Joelseppi of No Bulljive is reporting that Derrick Rose will absolutely return for #thereturn this Monday to return against the Denver Nuggets for a return to basketball…return-style. The signs are obvious and not in any way a loose conspiracy. Fact: The staff of No Bulljive bought 6 tickets for the game Monday. Fact: The mother of No Bulljive’s creator flew in yesterday from Phoenix and is attending the game Monday. Fact: The infant son of reporter Joelseppi had Bulls onsies bought for him today in anticipation of the game on Monday. Fact: During a recent practice, Rose was able to turn, then turn again, which by definition is a “re-turn”. Fiction: a source close to the Bulls and D Rose told us directly that Rose will return for sure against the Nuggets.
