Rose, Noah, McDermott & The Bulls Spotted In LA (Videos)
Entering the 2014-15 NBA season, the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers were widely considered to be the favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference. This prognostication of course hinged on the health of former league MVP Derrick Rose. Thus far, Rose has taken the court in just 10 of 18 games, averaging 16.3 points and 5.1 assists per contest, for a Chicago team that currently boasts an 11-7 record (first place in the Central Division).
Without a doubt, Rose's health and availability will be the dominant storyline for the team moving forward, both in the short and long term. No matter how scrappy and determined the rest of the team continues to perform, sadly, the goal of winning an NBA title will not be accomplished unless Rose becomes the player he once was.
Earlier this season, the Bulls stopped through Los Angeles to battle the Clippers. Below are a series of iFolloSports.com original videos of the team, as they boarded their charter bus, outside the Beverly Wilshire hotel.
