CHICAGO -- For Derrick Rose, it is a new beginning. Adidas ZX 700 Black . And it starts on his home court. The Chicago Bulls superstar will suit up for the first time at the United Center since his latest season-ending knee injury when the U.S. national team meets Brazil in a tuneup Saturday for the World Cup of Basketball. Its a journey in which the former MVP point guard hopes he shows he still is a franchise player, one capable of leading a championship contender. The Bulls are aiming high after a 48-win season in which Roses long-awaited comeback got cut short. He drew high praise practicing with Team USA in Las Vegas a few weeks ago. But until he plays in a game, questions will linger. This gives him an opportunity to knock off some of the rust thats built up after being sidelined most of the past two seasons. Thats why the Bulls were so gung-ho about him playing with Team USA this off-season, and for Rose, the benefits are easy to see. "Youre actually out there competing," he said. "There are so many elements of a basketball game and competing that it makes me feel like Im a hooper again and Im just happy that I get this opportunity to be here with these great players, great young players too, and really showcase my talent." Even with a long list of All-Stars withdrawing, including MVP Kevin Durant and the injured Paul George, the U.S. still has a deep team with Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, James Harden and Klay Thompson, among others. But on Saturday, all eyes will be on Rose. After all, hes been limited to just 49 regular-season games plus one playoff appearance the past three years. He sat out the 2012-13 season recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and just as he was working his way back last year, he wound up back on the shelf last November. A torn meniscus in his right knee cut off his long-awaited comeback at 10 games. U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski had no doubt Rose would be able to play because Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said he would be. Krzyzewski didnt realize Rose would be playing as well as he has. "I think hes outstanding," Krzyzewski said. "Look, hes one of the best guys in the whole world. Hes so easy to coach and wants to please. Its very neat to see how excited he is about being here. And his first game back to play in the United Center, as a Chicagoan Im ecstatic about what him and Tom has done for the Bulls." Thibodeau, an assistant for the U.S., said this is the perfect environment for his star to work his way back. "I like the idea of him coming back in this setting," Thibodeau said. "The quality of depth is so strong, were asking all these guys to sacrifice playing time and sacrifice some shots for the sake of the team, so he doesnt have the burden of having to score 25 points and play a lot of minutes. Just go out there and do your job." Rose said his confidence "is high right now." Hes in good shape and he believes he still is an elite player. The Bulls are counting on him to do just that, particularly after they struck out trying to reel in Carmelo Anthony. They made a hard push, only to see him re-sign with the New York Knicks. There were also talks with Minnesota about a Kevin Love trade, but he is headed to join LeBron James in Cleveland. The Bulls went the depth route, the most notable addition being Pau Gasol. With a new big man and the arrival of Nikola Mirotic from Europe and Doug McDermott in the draft, Chicago believes it has the weapons to contend for the Eastern Conference championship. That still hinges largely on Rose. "Physically, he looks like the Derrick Rose were used to seeing before he got hurt," Curry said. "Now, Im sure for him, its just about getting game reps and getting your rhythm back. You can go through drills and get your body right, but theres nothing like playing. I know hes excited about that opportunity starting tomorrow." Adidas Zx Flux Black . -- Von Miller is back -- and bigger than ever. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 Black . Off-Season Game Plan looks at a changing of the guard in the Motor City. Nicklas Lidstrom didnt miss the playoffs in 20 seasons with the Red Wings and, even without their number one option on the blueline, there is a solid enough core on this team to think that the Red Wings are going to remain competitive.The new Winnipeg NHL franchise has chosen its first bench boss. Claude Noel will be the man behind the bench when the team hits the ice of the MTS Centre to begin its inaugural season. Assistant general manager and director of hockey operations Craig Heisinger and general manager Kevin Chevaldayoff would not confirm Noels hiring on Thursday, but a formal announcement is expected prior to tomorrows Draft. Noel iss the former head coach of the American Hockey Leagues Manitoba Moose, where he spent one season compiling a 43-30-7 record and losing in the second round of the playoffs. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 Red. Prior to that, he spent four seasons as the head coach of the Milwaukee Admirals and three as an assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He was the interim head coach of the Blue Jackets for 24 games in 2010. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
