The Chicago Bulls will run with a healthy Derrick Rose

With a solid perimeter game, Rose will be virtually impossible to defend.

Megastar Derrick Rose hit the game-winning jumper with 5.7 seconds left as the Bulls overcame the New York Knicks 82-81 on Thursday night in Chicago.

Battling a stiff neck and playing at the United Center for the first time since April 2012, the 24-year-old Rose finished with 18 points, six rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes.

Rose is shooting a hideous 29% from the field over two contests and clearly remains rusty after an 18-month absence from the hardwood.

Nevertheless, the youngest man to ever earn the MVP award looks fast, quick and explosive and will quickly readapt.

As a unit, the Bulls (1-1) are destined to dominate this winter with Rose, Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and Joakim Noah.

Even without the first overall pick in 2008, the fifth-seeded Bulls nearly forced the Miami Heat to fly back to Chicago for a Game 6 last May.

Reportedly now a better shooter and more dynamic leaper, a blooming Rose can help Chicago wilt the Heat next spring.

Regardless of what ultimately occurs in the playoffs, Derrick Rose is back and the elite Bull will trample the 76ers this weekend in Philadelphia.
