In only a couple of days, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will play in his first regular season NBA game in two years and Miami Heat LeBron James is happy that he will get to face him.
Recently, LeBron spoke with Mike Wallace of ESPN’s Heat Index and this is what he said about Derrick Rose’s return:
“I’m happy and thrilled that he’s back,” James said as the Heat prepared to open defense of their second straight NBA championship. “I’m happy with what he did last year, to be able to stand strong throughout everything, throughout all of the adversity of everybody criticizing him about what he should do. He did what was best for him.”
“It’s just great to see [Rose] back to full strength,” James said. “The game is happy to have him back.”
