Most interesting part of Rose's comments today? He said he wasn't having fun during first comeback last year. "I wasn't enjoying the game"

KC Johnson

Rose said Noah is texting him often: "He’s been hearing about how I’ve been playing and it’s pushing him in his rehab with his knee."

KC Johnson

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo on Chicagoan Anthony Davis' chance to start in Spain: "If we were to throw it up today, he would be"

Nick Friedell

Paul George on Derrick Rose: "He looks better. He looks like he's coming off the MVP year."

KC Johnson

DRose said he and Pau Gasol likely will have dinner in Spain. How's that for confidence level for U.S. and Spain, FIBA World Cup favorites.

Joe Cowley

Rose said he hasn't spoken to Kevin Love since all the rumors started. He saw him briefly in Vegas and gave him a what's up.

Joe Cowley

Rose admitted that his comeback last year was tough because he wasn't enjoying the game anymore.

KC Johnson

Beyond fact Cavaliers can offer Wiggins, Bulls really, really like roster and depth they have assembled.

KC Johnson

Re KLove: Bulls were more in on him before draft when they had assets (Boozer deal, 3 non-guaranteed deals, 2 picks) they no longer have.

Joe Cowley

Rose on Gar/Pax offseason: “I have that sense that they went for it. They gave it their all, we got who we could get.’’

KC Johnson

Gar on DRose: "I haven’t seen him back down to contact in any way. He has made plays in the key and at the rim on both ends of the floor."

Joe Cowley

As far as questions if Rose will make the team? He admitted that he has plans to eat dinner with Pau once he gets to Spain. Whooops!

Joe Cowley

Rose weighs 209 with 4.5% body fat. For those that like numbers like that.

Joe Cowley

Forman likes current group he has, but admitted NBA offseason never ends and he's always listening.

Joe Cowley

Rose said this current Bulls team will be the most talented he's ever played on.

Nick Friedell

Rose says first three days have been 'excellent'. Says he has no pain after day 3.

DRose: "I feel great. I don't have any aches. I'm really taking care of my body." Then he actually knocked on wood.

KC Johnson

DRose on Thibs: "This is Day 3 and his voice is gone."

Nick Friedell

Gar says he's happy with where Bulls are. Doesn't rule out making another move. Says NBA is now a '12 month cycle'

KC Johnson

Gar Forman: "We really like the group we have."

Nick Friedell

Bulls GM Gar Forman is here in Vegas. Very pleased with how Rose is playing. Reiterates organization is happy Rose is here.

KC Johnson

Gar on DRose: "Defensively, he has been spectacular."

Aggrey Sam

Thibs draws up nice ATO play: Wall inbounds lob to Davis from halfcourt. Trying to make this late comeback like it's a big game in January.

Joe Cowley

Lillard hits 3 to all but ice loss. Thibs could be short with the media today. Tough loss.

Joe Cowley

Thibs down 4 with 42 seconds left. Drawing up plays on the dry board.

Sam Smith

Thibs in animated discussion with ref seems to be on way to first ever T in a scrimmage.

Joe Cowley

Thibs staring down ref after a call at the top of the key. Yes, it's a scrimmage. #everygamematters

Sam Smith

After he blocked shot, Rose sitting out. Coaches say he looks best of all guys who sit down.

Aggrey Sam

Parsons and Millsap might be auditioning for potential extra stretch 4 role.

Sam Smith

Players yell "ice" all the time meaning they are looking for Gervin on wing or playing Bulls defense

Aggrey Sam

Mason Plumlee's odds to make this team aren't the worst.

Sam Smith

Every USA coach and asst sits during scrimmage but Thibodeau. Maybe no one would give Tom a chair

Joe Cowley

John Wall? Still a bad shot waiting to happen!

Aggrey Sam

Thibs screaming "Kyle!" when he's on D, circa 2011.

Aggrey Sam

Boogie is going hard. Some good, some bad, but a lot of effort on both ends.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau's voice is completely gone. He's working the raspy scream today.

Joe Cowley

Yet to see Thibs coached team lose a scrimmage this week.

Aggrey Sam

Also driving to pass more than to score. Searching out open shooters in mid-air.

Nick Friedell

Team USA practice opens up to media. First impact play made by Rose with nice block in transition.

Aggrey Sam

Derrick really is playing D. Blocked shots on back-to-back possessions: DeRozan J, Curry layup.

Joe Cowley

Rose with a ridiculous block in Day 3 scrimmages.

KC Johnson

DRose scrimmaging with Anthony Davis, Paul George, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson today.

DRose: "Both days were same. I only had 1 turnover both days. As a PG, that's all I'm worried about, that & making sure I'm pressuring ball"
