Here's the thing. First off Rose has been getting crucified by critics. If you don't think so, then you you obviously were not paying much attention. He also has been getting crucified by some of his fans and what you call "haters". Bottom line, he received the same amount of criticism as Kobe or Lebron would.
Secondly, just because you are cleared to play by a doctor does not mean that "you're good". You can't just throw a guy out there that is used to carrying his team, expecting him to continue doing so without having the practices and workouts with his team. Hence why you see him practice and do other things with his teammates. Also you have to realize that he wasn't cleared til after the all-star break which was over half the season. And he wasn't even practicing with his team yet. You might want think to yourself if maybe the organization had anything to do with Rose not playing? I mean after all they are paying him and what you don't want is for him to come back too soon and injure himself again. So why not protect him by just sitting the season out and come back next season? That way he has the whole off season with his team.
So bottom line, in my mind he did the right thing. People are so foolish to question someones toughness just because they are taking the necessary time to heal up. It makes no sense.

I don't know about you, but I am a Bulls fan and not once have I ripped him for not playing. The true Bulls fans have not ripped the guy nor does he deserve to be. You are a fool if you think people in Chicago hate him for not playing or his fans. And sorry I don't expect him to be in another uniform soon because he still has 4 years left on his contract starting next season. And if you think the Bulls would ever think about trading their franchise player, you are delusional.

Gamekeeper, I'm with ya...but in my humble opinion Rose isn't even close to Lebron James and Kobe in career production and most importantly "rings".
Kobe and Lebron went out and bust buns every night...Kobe has played in 1,280 regular season games and 220 playoff games, and Lebron 879 regular season games and 158 playoff games. Rose is in his sixth season and has played 325 regular season games and only 29 playoff games. It's hard to even guage his talent or value based on the last couple years.
I never have understood the "love" for Derrick Rose. He is in his sixth season and averaging 18ppg, 3.7rpg and only 4.9apg. For guys like Dirk Nowitzki that is end of their career numbers.
Rose is good, but in my humble opinion I have always thought they expected to much from him and he was simply over rated. But as his career unfolds (if it ever does) time will tell.
