Star Game this weekend in Dallas. Rose is the first Bulls player chosen as an all-star in 12 years.”

    We could possibly have five injury replacements… six if Billups has to be replaced! A replacement of a replacement!

    How many guys would I have to personally hobble to get Shaq in the game?

    this all star game is turning into the pro bowl

    I think the replacement has to be J.Smoove. Yesterday I was hoping for jennigns to replace AI, but since a replacement doesnt have to be the same position I say J.Smoove for Rose. That being said, hopefully Rose can play.

    as silly as it might sound, but derrick needs to consider other options before trying to dunk on dwight..

    Is this why Vince scored 48 points the other day?

    okaaay okay lets all calm down with the replacement talk.
    it was a bad fall, he got up, x-rays were negative, and he got like 4 days til the game.

    he could probably do that skills challenge if he felt like doing so too.

    bottom line is, its his first ever all star game. dont think a silly bruise is gonna hold him back from enjoying it

    and he wasn’t trying to dunk on howard. at all. still made the shot too.

    We want vince, we want vince!!! AI should not only give up his spot, but he should retire and get the hell outta here with whatever dignity he has left.

  • Candice

    He’s on his way to Dallas via Chicago Bulls twitter.

  • Tommy Patron

    @ smiles-The shot went in as an and-1. I don’t believe he was going to try to bang it.

  • slamfan4life

    Forget all of you talking about replacements, Rose will make it

    No one wants Vince, his old ass cant do anything

    Shaq sucks too, cant do shit anymore
