Too big. Too fast. Too Strong. Too good.

The line: 30 points (game-high), 9-for-17 from the field, 12-for-12 from the line (game-high) and 17 assists (career-high).

The crunch-time numbers: 10 points (3-for-3 from the field and 4-for-4 from the line) plus 3 assists in the final four minutes and nine seconds.

On the second night of back-to-backs.

On the road.

Against a Bucks team playing for their playoff lives.

More later.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to mash the Stacey King soundboard for an hour or two.

    It’s usually “too big too fast too strong too good”. The soundboard has it a bit mixed up.

    I hate our announcers…

    Derrick Rose is pretty good at basketball.

    that was a thing of beauty…seriously.

    it’s nights like these where Rose not only looks like the MVP this year, but the best player in the NBA.

    Chitown4life…I appreciate your passion for the Bulls and all, but would proper spelling and punctuation be asking for too much?

    What I love most about D-Rose is that he just refuses to lose. Night after night, the guy just finds some way to win. These last two have not been pretty, and I had that Cub fan-trained response to look away each time, but Derrick Rose will. not. lose. Can’t wait for that Miami-Boston 2nd round series, and for the Bulls to ravage the corpse of whichever team survives.

    “….The Bulls outscored the Bucks by 13 points in the 4th quarter, turning a 5-pt deficit into an 8-pt win. On the year the Bulls have been dominant in the 4th, outscoring their opponents by 201 points. No other team has outscored its opponents by 100 points in the final frame this season….”

    This is a staggering statistic! With the other high-caliber teams and players, I am shocked. Let the Bulls-haters suck on that straw…

    In all the controversy surrounding Derrick Rose’s MVP in the stat community, why is it that people forget Rose is still 22 years old? The guy could very well be a monster in two years time. The improvements he makes in season(defense, free throw attempts/shooting, finding the open guy to pass to) are incredible. He has a rare ability to score and distribute, and his upside is probably 26 ppg, 11 apg and 4 rebounds. In a few years, he’ll be a darling of the stat community.

    The Allen Iverson comparisons are absurd, this guy can distribute and gives a defensive effort.

    most impressive stats of the night, Bucks with no field goal for the last five minutes of the game. and dee rose with 17 assists. his 30 was damn nice, but those passes were beauty’s, 17 dimes are real deal point guard stats. go bulls !

    In a way I want to see what DRose does if he doesn’t get the MVP award this year. I see a man who doesn’t get mad, he gets even. I believe that DRose should get the MVP this year.

    I also believe that Thibs should get COY over Pop. Pop took his existing roster and adjusted roles. Thibs took 5 guys from last years Bulls and 7 new guys and moulded a top defensive team and a big winner in his first year as coach.

    The front office should also get an award for getting the right players and right coach to make this season possible.

    What’s really scary is that Rose has not yet reached his full potential. He’s only 22, his game has come a long way, yet he’s constantly working on it. In my opinion, he definitely has the potential to be the best player in the game. Some of you may disagree, but tell me, how many people really thought he would actually win the MVP this year, or even be in the conversation?

    I read a blog where some loser tried his best to argue that D-Rose was not a top five talent. The Bum even had Chris Paul on his list before Rose. That’s fine, I guess. And some of you may not have Rose in your top five players in the league, but I would take Rose over any player in the league right now for several reasons:

    1. He’s 22, and has not yet reached his full potential whereas players like Kobe, Lebron and Wade already have. And btw, getting ready to win his first MVP. Scary! Howard and Durant are still improving, so it’s a wait and see for them, but I would still chose Rose.

    2. Rose gives you the best chance at winning championships over the next ten years. Kobe is winding down, Lebron can’t seem to get it done, while Rose lives to win.

    3. Most important, Rose impacts the game from his position more than any of the other top players in the league. He does whatever is needed to win. If you need him to score 30, no problem. If his teammates are hot, he’ll get them the ball. he draws double teams and can still find the open man. He’s a true floor general yet he’s as good a weapon as any in the league. Most of the other top players are great weapons, but not floor generals.

    Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of great players in the league that have been doing it longer, but if I were picking a player today to build around, it would be Rose. Great point guards are rare, and they are the easiest, I repeat EASIEST to build around (which is why Lebron is an idiot for choosing to play with Wade over Rose).
