Guys, we're less than 40 days away from Bulls vs. Heat to start the regular season! (39 to be exact...)
As such, the timing seems just right for us to get irrationally excited about our Chicago Bulls and #TheReturn of D. Rose. Today it was revealed that he's covering the upcoming November issue of the basketball mag bible, SLAM. His bold quote on the cover, as The Bulls Show pointed out, rings similarly to D. Rose's bold quote on the cover of SLAM prior to his MVP season (see: below). This, plus excerpts of Rose's interview with the mag, are all reasons why I'm especially anxious today for October 29th when it's official "'Go Time".
On goals he has headed into the season:
“It’s only one goal that I have, really my whole team has, and that’s to win a Championship. All the individual goals, of course we appreciate ‘em and we love to get ‘em, but our No. 1 goal is to go out there and play as hard as we can so that we can be raising that trophy at the end.”
