Rose's Return Has Bulls Thinking About TitleCHICAGO (AP) - Welcome back, Derrick Rose. Welcome back to title contention, Chicago Bulls.
With their superstar point guard back after missing a season, the Bulls are once again taking aim at LeBron James and the Miami Heat for supremacy in the Eastern Conference and a shot at the NBA championship.
Rose says that's their "No. 1 goal."
The Bulls were good enough to win 45 games and advance a round in the playoffs despite a long list of injuries and illnesses down the stretch, even with Rose sitting out the year to rehab his surgically-repaired knee.
