The Return of DRose Episode 1 “Belief”

The Return of DRose Episode 1 “Belief”

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: The road back from an ACL tear isn’t easy, but D Rose shows us what it takes to be the best.

 This is episode 1 “Belief” of the D Rose documentary that will follow his return to the Chicago Bulls. “I was injured basically almost the whole year so I’m thinking like in the playoffs; I’m, like I’m good. First game in the playoffs, get injured. As everyone knows this was the season ending ACL tear that made every Bulls fan cringe and any true basketball fan sad. It was suppose to be the year the Bulls made another run at a championship.

“When I tore my ACL I didn’t think that it was nothing big so the whole time I’m in the MRI machine, I’m just praying and crying and stuff, hoping that it wasn’t torn. Think of your most down day, and times that by 100. There ain’t enough to describe how I felt at that time.” Instead of winning a ring, Chicago exited the playoffs early and got the even worse news that Rose was likely out most of the following year.


“I’m back at zero again and starting back over. I never had a base – working on my upper body strength, working on my balance, working on my core. It has definitely been tough but I’ll be alright. I know it’s going to help me in the long run.” The first episode of D Rose’s return shows the difficult realization of how bad he was injured as well as the long road to recovery. Stay tuned for more updates on Rose and the Bulls future.
