Like every offseason Derrick Rose is in LA. But, as Tom Thibodeau has said it won’t be like it’s been in the past. He isn’t there to train this time. Rose’s trip is to visit with his Adidas West Coast family. This summer the Bulls want to keep him close to Chicago to workout more with the team. They hired a few of Rose’s LA medical and training staff at the start of the season with the hopes of not only keeping him healthy this season, but also, to avoid him spending a lot of time in LA during the offseason. With most of his resources now in Chicago, Rose has fewer reasons to leave for sunny California.
Yesterday, in a very un-Rose like way, he took to social media to update fans on his whereabouts.
It was recently reported that Rose will in fact join Team USA’s training camp this summer toward the end of July in Las Vegas. He will look to be 100% and hope to make the team, as well as work off the rust and start the NBA season off with a bang. All the while praying his injuries and bad luck are far behind him.
