Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose among elite NBA guards

Is Morrissey trying to make nice with Chicago after his Jay Cutler garbage. Hey Rick you can't recover from saying that getting Cutler was a bad deal for the Bears.

Rick should go back to saying why the media likes Tyler Hansborough because he's white.

Get rid of this windbag, Trib.

Rick must be related to Nada. Either that or his gay lover.
Idiots, the both of them.

Coming from an idiot, that's a compliment to both of us.
Thanks!

Nada your not looking to smart right now. All you gotta do is look at the histroy of Bears first round busts. By the way if Cutler had been in the draft this year it would have taken the Bears 2 first round picks and 2nd to move up according to the point system used by Johnson which is now almost universal. Oh and your boy Orton is currently behind Simms as the starter.

As for Rick he is an idiot, he is claiming he is the only one who thought the number 1 overall pick in the draft was going to be good. That has got to be a joke everyone new he was going to be good. They were talking about him being the same league with CP3 before the draft.

Rick is just trying to find something he was right about.

There's always a correlation between stupid sports' fans and illiteracy.
Look at Creighton's opening sentence: "Nada your not looking to smart right now."
ROFL!
This stuff is PRICELESS!
For your own good, it should read:"Nada, you're not looking too smart right now."
By the way, Orton is as good or better than Cutler.

Clearly Rose's performance will stand out as one of the greats.

He even did what Michael couldn't do, and that was beat Boston. Not that Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and the rest... but

We do finally have a guy that can be exciting and light it up.

PS - Noah has looked good for awhile now and seems to click with Rose as DRose was setting him up all night. And Noah was on a team that won Two NCAA titles.

This is one horrific piece by Morrissey, who is a mediocre columnist to begin with.
Rose is nowhere near the elite guards of the NBA right now.
And Boston Bulls Fan? Jordan DID beat Boston.

So much hate. Rose was great. Sox look good. Hawks see second round, I think. Cubs, well...

The guy has to come up with opinions. It's his job. a few in every major market and a few in most every city with a rag in the world.

They are like the weatherperson.

Ripping them doesn't change the weather. But I guess it makes some people feel better about themselves.

Thankless job. But atleast they have one.

Why should anyone take this guy seriously when he says "when he wasn't playing particularly well this season." This guy is just about as bad as Mariotti. He's just another bigoted sportswriter who probably has nothing better to do then feed off negativity in everything about Chicago sports. Who knows maybe his wife isn't giving him any? That's probably why he's so riled up. Do yourself a favor Morrissey, follow your own advice before your "Bigmouth Strikes Again."

Morrissey is correct when he says Rose didn't play particularly well this season.

Regardless of grammer Nada the things you said were not intelligent. Jordan did not ever beat the Celtics in the playoffs and Cutler is way better than Orton is even in Orton's own dreams. I don't know if that is gramatically correct for you to regognize as intelligance but if it is not we can speak in mathamatics.

The Bulls knocked out the Celtics in one of their early playoff title runs. I don't remember which year that was.

Just remember when Rose is ROY -- Nada obviously knows more than all those dumba$$ voters. Yet somehow he's not included in the actual vote. What a shame...

Wrong, again.

Saturday was the first time the Bulls ever beat Boston in a playoff game.

If I'm wrong this time (and that's a big if) where have I ever been wrong before?
