D-Rose has been healthy through his entire Ball career, (HS, & College) until this season. What really caused the injuries for Rose is being Chicago's ONLY answer to everything. When you only have 1 horse to ride you eventually wear it out riding it into the ground. The Bulls need some REAL offensive scoring options other than D-Rose. They need a Big who can create for himself of the dribble in the paint against another big-man. They also need a swing-man who can run a Iso and get to the bucket. So that Rose doesn't always have to carry the scoring load. In EVERY close game teams know who is getting the ball. and all that contact, all that hitting the floor, all the minutes add up and take a toll on a persons body, young or old.
Rose is the most Dynamic scoring PG in the game today. There is only one other PG who can score in the paint like him that is Tony Parker. Parker actually has better numbers. But Rose is a better shooter, plus he adds the ability to dunk to his inside game. Parker is a VERY weak dunker, (he's been rejected by the rim twice in games on wide open dunks). If the Bulls get Rose the help he needs, so he can reduce his work load, Rose will be poised to become (without question) one of the best PGs to ever play the game.
