CHICAGO – After the hated Miami Heat bounced his team from the playoffs earlier this week, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose was nowhere to be found at the team’s practice facility.
Once again, he left coach Tom Thibodeau and a few of his battered, beaten teammates to answer questions about his decision to sit out the entire 2012-13 season.
Then again, some things are best left unsaid.
For Team Try Hard, it was a season of sprained body parts and unfulfilled promise, one of too many ills and not enough thrills. The suggested title of the team video is Next Man Down.
