It’s no surprise that Derrick Rose is ready to play in this upcoming season. He was nearly ready a few months ago, but now with last season and the summer behind him, he’s not only physically ready, but mentally, too. He obviously continued to work on his shooting, his leg strength, his agility, all of which he mentioned in his latest interview. But what got me really riled up is what he gives the most credit to: his confidence.
“I think the only thing that changed in my game is the confidence,” Rose said. “My confidence grew as a player and you’ll see that when I play.”
We’ve seen other Bulls in the past feel similarly confident, and things worked out just fine.
