Despite being medically cleared to play for months, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose could not bring himself to take the court in the later half of the NBA season or any of the postseason. The hope obviously is that Rose will have mentally prepared himself by the start of training camp at the end of the summer.
Maybe a little time away from the game and the pressure to play will help. Rose is going on an extended marketing and promotional tour with Adidas across Europe next month. Rose will visit Serbia, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Croatia, Slovenia and the United Kingdom on his trip. Maybe someone over there can convince him he's ready to play.
