The Wait: April 29, 2012 – October 29, 2013

He’s back.

After nearly 18 months of basketball inaction — including absences from 17 playoff games and the 2012 Olympics — Derrick Rose returns to the hardwood tonight against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. As such, I am compiling my full Derrick Rose archives, which includes all stories about him or peripherally about him. Enjoy!

Cheers,

JACK
